Applied Kinesiology

Applied Kinesiology is a non-invasive system that evaluates structural, chemical, and mental aspects of health using muscle testing. Results of the muscle testing are confirmed with palpation, orthopedic examinations, and neurological evaluation. Goals set forth by the International College of Applied Kinesiology, are to provide a non-equipment-intensive assessment of the patient's functional health status.

  • Restore postural balance, correct impaired gait, improve range of motion.
  • Restore normal neuromuscular function.
  • Achieve balance of endocrine, immune, digestive, and other internal functions.
  • Permit early intervention in degenerative diseases.

Although weakness in a specific muscle is said to be a clue to possible problems in its associated organ or gland; practitioners do not claim that the results are diagnostically definitive. They say that improper performance in a manual muscle test may be due to nerve dysfunction, nutritional inadequacy, toxic chemicals, abnormal circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord, tension in the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, poor circulation of blood or lymph fluid, or "meridian system imbalance."

Testimonials

"Before I began seeing Dr. Goltl, my feet were sore all the time. Something as simple as shopping killed my feet. I felt like crying my feet hurt so badly. After receiving treatments from Dr. Goltl, I now feel excellent. I can be on my feet all day, and walk as much as I want. He also fixed a bad back, my colds, my husband's injured back and more. It seems he can help or fix anything. If you are considering seeing Dr. Goltl, Do it! You've only one body, one life... Have fun!"

"I had severe pain in my ribs after lung surgery. I wasn't able to sleep on my left side and had limited ability to bend and move. My daughter just had surgery on her neck to remove a cyst. My son had bumps on his arms and legs. After treatment with Dr. Goltl I can breath deeply and am able to work out at the gym. My sons bumps are nearly gone and my daughter doesn't cry as much and sleeps better. Dr. Goltl is knowledgeable, explains what he is doing, kind, and truly cares about our well being."

"My concerns when I began treatment with Dr. Goltl were complications with Crohn's Disease and severe lower right abdominal pain.  I had feelings of lethargy and depression.  Now my Crohn’s Disease is in complete remission.  I feel peaceful, energetic, and focused.  I have referred many friends, family members, and co-workers.  I appreciate the fact that Dr. Goltl is willing to work with western medicine to achieve the most benefits for my health."
