Muscle Response Testing

During the Celestial Awakenings workshops you will learn how to use Muscle Response Testing to connect to another and get reliable answers to questions. 

This is a derivative of Applied Kinesiology and can be accessed in a number of ways.  Several of these methods will be taught so you can use the way the suits you most.

Applied Kinesiology

Applied Kinesiology was derived from the ancient art of Acupuncture, which was developed by the Chinese between 3000 and 25 BC.

Muscle Response Testing is a diagnostic technique that was developed in 1964 by Dr George Goodheart, a Chiropractor.  He developed a diagnostic system called Applied Kinesiology, which allowed muscles to be tested for clinical and diagnostic purposes, not just to determine muscle strength. 

Dr Goodheart went on to develop a diagnostic system to use a weak muscle to determine an imbalanced meridian.  People talk about muscles being tight, or in spasm, causing pain and pulling the spine out of line. 

Goodheart concluded that it wasn’t really muscle spasm causing the trouble, but that weak muscles on one side of the body can cause normal muscles opposing to become or seem tight.  It was then discovered that by merely touching a reflex point and testing any previously strong muscle, a weakness in the organ could be diagnosed. 

Think of a kitchen door held in place by two springs, so it can swing either way (Fig 1.).  As long as the tension on both springs is equal, the system is in balance. 

If, however, one spring weakens, the opposing spring ties itself in knots taking up the slack (Fig 2.).  No amount of oiling the knotted spring will rebalance the system; you must replace (or strengthen) the weak spring.

Muscle Response

It has now been determined that muscle testing can be used for virtually any question that can be asked of the body to make determinations about physiology, skeletal, allergies, nutritional imbalances, emotional states or anything that can affect body, mind and spirit. 

Once the information is ascertained, muscle testing can then be used to find out what the body or mind will respond to in terms of a resolution to the problem.
