Touch For Health – Kinesiology – Muscle Testing

Muscle Testing for Massage Therapists (Touch For Health® Kinesiology) is a dynamic synthesis of Eastern and Western approaches to working with the body, which can help you to reach your goals in health, performance, work and relationships. Most importantly, These classes provide the best opportunity to learn how to perform accurate muscle testing (manual resistive testing), which is a fundamental tool in many emerging methods of healing and bodywork.

The kinesiology classes offered by Polarity Healthcare are oriented toward massage therapists. Participants will use manual muscle tests to locate stress, injuries and imbalance in the body. To correct these problems, they will learn a protocol that addresses posture, muscle tone, organs, emotional issues, nutrition and nervous system functioning. The Kinesiology Connection is an excellent one-day introduction.

For those who aren’t interested in muscle testing, each class also offers practical instruction in the use of two powerful reflex methods, in-depth study of important postural muscles and an understanding of the relationship between muscles and acupuncture meridians. There is something here for every therapist. Self-help techniques and exercises for therapists and clients are also included.

How it Works

Touch For Health Kinesiology (like Applied Kinesiology from which it evolved) is a truly wholistic system. It works with the structural, chemical, energetic and emotional aspects of the body. A muscle which tests “unlocked” or “weak” is usually associated with dysfunction in a particular organ, system or meridian. This muscle response test can identify key imbalances, while they are still easily correctable. It also provides a way of testing for food sensitivities, emotional issues, and almost anything with the potential for affecting our life energy. The result can be fast, effective relief from physical and emotional stress or pain. Another potential benefit is the removal of energetic and emotional blocks that are keeping us from achieving our goals.
