Muscle Testing Explained
Muscle testing (Neuromuscular Biofeedback) tests how the body responds to stimulus through the nervous system, specifically the electric signals sent to the muscles.
It is a passive testing method that provides realtime and accurate findings and immediate measurements of how to best balance a persons biochemistry to support the body in healing.
This technique is used by Applied Kinesiologists and Chiropractors.
At the CHHE we use stimulus from:
Vial samples (vitamins, minerals, bacteria, immune markers, foods)
Light & biophotonic emissions
Organ trigger points (energy circuits used in Traditional Chinese Medicine)
To get one of two reactions from muscles:
1. a weak response (blocked electric signal - muscles no not activate)
2. a strong response (clean, uninterrupted signal - muscles activate and lock at the joint)
Interruptions in signals from the brain to the muscle indicate problems - and therein lies key information about the root cause of someone's health condition.
Through Muscle Testing we find:
✅ Nutritional deficiencies
✅ Bone misalignment
✅ Pathogenic activity
✅ Food sensitivities
✅ Blocks in acupuncture system
✅ State of the immune system
✅ Ideal dosing of supplements
Muscle response therefore indicates the physical, chemical and energetic state of the body and we are able to test exactly what the individual requires in order to heal.
