Accomplished in research as well as practice, Dr. Timothy D. Francis has been widely published and has treated a myriad of individuals including professional athletes and celebrities. As a fellow with the American Association of Integrative Medicine, Dr. Francis has a strong commitment to the advancement of integrative treatments.
Integrative medicine seeks to treat the entire patient in mind, body, and spirit. In order to accomplish this aim, those who practice integrative medicine often employ a combination of conventional Western and alternative treatments. These treatments may include acupuncture, biofeedback, chiropractic, massage, homeopathy, naturopathy, and herbal therapy.
Public awareness around integrative medicine increased dramatically after a 1993 study showed that one in three all Americans had utilized some sort of alternative therapies. By 2002, that number had doubled. In response to the public’s desire for an integrated approach, more and more hospitals are adding integrative medical centers to their campuses, and medical schools have also added courses that teach non-traditional therapies.
Applied Kinesiology is the true original holistic approach that utilizes manual muscle testing to determine exactly the cause of the patient’s symptoms. This approach is the most advanced in health care and continues to lead the way in both clinical results and research. Many of the current teachers in Applied Kinesiology in the United States originally learned from Dr. Timothy Francis.
