"Motion" and "study of" are the ingredients of kinesiology. By testing muscles it is possible to assess organ function because they are interrelated. There will be a muscle weakness when there is organ dysfunction. Applied kinesiology is applying what you know about movement to organ function. You can make a diagnosis based on muscle weakness, and it is possible to talk to the body to alter strength and function. There is a lot of scientific evidence backing this discipline but mainstream medicine does not read it! Much of the basis of applied kinesiology stems from working with the quantum field around us.
