Kinesiology is a biofeedback process using muscle testing. This involves a muscle being held strong by the patient against resistance applied by the practitioner. Under normal circumstances the muscle can be held easily. If a person cannot hold the strength of their muscle against mild resistance when certain pulses, muscles or trigger points are checked , this indicates that the persons’ system has broken down and is not under the full control of your neurophysiological system. The application is incredibly simple, yet the neuroscience is complex. Kinesiology integrates the principles of modern health science with alterative and traditional medicines.
Neurolink ( Neurological Integration System NIS) The brain governs the optimum functioning of the body through its neurological circuitry and is constantly receiving information from every part of the body and sending back messages many times per second. Thus every cell, muscle, organ, gland, nerve, etc is constantly being monitored. When these circuits break down the brain no longer has full control and communication with the a particular area of function has broken down. The brain knows about the symptoms that arise due to this break down but no longer can correct it. Neurolink facilitates the brain to acknowledge the circuitry that has broken down so it can repair and restore the function associated with that circuit. This is how Kinesiology works from one perspective.
How does the brain reset the circuitry? When you close your eyes and someone gently touches your arm for instance or pulls a tiny hair on the head, you can tell them exactly where the body was touched. When the skin is touched, merkels tactile disks associated with slow adapting receptors are stimulated. These mediate light touch sensations (sterognosis) which project centrally via the spino-thalamic tracts and the dorsal column medial lemniscus pathway (DCML). This neuropathway is directly associated with a specific area of the brain called the Post Cental Gyrus (PCG) which allows you to relate exactly to that sensation and its origin.
Secondly, when the skin is touched meissners corpuscles mediate fine discriminative tactile stimulation. These are fast acting receptors and when stimulated they project sensation via the DCML to the PCG. Also Pacinan corpuscles found in the dermis of the skin respond to pressure and touch and recognise the ostion of body parts in space (statognosis). which is mediated via the DCML to the PCG. This shows how important the PCG is as the message centre of the brain. (to be continued)
