Activator methods- Involves the use of the Activator Adjusting Instrument that provides consistent mechanical low-force, high speed input to the body.

Applied Kinesiology (AK)- A form of muscle testing used to diagnose conditions in the body. When properly applied, the outcome of an AK diagnosis will determine the best form of therapy for the patient.

Clinical Kineseology- A touch therapy that links Chinese acupuncture points, energy channels, and energy balance with Western anatomy, physiology and biochemistry. The aim is to achieve balance in the body by releasing energy blocks and reducing toxic load.

Cranial- Finger pressure is applied to specific points of the head, alleviating unwanted symptoms involving the brain, blood vessels, fluid flow, and nervous system function.
