What is Applied Kinesiology?

Osteopath, Islington, London, N1 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.

  My mum, husband, 2 year old son and I have come to this clinic a number of times over the past year to try and figure out what might be causing various issues. Things are always explained clearly and its such a friendly environment to get these things sorted in. Incredibly knowledgable I always leave having learnt something new about myself physically and what I need to consider nutritionally. This is now my first port of call as my GP doesn't really know me but here I feel like I usually get to the bottom of things much quicker. We like to call Karen the Wizard in our house she really is excellent!
