Applied Kinesiology

AK is a technique of communicating with the body by using the body's electromagnetic energy (much like the biofeedback received from an electrocardiogram) to detect organ and nutritional strengths or deficiencies. It also assists in determining the most effective course of healing for a particular individual. By stimulating the body's energy meridians, a trained professional can observe and translate nutritional message from the body's bio-electrical system.

Applied Kinesiology is one of the fastest growing natural therapies in the world. Practiced in over 100 countries, many believe it is the most effective stand-alone technology of the future in alternative medicine. Kinesiology is used to detect and release blockages in the energy pathways of the body. These blockages can be caused by physical, emotional, biochemical or electromagnetic stressors. Through rebalancing its energies, the body's innate healing ability is restored, thereby improving health, enhancing performance, reducing stress and enabling us to achieve our highest potentials.

Autonomic Response Testing (ART)

Autonomic Response Testing
(ART), also known as Applied Kinesiology (AK), is a simple safe, natural method of analyzing the body's structural, physical, mental, emotional and nutritional needs. Imbalances or deficiency in any of these areas could cause or contribute to various acute or chronic health problems. ART is a technique that utilizes a muscle response as an indicator and assessment of the life force or bio-electrical status of each organ, gland, system, or structure. This energy assessment is accomplished by testing bio-electrical reflexes, which relate to acupuncture points and meridians (the body's bio-electrical pathways), and monitoring the reactance of the muscle when in contact with these points.

Too often, the symptoms of health problems are treated while the underlying cause of the problem continues to go undetected. For example, headaches are treated with aspirin, coughs are treated with cough medicine. If these symptoms persist, expensive tests are run and stronger medications are prescribed. With ART, a practitioner can determine is a health problem is structural, physical, nutritional, mental or emotional. ART is not a method of diagnosis. It is a means by which a health practitioner uses the body's electrical pathways to accurately determine the root cause of health problems.

Autonomic Response Testing, is a technique based on the bio-electrical reflexes of the body that  correspond brain signaling, organs, and metabolic processes. When an organ is imbalanced, there is either increased or decreased electrical activity around that reflex. The practitioner can pick up that signal through a simple muscle testing procedure. For example, there are reflexes to indicate if and why a person is retaining fluid. Fluid is responsible in many cases of obesity. There are reflexes for yeast infection, staphylococcus, streptococcus, tired blood (anemia), reproductive problems, parasites airborne allergies, virus, gall bladder, spleen etc. In many cases, a reflex will point to a problem that is sub-clinical or simply went undetected by traditional medical forms of testing.

How does Autonomic Response Testing work?

Hundreds of miles of nerves carry electrical energy and connect with every organ, gland, muscle and tissue. There are approximately 75 known reflex areas on the skin which represent various organs, glands and bone structures. When the body becomes ill there is an interruption of nerve energy to these reflexes. The reflex, when tested, will act similar to a circuit breaker under an overload.

To test a bio-electrical reflex, the ART or Applied Kinesiology practitioner will use the subject's arm muscle (or any other muscle) as a "circuit" indicator. When the practitioner's fingertip comes near or touches a healthy reflex, the arm muscle will remain very strong. Nerve energy is flowing freely. The practitioner will not be able to push the person's arm down without exerting significant force.

If the deltoid muscle spontaneously fails, and the practitioner can easily push the subject's arm down, a "hot circuit breaker" has been located. The bio-electrcal nerve energy has been interrupted. There is either an excess or deficiency of electrical nerve impulses flowing to the test muscle. Using this bio-feedback information, the practitioner will know if the problem is structural, physical or nutritional.
