“This is Amazing!!”
“I knew my body could heal itself, but I didn’t know how to go about it!”
These are just a few of the comments we hear when a patient first experiences Applied Kinesiology (kin-ees-see-awl-oh-gee).
The term Kinesiology, which means the study of movement, was brought to the public’s attention in the 1960s by Dr. George Goodheart, a chiropractor from Detroit, Michigan. He was quite aware of the many natural healing disciplines and alternative health practices; not just in our country, but throughout the world. He valued natural remedies greatly; because of this he had a vision to combine these natural traditions from around the world together into one entity with the goal of creating a universal natural health system. The only problem was, every natural healing culture had its own system of diagnosis and correction. He understood that to be accepted by the general public, there had to be a universal standardized system. This prompted him to develop a testing system that could be universally used to evaluate and correct weaknesses and abnormalities. This system is called Muscle Testing.
Muscle testing is an alternative medicinal practice that allows practitioners to evaluate weakness, abnormalities and variations within the norms through the testing of muscle strength and weakness. With this testing method, Dr. Goodheart and any other Applied Kinesiology practitioners had a standardized testing method, and could incorporate other allied healing arts with a higher degree of confidence and success!
It was with this testing procedure that Dr. Goodheart, et al. broadened their understanding that the body needed to be treated as a whole, instead of targeting only the specific parts that seemed to be affected by undesirable symptoms. Under this umbrella of Applied Kinesiology, they incorporated:
Acupressure, the ancient art of Acupuncture and meridians
Chiropractic: the art of relieving nerve pressure
Homeopathy: the art of using natural substances that occur in nature, and
Vitamins: natural food and animal sources that feed and heal the body.
As we as a society have learned more about how to optimize health and body functions, we continue to add to and refine this expanding entity of knowledge. At the Winner Wellness Center, we incorporate natural treatments such as Physical Therapy, Vascular and Lymphatic Systems Detox and Clearing, Emotional Mindset Release, Scar Therapy, and Parasite and Allergy Release, to name a few.
The general public has lost its enthusiasm for drugs and unnecessary surgeries, which instead of solving the problem often endeavor fruitlessly to cover the issue up. Applied Kinesiology remains an open door for those who want more out of their health care system than this, and who still believe the saying: ‘ Your body can heal itself ‘.
