Self Muscle Testing Technique that People Ask About

1. What is Kinesiology?

The most common interpretation of Kinesiology is called muscle testing, the usage of your own energy in your electrical system and that flows throughout our bodies and muscles.  The Self-muscle testing Technique is becoming a big question about what it is and how to use it.

I will walk you through kinesiology step by set.  My understanding goes back many years before I even came across kinesiology as a tool for better health.

As children we thought it was magical, my mother took a sewing needle and threaded it. Placing the needle in a downward position over the palm of her hand, then she asked a question that would respond to a simple yes or no. If the question was yes this type of pendulum would make a circular motion. If the answer was no it would sway back and forth.

We thought she was making the needle move until we tested it out for ourselves. Magically we would get answers.  As a child, we knew what the answer was. Then we would make a negative statement and guess what the pendulum would sway back and forth, we thought this was neat.

2 What is Kinesiology used for?

If I knew that I know today that could have changed a whole lot of things for me. But alas it wasn’t to be. As I came across this technique many years later it was very easy for me to learn and apply it to my life.

In my most recent post, I covered my learning experiences in Acupuncture, Pressurepunture, and EFT. All these methods are based on our Electrical System. Through meridians that are thought out our bodies and by removing the blockage that has been caused by sickness mentally and physically, within our nervous system, we can return to a much healthier and happier state of mind and body.

Through self-muscle testing, we can pinpoint where the problem lies and identify it internally and externally. Why it sounds too easy to be true? Why do we not know about this?. It’s a very easy answer. We have no understanding of our bodies and how our system is built.

The most incredible piece of machinery ever to be created is the human body and its capacity to heal itself. Then if this is true, why are we in the state health we are in today? These are questions that I have asked myself over and over again.

There is no easy answer only through understanding we can make conclusions. Through Muscel testing,  I have come to the point in my life that, my intellectual growth has grown spiritually, mentally and physically. Through muscle testing, we can ask any question and get an answer and I literally mean anything and everything!

3. How is Kinesiology used? w is

My earlier experiences with muscle testing were awkward, and it is very understandable in the beginning to come to the conclusion that it really does work, but it takes practice. There are two techniques that will give you a good idea your own capacity in learning Kinesiology.

1. The arm test; If you’ve ever been to a chiropractor or holistic physician experienced in muscle testing, you’ve experienced kinesiology. The doctor tells you to stick out your arm and resist his pressure. It feels like he is trying to push your arm down after he has told you not to let him do it. Everything is going fine, and then all of a sudden he presses and your arm falls down like a floppy fish no matter how hard you try to keep it up. That is using kinesiology.

Simply stated, the body has within it and surrounding it an electrical network or grid. If anything impacts your electrical system that does not maintain or enhance your health and your body’s balance, your muscles, when having physical pressure applied, are unable to hold their strength. (Muscle power is directly linked to the balance of the electrical system.) In other words, if pressure is applied to an individual’s extended arm while his body’s electrical system is being adversely affected, the muscles will weaken and the arm will not be able to resist the pressure.

The circuits of the electrical system are overloaded or have short-circuited, causing a weakening of that system. However, if pressure is applied while his electrical system is being positively affected, the circuits remain strong, balanced and capable of fully functioning throughout the body. The muscles will remain strong, the person will easily resist and the arm will hold its position.

2 The swaying of the body; which is the easiest one to learn on your own at home, suggests that your thoughts and emotions produce a certain response in your nervous system, affecting your motor response (movement of your body).

Standing you can us something that you know is not good for you. Tap your breastplate several times before continuing, then place an object or substance to your chest using both hands and ask “is this object or substance is good for me.” Whatever you use, name the object or substance. For example, use simple table salt or the sugar bowl. And ask “is this salt or sugar good for me?” Your body will respond with a slit swaying motion backward or forwards. Backward, is a no and forwards, is a yes.

This technique is very easy to perform and can be used daily. This was the simplest form for me when I started kinesiology. When I need a quick answer and I am in public I go naturally to this form of kinesiology. Sometimes even without thinking about it, I will get an answer. Just by listening to others I am not constantly aware that as I follow the conversation I will be able to detect a true statement or a false statement.

As we become more and more aware of our body. You will hear things like your very intuitive or assertive. Knowing a truth when we hear it becomes a part of you again, we have this from the day we were born we are only going back and learning it all over again.

The problem in today’s world we get bogged down with precepts and concepts of the world that we learned on a daily bases. “The Dr. said this, so it has to be true”! We become confused, within we already know that there is something wrong. I have heard this over and over again. You were told that this is the problem and within you feel that it isn’t, but he or she is the Dr. So it has to be true.

Kinesiology: The Tool for Testing

Kinesiology is another word for muscle testing. Kinesiology is simple. Anybody can do it because it uses your electrical system and your muscles. If you are alive, you have these two things. I know that sounds smart-mouthed of me, but I’ve learned that sometimes people refuse to believe that anything can be so simple. So they create a mental block—only “sensitive types” can do this, or only women can do it. It’s just not true. Kinesiology happens to be one of those simple things in life just waiting around to be learned and used by everyone.

This electrical/muscular relationship is a natural part of the human system. It is not mystical or magical. Kinesiology is the established method for reading the body’s balance through the balance of the electrical system at any given moment.

When working in a co-creative partnership, nature answers your yes/no questions by projecting positive energy or negative energy—whichever is appropriate—into the electrical circuit that you have created by your fingers especially for the kinesiology testing. The “yes” or “no” that nature projects register in this one electrical connection and not throughout your entire electrical system. The special connection created by your fingers allows you to use the kinesiology technique without adversely impacting your electrical system or your body’s balance. Only one circuit is being used, and this circuit is artificially created by you for the testing and is not a part of the normal function of the electrical system throughout your body. The answer you are able to discern through the testing is from nature. It is not an answer that has been concocted by you.

If you have ever experienced muscle testing, you probably participated in the above-described, two-person operation. You provided the extended arm, and the other person provided the pressure. Although efficient, this can sometimes be cumbersome when you want to test something on your own. Arm pumpers have the nasty habit of disappearing right when you need them most.

Kinesiology Self-Testing Steps

1. THE CIRCUIT FINGERS. If you are right-handed: Place your left- hand palm up. Connect the tip of your left thumb with the tip of the left little finger (not your index finger). If you are left-handed: Place your right- hand palm up. Connect the tip of your right thumb with the tip of your right little finger. By connecting your thumb and little finger, you have closed an electrical circuit in your hand, and it is this circuit you will use for testing.

Before going on, look at the position you have just formed with your hand. If your thumb is touching the tip of your index or first finger, laugh at yourself for not being able to follow directions, and change the position to touch the tip of the thumb with the tip of the little or fourth finger. Most likely this will not feel at all comfortable to you. If you are feeling a weird sense of awkwardness, you’ve got the first step of the test position! In time, the hand and fingers will adjust to being put in this position and it will feel fine.

Circuit fingers can touch tip to tip, finger pad to finger pad or thumb resting on top of the little finger’s nail. Women with long nails need not impale themselves.

2. THE TEST FINGERS. To test the circuit (the means by which you will apply pressure to yourself), place the thumb and index finger of your other hand inside the circle you have created by connecting your thumb and little finger. The thumb and index finger should be right under your thumb and your little finger, touching them. Don’t try to make a circle with your test fingers. They are just placed inside the circuit fingers that do form a circle. It will look as if the circuit fingers are resting on the test fingers.

3. POSITIVE RESPONSE. Keeping this position, ask yourself a yes/no question in which you already know the answer to be yes. (“Is my name _____?”) Once you’ve asked the question, press your circuit fingers together, keeping the tip-to-tip position. Using the same amount of pressure, try to pull apart the circuit fingers with your test fingers. Press the lower thumb against the upper thumb, and the lower index finger against the upper little finger.

The action of your test fingers will look like scissors separating as you apply pressure to your circuit fingers. The motion of the test fingers is horizontal. Don’t try to pull your test fingers vertically up through your circuit fingers. This action sometimes works but it is not as reliable as the horizontal scissors action.

The circuit position described in step 1 corresponds to the position you take when you stick your arm out for the physician. The testing position in step 2 is in place of the physician or another convenient arm pumper. After you ask the yes/no question and you press your circuit fingers tip-to-tip, that is equal to the doctor saying, “Resist my pressure.” Your circuit fingers now correspond to your outstretched, stiffened arm. Trying to pull apart those fingers with your testing fingers is equal to the doctor pressing down on your arm.

If the answer to the question is positive (if your name is what you think it is!), you will not be able to easily push apart the circuit fingers. The electrical circuit will hold, your muscles will maintain their strength, and your circuit fingers will not separate. You will feel the strength in that circuit.

IMPORTANT: Be sure the amount of pressure holding the circuit fingers together is equal to the amount of your testing fingers pressing against them. Also, don’t use a pumping action in your test fingers when applying pressure to your circuit fingers. Use an equal, steady and continuous pressure.

Play with this a bit. Ask a few more yes/no questions that have positive answers. Now, I know it is going to seem that if you already know the answer to be “yes,” you are probably “throwing” the test. That’s reasonable, but for the time being, until you get a feeling for what the positive response feels like, you’re going to need to deliberately ask yourself questions with positive answers.

While asking questions, if you are having trouble sensing the strength of the circuit, apply a little more pressure. Or consider that you may be applying too much pressure and pull back some. You don’t have to break or strain your fingers for this; just use enough pressure to make them feel alive, connected and alert.

4. NEGATIVE RESPONSE. Once you have a clear sense of the positive response, ask yourself a question that has a negative answer. Again press your circuit fingers together and, using equal pressure, press against the circuit fingers with the test fingers. This time the electrical circuit will break and the circuit fingers will weaken and separate. Because the electrical circuit is broken, the muscles in the circuit fingers do not have the power to easily hold the fingers together. In a positive state the electrical circuit holds, and the muscles have the power to keep the two fingers together.

How much your circuit fingers separate depends on your personal style. Some people’s fingers separate a lot. Other’s barely separate at all. Mine separate about a quarter of an inch. Some people’s fingers won’t separate at all, but they’ll definitely feel the fingers weaken when pressure is applied during a “no” answer. Give yourself time and let your personal style develop naturally.

Also, if you are having a little trouble feeling anything, do your testing with your forearms resting in your lap. This way you won’t be using your muscles to hold up your arms while trying to test.

Play with negative questions a bit, and then return to positive questions. Get a good feeling for the strength between your circuit fingers when your electrical system is balanced and the weakness when it is short-circuited or imbalanced. You can even ask yourself (your own system) for a positive response and then, after testing, ask for a negative response. (“Give me a positive response.” Test. “Give me a negative response.” Test.) You will feel a positive strength and the negative weakness. In the beginning, you may feel only a slight difference between the two. With practice, that difference will become more pronounced. For now, it is just a matter of trusting what you have learned; and practicing.

Don’t forget the overall concept behind kinesiology. What enhances our body, mind, and soul makes us strong. Together, our body, mind, and soul create an environment that, when balanced, is strong and solid. If something enters that environment and challenges the balance, the environment is weakened. That strength or weakness first registers in the electrical system, and it can be discerned through the muscle-testing technique; kinesiology.

Kinesiology Tips

If you are having trouble feeling a positive and negative response in the circuit fingers, try switching hands; the circuit fingers become the test fingers and vice versa. Most people who are right-handed have this particular electrical circuitry that is used in kinesiology in their left hand. Left-handers generally have the circuitry in their right hand. But sometimes a right-hander has the circuitry in the right hand and a left-hander has it in the left hand. You may be one of those people. If you are ambidextrous, choose the circuit hand that gives you the clearest responses. Before deciding which to use, give yourself a couple of weeks of testing using one hand as the circuit hand to get a good feel for its responses before trying the other hand.

Sometimes I meet people who are trying to learn kinesiology and are not having much luck. They have gotten frustrated, decided this isn’t for them, and have gone on to try to learn another means of testing. Well, I’ll listen to them explain what they did, and before they know it, I’ve verbally tricked them with a couple of suggestions about their testing, which they try, and they begin feeling kinesiology for the first time—a strong “yes” and a clear “no.” The problem wasn’t kinesiology. Everyone, as I have said, has an electrical system. The problem was that they wanted to learn it so much that they became overly anxious and tense—they blocked.

If you’re still not getting a satisfactory “yes” and “no” after several weeks of trying, ask nature to help you learn and develop kinesiology. In fact, it can help you unjam the logs around this issue. Simply direct your focus to nature (nature intelligence) and state that you would like it to help you learn to do kinesiology testing. Also, state that you would like to feel a clear positive and negative response in your testing. Then walk away from trying to test for the rest of the day and return to it in a day or two. Read the kinesiology steps and practice the testing. This time, pay attention to any intuitive “hits” you might receive about the testing and play with the information. Now you’ll have success with feeling “yes” and “no.”


Kinesiology is the singular most important tool that I have learned. Through this have been able to detect and pinpoint general health problems, within my Family and the common denominator, that rules the three of us.

As we progress into my story with Melissa and Jessy it will become very evident why.

  1. Dear Linda
    A couple of days ago I read your post about kinesiology and again and again, came back to what I’ve read in my thoughts and asked myself the only question “Is it really so easy and simple?”
    One well known modern philosopher said we humans have become like beggars sitting on the box of gold. Almost everyone, in one or another period of life, is begging doctors for health, while, everyone has inside him a fine-tuned mechanism of self-healing.
    We know that inside us we have a subconscious mind. They say, our subconscious mind keep all the knowledge both of humanity and an individual, but only a few can get there and get the right answers. Your muscle testing tool sounds like an instrument allowing to knock the door of our subconscious mind. And what is the most wonderful thing, it is so simple and everyone can elaborate it.
    When I delved into your understanding of kinesiology, the intricate dances of voodoo and shamans suddenly got a new meaning for me. Through movements of the body, they have been connecting to the reservoir of eternal knowledge and get the answers to the right questions.
    Thank you so much for sharing this knowledge, the knowledge that guided you through this not so easy life, for reminding everyone the better way to deal with any issues in our life.

    Wishing you all the best


    1. Makhsud, thank you, I am honored and yes it is just that simple the step by step guide to muscle testing it is a free download. I have no email sign up for know just click the ebook and it will take you to the download page.

      Someone told me that I should have a small charge on the ebook, but it is a gift that we all have that come into this world and it is not mine to sell. I hope you downloaded it.

      With having the tool you will be able to test it yourself and at the end of the book, there is a very special person that I had her permission to add to the book on how she tested the tool. We have become very good friends. Let me know how you do.

      Use the swaying technic it is the easiest to learn. With the arm, you can test it out on a family member. Then move on to the fingers this is much more comfortable for men. My brother is an acupuncturist and uses the pendulum in his practice.

      always a better way Linda

  2. I love your piece on kinesiology. I will definitely test it on myself, and my family members. I like what you have to say and it makes sense. Thank you for sharing this information.

    1. For me Pablo it is the most important tool helps us to navigate through life and health problems. It can be applied to anything and everything. It helps to find an answer that seems to be complex but really isn’t. With just a simple yes or no.

      The swaying technic is the easiest to learn I use this in my everyday life.I can take it with me anywhere I use it in the supermarket, health food store, pharmacy. If I am indecisive about something I just ask.

      Always a better way

  3. Good afternoon Linda,

    All the things you write about are so much better than going to the doctor and getting a pill, chemical stuff, for the ailment and thinking, that’s it, now it is fixed.
    We should go back to nature, eat what nature provides for us and stay away from man made foods as much as possible.
    My mother was diagnosed with cancer in 1972, after her treatment and meanwhile reading about natural alternatives she prescribed for herself, what a willpower, to only eat Quark= like cottage cheese and red beet powder which came from Germany as it was not available in Holland. This she did for a whole year giving her body time to heal itself. Afterward, she did not eat man made food anymore and if she doubted she would use a pendulum to see if it were allowed for her to eat. She died in 1997 but not from cancer.

    Sending you best wishes,


    1. Thank you so much Taetske for sharing with us your mother’s Storie. My mother was also a very strong person. I think it is important that we share our stories by doing so we will help other to take those steps that are needed to return to Mother Nature. Some of these remedies come from our mother’s. Know they call them old wives tails. Modern medicine has removed itself from humanity and has become a money market.

      I really like what you said about your mother using the pendulum as a means for testing. The swaying method is the same as the Pendulum and you can take it anywhere you go.

      For example, if you were in a super Market and there is a product you are not quite sure would be good for you or if it organic as the label says it is, you can test it yourself and know for a certainty that it is an organic product and know if it is good for you to consume.

      Because we are not all made from the same cloth. My most recent post is on this subject Sensitivities I wish you all the best

      Always a better way

  4. I did enjoy your post knowing about Kinesiology; it was interesting to read about how our body energy works in our muscles. I tried to do the kinesiology self-testing steps but it did not work, but I guess because I did not understand the directions very well. Anyway, I think you did a good job speaking about kinesiology.

    1. Hi, Darmendra self testing takes a bit to accomplish. The swaying motion is the easiest to apply when you first get started, this is what I used when I started, but also I find that the swaying technique is the handiest to apply when your out and about at grocery store or shopping sometime we can’t quiet make up our minds to make the best buy.

      Know in today’s world there is a lot of talk about foods and supplements that are healthy for you and your just getting started, not knowing were to start because there are so many brands to choose from. We rely on others to lead the way and what working for them. What works for you not necessarily works the same for another until we know and understand what works for us, this technique will help to weed out the ones not applicable to you personally and find the ones that do work for you.

      sending blessing your way
