Muscle Response Testing
Muscle response testing (MRT) is a technique based on the belief that certain muscles are connected to organs and glands and specific muscle weakness can indicate internal issues such as nerve damage, reduced blood supply, chemical imbalances and other organ or gland issues.
There are multiple points on the body used to get feedback from the body. For example, placing my finger in the hollow of the client's right cheek while applying pressure to the outstretched arm, I can determine whether or not potassium is an active point. MRT is not used to make a diagnosis. Instead, it is used, along with other modalities, to determine which areas of the body need support.
