Fifty-plus years ago, Energy Measuring emerged in the medical and health-care professions, initially as a diagnostic discipline in physical therapy for muscle function.
In 1964, a breakthrough in diagnosis occurred when Detroit chiropractic physician, Dr. George Goodheart, Jr., made an observation so profound that it will forever be a landmark in the history of all health care provided by medical, osteopathic, chiropractic, dental, podiatric, naturopathic, homeopathic, and psychology doctors.

Correlating muscles with acupuncture meridians and energy flows, Dr. Goodheart developed Applied Kinesiology (AK) through his insatiable research, and continuous study of medical, osteopathic and chiropractic journals and books. He also wisely believed that bridges, rather than barriers, would lead to broader understanding.
Psychiatrist John Diamond was attracted by this policy and intrigued by AK, becoming the first qualified medical member of the International College of Applied Kinesiology in the 1970s.
Dr. Diamond learned that a patient thinking an anxious thought “weakened” a previously strong muscle. Working with this, Dr. Diamond reached the core of emotional problems for people far faster than by using orthodox counseling. This changed his entire practice.
Diamond’s first book was Behavioral Kinesiology (in paperback, Your Body Doesn’t Lie), short, simple and profound, followed by his very comprehensive Life Energy, correlating the positive and negative emotions for each acupuncture meridian.
Psychiatrist Harvey Ross was very impressed with a muscle weakening when a person experienced anxiety, or made a statement that was false. He shared this with his good friend psychologist Roger Callahan. Dr. Callahan immediately registered for a 100-hour AK course — the only psychologist in the course! In 1985 he published Five Minute Phobia Cure.
University of California psychologists Peter Lambrou and George Prattare clinical and consulting psychologists on staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, California. Both maintain a private practice and consult with businesses around the country. Lambrou and Pratt have treated over 6,000 patients with a 95-percent success rate. Their 2000 Random House book, Instant Emotional Healing, gives great credit to Goodheart, Diamond, and Callahan as pioneers. Their book provides a superb overview, review, and background of energy and therapies.
As a tool of discovery and experiential learning tool, Energy Measuring is a huge leap — and Heart Forgiveness is a major expansion — they are now jointly applied to relieving the many burdens people carry regarding others, their self, and God.
Experienced re-activation is more than memorizing, emulating, or taking notes — it is experiencing “core health” in our energy, in our heart, in every cell of our body — so our daily living flows effortlessly, without compulsion, from the wellspring of a natural ability to live a full and healthy life.
