Applied kinesiology (AK) is also known as Muscle testing or manual muscle testing (MMT); is an alternative practice that is used to effectively diagnose structural, muscular, chemical, and mental ailments.

Applied kinesiology is not a part of the science of kinesiology, which is the study of the movement of the human body.The basic idea behind AK is similar to one of Sir Isaac Newton’s Laws of Motion, which states, “for every action in nature there is an equal and opposite reaction.”Applied kinesiology takes this concept and applies it to the human body. This means that any internal issues you may be experiencing would be accompanied by a related muscle weakness.

Following this thought process, you should be able to perform a muscle test to diagnose any underlying medical condition. Muscle testing conducted in applied kinesiology differs from standard orthopedic muscle testing.For example: You have a muscle test performed and your bicep is deemed “weak.” A person performing the muscle test with a standard view of medicine might suggest working out your biceps more at the gym.A person following the principles of applied kinesiology may suggest that you have this weakness because of an underlying problem with your body.
