How To Self-Test with Kinesiology

Warning: the following is for information only. Seek professional help with any medical and health condition.

Kinesiology is a powerful tool to access information from the body. The body contains information about over or under energy levels for the organs, glands, immune system, endocrine system, the brain, the nervous system, etc. The body has information about the levels of vitamins and minerals needed for optimal function. But it is difficult to talk with the body using English, Spanish, German, or Japanese.

The body has its own methods for communicating with itself. One of the most ingenious methods to access the body's language is through Applied Kinesiology. There are thousands of Applied Kinesiologists in the world. Visit, or for more information.

Professional applied kinesiologists use a muscle of the body to access information. The information you are accessing is not for fortune telling or to find out about information not relevant to the body. Muscle testing or Kinesiology is used just for retrieving data about the body and to discover the energetic balance or imbalance of the body.

Each muscle contains fibers and sensors that communicate with the central nervous system. When the muscle is pushed gently, the muscle sends information to the brain, and the brain back to the muscle in regards to the test. When using Kinesiology it is important to keep a clear, open mind and heart. Techniques using Kinesiology are only as effective as the facilitator using them. Pre-judgments, agendas, emotional drama taints the test and invalidates it. Use Kinesiology with a pure heart and mind.

When the muscle is pushed gently, usually the muscle responds with a firm lock position. But if the muscle is pushed harshly and too quickly, the muscle might respond with an unlock and will not hold to the test. The primary and secondary fibers to a muscle group will respond to a challenge by either locking in place or unlocking.

If the muscle locks it usually that means that the test is strong and valid. If the muscle unlocks and does not hold that usually means that the test is negative. (This only applies if you are not using advanced forms of formatting, stacking and pause locking).

  • First - you need to get an indicator muscle. An indicator muscles is a muscle that will be used to indicate the results of the test. For self-testing, use can use your index finger as the indicator muscle.
  • Second - you need the tester muscle. For self-testing use the middle finger as the tester muscle.
  • Third - test to see if the muscle (index finger) will lock and then unlock. For example, using the fingers on the same hand, the middle finger pushes the index finger.
  • Fourth - Test the index finger muscle by pushing it with the middle finger of the same hand. The index finger should lock (meaning not move).
  • Fifth - Now allow the index finger to relax and push again to feel an unlock muscle (meaning the index finger will move).
  • Fifth - Now, try using a simple test. Test your name. Say your name and push on the finger. It should lock the muscle.
  • Sixth - test an untruth. Say "my name is ____" and use a fictitious name. Test the muscle again. It should unlock.
  • Seventh - try doing this with several phrases. Get some practice with this.
  • Eight, muscle test some vitamins or mineral supplements. Test quantity and how often.
Muscle testing can be used for simple uses or for complex tasks in the quest for information about the body and in assisting the healing path.

Some of the opportunities that muscle testing opens up are:
  1. Finding deep hidden beliefs in the subconscious
  2. Finding emotional issues buried in the subconscious
  3. Vitamin and supplement testing
  4. Discovering muscle, ligament, lymph, organ, gland, or hormonal imbalances
  5. Verifying other techniques.

The accuracy of self-testing is dependent upon the clarity and intent of the user. Please seek professional assistance in regards to your health.
