A Simple Kinesiology Test - Tune In To Your Body. 5 - Kinesiology (Self Testing) Applied kinesiology. Applied kinesiology (AK) is a technique in alternative medicine claimed to be able to diagnose illness or choose treatment by testing muscles for strength and weakness.[1] Applied kinesiologists are often chiropractors, but they may also be naturopathic physicians, physicians, nurses, physical therapists, or veterinarians.

According to their guidelines on allergy diagnostic testing, the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology stated there is “no evidence of diagnostic validity” of applied kinesiology,[2] and another study has shown that as an evaluative method, AK "is no more useful than random guessing",[3] and the American Cancer Society has said that "scientific evidence does not support the claim that applied kinesiology can diagnose or treat cancer or other illness".

Applied kinesiology, as described above, should not be confused with kinesiology, which is the scientific study of human movement. History and current use[edit] George J. Claims[edit] Scientific research[edit] The Body Meridians - An Energy map. The Energy Network of the Body Our energy flow affects how we feel, how we think, and the over all condition of our health situation. When the body's life-force energy becomes blocked, various imbalances will result.

For centuries, in China, Japan, Tibet, India and other countries, life has been considered as a bio-electrical/vibrational energy phenomenon. It is only because of the existence of this energy in our body that we can move, breathe, digest food… think and even feel. Different cultures call this energy by different names... Meridian (Chinese medicine) The meridian system (simplified Chinese: 经络; traditional Chinese: 經絡; pinyin: jīngluò, also called channel network) is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) belief about a path through which the life-energy known as "qi" flows.[1][2][3][4] A 2001 review found little evidence to support the existence or function of qi or acupuncture meridians.[5] However, more recent studies confirm that the meridians and acupoints have many biophysical properties such as electric, thermal, acoustic, optical, magnetic, isotopic, and myoelectric characteristics, which are different from those of non-acupuncture points.[6] The meridian network is typically divided into 2 categories, the jingmai (經脈) or meridian channels and the luomai (絡脈) or associated vessels (sometimes called "collaterals").

There are about 400 acupuncture points (not counting bilateral points twice) most of which are situated along the major 20 pathways (i.e. 12 primary & 8 extraordinary channels).
