Kinesiology is the study of the mechanics of bodily motion, especially muscle movements and their relationship to our body systems. This diagnostic method measures muscle response to specific stimulation in order to pinpoint the underlying causes of health problems. Applied Kinesiology demonstrates how this technique can be of practical use for everyone.

The revised edition of the best-selling book on Applied Kinesiology, Applied Kinesiology, Revised Edition introduces a diagnostic method that uses manual muscle testing to assess the body's "Triad of Health"--structure, chemistry, and psyche. To perform a muscle test, the practitioner applies light pressure that the client then resists. If the client cannot resist the pressure, the muscle "tests weak," indicating a structural problem or imbalance that needs to be resolved. Further applications include working with a muscle that tests strong "in the clear" as a diagnostic tool to determine the effect of stimuli including touch, nutrients, medicines, allergens, emotions, poor posture, and stressful memories. Opening with a detailed description of the history and applications of Applied Kinesiology, the book covers the theory, procedure, and intepretation of the muscle test including diagnosis and correction techniques for areas of weakness. Thirty-three muscle tests for different areas of the body are accompanied by instructive photographs with superimposed anatomical drawings that demonstrate the method and various treatment points. A useful appendix includes a glossary of anatomical terms and special vocabulary; a step-by-step plan for conducting a session; and a list of contacts and sources for Applied Kinesiology materials. Offering a new preface and additional techniques in the areas of manual medicine, orthomolecular medicine, and psychology, this revised edition shares the author's discoveries as well as anecdotal observations to stimulate further research.

An introductory textbook complete with professional photos and graphic diagrams, this manual explains basic and advanced techniques of applied kinesiology. Frost has developed a comprehensive guide, mapping out the basic principles and applications whereby the muscles of the body act as indicators of deeper stresses and discomforts that often have their root in muscle weakness. Therapeutic solutions range from muscle strengthening to reflex point massage to manipulation of the neuromuscular spindle cells.

Applied Kinesiology is the science of healing the total person and supporting his or her true health through the study of movement and integral muscle function.Very few doctors and even fewer patients are aware of this amazingly effective approach to helping people with a wide variety of health conditions.I have included case histories of patients' experiences with AK. Many of these people had nearly given up hope to ever live normal lives again until treatments with AK restored their true health and put them back on their personal journey to healing. I hope their stories will inspire you about the power of AK to help you to reach your full health potential and set you on your own life-long journey to healing.
