  1. AK History
  2. Triad of Health: Structural-Chemical-Psychological
  3. Five Factors of the Inter Vertebral Foramen (IVF): 1) Nerve Root (N) , 2) Lymph Reflex (NL), 3) Vascular Reflex-arteries and veins (NV), 4) Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF), 5) Acupuncture Meridian Circuit (AMC).

  7. Postural analysis: How to read the body.
  8. Modular Distortion Patterns known as ROLL-PITCH-YAW (#1 & #2), and additional pattern called TILT. This system is both diagnostic and corrective. 99% of your patients have one or more of these patterns.  Most notable is  head forward which is PITCH.
