AK uses functional muscle testing

Dr Cohen is a Board Certified AK practitioner through the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK).

Applied Kinesiology is a diagnostic system using muscle response testing to determine the structural, chemical and energetic areas of imbalance in the body. Dr Cohen utilizes the technique to aid in his diagnosis process, to best determine where to treat and which technique to utilize for optimal results.

Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a holistic approach to health assessment and treatment that integrates principles from chiropractic, osteopathy, and traditional Chinese medicine. It was created by Dr George goodheart in the 1970's. Dr Goodheart was the first chiropractor to work on a US olympic team.

Practitioners use muscle testing to evaluate imbalances in the body's structural, chemical, and emotional systems. Based on these assessments, specific techniques such as joint manipulation, nutritional supplementation, and acupuncture meridian therapy may be employed to restore balance and promote optimal health. AK aims to address the root causes of health issues by considering the interconnectedness of the body's various systems.

Interestingly, the basis of AK is what more recently has been incorporated into the underlying essence of PDTR!
