What is Muscle Testing/Monitoring?
The kinesiologist applies pressure to a contracted muscle and the client is asked to match or resist that pressure. The kinesiologist evaluates the functioning of the muscle in response to a specific stimulus. The response of the muscle, whether it is able to remain in contraction or unlocks, gives the kinesiologist feedback.
This feedback is used to determine what the priority stresses are and the best way to address them.
Using muscle testing to communicate directly with the body helps assess a person's response to any stimulus.

How long does testing take?
That really depends on the overall health of a client.
Before testing any substances (see test kits: http://www.creativekinesiology.com/testkits.htm) a full kinesiology body balance needs to be performed on the client. The body must be in neutral mode before accurate testing takes place.
Depending on the state of health (mind & body), it may take 10 minutes or up to 2 hours. Some clients may physically be unable to have a full body balance treatment because their muscles are too weak, or they are in too much pain. Also, if a client is extremely stressed, their muscles will keep locking up and not allow for accurate testing. This is where the use of a surrogate is extremely useful.
All the test kits I possess would mean testing for 2-3 hours. On top of a body balance, that would be too tiring a procedure, so I tend to split the testing into different sessions.
What does a full kinesiology balance cover?
The main imbalances tested for takes place at the I.V.F. (Intervertebral Foramina):
The 7 factors of the I.V.F:
• The Nervous System
• The Lymphatic System
• The Vascular System
• The Cerebrospinal Fluid
• Emotional/Mental Stress
• Nutrition Reflex
All the above 7 systems are connected to each other; one will not function perfectly if another is out of balance. They all fall into categories of Mental, Physical, Energy or Chemical. These 4 areas have to be addressed in order for total well-being to take place.
In Applied Kinesiology, assessing the strength of a muscle is in fact assessing which factors of the I.V.F. need correcting. The muscles act like energy reflexes and will strengthen and weaken based on the condition of the 7 factors of the I.V.F.
Methods used in Kinesiology originate from and include (not an exhaustive list):
• Nutritional Therapy
• Sound Therapy
• Colour Therapy
• Emotional Release Therapies
• Lymphatic Drainage
• Flower and Gem Essence Therapy
Techniques from all the above modalities can be employed to assess imbalances in the body and find best methods for treatment. Being able to diagnose the most suitable and efficient therapy or therapies to resolve problems saves time and money.

Will Kinesiology interfere with medication?
No. Kinesiology is a complementary therapy. A practitioner will generally take a medical history, including details of any medication. In the
What is a Surrogate?
Because of age, debilitative disease, acute pain, and local pathology or inflammation etc., the use of a surrogate may be necessary.
A surrogate is someone that connects with the client via touch or through the use of a vibrational witness (such as a hair sample). Surrogates that I use are ones that I have primed for such work, through receiving regular body balances, so that their energy is in top form. That way, we can get to work very quickly. The surrogate takes on the energy imbalances of the client, but is physically strong enough for me to do the corrective work.
Occasionally, a client may want to bring a surrogate of their own (normally a healthy friend or relative, who I can use for testing, once a body balance takes place).
A surrogate also makes distant kinesiology work possible.
Surrogacy is also recommended for working with babies, young children, animals and the elderly.
Because a surrogate connects to the client's energy, it is essential that they are emotionally and physically balanced. Many a time a surrogate takes on board the emotional baggage of a client for a short period of time, so only someone in excellent health may be able to work this through their system quickly, without harm.

What are the Contraindications?
Age, debilitative disease, acute pain, and local pathology or inflammation may require the use of a surrogate. There are also some restrictions for those using a pace-maker.
