Neural kinesiology is an alternative approach to cure is intended to combine elements of other methods result in a consistent and effective therapy. Mixing the basic principles of American kinesiology and neural therapy employed in parts of Europe, neural kinesiology addresses healing in four key areas - psychological, structural, neurological and biochemical. Proponents of the therapy argue that this approach to health and healing is successful because it focuses on the whole person, rather than focusing on one or two areas.
Sometimes referred to as autonomous Response Testing, the development of neural kinesiology is attributed to the work of Louisa Williams and Dietrich Klinghardt. The main focus is to determine the current status of the autonomic nervous system and its role in the current health conditions associated with the patient. If the system appears not to function at normal levels, this approach can help identify causes of disease, making treatment more targeted.
One of the most important tools in neural kinesiology is known as the muscle test. This example of the body tries ailments by touching what is known as an indicator to diagnose muscle. These muscles are in the general area of the inconvenience. While the muscles normally respond to the touch with a certain degree of resistance, the reaction will be slightly weak and the presence of a health problem. The idea is that the disease cuts off the natural flow of energy through the body and the blockages that can be isolated and corrected with elements of the American kinesiology procedures are in conjunction with elements of European neural therapy.
As specific diseases have been identified, it is possible for the physician to begin the treatment. Just about any type of the doctor can make the use of neural kinesiology as part of the diagnosis process. Traditional as well as alternative health practitioners can learn the basics of the therapy and apply it where necessary.
Although many medical professionals around the world use neural kinesiology, there is no consensus on the effectiveness of the approach. Opponents of neural kinesiology indicate that the approach does not always lead to an accurate diagnosis, while proponents point out situations where the therapy was able to health problems that could not be diagnosed to identify with the help of traditional methods.
