World of Kinesiology - and you as a practitioner of Specialized Kinesiology - I think with this you will have a great tool [Temporal Sphenoidal Diagnosis] you can put in your backpack.
In this article I put emphasis on the relationship between the muscles we test and the Temporal Sphenoidal Reflex Points, as their correlation lies in the organ they relate to. Well, this may or may not of a surprise. Now imagine how your work can improve when you have this knowledge at your disposal. I say it is huge.
Touch for HealthTouch for Health was introduced by John F. Thie as a 'First Aid Tool for the non-chiropractic'. In it you are tought various techniques to quickly bring Mind Body Spirit back into homeostasis. Besides the 14/42 manual muscle tests - related to 12 main acu meridians and 2 of the extra meridains - one is tought to balance these muscle tests using neuro lymphatic points, neuro vascular points, specific holding / massaging points on the related acu meridians, and more.
Temporal Sphenoidal Reflex PointsM.B. DeJarnette and M.L. Rees wrote about the Temporal Spenoidal Line in their development of 'Temporal Spenoidal Diagnosis'. This method shows the relations one can make with dedicated parts on the spine and the innervated organs with that specific part of the spine. With 'Bloodless surgery' - a nice term for elaviating stress making contact with the organs/reflex areas that are in play - used in Chiropractic Manipulative Reflex Technique (CMRT) the practitioner releases the stress in the indicated areas.
Correlating Organs with Manual Muscle TestsCombining these two methods results in the following table. This table gives an indication of what muscle to test when a specific spot on the Temporal Sphenoidal Line is 'sore'. With this relation in mind, one is directed to test the muscles involved in order to get more verifiable information.
