Muscle testing is a bio-feedback mechanism that allows the health kinesiologist to access the bio-computer of the body and to assess and upgrade its performance.
In an HK session, you will be asked to lie on a couch fully clothed but without your shoes. The kinesiologist will then use a muscle on your body, usually a lower arm muscle, to test where the weakness in the body lies and exactly what treatment has to be carried out to help your system overcome this weakness so that you can get well again.
The health kinesiologist will then hold various acupuncture points to bring about balance in the body. At other times, your kinesiologist will also apply magnets to various areas or ask you to think a word or sentence while he or she is holding the acupuncture points. In this way, both physical and emotional stresses can be addressed. Sounds weird, but it works!
