Several of our wellness modalities utilize Muscle Response Testing (MRT). MRT is a non-invasive tool used to identify imbalances in the body. The science behind it is similar to a lie detector or polygraph. In a polygraph, a person is hooked up to sensitive electrodes and asked certain questions. The person's answers generate a certain electrical response in the body, which is read and graphed by the machine, showing if the answers are true or false. In MRT, this is done on a very delicate, minute scale. The muscles of the body are also affected by this electrical state, so we can use them to show this same response, just on a more pronounced, larger scale. Any muscle will become weakened in a state of incongruence or falsehood, making resistance difficult. Conversely, muscles will remain strong and able to resist when in a state of congruence or truth. Muscle testing allows us to access important information about current state of health by asking the body on a subconscious level. We just have to know what questions to ask to get the underlying cause.
