What is Muscle Response Testing (MRT)
Muscle Testing also called Applied Kinesiology measures a natural stress response called Binary Biofeedback – the measure of the body’s response to a stimulus. It is an energetic testing method that evaluates changes in patients’ connective tissue, also known as the “ground substance” or “matrix” tissue. MRT assists doctors and practitioners in determining the underlying cause of a patient’s pain, dysfunction or disease, and the most specific and optimal form of treatment.
What Does It Mean
The basic principle of kinesiology-style muscle testing is that when there’s some stress or abnormal nervous system input to a muscle, it “weakens”. During a muscle test, a practitioner applies a force to one muscle or group of muscles, with a particular intent in mind. The muscle is then labelled “weak” or “strong” based on its ability to resist this force.
What a “strong” test means compared to a “weak” test varies between techniques and applications. For example, kinesiology-style muscle testing is used to determine the state of organs and organ systems, to evaluate nutritional status and the need for supplementation, to detect imbalances in the meridians and chakras, to discover the presence of mental or emotional stress, and to identify chemical sensitivities and “allergies”.
