Kinesiology is a s diagnostic technique that uses muscle testing to access the physiology of the body. Via muscle testing, the practitioner has a window into the structural, nutritional and emotional status of the client. This knowledge, combined with traditional nutritional training, allows for more comprehensive diagnoses and treatment programs. When using muscle testing as a tool, factors outside of the scope of a the standard physical examination can be obtained and incorporated in treatment programs. This can be of great benefit to the client.
