Applied Kinesiology (AK) was developed in 1964 by Dr. George Goodhart. AK utilizes Muscle Testing - also called Muscle Response Testing (MRT) or Autonomic Response Testing (ART) - to evaluate the three functional aspects of well-being.
Applied Kinesiology allows the skilled health practitioner to evaluate functional illness, which typically precedes disease. This highly individualized, in-depth system of analysis, allows Dr. Martenson to assess various aspects of a patient's state of health by evaluating and treating postural and muscular imbalances, neurovascular and neuro-lymphatic points, subluxation, cranial-sacral movement, acupuncture meridians and nutritional status. This is a highly effective treatment system which focuses on whole body care. AK enables health investigation without intrusion. AK gives insight into the underlying causes and solutions to many functional health problems.
