Applied Kinesiology, also referred to as “AK” and well known as “Biomechanics”, was developed by Dr. George Goodheart in 1964. Dr. Goodheart used bioenergetics response by testing the strength of his patient’s muscles. This highly customized and detailed system of analysis allowed Dr. Goodheart to evaluate numerous aspects of a patient's state of health by evaluating and treating postural and muscular dissimilarities, neurovascular and neurolymphatic points, subluxations, cranial-sacral movements, acupuncture meridians and nutritional standing.
