What is Applied kinesiology?


Applied Kinesiology (AK), which was developed in 1964 by George Goodheart, DC, is a diagnostic tool and health care system used by medical doctors, homeopaths, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and many other alternative-care practitioners.

AK is one of the most comprehensive and holistic forms of natural therapy that recognizes the importance of body, mind and spirit in health and healing. It integrates the ancient wisdom of Eastern medicine with the best of modern science to enhance health and function.

AK uses muscle feedback as a stress monitor, to identify and correct imbalances in the person’s structural, chemical, mental, and emotional energy systems. More importantly, it addresses the communication and connection between these systems.


My Focus


I focus on the individual and the understanding that we all have many different things going on with our bodies. Applied Kinesiology works for all areas of life and the techniques can be applied to assist you to obtain health and happiness in the aspects of your choice.

I use muscle techniques that allow you to monitor the flow of energy throughout your body on a very specific level. Through this technique, I can determine which factors are disrupting the body’s natural flow of energy. That natural flow of energy is essential to good health and freedom from pain.

What Will I Experience?


I will observe your posture, gait and range of motion. After these tests are completed, muscle strength is tested against pressure exerted. If the muscle stands up to pressure, it’s deemed “strong” or “locked”; those that give way to pressure are considered “weak” or “unlocked,” and are deemed indicative of a problem. 

When AK is used to determine whether a particular food or other substance weakens (or strengthens) for you, the food may be held in the hand as a muscle is tested.  I may also assess emotional well-being by testing muscle strength while you imagine being in a troubling or tense situation or with a problematic person.

AK treatments range from deep neuro-lymphatic massage, joint manipulation and realignment to nutritional therapies and dietary and/or vitamin supplement suggestions.

Cancellation & Rescheduling


You must notify me within 48 hours of a scheduled appointment to reschedule. A $25.00 fee may apply for rescheduling, as others could have used the time slot. If you fail to arrive for an in-person session, you have the option to reschedule - however you will be charged in full for the missed appointment.


Please keep in mind...


While many have experienced healing during or after receiving AK treatment, there are no claims, promises or guarantees of any particular outcome, and neither is there diagnosing nor treating specific health issues or challenges. As I facilitate healing, I proceed with the heartfelt intent that the client’s greatest good manifest, whatever that may be. I acquiesce to the wisdom of these healing frequencies, which in turn select what the appropriate healing is at that time. You are solely responsible for seeing to and continuing with your own medical treatment.

Is Applied Kinesiology right for me?


Muscle testing is a reliable guide for life choices (big and small).

Our bodies are much more aware of the energy of the universe than our conscious minds are – that is, until we train our minds to become aware.

We are naturally attuned to a higher intelligence, but most people either are not in touch with their bodies, or they do not believe that the body has a language of its own.

Using muscle testing is a great way to become attuned to your body. And through the body, you attune to the higher intelligence.

The muscles’ response is a manifestation of intuition. It’s the higher intelligence speaking to you through your body.

When you learn to apply this knowledge, and apply it frequently whenever you are unsure about a situation, you will dramatically change the quality of the decisions you make.

We make a lot of decisions based on what we think we should do… but these ‘shoulds’ are not always aligned with our higher good. So don’t be afraid to ask questions.

And more importantly, don’t be afraid to listen (the truth is not always what you want to hear) and act on your intuitive guidance. It will not steer you wrong, even if you have trouble believing it initially.

As you begin seeing positive results based on muscle-tested decisions, you’ll come to trust your intuition, and the way it speaks to you through your body.

Muscle testing is a way to move toward a life that best suits who you are at the core level.

You will be filled with insight and inspiration as you begin to honor your body’s language, and you will be happier and happier the more you make decisions that are aligned with your higher self.
