Self Muscle Testing, and Kinesiology

Self Muscle Testing, and Kinesiology

Kinesiologists use muscle testing to access client’s biofeedback system to help identify stressors, and blockages in the body. You too can learn this simple skill for self testing.

Muscle testing is the art of applying pressure to a muscle and looking for either a yes/no, or stress response. It’s used to access information from your body at this present time. It doesn’t help with fortune telling.

Self Muscle Testing

Anybody can do it because it uses your electrical system and your muscles. Even small children can learn it.

Here’s how it works:

If you’ve ever been to a kinesiologist or holistic physician experienced in muscle testing, you’ve experienced muscle testing. The practitioner asks you to stick out your arm and resist his/her pressure. It feels like they are trying to push your arm down after they’ve told you not to let them do it. Everything is going fine, and then all of a sudden they press and your arm falls down no matter how hard you try to keep it up. That is using muscle testing.

Simply stated, the body has within it and surrounding it, an electrical network or grid. If anything impacts your electrical system that does not maintain or enhance your health and your body’s balance, your muscles, when having physical pressure applied, are unable to hold their strength. (Muscle power is directly linked to the balance of the electrical system.) In other words, if pressure is applied to an individual’s extended arm while their body’s electrical system is being adversely affected, the muscles will weaken and the arm will not be able to resist the pressure. The circuits of the electrical system are overloaded or have short-circuited, causing a weakening of that system. However, if pressure is applied while the electrical system is being positively affected, the circuits remain strong, balanced and capable of fully functioning throughout the body. The muscles will remain strong, the person will easily resist and the arm will hold its position.

This electrical/muscular relationship is a natural part of the human system. Kinesiology is the established method for reading the body’s balance through the balance of the electrical system at any given moment.

What you can use it for:

Primarily you are testing for what is for your body’s highest good at this moment in time. Therefore many things can apply. Following are a list of things I self muscle test for (outside of kinesiology balances).

Purchasing: Is purchasing this item a wise decision

Menu items: Which dish on the menu is the best option for me.

Dosages: Number of supplements to take at that time of time: With intention say to yourself on last-lock how many of this supplement do I need to take – 1, 2, 3…

Choices:

Which other health modality is going to help me manage my symptoms today

  • is it in my best interest to attend a workshop or not
  • which colour t-shirt should I wear today – to provide me the vibrational energy that I need.
  • is it in my highest good to purchase one bunch of celery over another

It has many applications, but if you’re unsure whether you can ask, or how to word your question, feel free to message me on Facebook or email me with your questions.

How to self muscle test

There are three primary ways to self muscle test: whole body, two handed, one handed.

Whole Body Testing

This is the best way to learn, as the results are most obvious. When you become confident with this method, and trust yourself to respond clearly then move onto the next.

Self Muscle Test

Starting position involves simply standing with your feet shoulder width apart. Relax, and bend your knees slightly (so they’re not locked). Shoulders back and head tall.

Take three slow deep breaths, and clear your mind, and ground your self – feeling your feet planted solidly to the ground.

To start with, to see how your body responds when you ask some obvious yes no questions. When it’s a yes or positive response your body sways forward slightly, and when it’s a no or negative response your body sways backward slightly.

My name is (insert your name)
My name is (insert someone elses name)

I live in (insert your suburb or country)
I live in (insert a different suburb or country)

Once you’ve mastered this, with only positive intent for yourself ask what it is you need clarity on for your wellbeing, at this present time.

Some people do this exercise seated also, but you need to be sitting upright, toward the edge of your chair so you have space between you and the backrest to move.

Mum’s can use whole body testing to help test for what their baby needs. A mother and child’s bond is very close, and can share their electrical energy. Hold your baby in your arms, keeping their well-being intent in mind, and ask what it is the baby needs with Yes/No questions:

  • Does he/she need their nappy changes?
  • Is he/she hungry?
  • Is he/she too hot (cold)?

Two handed Muscle Testing

It’s not always practical to whole body test, and you may want to do something a little more discrete, this is when you can use two-handed muscle testing.

Start with your writing hand (or dominant hand), mine is the right hand as pictured, and place your thumb to your index finger. This will be your hand you will be consciously controlling what you are doing.

With your other hand place your thumb to your ring finger. This is the hand we will be testing our electrical response with.
