Muscle Response Testing

Growing out of the field of Applied Kinesiology and Touch for Health, Professional Kinesiology utilizes techniques from traditional acupuncture, chiropractic, osteopathic, and psychological theories.
Using manual muscle testing to detect weaknesses and compensations, specific reflexes on the body are stimulated to restore balance to weak inhibited muscles so over facilitated muscles can return to a normal state. This eliminates compensation patterns, re-establishes proper muscle firing, and honors the body's natural ability to attain homeostasis. 

Definition of Professional Kinesiology:

The International College of Professional Kinesiology Practice definition:

"Kinesiology is a communication tool that enables a person to assess and upgrade their performance in all areas of their life. Kinesiology is the science of energy balancing and is grounded in the study of anatomy and physiology. It uses muscles as monitors of stress and imbalance within the body and enables people to detect and correct various imbalances that may relate to stress, nutrition, learning problems, minor injuries and other issues they meet in their daily life."

How does Kinesiology work?

Tight Muscles Literally Turn Off!

By Turing On Weak Muscles the nerve receptors of the opposing Tight Muscles become inhibited thereby naturally Eliminating Compensation.

Research shows that muscle strength is influenced by our stress response to emotions, chemicals, electrical and structural factors. Kinesiology aims at reprogramming the stress response through various reflex systems of the body.

Every muscle has an organ relationship, for example:

quadriceps relate to the small intestines, or neck flexors relate to the stomach. Ancient Asian medical theories reveal that our organs house our emotions/feelings. We feel a broken heart in our actual heart or we feel grief in our lungs as we sigh.

We literally feel specific emotions in specific muscles.

With Kinesiology we can access the subconscious emotional reaction locked in the muscle's memory and help re-pattern the response through the acupuncture system along with other neurological reflexes. This not only improves muscle function but also alleviates undesirable reactions to stress that manifest in the body.
