Applied Kinesiology Research Published In The Past Year

 Two New Applied Kinesiology Textbooks (2nd Editions In Color!)

1)    Applied Kinesiology Essentials: The Missing Link in Healthcare significantly updates the scientific rationales and evidence-base for AK demonstrating -- in light of evidence based medicine -- the importance of the manual muscle test in physical, emotional, and nutritional diagnosis.  

2)   Applied Kinesiology: Clinical Techniques for Lower Body Dysfunctions presents a comprehensive “one-stop” textbook on the AK approach to lower body pain and dysfunction. This text provides a detailed, illustrated, and evidence-based discussion of the relationship between muscle weakness and lower body pain and dysfunction. It describes the normal anatomy and physiology as well as the most common disorders of the lower body. We believe it will be the most extensive work ever published on the manipulative approach to foot and ankle and peripheral nerve entrapment syndromes of the lower body.

Both of these books are available at
