If you believe that all problems can be corrected by subluxation reduction stop reading now.
If you want one routine that is applied to all patients, stop reading now.
If you wish to treat the whole person, search for and correct causes, diagnose with more ease, not be an allopathic practitioner, read on.
Is a diagnostic tool, not a treatment modality. It does not replace other diagnoses but, correctly applied, adds a very useful one.
The essence of kinesiology is the use of the manual muscle testing to evaluate the motor response of the central nervous system to a sensory challenge. That is, it is a test of functional neurology.
The founder of Applied Kinesiology, the original technique from which all the other “Kinesiologies” have derived, is the late Dr. George Goodheart, a Chiropractor from USA.
Having this powerful diagnostic tool has led to the refinement and incorporation of many treatment modalities and the development of many new techniques within AK.
The Five Factors of the IVF (Intervertebral Foramen) are:
Subluxation, peripheral nerve entrapment, neurotransmitter disturbance, improper stimulation of receptors.
Applied Kinesiology does not teach how to perform basic diagnostic procedures and adjustive procedures that have already been taught as part of basic professional training.
It does add another set of diagnostic tools to assess:
NL Neurolymphatic Reflexes
These are cutaneous visceral reflexes that affect the lymphatic drainage of specific organs in the body. They relate to specific muscle/organ dysfunctions.
They may be used both diagnostically and for treatment.
NV Neurovascular Reflexes
In 1966, Goodheart related the vascular points to specific organ/muscle combinations. They may be used both diagnostically and for treatment.
CSF Cerebrospinal Fluid
In neurology we are taught “The more rostral, the more central, the greater the effect”.
What is more rostral than cranial function?
Restoration of craniosacral function may effect:
|A holding force or thrust placed into an articulation.
A holding force applied to an organ or gland.
|Chemical / Nutritional||Gustatory
|Applied by testing a substance in the mouth.
By smelling a substance
|Mental / Emotional Conceptual||Patient holds a picture, concept or memory.|
Therapy localization tells where a problem is, challenge helps the analysis of what to do for it.
Challenge can be used to evaluate all three sides of the triad of health.
The term “Kinesiology” and “Applied Kinesiology” have been used by all manner of professional and unprofessional bodies and practitioners. To protect the public and the good name of excellent AK practitioners, the term “Professional Applied Kinesiology” was coined and the phrase and logo registered in most countries, including Australia.
To attend a PAK Certification series the requirement are:
“Professional education with a minimum of 3500 hours and a degree such as D.C., D.O., D.D.S., D.M.D., M.D., Ph.D. in Psychology, with a license to diagnose if available under local law”.
The essence of qualification is a 3500+ hours degree that covers all the basic health sciences and a license to diagnose as a primary contact practitioner.
Final and sub-final year students of degrees as outlined may also attend and examine for certification.
Is eight weekend seminars with Certification examination on the afternoon of Session 8 for those who wish to show their true colours as a Professional Applied Kinesiologist.
To encourage full knowledge and application of the series, those who attend this whole series and pass Certification at the final session have session 8 free, the fee, or equivalent for the full series payment option, will be reimbursed.
