Muscle Response Testing AKA Applied Kinesiology

In Applied Kinesiology and muscle response testing we test many muscles to check the integrity of the muscular system and skeletal system of the body.  Even though I have been a student of Applied Kinesiology and muscle testing for over 20 years now, I still continue to marvel at how valuable a tool it is. In fact, I am truly astonished that more doctors do not use muscle testing in their evaluations and treatment.

Through a series of muscle testing, I can examine how a person’s body is functioning. I find a muscle that tests “weak” and then look to determine why the muscle is not functioning properly- then apply the best therapy to help the patient.

When a person has poor health it usually means that there is an imbalance in the three major health categories-chemically, mentally, or structurally. Looking at the whole person to determine the causes of this weak muscle, I can evaluate these different areas and direct therapy towards the imbalanced area(s).

It is a common thing for people to exclaim “wow, that’s amazing” upon seeing the before and after application of muscle response testing. I use a variety of muscle testing techniques such as: TBM, NET, NMT, CRA, NRT, and GRT (quantum neurology). I have also been certified by the International College of Applied Kinesiology.
