Applied Kinesiology Q&A

What is applied kinesiology?

Kinesiology is the study of how the body moves and functions. The professionals at Nutura Clinic are experts in applied kinesiology (AK), which uses muscle testing as a “window” into your body. AK functions on the understanding that muscular changes can affect associated acupuncture circuits, which can affect your organs, causing adverse health conditions as a result.

AK is advantageous for quickly monitoring treatment protocols and patient responses, but it shouldn’t be relied upon as a standalone diagnostic tool. Rather, it should complement other standard diagnostic tools, such as patient history, physical exams, blood and urine testing, stool analysis, and more.


What types of patients can applied kinesiology help?

AK can help diagnose and treat a variety of injuries and bodily dysfunctions. It offers feedback regarding how your body is functioning, in addition to what needs to be done to help improve it. Patients who typically visit Nutura Clinic for AK treatments have conditions such as:

  • Digestive issues: like food allergies, candida, 
  •  or inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Chronic conditions: diabetes, fatigue, osteoporosis, and vertigo
  • Pain: back pain, headaches, or bodily pain after an injury or accident

Patients typically have more than one symptom, and AK can help patients living with several health problems at once.


How do applied kinesiology treatments work?

Applied kinesiology treatments vary from one individual to the next, but Nutura Clinic uses some standard methods to evaluate your body and help restore your health. This may include manual muscle testing, acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, clinical nutrition, detoxification protocols, and more.

Using a multifaceted approach that takes your unique needs into account, your Nutura Clinic provider customizes your treatment to your needs for the best possible results.


What are the benefits of applied kinesiology treatments?

As a healing system that accounts for your total body well-being, applied kinesiology approaches your health and wellness comprehensively.

Nutura Clinic’s approach focuses on identifying and treating the causes of disease and/or pain, not just your symptoms. And if a complete resolution of your condition isn’t possible, Nutura Clinic providers use natural alternatives to medical treatments and medications to help relieve your symptoms.

Applied kinesiology treatments remove obstacles to healing and unlock your body’s innate ability to heal and repair itself. You also receive tools, home treatments, and lifestyle advice that can help you lead a healthy, energetic, and productive life.
