Praise for Journey to Healing
"This is an interesting and engaging book for readers who are on the lookout for alternative ways to heal themselves." Readers Favorite(R)
"Applied Kinesiology helped get rid of my crippling leg pain. Much like a musical composition I work on, I can hear and feel what needs addressing in specific octaves; in the hands of a skilled chiropractor using Applied Kinesiology, the doctor can see and feel what needs to be addressed to restore a patient to feeling strong again. And it's better for your soul, body, spirit and mind than drugs! Journey To Healing puts this empowering information at your fingertips." Herb Powers, Jr. Grammy Award winning engineer, Powers Mastering, Inc
"This is an eye-opening look into the world of Applied Kinesiology(AK). Understanding and correcting muscle functionality as 'a proactive approach to health rather than a reactive response to disease' is key in this practice. AK is a holistic approach to improving health, decreasing stress, and relieving pain. The stories of real people are a testimony to the life-changing techniques of AK." Manhattan Book Review
"Dr. Eugene Charles has been teaching Applied Kinesiology for over 30 years, and is the perfect expert to explore Applied Kinesiology's vast potential as a growing member of the integrative medicine pantheon in Journey to Healing: The Art and Science of Applied Kinesiology.
The result is a thorough survey of the promises of Applied Kinesiology that is an integral, successful exploration highly recommended for physicians and patients alike. Its detail and accessibility makes it a top recommendation for any consumer health library." D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

1star because zero is not an option
However, I'm not really sure who this book if aimed at. While it is technically well written (clearly the author is both highly intelligent and very knowledgeable about AK), the style of the book starts out almost textbookish, with lots of detail about the evolution of AK as a practice (including who talked to whom about it and when, etc.), and then the bulk of the remainder of the book is case studies. These thoroughly (and I would say exhaustively, but that would be hyperbole) demonstrate AK's usefulness for everything from hyperthyroidism to knee pain to ADHD. It's all very impressive, but it also doesn't teach any of the techniques that are referenced.
The textbooky elements along with the lack of actionable information makes me think it's not really for a layperson--those of us looking for our next "alternative" self-healing modality--despite a cover that looks sort of "new agey." And that's fine! Since AK is a bonafide medical specialty, I accept that its techniques shouldn't just be taught in a book, but instead, with oversight and rigor. But JTH also doesn't seem to move medical practitioners closer to being able to use AK either, which means I'm just not sure where it fits into the scheme of things.
This book is not only a great lesson in AK for those who are intrigued and want to know more, but it is also educational and supportive for those folks who have hit a wall with their own respective treatments. Charles by no means tried to sell us on his own brand of ‘woo’, but lays out very scholarly and logically exactly what AK is, where it came from, how it can help everyone, and why it works.
Not only is the practice well-explained, the book includes three appendixes: one concerns eliminating allergies, the second offers information on finding a practitioner, and the third is a Sample Patient Questionnaire. Following the appendices is a list of recommended reading for further study. It is an interesting book which holds invaluable information for anyone wishing to achieve health and well-being in an unconventional way.
I have had this book in my waiting room for several months and recently a teenage girl took it home. She was hoping to understand how we were able to help balance her hormones based on the information gained through Applied Kinesiology testing. She made a presentation to her class about AK and how it helped her. She had always wanted to be an MD. She still does but now she wants to be an MD who uses AK!
Thanks for helping my patients understand the process Dr. Charles!
