Muscle Testing Explained

Testing Explained

Muscle testing (Neuromuscular Biofeedback) tests how the body responds to specific stimulus through the nervous system and its electric signals to muscles. It is a testing method that provides realtime and accurate findings often used by Applied Kinesiologists and Chiropractors.

At the CHHE we use stimulus from: 👉🏽 Samples in vials   👉🏽 Light    👉🏽 Organ trigger points

To get one of two reactions from muscles: 🚫 weak response (blocked message) 💎 strong response (clear message). Interruptions in signals from the brain to the muscle indicate problems.

Through Muscle Testing we find:
✅ Nutritional deficiencies     

✅ Bone misalignment    

✅ Pathogenic activity
✅ Food sensitivities               

✅ Allergies                     

✅ 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.
