Kinesiology is a brand new branch of science which was developed by doctors, chiropractors and acupuncturists in the U.S.A. They pooled their knowledge and added it to Chinese medicine to develop a totally new technology which is amazingly efficient at balancing the body so that it can return to excellent health, energy and emotional strength. It stands apart from any other type of health technology largely due to it’s use of revolutionary muscle testing.

Note: The term “kinesiology” as used here is used to mean that which is connected with either Academic Kinesiology (including Applied Kinesiology) or Specialized Kinesiology and always includes manual muscle testing. It is not to be confused with another definition of ‘kinesiology’ which is that which is taught in some colleges and is defined simply as “the branch of physiology that studies the mechanics and anatomy in relation to human movement”.

Kinesiology is a truly ‘wholistic’ system, because it looks at the whole person (not just at selected parts). When you step on a cat’s tail, it’s the other end that screams! Kinesiology as looks at all types of stresses which can cause disease. They include emotional, nutritional, structural and electrical stress.

The basis of Kinesiology is that the body is like an electrical piece of equipment, which is controlled by an incredibly complex-computer, namely the brain. The brain is continually in communication with each of the 639 muscles in the body.

If a muscle is electrically in balance, it is possible to measure a constant electrical signal from the brain to that muscle and back again, much the same as two faxes ‘talking’ to each other.

However, when the body is overstressed (through a chemical, emotional, structural or electrical cause), the electrical signals in one or more muscles go weak. It is like a fuse in your fusebox blowing. The body figures that it is better to blow a fuse than the whole thing.

This is the basis of muscle testing, which is the main tool used in kinesiology. For example, if a person has a particular muscle in their arm ‘out of balance’ (as we say), then they will not be able to hold their arm in a certain position when the kinesiologist applies pressure to it.

Basic human anatomy has shown that there is an intimate connection between your muscles and your nerve system. The purpose of the central nerve system, your brain and spinal cord, is to control, regulate, and heal the body. In order to do this, your brain must be able to send an electrical signal, or “vital energy”, over the spinal cord, through the spinal nerves and out to every muscle, organ and gland. Without the transmission of this vital energy, the body will die. If this energy is cut off from any one part of the body, that individual part will die. Every muscle, organ and gland is also able to send electrical signals over the nerves to notify the brain of its current condition and specific needs.

Optimum body function is only possible when the electrical energy in your body can travel without interference over the nerves. However, when the body is in a state of dis-ease the brain cannot effectively transmit this signal to the body parts. As a result, the ability of the brain to control, regulate and heal the body is diminished. Diminished nerve signals can be identified by performing a manual muscle test. Muscle testing is performed as a means of tuning in to the function of your body’s electrical system or nerve system. When performing a muscle test we are looking for the muscle to respond “strong”. A “strong” or facilitated muscle responds by contracting fully in response to the pressure being applied to it. If the muscle being tested is shaky, or gives way, this indicates that there is an inadequate neurologic control, or inhibition, of the muscle.

There are many reason for this, but is often the result due to neuro articular dysfunction, or spinal joint subluxation, After your chiropractor locates the source of the problem, and corrects it with a chiropractic adjustment, the brain is better able to deliver the electrical signal to the muscle, the muscle responds “strong” when tested, and the functional integrity of your nerve system has been improved. This is clinically associated with pain relief, joint stabilization, improved muscular activation, strength, flexibility, and coordination.
