Muscle Testing & Pulsing
Muscle testing is commonly referred to as ‘kinesiology.’ Kinesiology is defined by Webster as: “the study of the principles of mechanics and anatomy in relation to human motion.” It is an assessment of the strength or weakness of a muscle. It is not, however, synonymous with muscle testing as it is being looked upon and utilized in this article. Muscle testing is a tool extraordinaire for assessing any other component of (and in) the body, however minute and inaccessible. It makes it possible to communicate with the subconscience, and for that matter, with anything or anybody throughout the universe, and it is the oldest, immediate and most accurate lie detector.
Combining muscle testing with questions whose answer is a simple 'yes' or 'no' is referred to as limbic muscle testing and it serves as a bridge between the conscious and the subconscious. It is a ‘left-brain’ tool for ‘right-brain’ application, and it is considered by many practitioners to be an art form. Some learn to muscle-test almost immediately, while others require hours of practice to master it. Muscle testing enables everyone, especially those with no extra sensory (ESP) gifts to enter the metaphysical realm of healing at will. It also allows us to achieve what Quantum Jumping achieves without the need to go into meditation or time-consuming visualization, by providing immediate answers to any ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ questions. It is a practiced mechanical skill that can be mastered by anyone, regardless of age, gender or level of education, and it could (and should) be taught to children as early as kindergarten or pre-school, enabling them from a tender age to determine what is harmful for them and what is in their highest and best interest.
Limbic muscle testing refers to muscle testing while asking any question to which there is a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ answer. In the universe there is no ‘true’ or ‘false.’ There is only ‘what is’ and ‘what isn’t.’ For metaphysical purposes this method is the most important one. It is also used to determine if a strong arm means a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ in the event that the polarity is reversed, regardless of what form of muscle testing is being used. It allows a practitioner to verify which technique to use, what supplements or medications to prescribe and pre-determine what side-effects they may have and on which organ. It also allows acupuncturists to determine needle placements so they can maximize the treatment by finding the best points to insert the needles, while using the least amount of needles. Engineers and researchers can use limbic muscle testing to test the validity of hypotheses, formulae or designs before spending time or money on them. This is referred to as ‘right-brain’ research. It is also an effective tool in 'pulsing.'
Pulsing is an extension of muscle testing. It is an indispensable tool. Although it has been around since the early 60's it is not widely used. It is the assessment of an internal electrical charge, much like testing how a battery 'holds charge' and can stand up to a load. In healing it is used to assess anything we wish to heal before and after the treatment. At present, there are no devices of any kind, mechanical or electrical, that can replace pulsing. Pulsing was used initially to determine dosage; how many pills or supplement a person should take, a practice that was outlawed by many States. Pulsing can be done in two ways: mechanically, while making physical contact with a patient, or by way of limbic testing. Both methods involve counting. When testing mechanically, any accessible muscle can be used. It is a quick push-and-release while the muscle remains contracted, and it takes time to master it.
With limbic muscle testing pulsing is a rapid series of ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers to counting. There is no need to have physical contact with the patient, so straight finger or one of the O-ring methods are most commonly used. Straight arm, Native American and pendulum testing are too slow. For example, asking ‘what is the pulse (or electrical rhythm) of the heart?’ and continuing with asking is it: one? two? three? and so on while muscle testing. The answer will continue to be ‘no’ until the correct number will be reached, at which time the answer will be a ‘yes.’
Everything in the body has its own normal pulse (‘rhythm’). The numerical values (pulses) that correspond to the normal electrical rhythms are:
• Teeth 17
• Tip of the tongue 16
• Cerebellum 15
• Heart 12
• Arches of the feet 12
• Base of the tongue 10
• All other organs 10
• All other parts of the body (including skin, bones, joints, connective tissues and heartbeat) 10
• All systems in the body (absorption, aura, blood quality, blood pressure, bone marrow, chakras, circulatory, digestion, elimination, energy, endocrine, fat, immune, limbic, lymphatic, reproductive, respiratory, urogenital) 10
Pulsing and limbic testing make symptom survey forms un-necessary and obsolete. They enable us to match and assess accurately ‘on the spot’ each drug, nutritional supplement, food, jewelry, chemicals, or anything else the body is exposed to, be it of energy, animal, vegetable or mineral origin. Pulsing enables us to instantly identify viruses, bacteria and irregular cells (tumors, cancers) by determining their signature vibration. It also allows us to assess and determine how far from power-lines or transformers it is safe to live, and it is an effective tool for evaluating books or spiritual levels. The uses of pulsing are endless and they extend far beyond healing.
Muscle testing is based on three observations: (1) muscles instantly become weak when the body is exposed to harmful stimuli, and that substances or stimuli that are beneficial to the body made the muscles stronger, (2) the strength or weakness of every muscle is linked to the health or pathology of a specific organ, and (3) each individual muscle is associated with an acupuncture meridian.
There are four basic forms of muscle testing. They are:
1. Straight-arm testing
2. Straight-finger testing
3. O-Ring testing
4. Native American testing
Straight-arm testing (Figure 1) is considered the classic method for muscle testing. Whether standing, sitting or lying, the patient is asked to hold one arm up in front him (or her) at 90 degrees to the body as the practitioner places his (or her) palm on the patient’s forearm. To test, the practitioner pushes the arm lightly as the patient resists. When a patient is unable to raise the arm, the practitioner should use one of the other methods.

Straight-finger testing (Figure 2): It is the most advanced of the muscle testing methods. The testing is done by extending an index finger and keeping it rigid while placing the pad of the middle finger of the same hand on top of the nail of the index finger and pushing down. With normal polarity, when the index finger remains straight, it means ‘yes.’ If the finger weakens or bends it means ‘no.’
Figure 2: Straight-finger muscle testing
O-Ring testing (Figures 3a and 3b) is accomplished by placing the thumb and index finger (or any other finger on the same hand) together firmly and inserting the other thumb or index finger into the ‘O,’ and pushing outward, or using any other finger as if trying to break through the ‘O.’ With normal polarity, a strong contact means ‘yes.’ This is a useful method for self-testing, or for any form of limbic testing, but it requires the use of both hands at the same time.

A variation of this test (Figure 3b) requires the patient to make the ‘O’ ring, while the practitioner holds the thumb and little finger (or index finger) and tries to pry them apart, while asking ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions or testing the validity of statements.

Native American testing (Figure 4) is the simplest of all the tests, and the most difficult to slant or bias, as it ‘ignores’ the ego. The test is more responsive while standing facing north, but it can be done facing in any direction. With normal polarity, the body leans forward with a ‘yes’ and backward with a ‘no.’

Pendulum testing (Figure 5) is used when the tester has no muscle testing skill. Anything that sways can serve as a pendulum. It is just as true, but a bit slower. Determining ‘yes’ and ‘no’ follows the same procedure as the other methods: Show me a ‘yes’ and Show me a ‘no’.

We can test ourselves or get ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers to any question we want to ask, using any of the muscle testing methods or pendulum that were discussed above. It also makes it possible for healers to evaluate patients in absentia, in as much depth as their ‘yes’ or ‘no’ question-asking ability allows them to go, all the way down to the most minute sub-cellular structures or particles, regardless of where the patient might be at that time.
