Kinesiology Q & A

What is kinesiology?

Kinesiology is the study of how the body moves and functions. Dr. Rubenstein is an expert in applied kinesiology (AK), which uses muscle testing as a “window” into your body. AK functions on the understanding that muscular changes can impact associated acupuncture circuits, which can affect particular organs and cause specific health conditions.

AK is an amazing tool for quickly monitoring treatment protocols and a patient’s responses, but it’s not a standalone diagnostic tool. It complements standard diagnostic tools, such as patient history, physical exam, blood and urine testing, stool analysis and more.

What types of patients can kinesiology help?

AK helps diagnose and treat various injuries and bodily dysfunctions. It provides feedback on how your body is functioning, as well as what needs to be done to help it function better. Typically, patients who come to Dr. Rubenstein for AK treatments have conditions such as:

  • Digestive problems: like candida, food allergies, or inflammatory bowel syndrome
  • Chronic conditions: diabetes, osteoporosis, fatigue, and vertigo
  • Pain: headaches, back pain, or body aches after an injury or accident


Many patients have more than one symptom, and kinesiology can address patients suffering with several problems at once.

How does kinesiology treatment work?

Applied kinesiology treatment varies from one individual to the next, but Dr. Rubenstein uses some standard methods to evaluate your body and help you regain your health. This may include manual muscle testing, chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture meridian therapy, clinical nutrition, detoxification protocols, and more.

Using a multifaceted approach that takes into account your unique needs, Dr. Rubenstein customizes your treatment for the best results.

What are the benefits of kinesiology treatment?

As a system of healing that accounts for your total body well-being, kinesiology approaches health and wellness comprehensively.

Dr. Rubenstein’s approach focuses on identifying and treating the cause of disease or pain, not just managing your symptoms. And if a complete resolution of your condition isn’t possible, he uses natural alternatives to medical treatments and medications to relieve your symptoms.

Kinesiology treatments remove obstructions to healing and unlock your body's innate ability to heal and repair itself. You also receive tools, home treatments, and lifestyle changes that will help you lead a healthy, energetic, and productive life.
