Special AK 100 Hour Course

Introducing the precursor to Quintessential Applications, Dr. Wally Schmitt's Special Applied Kinesiology 100 Hour Course.

What is "Special" about Dr. Schmitt's AK 100 Hour Course?

In the 1970s, Dr. David Walther laid a firm foundation for Applied Kinesiology education capturing the essence of AK principles taught by Dr. George Goodheart, and that Course was the standard for years to come.

Fast forward to the late 1990s, when Dr. Schmitt took the reins, reimagining the AK 100 hour curriculum to propel it into the 21st Century as a tool for functional neurological assessment. 

Though this course has its roots in chiropractic, it's not just for chiropractors – it's for any healthcare practitioner passionate about unlocking the body's potential for optimal health.

The course consists of eight 12 ½ hour sessions, each filmed live at the National University of Health Sciences.

“This course is a refreshing look at just how integrated the human body is. It provides valuable tools for proper clinical assessment of patients who have been ‘everywhere else’ with no results. This course is informative and I think a ‘must’ to be a great doctor/clinician, and also a ‘must’ to provide patients with the best quality of life possible.”

What Makes This Course Special?

Innovative Concepts: Dr. Schmitt introduces cutting-edge concepts like Injury Recall & Set Point techniques, Nociceptor Stimulation Blocking & Location Quality & Memory techniques that set this course apart.
Unique Challenges: Learn about intriguing clinical assessment tools and challenges like the Aspirin Mix & Antihistamine Mix challenges and the Aldehyde, Bleach & Ammonia Sniff Tests, offering a hands-on, practical approach to addressing and assessing systemic nutritional needs.
Expert Guidance: Dr. Schmitt's specialized expertise shines through as he expands our understanding of systemic influences on health and combines it with fascinating practical demonstrations, so that students receive unparalleled insights into the intricate world of Applied Kinesiology.

“To me this course brings chiropractic to a new level and is very mentally stimulating. It also seems to bring chiropractic and acupuncture together as a complete new science.”
