Applied Kinesiology, also known as muscle strength testing, is based on the idea that all parts of the body interact and affect each other. Using manual muscle testing techniques, the kinesiologist can diagnose and in turn, help treat problems in the body. AK uses energy path-ways in the body much like acupressure. The function (or dysfunction) of a particular muscle can tell a kinesiologist about the health of an organ system or gland and can signal internal problems that can be healed. Although the first documentation of muscle testing dates back to two doctors at Harvard Medical School in 1916, Applied Kinesiology was founded by George Goodheart in the 1960’s.  

This course is approved for 50 CEU’s through the NJ Board of Chiropractic Examiners. Other healthcare professionals are welcome to attend but continuing education credits will not be awarded. Upon successful completion of this course, students may receive 50 credits through the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK), part of the requirements for International Board of Applied Kinesiology Diplomate credentialling.

Students taking “AK in a Nutshell” will also qualify for a free Nutrition and free Ethics class through The Institute for Continuing Education. Registration for those two classes will need to be done by phone rather than online. Chiropractors: This will give you more than the credits you need for relicensure as well the two required courses. Classes are held from 8:30am-1:30pm on Thursdays so that chiropractors can take this course on days off or can still see patients in the afternoon.

INTRODUCTORY TUITION: $995 – includes free Ethics and Nutrition classes

Major credit cards accepted. Installment payment plan available (must call to register).

Upon completion of this class, the participant should be able to:

•  Understand the general history of Applied Kinesiology
Understand the concepts of Applied Kinesiology and their applicability to the chiropractor
•  Understand the benefit and use of manual muscle testing
•  Perform basic manual muscle testing
• Identify uses for AK for common health conditions and body mechanisms
• Understand and practice basic AK for many parts of the human body
•  Determine whether to continue further study in Applied Kinesiology


Dr. Paul Sprieser, DC, DIBAK, has been a practicing chiropractor since 1969. In 1983, he became a Diplomate of the International College of Applied Kinesiology and since then, has been teaching healthcare and dental professionals (as well as veterinarians) about Applied Kinesiology and other topics. For years, he often co-lectured with the founder of Applied Kinesiology, the late George Goodheart. Dr. Sprieser has been involved in clinical research in the areas of AK, learning disabilities, TMJ dysfunction and general health problems for over 30 years. He has published 76 papers and is awaiting publication of a book for the general public on Applied Kinesiology.
