About the Author
Praise For Applied Kinesiology, Revised Edition: A Training Manual and Reference Book of Basic Principles and Practices…
“Applied Kinesiology is something that can be performed with knowledge, with physiological facts, and with predictable certainty. It should be done, it can be done, and this book offers a means and measure of how it’s done.”
—George J. Goodheart, DC, founder of Applied Kinesiology
“This book presents the basic techniques of Applied Kinesiology simply enough for the layperson to understand and clearly enough to be used as a reference for the practitioner. It provides a good bridge for many kinesiologists to learn about classical Applied Kinesiology.”
—Wolfgang Gerz, MD, past president of ICAK-D, International College of Applied Kinesiology, Germany
“Applied Kinesiology in the hands of qualified practitioners can be one of the most important noninvasive diagnostic and treatment methods known to alternative medicine. Offering the history and fundamentals of Applied Kinesiology as well as some more advanced techniques, Robert Frost’s valuable book will benefit anyone interested in this modality whether one is new in the field or a seasoned professional. I salute Dr. Frost for a book well written.”
—Michael Lebowitz, DC
