An Integrated Health Approach
Dr Liakos is a Certified Applied Kinesiologist. Applied Kinesiology (AK), is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing with other standard methods of diagnosis.
Applied Kinesiology enables her to locate the source of your health problems so they can be effectively resolved. Dr Liakos uses only noninvasive techniques and protocols. AK pulls from many other health disciplines including but not limited to eastern medicine, psychology, osteopathy, nutrition, chiropractic, acupuncture, naturopathy, podiatry, western medicine, diet and lifestyle changes and more. It is the only holistic approach to health that looks at the body structurally, chemically and brain function together. This is called the "Triad of Health" By looking at all three sides she is able to correct the imbalances on each side and help restore your body back to optimal health.
Dr. Liakos is not your typical chiropractor. With over 37 years of experience, she has developed a practice that incorporates a total body approach to helping you get well and live your best life.
As a holistic chiropractor she first determines if there is nerve interference between the brain and the nervous system. Nerve interference can be caused by many different things. Subluxation (misalignment of a vertebrae), physical, mental and chemical stress, accidents, dietary choices, medications, alcohol and recreational drugs can all cause nerve interference through out the body. When this occurs, your brain can not manufacture and then send the proper chemicals down the spinal cord to the spinal nerve roots and then to the peripheral nerves to run your body properly.
What makes Dr. Liakos so different, is her combining of chiropractic and applied kinesiology. She has studied with the top researchers in her field and has combined their protocols to develop her own special technique uniquely her own. She knows and understands the “Total Body Concept" (Triad of Health). No other health practitioners, “Traditional or Alternative” does this with the complete understanding of the three sides of the triad. How they interact with each other, how they must be evaluated for the underlying cause of a health problem and how these imbalances must be corrected. By understanding how an imbalance on one side of this triad can affect the other two sides, Dr. Liakos has been able to help her patients get well on multiple levels.
This is why Dr. Liakos is truly unique. By bringing together Applied Kinesiology and Holistic Chiropractic Care she has been able to help thousands of patients male and female, young and old, with all types of health problems. Patients that come to see her usually have not done well with traditional medicine and other holistic health care professionals. Dr. Liakos treats each patient as the distinct individual they are and puts them on protocols she developed to specifically meet their health needs. She sees patients in her Long Island office which is conveniently accessible by public transportation and is located just 20 miles from Manhattan.
