TESTING PROCEDURES

What is Bio feedback analysis?

Biofeedback Analysis Testing is a viable, efficient and effective tool for determining the body's needs. Biofeedback Analysis is currently being used by many healing disciplines: medical doctors, acupuncturists, chiropractors, naturopaths, osteopaths, holistic dentists, veterinarians and other practitioners.

In fact many books have been written on Biofeedback Analysis including one written in 1995 by David R. Hawkins, MD and Psychiatrist. He previously co-authored a book on Orthomolecular Psychiatry with Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling.

Who developed Bio Feedback Analysis?

Muscle testing was developed in 1964 by Dr.George Goodheart, DC, a Chiropractor. He developed a diagnostic system called Applied Kinesiology, which allowed muscles to be tested for clinical and diagnostic purposes, not just to determine muscle strength. Applied Kinesiology was derived from the ancient art of Acupuncture, which was developed by the Chinese between 3000 and 2500 BC.

How is it done?

The practitioner gently pushes down on the patient's extended arm which is resisting the downward pressure. If we irritate the nervous system for a second, it will cause a temporary short circuit causing the testing arm to momentarily go weak. We can irritate the nervous system by touching a sensitive area on the body, a weakened reflex, or acupuncture point

How does it work?

Doctors on the cutting edge of alternative natural therapies are using the muscle test as a real-time indicator of altered physiological function. This highly significant study measures the effect of cognitive factors on muscle strength and demonstrates the validity of the muscle test.

When our body's energy system processes a stimulus, it is our muscle response that we will pay attention to for an indicator to measure a response, reaction or state of being in the body/mind.

When the body/mind's bio computer is momentarily focused on an irritation or imbalance in its system, our muscles seem to momentarily weaken or contract. This is not noticed in our everyday lives. However, if we were to test the strength of a muscle with Biofeedback Analysis testing, we would notice a momentary weakness. It is almost as if the nervous system short-circuits the muscle for a second. It is this momentary weakness that gives us our information.
