Muscle testing is a kind of body biofeedback that can be used to evaluate changes in the body’s subtle energetic field. Manual muscle testing has been used for over 60 years by doctors and physical therapists to evaluate muscle function.

Brief history of Kinesis

Kinesis has its roots in the early sixties with an American chiropractor, George Goodheart, DC.
Goodheart began to use muscle testing to evaluate and correct the state of various bodily functions. He took the study of movement (kinesis) and looked for ways to correct any detected weaknesses and imbalances (applying his knowledge). He formulated Applied Kinesis, a system he made available to other chiropractors and professionals.

Then, in the early seventies, another chiropractor, John Thie, DC, systemized kinesis for the lay person, making the techniques simple and practical for anyone to learn. He wrote the book ‘Touch for Health’™, and began teaching courses to interested people. Since then the book has been translated into many languages and the system has been taught to millions of people in 50 countries.

Dr. John Thie had the vision to bring TFH to the layperson.  It was based on the work of Dr. George Goodheart - who is considered today to be the father of Applied Kinesis and the grandfather of Energy Medicine.

It was discovered that each muscle in the body relates to a specific meridian, a pathway of energy running through the body much like currents running through the electrical wiring of a house. These energy imbalances can be found through muscle testing and can be harmoniously balanced by a combination of acupressure/touch, massage, nutrition or gentle massage of the Chinese meridian system. 

The techniques of kinesis have continued to develop – they are still being taught to individuals from all walks of life and today their powerful and broad application has blossomed greatly. Many students, clients, instructors and practitioners are dealing with the subtle but numerous imbalances that lie behind all the physical, mental and emotional problems which are experienced today. Muscle testing has become a wonderful tool to receive bio-feedback.

One of the great virtues of kinesis is its versatility. Its concepts and techniques can be applied almost anywhere at anytime. They can be expanded upon and developed to suit individual needs and can be used on one-self, within the family, or in a professional situation.

What is Kinesis?

The term Kinesis means the study of the muscles and the movement of the body.  It comes from the Greek work 'kinesis', which means 'motion'.

Specialized Kinesis uses the body's muscle system as a feedback determining where blocks and imbalances are impairing physical, emotional or energetic well-being.  The same method of muscle testing can identify factors, such as nutrition or emotional stress, which may be contributing to such imbalances.  The kinesis system applies a range of techniques to restore mind-body balance or homeostasis, promoting a healthy flow of energy.

These seminars are a combination of Touch for Health, Brain Gym® and Tools of the Trade.  They present new approaches to restore our energies, accomplish our goals faster, and improve our health and self-concept, decrease stress and much more.

Each course teaches various aspects and uses of applied kiness (muscle biofeedback).  They are Touch for Health, Edu-Kinesthetics and Tools of the Trade and the Kinesis Mastery course.  Transform Your Stress by learning to integrate body and mind healing approaches.  Anyone can benefit from these courses.  This is a way to truly EMPOWER YOURSELF.
