Muscle Testing

 

A Dialogue with The Body 

The original model of muscle testing came from research pioneered in the late 1930’s and 40’s by a husband and wife team of physiotherapist known as the Kendalls. The work evolved from the pioneering work of many chiropractors and two in particular – Dr. George Goodheart DC, the founder of Applied Kinesiology and the late Dr. Alan Beardall DC. Dr. Goodheart expanded upon Kendalls’ research, adding a model termed ‘physician-mediated testing’. Dr. Beardall researched the area of Kinesiology and body integrity and created an elaborate, sophisticated, data-recall system now known as Clinical Kinesiology.

Muscle testing is an art that has its basis in the Science of Kinesiology. It is a valuable feedback tool that assists a practitioner in confirming and gathering information. A human being can give a practitioner feedback through this kinetic system by displaying a change in muscle integrity. Muscle testing gives a place of reference so that the human is able to respond to questions via a body-mind interface, which comes from deep within the unconscious and cellular memory.

InnerDialogue, uses a very unique clearing process developed by Solihin Malim Thom DO, that provide a clean and clear means of accessing information and free of errors commonly found in various other types of kinesiology.

  By applying gentle pressure against your arm, the muscle either remains strong or goes weak. This “binary” / "Yes or No" display is used when determining what are the main components (primary lesion) that need to be seen, whether it is physical, emotional, sensory, postural or mental.

As a InnerDialogue practitioner, being a witness/companion; a silent partner is paramount to the process. The ideas, references, hunches and intuition from the practitioner may or may not be relevant. The mere intent which derives from either beliefs, thoughts, or philosophy – can act as a force, that silently and erroneously create changes in the muscle integrity of the client.

Therefore the practitioner operates from a place of surrender which allows for the capacity to be present, guided, and attentive to one’s own self while working with a client. This provides an environment for the client to step back, see the bigger picture and unveil the forces or influences that impedes the body’s potential to heal and the client to develop into a congruent human being.
