Medical kinesiology balances at the intersection of traditional medicine, osteopathy, homeopathy, manual therapy, neurology, acupuncture and is based on the understanding that the health of any organ can be seen by the state of the muscles associated with it. Kinesiology is based on three complementary areas: applied, motor-oriented and psychotherapeutic. The first two are based on manual muscle testing, which helps to identify areas of the body that require physical correction. The latter is aimed at relieving psychological stress and is based on the fact that muscle tension is an indicator of mental state.

The essence of the kinesiology techniques is in the general impact on the physical body, spirit and mind. So, based on the results of the muscle test and communication with the patient, the specialist finds the psycho-muscular levers and switches them, activating the blocked areas of consciousness. Such treatment, based on the principles of kinesiology, is effective for a variety of mental and physical disorders of the body.
