Dr George Goodheart

Kinesiology was originally developed by Dr George Goodheart DC., a second generation chiropractor, in the early 1960's. He discovered the relationship between Chinese meridians (used by practitioners of Chinese medicine including acupuncturists) and muscle groups, organs, and glands in the body. By testing the resistance of a muscle when a small amount of pressure is applied to it, weaknesses and imbalances in its corresponding meridian could be distinguished. The technique was developed into the system of Kinesiology known as Applied Kinesiology that was used mostly by medical related practitioners such as dentists and chiropractors.

 

Backs are possibly my favorite subject.  I suffered horrendously with back pain through my late teens and twenties thanks to a rollerblading accident I had, age 17, in which I damaged my coccyx.  The bouts of physical pain I experienced were exhausting.  My moods would sink to an all all-time low, I was always tired, taking time off work etc. The term that would get bandied around was ‘glassy back’.  At first, I used to rest and take painkillers as instructed, then one day I decided to ask my father for help.  Backs are his favorite subject too.  In the 1970's, he trained at Walton Hospital and specialised in Neuro Medicine and Neuro Surgery nursing and, worked in spinal injuries and disease clinics. In the 1980s, he discovered Kinesiology, Cransiosacral Therpay and Ishta Spinal Touch.  He never looked back.
