What Is Muscle Testing?

Muscle testing is the form of applied Kinesiology. The concept of muscle testing is that the body responds to stress or remedy in an instant on the cellular level. By applying force to a limb such at the arm, we can determine if the body response is a positive or negative one instantly, which provides information on exactly what the body needs.

Healing on a cellular level

Through muscle testing we are able to peel back the layers of illness, to heal down to the cellular level.

What is Muscle Testing?

Muscle Testing is a non-invasive system of assessing the body’s organs, systems and functions to determine all areas of the body that are functioning less than optimally, what caused that dysfunction, and ultimately what the body needs to heal at 100%. We are able to uncover all toxicities and deficiencies in the body, so we can begin to safely and effectively detox and rebalance.

How does it work?

Nutrition Response Testing, through muscle testing, allows your own body to communicate on a cellular level where imbalances are occurring and potential causes of these imbalances.

Examples of imbalances in the body are metabolic weight issues, digestive distress, fertility complications, hormonal imbalance, mood mental health diagnosis, restlessness, fatigue, physical pain, chronic infections and many more!

The Nutrition Response Testing procedure is performed lying down with your arm extended straight. The assessment is done against a strong muscle indicator (immovable arm). If the tested area on the body is under stress, the Autonomic Nervous System will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm, meaning the arm will weaken and drop.

While many areas may show up on the scan, we are able to narrow it down to the one priority area that started this “degenerative party” in the first place. After locating the main area of distress, we want to uncover what caused that stress to the body, we check the 5 most common stressors that can cause symptoms of poor health.

These stressors include heavy chemical toxicity, hidden food sensitivities, heavy metal toxicity, foreign chemicals, immune challenges (parasite, bacteria, viral, fungal/mold), scar interferences and even emotions. When these stressors accumulate in our body over time, they can impair the function of major endocrine glands, metabolic glands and organs that are crucial to our health.

Once the underlying issues are discovered, the next step in Nutrition Response Testing is to see what nutrients your body may need to respond properly and balance this toxic overload.

When your body receives the proper nutrients in the forms of whole food essential/whole herb supplements, vitamins /minerals, or detox support, the body is able to address these toxins and rebalance itself. When this happens, symptoms lessen and, in most cases, disappear.

How many session will I need?

The amount of sessions depends on the severity of your symptoms/diagnosis. It is likely you will be seeing great results within a few weeks, but we still go deeper from there to ensure whatever is holding the body back, doesn’t return. In general, 12 sessions is a good standard, as we have made enough to see shifts in chronic illness, acute symptoms, and recovery of the damaged organs.
