Intuition is accessed by all of us, muscle testing is a learned skill that can take lots of practice. But what is muscle testing?
The body is made up of muscles, organs, and glands which are interconnected through energy circuits of nerves, lymphatics, energy meridians, and blood vessels. These circuits “turn off” when blocked by illness, injury, or toxin overload. By balancing the body’s energy, the systems are reprogrammed, returning us to a state of health. Muscle testing is one method that allows us to do this.
An indicator muscle (any muscle that is available) is used to test the answer to our “strong” and “weak” questions. Your practitioner may use your arm or leg muscles or their fingers (like I do) to test. A negative answer to a question gives a sagging, clicking, or spongy feeling to the indicator muscle by short-circuiting or overloading the system. This makes it impossible for the indicator muscle to stay strong or hold position when pressure is applied. Once the reason is cleared, by balancing pathogen or emotion or even structure, the muscle will become strong, meaning the issue is resolved.
There is a great course in Guelph coming up soon which offers more information on finding out what kind of intuitive you are as well as some information on muscle testing all in a fun, hands on setting. For more information, click on this link!
