History of muscle testing

Using muscles to gather information on what is happening with the physiology of the body has been around since the early 1964 when Dr. George Goodheart first made the correlation between finding a weak muscle and altered neurological (nerve) function. After his first discovery he then went on to correlated how muscles strength related to other functions in the body. He called this type of analysis Applied Kinesiology. 

Over the last 60 years others have taken his foundational work and modified the technique: Dr. Michael Lebowitz (applied kinesiology), Dr. Versendaal (contract reflex analysis), Dr. Ulan (nutritional response testing), Dr. Keppel (muscle response analysis), Dr. Klinghart (autonomic response analysis), Dr. Marshall (quantum reflex analysis) and Dr. Frank Springob (Morphogenic Field Technique).

With each new technique their muscle testing addressed some areas that the preceding techniques had not taking into account. As the understanding of the nature of the human body has become clearer the muscle testing procedures expended from just using the central nervous system as a functional component to include: the acupuncture system, the fascia, the autonomic nervous system, cellular energy and now even the energy signature of atoms. All of which plays a part in how the body communicates with every cell in the body. 

The points of the various testing systems, up to now, have been done on contact points that are on physical body. But with the understanding of quantum physics and how it relates to the human body – it has been discovered thru clinical trials - that one can use not only the contact points on the body but also what is coming off the human body – an energy field. In quantum physics this energy that surrounds the body is called a Torus Field.

Quantum physics has shown that all atoms have an energy signature. This is the energy that is emitted from atoms. Each atom has its own type of vibrational and electro-magnetic energy field that is created by the electrons that move around the nucleus of an atom. You can demonstrate this Electro-magnetic energy by wrapping a wire around a piece of mental and running current (electrons) thru the wire. This produces an electro-magnetic energy field that can be measured.

The human body consists of many types of organs that form “systems” within our body and these systems function in a coordinated fashion that keeps us alive. But if we look deeper into the nature of organs we see cells and if you go even smaller, you discover molecules and atoms. The combined effects atoms form an energy field that surrounds the body. This energy field has information with it and our body uses it as communication system. The nature of the energy fields allows us to use muscle testing as a means of communicating with the body.

How to utilize muscle testing to gather information:

The type of muscle testing that I use is called the bi-digital o-ring test. It was developed in 1980 by an M.D. named Yoshikai O’Mura. It is considered by many the most accurate form because it involves the least amount of muscle groups. To start with one makes an “o” out of the thumb and another finger, typically the ring or little finger.

In this process I find the strongest of the weakest muscle configuration, typically that is the little finger to the thumb and the weakest of the strongest muscle configuration which for most people it will be the ring finger to the thumb. 

When I am testing for something that will help the body I look for what makes the body go stronger and when I am looking for something that has a negative effect on the body I test for things that make the body go weak.
