Wholistic kinesiology is the art and discipline of neuromuscular evaluation meant for optimizing health and is considered an alternative technique. The basis of this remarkable tool is that it can allow you to speak to the body and get information. This information can involve a person’s physical, chemical/nutritional or emotional body.
Muscle testing involves placing a part of the body in a specific position and then applying pressure to that body part or body area. The premise is when pressure is applied to an area of the skin which covers the muscle – signals are sent via the nerve endings in that section of skin through the muscles to the central processing centers in the brain, which register sensations. If the body is healthy the muscles remain strong, but if a problem is detected in the circuit, the muscles will display weakness.
By testing the quality of the muscle strength when we push against it, we can evaluate the imbalance in the nervous system and we can ask the body what it may need to retore it into optimal health.
