Applied Kinesiology (AK), is a system of manual muscle testing used to identify structural, biochemical and other imbalances. AK allows Dr. Smith to target a specific problem and identify the proper healing technique to correct the problem, such as releasing a chronic muscle spasm, making a structural adjustment to restore optimum joint movement or supplying a needed nutrient. AK is a system of communication between doctor and patient that allows the doctor to quickly determine what your body needs to get you to the next level of health. For example, you might have symptoms of low energy, weight gain, and depression that lead you to suspect you’re having problems with your thyroid. A muscle test, where the doctor physically challenges one of your muscles, or other simple functional tests can show abnormalities that may be “invisible” on a standard blood test. An additional series of muscle tests will let the doctor know what nutritional supplement your body is missing and which reflex points to stimulate to encourage a more speedy and graceful healing process.
