each chapter section entitled Other Indications of Dysfunction,
the author cites one or more muscles to be tested.
Through clinical findings done by a few hundred Applied Kinesiologists
over the past twenty years it has been demonstrated that there
are correlations between specific muscle weaknesses and organ
dysfunction. For example, in most cases of liver dysfunction
one of the rhomboid muscles or pectoralis major sternal division
will test weak. The muscles are tested both right and
left sides. It cannot be said that every time one of
those muscles tests weak, the liver is malfunctioning.
A minor strain, nerve pressure, etc., can cause the muscle
to test weak even if the liver is normal. Occasionally
the liver isn't working right but the muscles are strong.
It is just another piece of the puzzle to study along with
the history, symptoms, lifestyle, etc., to arrive at a logical
of the positioning to perform these tests properly appear in each
section. For those of you not familiar with muscle testing,
it is an art that must skillfully be developed over time.
Some people with a minimal understanding of the system have abused
it and caused much skepticism. When performed properly it
is an extremely valuable tool.
to perform muscle testing properly:
Make sure the body is positioned as exactly as possible to perform
an accurate test.
The tester's arm not performing the test is used to stabilize
the patient to help make the test more accurate and prevent unnecessary
movement and recruitment of other muscles.
When testing, don't use enough pressure to overpower even a strong
muscle, and don't use so little that even a weak muscle will test
strong. The sensitivity to test properly will come only
with much time, patience, and practice.
During the test make sure the person doesn't "cheat"
by shifting positions, bending their limb, etc. This brings
other muscles into the test and makes it inaccurate.
Be objective. If you think beforehand that the muscle will
test weak, you may unconsciously change your pressure or direction
and make it test weak even if it is strong. This will not
benefit anyone. If you are periodically surprised by the
results you get testing, this is a fairly good indication that
you are being objective.
Your results should be able to be reproduced by others skilled
in manual muscle testing.
Your results are limited by your skills. A class given in
Touch for Health is often a good introduction to muscle testing
and should be pursued. Professionals may wish to study Applied
