Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis. AK, a non-invasive system of evaluating body function that is unique in the healing arts, has become a dynamic movement in health care in its relatively short existence.
The combined terms “applied” and “kinesiology” describe the basis of this system, which is the use of manual muscle testing to evaluate body function through the dynamics of the musculoskeletal system. Treatments may involve specific joint manipulation or mobilization, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, meridian and acupuncture skills, clinical nutrition, dietary management, counseling skills, evaluating environmental irritants and various reflex procedures.

We use the best available in nutrition and whole food supplementation. The goal of all whole food supplementation is to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature. After all, it is in this whole food state that nutrition is typically harnessed and presented to the body.
So how does it all work? These highly complex structures combine a variety of elements, all working together to help trigger the trophic effects that support the body’s desired and sustainable outcome of balance and homeostasis. To account for real-world variability inherent when safeguarding the complexity of ingredients and processes, we apply holistic engineering to how we farm, manufacture and quality-assure our products. This comprehensive approach ensures that our nutritional supplements deliver their complex nutrients as nature intended.
