9781583946121: Applied Kinesiology, Revised Edition: A Training Manual and Reference Book of Basic Principles and Practices

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. 
Manual muscle testing is a standard medical diagnostic technique. As in medical muscle testing, AK muscle testing utilizes full-strength contraction of the muscle tested. To perform the AK muscle test, the examiner provides isometric resistance while the patient maximally contracts the chosen muscle. Then the examiner applies a bit more pressure. If the client cannot resist this extra pressure, the muscle "tests weak," indicating a problem or imbalance that needs to be resolved. This type of strong physiological muscle test is especially accurate for the diagnosis of organ disturbances. 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.

About the Author:

ROBERT FROST received degrees in psychology, biology, and physics from the University of California, Santa Cruz. He has studied traditional kinesiology and Neurolinguistic Programming, and is a teacher of the Alexander Technique. Since 1998 he has been active in the international College of Applied Kinesiology in Germany, creating courses combining psychology and Applied Kinesiology. The author lives in Gardnerville, Nevada.

Review:

“Applied Kinesiology is something that can be performed with knowledge, with physiological facts, and with predictable certainty. It should be done, it can be done, and this book offers a means and measure of how it’s done.”
—George J. Goodheart, DC, founder of Applied Kinesiology
 
“This book presents the basic techniques of Applied Kinesiology simply enough for the layperson to understand and clearly enough to be used as a reference for the practitioner. It provides a good bridge for many kinesiologists to learn about classical Applied Kinesiology.”
—Wolfgang Gerz, MD, past president of ICAK-D, International College of Applied Kinesiology, Germany
 
“Applied Kinesiology in the hands of qualified practitioners can be one of the most important noninvasive diagnostic and treatment methods known to alternative medicine. Offering the history and fundamentals of Applied Kinesiology as well as some more advanced techniques, Robert Frost’s valuable book will benefit anyone interested in this modality whether one is new in the field or a seasoned professional. I salute Dr. Frost for a book well written.”
—Michael Lebowitz, DC
