Our Muscles Know What Our Brain Tries To Hide

Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a unique system of health assessment and treatment that utilizes manual muscle testing along with other standard methods of diagnosis to evaluate structural, chemical and mental aspects of health.



Muscles throughout the body are intimately related to body systems, organs and nutrition via their connections through the nervous system and acupuncture meridians.

Doctors trained in AK are able to assess the relative strength of these muscles in order to determine imbalances and dysfunction in deeper lying areas. Once an unbalanced muscle is found the doctor then begins to determine why that muscle is not functioning properly.

Through this modality we are able to identify imbalances that might not have come forth in a verbal patient intake.  This helps us get to the root of a patients challenges more quickly

A treatment plan to correct the underlying imbalance may include specific joint and myofascial manipulation, osteopathic techniques, acupuncture or acupressure, clinical nutrition, dietary management, neuro-emotional therapy, homeopathy, and assessment of food and environmental sensitivities.

Naturopathic and Osteopathic visits are covered under most extended health care plans in Ontario.
