Applied Kineseology/ muscle stress testing

What is Muscle Stress Testing?

System Strength Analysis or muscle stress testing is a form of Kinesiology. This technique used to analyze the body, is a growing trend among practitioners, as it can evaluate without requiring expensive or invasive diagnostic tests.


Using muscle testing has been groundbreaking in my practice thanks to its ability to uncover issues in the body before it progresses to disease. It allows me to detect weaknesses before they manifest as a condition or disease.  This provides an opportunity to tailor a plan that will strengthen, cleanse, or repair these areas as a powerful form of preventive medicine. Applied kineseology or muscle stress testing takes the guess work out of the assessment and we can tell exactly how your body will respond.  

Clinically, after one to three months of nutritional support, specific for the target system or organ which is identified as weak, the reflex point tested with system strength analysis can no longer be ‘defeated’ by a challenge test, and usually there is an improvement in the individual’s state of health and symptoms associated with that particular function in the body.


There is an intimate connection between your muscles and your nervous system. The purpose of the central nervous system, your brain and spinal cord, is to control, regulate and heal the body. Every muscle, organ and gland communicates by electrical signals, through nerves, to notify the brain of its current condition and specific needs.


Optimal health is possible when the electrical impulses in your nervous system can communicate without interference.  However, when the body is in a state of ‘dis-ease’ the brain, nervous system, gland, and organ cannot effectively communicate, thus diminishing the body's ability to regulate & heal.


Muscle testing is a way to determine the strength of these nerve impulses along the communication pathways.  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 inadequate neurological control and support is needed to re-establish a healthy energetic flow at that meridian point or nerve junction.
