Applied Kinesiology: Muscle Response in Diagnosis, Therapy and Preventive Medicine
Applied Kinesiology
Muscle Response in Diagnosis, Therapy and Preventive Medicine
Paperback      ISBN: 0892813288
A practical and reliable diagnostic tool that has emerged over the past twenty-five years, kinesiology is the study of the mechanics of bodily motion, especially muscle movements and their relationship to our body systems. Viewing the body as a balanced triad of structure, chemistry, and mentality, applied kinesiology gauges muscle response to pinpoint underlying physical problems. Within 30 minutes, a competent kinesiologist can evaluate bodily functions and provide a readout on the workings of the glands, organs, lymphatic system, circulatory and nervous systems, circulation, and muscle-bone structure. Applied Kinesiology demonstrates how this technique can be of practical use for everyone.Â
