Applied Kinesiology (AK) is usually listed among divination methods. But human bodies are very effective divination tools, and this technique allows us to access deep wisdom that the mind cannot attain.
Sometimes simply called Kinesiology, this is a system of testing muscle strength to determine what the body needs.
Using Applied Kinesiology
How does it work?
You can test different muscles, but commonly the shoulder is used, especially for beginners.
Holding one arm straight out to the side from your shoulder, it sort of locks in place. Having someone standing in front (or behind) your arm -- not your body -- they test by saying "yes," and then pushing lightly down on your wrist with two fingers. The arm will remain strong and in position.
(If it does not, it indicates that clearing or recalibration are needed. Then try again.)
Then the person tests by saying "no," and again pressing down on your wrist. The arm will fall away from the pressure.
(If not, ditto.)
Now you can use this to test for different foods, or answer questions as you would with other divination tools.
There is a little more to the technique, and also ways that you can test yourself on your fingers, but we won't go into that here.
How Applied Kinesiology Works
The muscles remain strong in the presence of a "yes" answer, and collapse without strength in the presence of a "no" answer.
The same is true in the presence of something healthful and something not good for the body.
You can use this to as a divination tool to test for yes-or-no answers, just as you would use a pendulum.
There are three major advantages of using muscle testing over other divination methods...

George J. Goodheart, a chiropractor, invented Applied Kinesiology and published Muscles: Testing and Function in 1964.
Since then, it has been adapted and used by medical doctors, alternative healers, dentists, nutritionists, spiritual teachers, and many more. By 2003, it was the 10th most common chiropractic technique used in the USA, according to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
If you are interested in kinesiology, I really recommend reading Power vs. Force: The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, by Dr. David Hawkins. This is, in my opinion, the definitive work on the subject, especially as it applies to spiritual matters.
