Muscle testing for a piece of mind
I recently had one of my patients get in touch with me for an emergency. A few days before she went into urgent care with severe abdominal and pelvic pain. It turns out that she had a ruptured ovarian cyst. She was given an ultrasound, CT scan, blood work, a medical history and physical exam. The doctors were also concerned with her having appendicitis. Although a rebound tenderness test for appendicitis and the blood work were negative.
She came into my office with neck, low back pain and digestive tenderness. She told me what happened with her visit to urgent care the weekend before. The doctors said that they were also afraid of her having appendicitis, even though there was no rebound tenderness in her abdomen and the blood work didn’t show anything related to it.
Muscle testing in action
So I went to work and was very excited to see what I could find with using muscle testing and my Applied Kinesiology knowledge.
- Through her acupuncture meridian system, I found that stomach was the weakest link in her body.
- Her right gluteus medius muscle was weak which is related to the ovaries (this was the side of the ovarian cyst)
- The Quadratus Lumborum muscles (related to the appendix) were both strong. From what I have been taught over the years I know that they might be hypertonic, or too strong, which can still be a signal of appendicitis. I checked them against their acupuncture meridian sedation point (LI2) and they weakened. This validated even more to me that she didn’t have appendicitis.
- All weak muscles went strong when I had her touch her stomach alarm point (CV12). This showed me what I needed to focus on to help her. It would be the stomach.
- There was also emotional involvement with the stomach. We traced out the stomach emotions with muscle testing and fond out what age they were from.
After we looked at what needed to be fixed we did the treatment. I assessed and adjusted T5 and C5 for stomach, bilateral lateral talus for stomach, C1 posterior for stomach. We also worked on her pelvic alignment (category II), L5, and bilateral carpals and acromio-clavicular joints for the emotions.
I also recommended some supplements to nourish her digestive system and balance her hormonal system. This will help her body to naturally break down xenoestrogens on it’s own. Xenoestrogens are thought to cause ovarian cysts.
With the validation of the negative lab work and rebound tenderness test, I assured the patient that my personal opinion was that she didn’t have appendicitis. (please only deal with a case like this if you are very experienced)
We rechecked the involved muscles and emotions and they were balanced. She felt much better except for a slight pulling in her neck which we both thought just needed a day to relax.
She felt very relieved that I didn’t think she had appendicitis and that I was helping her the ovarian cyst problem. I felt very confident that I did the best I could for her.
Do you have any great stories about how you or a professional that you were working with helped you with muscle testing?
