Did you know that with muscle testing you can pose questions to the body and the body can answer? Muscle Response Testing (MRT)/Kinesiology is an assessment technique which enables the physician to localize areas of the body that are operating less-than optimally. MRT is practiced not only by chiropractic physicians and other “alternative” heath care providers, but also by medical (allopathic) physicians. MRT assess for disruptions in optimal body function by the utilizing the fact that muscle turns on and off. Dr. Frank utilizes MRT to further assess your health from another facet/set of lenses. (MRT) is performed as part of an individual’s overall assessment.
Muscle Response Testing (MRT) is utilized for the assessment of health issues such as nutritional deficiencies, environmental sensitivities, & food allergies. MRT has been successful in helping those both with immediate reactions to foods (IgE), as well as those that have developed chronic sensitivities (IgA, IgG). MRT is also utilized during sessions where emotional issues /triggers are addressed.
How is MRT performed?
The practitioners selects a muscle to be used for the assessment. The muscle can either be strong or weak; what is being assessed for is a change in the tone of the muscles. If the patient’s muscle strength is able to resist that of the physician’s pressure, we considerate it to be strong or “locked” indicating an affirmative response. When muscles give way to pressure they are considered weak or “unlocked” and indicate a problem/fault. Conversely if a muscle is weak, locating the fault “restores the circuitry” and the once weak muscle “turn on” and becomes locked/strong. Treatment is then applied to the fault, and a MMT reassessment is then performed.
There is considerable evidence about the reliability and validity of MMT as an examination tool. Even the American Medical Association has accepted MMT as a reliable tool and advocates its use for the evaluation of disability impairments.
What is NAET?
NAET, a non-invasive, drug free, natural solution to alleviate allergies of all types and intensities using a blend of selective energy balancing, testing and treatment procedures from acupuncture/acupressure, allopathy, chiropractic, nutritional, and kinesiological disciplines of medicine.
One allergen, such as egg, wheat, pollen, etc., is treated at a time. If you are not severely immune deficient, you may need just one treatment to desensitize one allergen. A person with mild to moderate number of allergies may take about 15-20 office visits to desensitize 15-20 food and environmental allergens.
