    Kinesiology

    I know roughly what it is...

    The scientific study of man's movement and the movements of implements or equipment that he might use in exercise, sport or other forms of physical activity.

    The study of muscles and the movement of the human body. In holistic medicine, it is the balance of movement and the interaction of a person's energy systems. Applied Kinesiology is the name given by its inventor, Dr. George Goodheart, to the system of applying muscle testing diagnostically and therapeutically to different aspects of health care.

    The study of muscles and muscular movement. It forms the basic science for physical and occupational therapies.

    the branch of physiology that studies the mechanics and anatomy in relation to human movement
