What is AK?

Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis.  Neurologic muscule testing is performed as a means of identifying imbalances in the body’s nerve/energy system, and as a means of determining the optimum correction method to restore health and balance. Applied Kinesiology helps fine-tune the body and gives us a way to optimize the body’s self-healing, self-regulating, and performance ability.  AK is a non-invasive system of evaluating body function is unique in the healing arts, and has become a dynamic movement in health care for over 49 years!

The Triad Of Health is the foundation of Applied Kinesiology clinical decision making

Dr. Kohler considers the interrelationships between the structural, chemical, and mental/emotional aspects of his patients and considers the role of each when designing your care plan.  After a detailed examination utilizing Applied Kinesiology manual muscle testing, Dr. Kohler works to reduce spinal subluxations, improve neuromotor function, resolve abnormal injury/trauma patterns, and improve overall body function.  Techniques used, but not limited to: specific chiropractic adjustments, upper cervical atlas corrections, cranial and extremity adjustments, manual therapy, injury recall technique, whole food supplementation and diet recommendations, breathing and visualization exercises,  relaxation postures, strength and stabilization exercises, posture education, and mindfulness.   By assessing neuro-feedback from the manual muscle test, Dr. Kohler is able to determine if the corrections effectively improved the structural, chemical, and emotional well-being of the individual.   For over 15 years, Dr. Kohler has worked diligently to improve his skill as a manual muscle tester and Applied Kinesiologist and he attends numerous workshops and conferences throughout the year.
