Health Kinesiology is a modern form of alternative medicine based on “gentle muscle testing combined with verbal questioning to communicate directly with your body’s unique energy system.”  This is commonly done as tests to the arm’s resistance of motion, and careful monitoring of the response. Practitioners say that they are able to discern the needs of a patient through these tests, allowing them to provide targeted treatments:
“Each procedure your body selects via muscle testing highlights one part of the stress that has upset your system. As acupressure points are held, your body regains balance around the highlighted stress and moves back to a healthier state. “
Many of the treatments, as the word acupressure implies, are based in traditional Chinese medicines. As in many more traditional uses of meridian points, Health Kinesiology focuses on restoring the body’s energetic balance. Pollution, radiation, illness, fatigue and stress can all harm this delicate system in innumerable ways, and oftentimes a person won’t even know themselves what’s causing these problems.
“Life can be challenging and it is not always easy to change the things you want to change—whether that is your health, your job, your relationship or all of these and more. Sometimes we just don’t know where to start and how to keep ourselves motivated. Health Kinesiologists use muscle testing as a way to find out why your physical, emotional, chemical and nutritional systems fell out of balance and how to go about changing them for the better. In a world where we are bombarded by information from other people, Health Kinesiology lets you get information from you. The body is doing its best to communicate with us, via twinges, pains, anxiety etc, and muscle testing enables this communication to solve its problems.”
