The human nervous system is designed to self-regulate and adapt to change. When we cannot adapt efficiently, the muscles will reflect the stress in the central nervous system. This stress creates specific muscle patterns that kinesiologists can assess using muscle monitoring techniques.
The easiest way to understand this process is to think of the signals between the brain and the body as feedback loops. As the brain adapts to the changes in the muscle systems, the muscles send signals to alert the brain that the changes have taken place.
Kinesiology is the science of using muscle monitoring to assess the overall health of specific systems in the body and provide a way to correct any imbalances. By using muscles as a monitor for unlocking or locking, kinesiology provides a communication tool that allows us to detect areas in our bodies that may not be functioning properly due to physical injuries, emotional stress, improper nutrition, and learning problems. Once these imbalances are detected, the body system can be balanced and result in an improvement in a person’s overall health and performance.
Touch for Health uses the muscles as a biofeedback mechanism. This is a great tool that works at the connection between body and mind; using the electromagnetic energy system called meridians (electrical pathways). These energy systems maintain balance and harmony within the body, using acupressure, touch and massage.
This technique gives you immediate feedback to confirm the corrections have been effective.
