What is muscle testing?

A simple example of how Applied Kinesiology works is if you have a kidney infection or stone, the low back muscle (trunk extensors) will become very spastic. When this occurs the hip flexors (psoas muscle) will have to be weak by a process called reciprocal inhibition. The psoas muscle is related to kidney function, therefore a weak psoas could be related to a kidney deficiency. Applied Kinesiology can also be used to determine whether specific foods and other substances may be contributing to health problems.
