“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of consciousness that created them.”

What is Muscle Testing?

Muscle testing is a form of natural biofeedback and describes the examination of muscles to identify imbalances in the body’s structural, chemical, emotional, or energy fields. It can provide a variety of answers about the body’s priority healing needs and help evaluate energy changes brought about by a broad spectrum of therapeutic procedures.

How does it work?

Muscle testing is a natural feedback system using an indicator muscle, which supplies information via nerve pathways and the meridian system.

Your muscles and your nerves work together, so when you have an upsetting emotion, it causes a change in your muscles as well. The muscles tend to become firmer with positive thoughts or emotions and somewhat weaker with negative thoughts or emotions. It is not that the muscles are weak at such times, just that the electricity moving through the nerves gets interrupted so that the muscle momentarily cannot operate at its best.

Muscle Testing bypasses the conscious mind with all its stories and deceptions and addresses factors in the subconscious, body, and soul.

My approach is to:

  • Address your soul and deepest wisdom

  • Ask a question or make a statement

  • Test your body by allowing it to move forward (for a yes answer) or backward (for a no answer) 

By addressing the soul and deepest wisdom, I work with the mind, body, and soul simultaneously and therefore get accurate answers. This approach makes the treatment as authentic as possible.

I find the following method, the tilting method, reliable and self-empowering:


  • You will stand up straight, relaxed and if possible, face north

  • You say to yourself "Yes goes forward and no goes backward". Do this several times.

  • Then say: “From my soul and deepest wisdom, give me a yes.”

  • If you don’t have any energy blocks, you will move forward. It would feel if something pulls you. 

  • Just allow your body to move, it does not require any effort from you.

  • Repeat with no. Your body will move back without any effort from you.

  • If anything else happens, it means there are energy blocks or deception or reversals or limiting beliefs. 
    I will help you through that.

If on a rare occasion, you have great trouble muscle testing, I can substitute muscle test for you - with your consent - so we can proceed with the healing procedure.

You, as a client, will determine which of these alternatives works best for you or whether to even use this approach.

How can Muscle Testing help me? 

Muscle testing is not a lie detector test.  Information retrieved through this method may or may not have a basis in fact.  What is accessed by this method is how your experience is structurally stored in your body and in your unconscious limbic brain.  The unconscious mind does not use rational, arithmetic logic.  It uses metaphorical, poetic logic.  Therefore, the information acquired through muscle testing is NOT for the purpose of discovering factual data.  Clients are strongly encouraged and instructed not to use in it that fashion. 


Rather, the purpose of this technique is to enable you to listen to and act on your internal wisdom, thereby enhancing present functioning and enjoyment of life.  It also serves the function of enabling you to direct your own process, thereby reducing the incidence of undue influence or leading by the practitioner.


  • Muscle testing accesses information that is often not available to the conscious mind.

  • This provides more accurate answers to questions and can give us a deeper understanding of your problem and where it originated.

  • It can take you on a wonderful path of self-discovery.

  • You can use this technique to identify and correct energy blockages within the body.

  • It is a great self-empowerment technique and "convincer" - showing you how you can control your body and mind.

  • It enables you to direct your own process, thereby reducing the incidence of undue influence or leading by a practitioner.
