Manual Muscle Testing

Muscle Testing, the tool of the trade

Muscle testing is the connecting tool within all kinesiology. Be it structural, sports or applied/specialized kinesiology. But there is a difference in performance and result.

Specialized kinesiology houses many different types of special types of kinesiology. Where Applied Kinesiology is the name and branche of those practitioners that directly relate to the first person(s) to perform muscle testing in the way it is presented in this article.

Muscle testing within applied/specialized kinesiology

All muscle testing within kinesiology is done with “testing” in mind. But where you can test for range and strength, one can test for quality too. And quality testing is the aim of muscle testing within applied/specialized kinesiology.

Muscle testing is easily explained, yet not that easy to master.

  1. Place a limb in a position where the muscle tested is in a shortened position.
  2. Move the limb in such a direction the muscle tested is lengthened.
  3. Focus on the quality of the resistence felt.

While testing there are three type of operandi for quality:

  • “Strong” – the limb does not move.
  • “Weak” – the limb moves easily.
  • “Blocked” – the limb does not move, even after a spindle cell manipulation.

Based on any of these reactions one can perform miracles in collaboration with the subconscious (Body Mind Spirit Connection)

Muscle testing, an ideomotor response

Muscle testing shows the reaction of the Body Mind Spirit Connection at any given moment on any given subject. The felt quality is a measure for the reasoning within the “collaboration field” between the testor and the testperson.

Learning muscle testing is primairily learning to get in contact with your subconscious. In other words, one learns perfect self-hypnosis on one self. And when this is perfected – as you will do when you keep on practizing – any session has the potential to make changes for the better in the testperson.

Muscle testing for the better of all

As said muscle testing is done to connect within the “collaboration field” between the tester and the testperson. Within this field the reaction(s) of the muscle tests are accordingly. This means when the tester thinks of “pink” (remember the pink elephant), the reaction of the muscle test will give direction of the way the field is reacting on it, without the testperson knowing it.

Therefore the mind of the testor must be set to “the better for all concerned”.  This means that only with the best intention one will get the greatest impact on the change in the testperson. Because all information gathered, must be interpreted and relayed back in the field for verification.
