Kinesiology is a holistic therapy which uses muscle response testing to measure the motor response of the central nervous system to a sensory challenge. By doing this, imbalances can be determined and methods to rebalance the body can be indicated. Kinesiology, derived from the Greek word for movement, 'kinesis', is the study of the mechanics of bodily movements. This branch of study was started by Dr. George Goodheart, who was a chiropractor, but later absorbed the techniques of traditional Chinese medicine, including acupuncture, to set up a model of disease as a disturbance of energy flow in the body, rather than as a physical entity. It evaluates health by exploring the biofeedback from muscles. A key principle of applied kinesiology includes identifying stress which strains the whole body and that may manifest objectively as a weakening of a single muscle. Kinesiology visualizes muscles as linked to specific organs, and it uses manual muscle testing to evaluate the health of the patient. Whereas conventional medicine uses muscle testing as a means of assessing the structural and functional health of the neuromuscular unit, applied kinesiology makes use of this technique to understand organ-related, nutritional or emotional imbalances in the body. This testing employs the strength or weakness of a muscle to get information about the organ that it is linked to, and the requirement of the body for a particular nutrient. The muscle testing employed is by holding the muscle in isometric contraction against resistance applied externally, rather than voluntary contraction against an immovable object. This is called Kendall’s technique. Provocative tests are used along with muscle testing. This form of manual muscle testing thus identifies the problem, whether in the physical (in relation to the nervous, muscular or skeletal system), emotional or biochemical (metabolic) realm, as well as in the mental, non-organic sphere, with disease which is not arising or related to the symptomatic systems. Practitioners of applied kinesiology claim to promote physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health by identifying and treating these problems. Kinesiologists try to work with and utilise the healing powers, or life forces, of the body itself. They draw support from Chinese acupuncture, as well as from chiropractics. It is also partly based upon applied kinesiology, which measures muscle strength. It is therefore not based upon the Western model of medicine.
