For more than 15 years, Dr. Rehl has studied Applied Kinesiology (AK), a dynamic movement in the healing arts. AK is a noninvasive system that evaluates the “triad of health,” a term used to describe the body’s structural, chemical, and mental aspects. AK combines the most effective health care disciplines in order to evaluate, diagnose, and treat most health care problems.
The combined terms “applied” and “kinesiology” describe the basis of this system, which is the use of manual muscle testing to evaluate body function through the dynamics of the musculoskeletal system. Muscle testing involves having the patient try to match the pressure of Dr. Rehl as he gently presses against a part of the body, thereby activating a particular muscle group.
