Applied kinesiology was developed in the 1960s by the American chiropractor George Goodheart. He found that certain strains and diseases are reflected in the energy flow of the body and the muscles.
Kinesiology helps detect disturbances and imbalances in your body’s energy flow (organ functions, intolerances, …). Each organ is related to one particular muscle:
e.g. Rectus femoris (straight thigh muscle) with the small intestine, pectoralis pars clavicus with the liver, and much more.
Here, the respective muscles are tested with absolute sensitivity and precision on their function and response to diagnose possible disorders.
In addition, I can draw conclusions about possible food intolerances, nutrient deficiencies, parasite infestation, fungal colonization, etc. with the aid of certain test kits.
The mere pushing down of a limb (often the stretching of an arm) and simultaneous application of test sentences are in many cases false information, but is unfortunately practiced by many practitioners.
One thing that is extremely rarely checked is the functional significance of different muscle responses. ALWAYS check carefully whether the respective muscle is normo-, hypo-, or hyperreactive.
For example, if a person has shoulder problems or limited lung function, an arm-extended test will ALWAYS provide false information.
Why? Our large shoulder muscle (deltoid) is associated with our lung function and would significantly distort the outcome.
For some time, I had tremendous abdominal cramps at irregular intervals associated with digestive problems. A condition that I never knew from myself. For a long time I did not know what was the cause of the complaints. One day I was on a training course by Florian Schöning – a very knowledgeable osteopath. In one of the breaks, I described my symptoms to him and asked him if he had any idea where the complaints might come from.
He asked me to sit down on his treatment bed, tested several muscles, put on different sets of tests and then said – Markus, you have a parasite infection- more precisely Yersinia, a certain parasite strain. Because of my initial skepticism, I did a stool and blood test to put his diagnosis to the test, the result – Yersinia infection. I was amazed and at the same time thrilled!
After successfully fighting the Yersinia naturally within a few weeks, I immediately decided to become a kinesiologist.
Since then, I have applied kinesiology to my clients on a daily basis. It amazes me each time, what interesting information we’ll discover with this painless and natural diagnostic method.
