The following are outlines of some of the main aspects of muscle testing which one can learn in courses, or experience in one-to-one consultations.
Muscle strength and balance is evaluated using light-touch muscle testing. Muscles that unlock are strengthened using corrections from acupressure, massage, and the Chinese meridian system.
One of the discoveries of Touch for Health was that each muscle in the body relates to a specific meridian, (a pathway of energy through the body). Therefore, we can test muscles and use them to evaluate the strength of the meridians, or the primo vascular system, at the same time.
Since it began, muscle testing has steadily expanded into many different modalities.
Much of the electrical / circuit work comes into the realm of brain integration and works with aspects such as learning problems. Touch for Health has developed many switch-on points and techniques for the eyes, ears, co-ordination, and for the brain as a whole.
Dr. Paul Dennison brought to the forefront Brain Gym, whose discoveries on updating conventional cross patterning movements have been most profound. While “cross crawling” is considered a normal motor activity, many people are not switched on to this integrated movement. (bi-lateral muscle activation can create stress and weakness). Consequently, their body prefers non-integrated models which have a detrimental effect on the ability to learn, or respond appropriately to stress. Switching people back on in this respect is a very basic technique. The simplicity of techniques which one can learn in this area is truly amazing.
Emotional Stress Release
Stress release is what muscle balancing is all about. Physical, mental, emotional, chemical, environmental and behavioural stress are things which cause our problems, and the area where these techniques have their greatest effect. Every course and consultation in this field includes techniques to relieve some kind of stress.
Various stress release techniques are combined with emotional balancing, affirmations, visualization, massage techniques, and movement exercises.
Gordon Stokes, Daniel Whiteside and Candace Calloway of Three-In-One Concepts have done a great deal of work in the area of emotional defusion and advanced repatterning. This kind of stress release of past trauma frees the person to get on with his or her life. Their courses in Three-In-One Concepts can bring about profound positive changes in people.
Food Sensitivity Testing
In recent years sensitivities to food, the environment and chemicals have become major concerns. Most of us have some food sensitivities, and unfortunately we are often not aware of the more subtle ones which are affecting our health nonetheless.
Muscle testing is a wonderful tool for determining food intolerances or sensitivities. In fact, individuals are able to regularly monitor how their bodies cope with certain foods. Natural Bio-Energetics TM includes a great deal of information on this topic. Working this idea into any diet regime adds further value. Even young children, babies and pets are not excluded from help. Much feedback has come from mothers in using testing with their newborns.
