Applied Kinesiology

At the Holistic Health Care Natural Nutrition & Chiropractic Center, Dr. Louis Castaldi and his team provide balanced healthcare to the community of Eastchester, NY. Our goal is to work with you to naturally improve your health and overall quality of life in a supportive and holistic environment. One of the ways to do this is to offer applied Kinesiology.

What is Applied Kinesiology?

Applied Kinesiology is an alternative medical diagnostic that uses manual muscle testing (MMT) to evaluate your health on a structural, chemical, and mental level relying on biofeedback.

It focuses on the viscerosomatic relationship, the correlation between organ dysfunction and a corresponding muscle that displays abnormal function during testing. This helps your chiropractor determine the underlying cause of your illness or symptoms, along with a thorough review of your medical history and other physical assessments.

Applied Kinesiology is a therapeutic tool adapted from traditional Kinesiology in 1964. It focuses on feedback from the body, based on the premise that the body and how it moves cannot hide its dysfunction. There are five areas that an applied kinesiologist focuses on:

  • Nervous system
  • Cerebrospinal system
  • Lymphatic system
  • Vascular system
  • Meridian system

What Happens During an Applied Kinesiology Evaluation?

During your evaluation, the tested muscle will be positioned so that it is contracted, and your chiropractor or healthcare provider will gently apply pressure to gather biofeedback. The testing is non-invasive and should not be painful.

Benefits of Applied Kinesiology

Applied Kinesiology works most effectively as part of a holistic healthcare regime that is focused on preventative healthcare while working towards:

  • Supporting the restoration of nerve function
  • Achieving the expected level of function in the endocrine, immune and digestive systems
  • Intervening in long-term degenerative diseases and conditions to delay the symptoms
  • Restore postural balance and range of motion, including your gait
