How to test and balance a muscle with Systematic Kinesiology

Systematic Kinesiology has as a fundamental principle to look at health from a holistic perspective.  What makes Systematic Kinesiology unique is that the skilled practitioner is accessing the intelligence of the client’s body to reveal what is out of balance and what it needs to return to wholeness.  By working with a wide range of areas – emotional, nutritional, physical and energetic systems – results are impressive.  By using muscle testing, the body’s biofeedback tool, the practitioner can identify what is stressing the body, as well as interpret what corrections the body needs to come back into balance.

What does holistic mean?

When we think of health and what it means, we usually think of what we eat, our diet, and how much we move in the form of exercise or indeed not move.  Most of us tend to lead more sedentary lives. When we consider health from a holistic perspective, what that means is we’re considering not just the physical, and the chemical nature of the body, but also the mind and the brain.  We consider emotions to play a significant role in healthcare and stress is often overwhelming.

The tool of testing muscle function enables the practitioner to assess where imbalances might be found, and using many tools, the intention is to strengthen and balance the muscle.  When we muscle test, we are not simply testing the muscle itself but as an extension of the nervous system.  Our aim is to identify the primary cause(s) of symptoms from a wide range of possibilities – such as structural, mental/emotional, biochemical and energetic (acupuncture).

In this video, Siobhan Guthrie tests some muscles to first identify if any are weak (out of balance).

She then demonstrates using a Systematic Kinesiology approach, how the muscle circuit is balanced holistically (by defusing emotions, checking for relevant nutrition, and using the body’s own circulation and lymphatic reflexes).

Since muscle moves bones, when a muscle is balanced it means that a client may feel more energised and if pain had been experienced before, pain is often reduced or eliminated.  When a muscle is tense due to emotional stress, food sensitivities or structure imbalances, then the effect of a balance, helps to release that tension.

By being able to test a client specifically what “stresses” them (food, emotions etc), it helps us get better results for our clients with this very unique and individual approach.
