Applied Kinesiology is a specific form of diagnosis using muscle testing as the primary feedback mechanism. Muscle testing facilitates communication between the brain and body, and helps evaluate structural, nutritional, and mental health needs. Doctor Lisa utilizes Applied Kinesiology, nutritional counseling, chiropractic care and food sensitivity testing to diagnose and treat her patients. Her goal as a kinesiologist is to educate and advocate for health and wellness for her patients.
Kinesiology establishes the priority of the body’s healing needs and evaluates energy transformations created by both manual and non-manual therapeutic procedures. Treatment can include light massage to relax or stimulate key muscles at specific points on the body. Kinesiology is believed to work with the electromagnetic energies of the body to bring them into balance.
Although there are many different methods for applying Kinesiology, a common one involves asking a question of the body, then pressing down on the extended arm of the patient. Resistance to lowering will have one meaning, an easily lowered arm another. The response is then interpreted by the practitioner.
