Manual Muscle Testing

A change in the tone of the muscle from strong to weak or weak to strong in the presence of a given stimulus. The theory of muscle testing is compatible with the classical understanding of  neurology, physiology, and elecotromagnetic principles. No concepts of mysterious forces or lack a scientific rational.

Just like an unpleasant sound or smell causes an immediate reaction, any stimulus has the potential to change the energetic patterns of the body. If those changes are significant enough, a change in muscle tone will occur as well. Muscle testing allows you to identify allergies, food and environmental that may cause harm to the body.

Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement. Applied Kinesiology is an alternative method of diagnosis that employs Muscle testing.  Originated by Dr. John Goodheart  in the 1960’s.  He found that  muscles in the human body instantly become weak when the body is exposed to allergens or harmful substances to the body.

Muscle testing is a key tool in Applied Kinesiology where allergens and harmful substances are identified by placing pressure on specific muscles.

The basis of Kinesiology is that the body is an electrical system that is continually in communication with each of its 600+ muscles;  It recognizes that there are connections between muscles, organs, and the Chinese meridian system. If a muscle is electrically in balance, the muscle remains strong when a stimulus is applied. If a muscle is out of balance, the muscle will become weak in the presence of an applied stimulus, such as when a practitioner applies a consistent force on a muscle in order to observe the body’s response.

Muscle testing therefore, is a system of obtaining feedback in order to examine the current functioning of someone’s body. By applying a degree of pressure to a large muscle, such as the deltoid muscle in the arm/shoulder, it is possible to obtain information relating to energy blockages, the health of organs, nutritional needs, and food allergies, in addition to other things.
