Applied kinesiology uses diagnostic muscle tests in conjunction with standard examination procedures to determine the causes of health problems.

Halftone illustrations, case histories, and 33 muscle tests are included.


Reader Comment
Great introduction to Applied Kinesiology, April 12, 2003
Reviewer: rgretencord from Chicago, IL United States
Robert Frost's AK manual is lean and to the point. It gives the history of AK, how AK is used in Europe and the USA, theory into the mechanisms of the reflexes used in AK, basic therapeutic procedures with explainations, and clear diagrams of the basic muscle tests and the appropriate reflexes. A perfect complement to the 100 hour course. I recommend this book to any student or practioner in health care who is looking to expand their skill set.

Book Description
A practical and reliable diagnostic tool that has emerged over the past twenty-five years, kinesiology is the study of the mechanics of bodily motion, especially muscle movements and their relationship to our body systems. Viewing the body as a balanced triad of structure, chemistry, and mentality, applied kinesiology gauges muscle response to pinpoint underlying physical problems. Within 30 minutes, a competent kinesiologist can evaluate bodily functions and provide a readout on the workings of the glands, organs, lymphatic system, circulatory and nervous systems, circulation, and muscle-bone structure.
Applied Kinesiology demonstrates how this technique can be of practical use for everyone.


Reader Review
Diagnosis of the human body., May 22, 2000
Reviewer: amanda boss (see more about me at Amazon.com) from sydney,australia
I found yhis book very informative, it gives interesting accounts on every part of the body by recognising responses in the muscles. It gives plain explanations and easy guidedlines to follow, this would assist a student to be able to recognise step by step and help them to recieve messages about healthy or unhealthy parts of the body.' It would also help them to form an opinion as how to help the patient and follow thru with medication in erbel therepies and also make the patient aware of the bodies functions. This book has been thouroughly written with thought, and easy to read and understand without getting very technical.

Reader Review
Overall good book., January 27, 2000
Reviewer: Jason Ard (see more about me at Amazon.com) from Narnia
This is a very well written and explained book. It is worth buying. It is well documented, scientific and no theological junk of the author is thrown in like so many other dissapointing books. However, it does take an investment in time and can be difficult for those who are not advanced readers. If you are just starting, start with "Your Body Doesn't Lie". Another great book, not so in depth and smaller but easier to read.

Reader Review
Touch for Health uncovers the healing magic of human touch!, October 1, 1998
Reviewer: Jim Lambert (jim@entrance.to) from West Virginia, USA
I have been using Touch for Health as a part of my life for almost 20 years. I can't imagine life without it. After learning a few basic premises & techniques (more readily learned with experienced assistance) it allows a lay person to utilize acupressure effectively! If that isn't enough to amaze you, the applied kinesiology allows an individual to ask the brain direct questions and to receive direct, correct, answers about the body's condition. Kinesiology can be used to determine if the body needs a substance (vitamins, minerals), and if so how much. It also can be used to determine what food items cause negative reactions. Regular practical use of Touch for Health will teach the user to better understand the interrelation between the body's different components, thereby making many health mysteries understandable. Most amazing is that nothing in this review is hyperbole, but rather, understatement!

Using Touch for Health helps an individual discover one of the most important secrets of life: that human touch is so much more than just sex or punishment. YOU can learn the magic of 'the laying on of hands'.

Reader Review
Is the testing system credible?, March 22, 2002
Reviewer: len_f (see more about me at Amazon.com) from Fanwood, NJ United States
There is a wealth of information here about herbs, minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and many other topics of interest to alternative health readers. The point we keep returning to is that our medical problems are caused by allergies, and that allergies can be cured by taking antidotes.

Muscle Response Testing (MRT) is used to determine what we are allergic to and exactly how to cure the allergy. But the MRT system is so hard to believe. It is like tapping into a realm of magic. And yet everything in this book takes you back to this unusual method of testing.

Do you need Vitamin C? Place a Vitamin C pill in your right hand, press it to your solar plexus. Extend your left arm. Your doctor then presses down on your extended left arm. Is your resistance strong? Is your arm rigid? Try it again, holding two vitamin pills this time. Is your extended arm stronger this way?

Being open minded, I gave it a try even though it seems unscientific. Holding different amounts of pills did have varying effects on my thoughts. Does this test rely on the fact that the person being tested knows what he is holding and this affects how strong his resistance will be? Will he then subconsciously try to satisfy the tester by giving an appropriate amount of resistance? Do the results really tell what your body needs, or do they tell what you think you need?

One of the most valuable bits of advice in this book is that your state of mind deeply affects your health, and that worrying and being afraid will not do you any good. When you feel this way you are advised to say a prayer. This will re-focus you and turn your negativity around.

The author is obviously very knowledgeable, and I believe him when he says he has helped many patients.
