The term comes from the Greek words "kinesis" which means movement and "logos", meaning science or teaching. Kinesiology is therefore the teaching of movement. Its' founder is the American Chiropractor Dr. George Goodheart who in 1964 published a research paper entitled "Applied Kinesiology".

Kinesiology incorporates knowledge from the fields of chiropractic, acupressure, nutritional science and movement teaching. It has developed enormously in the last 30 years and can be applied in nearly all aspects of life. Its' original branches and representatives are:
