Applied Kinesiology is the art and science of muscle testing. It is informational testing and capable of total communication with the body and its signals, to determine balance or imbalance, harmony or disharmony, health or ill health, ease or disease. A practitioner uses kinesiology as a biofeedback instrument to get information regarding the client’s health, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual state. The response of a muscle indicates whether or not the area being activated is a stressed area.
The method of Applied Kinesiology is similar in ways to, but not invasive as, allergy testing. When an individual goes to a doctor to find out what they are allergic to, the doctor typically pricks the patient’s body with the suspected allergens. The patient’s skin will have an adverse reaction to whatever they are allergic to thus providing an identification of the offending substances. A person can get the same results more easily and less painfully through Kinesiology. In the simplest of terms, a muscle is isolated on the patient to be used for testing. The practitioner then has the patient hold the allergen (or whatever is being tested such as a pharmaceutical drug, food etc.) in their hands and then tests the muscle for strength. A strong muscle indicates a desire for what is being tested and a weak muscle indicates an adverse reaction. This informational tool is also used in more complex ways on the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies of a person. Correctly done, it really is as simple as it sounds.
Applied Kinesiology is a language by which a practitioner communicates with the conscious and subconscious mind of a client were all the pertinent information is stored and available.
The practitioner, using the muscle test to read the energies of the body via the neurological sensory receptors and the acupuncture meridians system, accesses this information.
This method of communication is done by “touch” on various reflex points, lymphatic points, trigger points and acupuncture points as well as the use of hand modes and verbal statements.
Kinesiology provides valuable information when the practitioner is well trained.
