It has been found that if a patient touches an area of dysfunction on the body, an indicator muscle that previously tested strong may suddenly weaken to challenge. This is called therapy localization in Applied Kinesiology. Dr. Lipat has found this an informative means of interacting with a patient’s body. For instance, through Nutrition Response Testing, Dr. Lipat contacts specific neurological reflexes to explore underlying stress or dysfunction.
Muscle testing not only accesses the physiology of the body, but also accesses the physiology of emotions, as with NeuroEmotional Technique. For example, muscles that initially test strong in the clear will test as weaker when saying a non-congruent statement (such as Grace saying, “My name is Joe”). This dynamic has been scientifically validated.
