Our practitioners specialise in techniques that include Applied Kinesiology and Cranial Osteopathy, and we receive a lot of recommendations based on our individual and effective approach to assessment and treatment.
What is Applied Kinesiology?
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system using basic muscle testing for evaluating areas of dysfunction within the body.
The method of AK is primarily concerned with neuromuscular function and how it relates to the regulation of structural, chemical and mental physiology. It uses the principle that the body is a self-maintaining, self-correcting mechanism.
AK aims to restore the balance of structural, chemical and mental factors which together unite to form the 'triad of health'. Health is composed of structural, chemical and mental factors which must be equally balanced producing the 'triad of health'. When a person has ill health, at least one of these factors is involved and often two, or all three. The principle of Applied Kinesiology is to analyse and check all three factors and treat any or all that are disrupted.
When visiting an AK Practitioner, expect to be involved. They will test for basic mechanical defects; the possible connection of visceral dysfunction (that is, the function of the associated gland or organ); stress levels in the body; and, where relevant, cranial and pelvic distortion and toxicity/allergy problems. Treatment may involve any combination of manipulative work, guidance in self-treatment, nutritional support, homeopathic remedies and treatment to aid stress-related problems.
I have been going to Islington Osteopathy Clinic for over a year now and have seen great results on a variety of fronts. I love their holistic and realistic approach to health. They are also excellent at listening and observing to get the best results for your treatment.
