Applied kinesiology (AK) is a system of using manual muscle testing to correct muscular imbalances. It incorporates elements of Sacro-occipital technique (SOT), craniosacral, nutrition-response as well as meridian therapy (acupressure).
I use AK primarily to help support the adjustments, so that you get more relief, faster. Muscles attach to bone. If muscle imbalances persist, they may cause the underlying skeletal structure to continued to be pulled out of alignment. Instead of adjusting the same joints over and over, I use AK to correct the muscle imbalances, so that you ‘hold’ the adjustment better.
