What is ICAK-USA
The International College of Applied Kinesiology® U.S.A (ICAK-USA) was founded in 1976 by a group of doctors who had been teaching others in applied kinesiology. The origin of applied kinesiology is traced to 1964 when George J. Goodheart, Jr., D.C., first observed that postural distortion is usually associated with muscles that test weak. He found that by applying the appropriate therapy, the muscles would test strong and the postural distortion would change. Since its founding, the purpose of the ICAK-USA. has been to promote research and the teaching of applied kinesiology. It is a professional organization dedicated to bringing together doctors and students with common goals and interests.
