A longtime innovator in the applied kinesiology (AK) discipline, Dr. Timothy Francis leads the Las Vegas practice Chiropractic Kinesiology and has instructed a number of orthopedic surgeons in his field. Dr. Timothy Francis employs a rigorous screening protocol in identifying the various dysfunctions within the body and determining exactly which approach will be most efficacious in enabling a return to balanced homeostasis.
The therapy localization (TL) is a diagnostic procedure that provides a reliable rapid screen that enables diagnosing the patient and determining what types of supplements will work best. Potential pathways that offer therapeutic benefit include homeopathic medicine, naturopathic herbs, allopathic medicine, and nutritional supplements such as vitamins, minerals, and glandulars. This broad TL screening related to specific organs, muscles, and reflexes may also indicate that no supplement is needed at present.
The advantage of this approach is in providing an optimal level of specification for the patient and avoiding the tendency to use the same techniques and therapies for every physical condition. Applied kinesiology offers a uniquely complementary approach to holistic health and is often in tandem with traditional Western medicine treatments.
