Specialized applied Kinesiology is an adjunctive natural healing method that uses muscle testing as a biofeedback technique that is used to determine communication problems, imbalances or dis-harmonies in mind, body or spirit. Once identified the practitioner may employ a wide range of kinesiology techniques to correct the imbalances identified and confirm the correction by re-testing the muscle.
At its most basic level, muscle testing is used to check if individual muscles are functioning properly. The Specialized Kinesiologist places your limbs into specific positions and then applies firm or light pressure depending on the type of testing being employed. The quality of response to this pressure determines whether or not the muscle is working properly (facilitated), or not working properly (inhibited). Imbalances in the muscle tone result in structural deviations that can cause a verity of client complaints from discomfort and pain to more serious conditions of dis-ease.
Each muscle is also linked to an acupuncture meridian and has physical, emotional, nutritional and energetic components. Many somatic reflexes that affect body fluid flows such as neurolymphatic and neurovascular reflexes also have organ and muscle relationships and are used in many corrective procedures. Imbalances in any one of these systems can also cause a muscle to weaken and a correction of the imbalance in most cases corrects the muscle weakness.
A Specialized Kinesiologist through muscle testing can detect and correct many different components of an imbalanced system and restore harmony which often reverses the process of dis-ease. In specialized applied kinesiology, the Specialized Kinesiologists observes the client as a whole organism rather than a symptom. This allows many different avenues of approach and requires that the client be totally involved in their own healing process.
The following are brief outlines of some of the main aspects of an applied kinesiology experience in one-to-one consultations:
Muscle strength and balance is evaluated using muscle checking and can imbalances can be corrected using often simple skin surface reflexes that require rubbing or holding points similar to that of acupressure, massage, and the Chinese meridian system.
Emotional Stress Release
Stress release is what kinesiology is all about. Physical, mental, emotional, chemical, environmental and behavioral stress are things which cause our problems, and the area where these techniques have their greatest effect. Every course and consultation in the field of applied kinesiology includes techniques to relieve some kind of stress. Various stress release techniques are combined with emotional balancing, affirmations, visualization, massage techniques, and movement exercises. Charles Krebs, Gordon Stokes, Daniel Whiteside and Candace Calloway of Three-In-One Concepts have done a great deal of work in the area of emotional diffusion and advanced re-patterning. This kind of stress release of past trauma frees the person to get on with his or her life. Their courses in Three-In-One Concepts can bring about profound positive changes in people.
Food Sensitivity Testing
In recent years allergies and sensitivities to food, environment and chemicals have become major concerns. Most of us have some food sensitivities, and are often not aware of its negative affect on our health. Links in muscle checking can serve as a wonderful tool for determining food intolerance or sensitivities
Much of the electrical / circuit work in kinesiology comes into the realm of brain integration and works with aspects such as learning problems. Applied kinesiology has developed many switch-on points and techniques for the eyes, ears, coordination, and for the brain as a whole. Switching people “back on” in this respect is very basic kinesiology work. The simplicity of techniques that one can learn in this area is truly amazing.
