Biofeedback Testing – Muscle Testing
Biofeedback Analysis Testing or Muscle Testing is an effective, non-invasive and painless health screening modality that enables the practitioner to identify the body’s stressors quickly and accurately, without the use of needles, as used by medical allergists.
Biofeedback Analysis Testing is based on the concept of internal energy fundamental to traditional Chinese medicine, muscle testing is a non invasive way of evaluating the body’s imbalances and assessing its needs. It involves testing the body’s responses when applying slight pressure to a large muscle, to provide information on energy blockages, the functioning of the organs, nutritional deficiencies, and food sensitivities, among other things. It can also be used to test the body’s responses to herbs and other remedies.
This effect is due to properties of resonance and dissonance. When two wavelengths of energy are in harmony or in tune with each other, they resonate together. The effect of resonance can be observed when a particular note causes a chandelier to vibrate, or a singer hitting a certain note causing a glass to break. The object was vibrating at the same rate as that particular note and being in harmony with that note, it absorbs the energy of it and increases it’s rate of vibration. In the case of the glass breaking, the glass absorbs so much energy that it vibrates apart.
We experience the effects of resonance and dissonance all the time, but most of us are virtually unaware of it. For example, when we meet someone who thinks and feels as we do, we say we “get a good vibe” from that person or “you’re on the same wavelength as me” or we get “a good feeling about someone”. When we are in harmony with someone in this manner, we feel more energized, stronger and more alive. On the other hand, you have probably noticed that contention tends to drain your energy. We’ll say “I get a bad feeling” from someone or some place.
Biofeedback Analysis Testing takes advantage of the body’s ability to sense and feel harmonizing or conflicting energies.
