Dr Craig has helped me get through traumatic brain injury’s  from being rear ended in three car accidents while I was sitting still at red lights! These concussions changed my life.

Check out my video on his website which shows how confused and battered I was when I first came into his office after the car accident on December 24,  2010, yes....Christmas Eve!

On top of these concussions, 50 years of cutting opponents down to size as a highly decorated, world renowned martial artist, my arms, legs, hands and feet (my weapons) have needed a lot of Dr. Craig’s skillful attention

You may be wondering what applied kinesiology is all about, applied kinesiology or AK is the study of body movement and how it relates to injury and illness. AK is used as a form of diagnosis and treatment utilizing muscle testing as a feedback mechanism to determine how a patient’s body is functioning. When certain muscles show signs of weakness it can cause problems such as nerve impingement, reduced blood supply, chemical imbalances and these muscle weaknesses are often caused by organ or gland problems relating to the acupuncture circuits or meridians. By correcting these muscle weaknesses, it helps alleviate pain and helps heal the problem and the underlying causes associated with that muscle weakness allowing the body to use its best resources to heal from within.
