Applied Muscle Testing (AMT) is a bio-reflective analysis that looks at energy patterns in the body.
Applied Muscle Testing is best known for its effectiveness in identifying and working from the root cause of whatever is causing the body some form of dis-ease. It’s the sniper approach toward reaching your health and fitness goals faster, rather than recommending foods or supplements purely based upon the symptoms you are experiencing or lack of results you are seeing.
Our bodies are highly complex electrical systems. Everything around and within us has its own electromagnetic field, even our thoughts carry a charge of their own. Electromagnetic fields are a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. It affects the behaviour of charged objects in the vicinity of the field. Our electromagnetic field responds to the energy fields of the things we surround ourselves with as well as the things we consume. We can be affected by substances, people and the environments we expose ourselves too.
Applied Muscle Testing, is a form of Applied Kinesiology but rather than just working with reflexes of strength and weakness, we are looking more at feedback patterns from the body to determine what the best course of action is. Everything in the body affects something else so determining the root cause where change needs to come from means protocols are precise as we support the body in line with your goals. Because we are able to test for many different things, we test to get you on the right path and may refer you onto a practitioner who can run the labs to assist you further. Using the bodies autonomic nervous system, we are able to test how the body responds when exposed to substances to see if it’s something that will help our client function better or if there is something more optimal for them but it’s not just limited to supplements.
As quoted by Dr Ann Wigmore “The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison” so 90% of first time consultations start off addressing foods first.
When it comes to supplementation, we believe that lifestyle factors should be addressed before supporting the body further with supplements. It’s not to say supplements don’t have their place, they absolutely do, especially when it’s supplements your body absorbs and can benefit from. Each of us have a unique biochemistry make up which means we can respond differently to diets or eating plans, detoxes and supplements. This is why what may work exceptionally well for your friend may not work so well for you. It’s also why doing exactly what your favourite athlete on instagram is doing doesn’t always get you ripped and feeling fantastic.
We use Applied Muscle Testing to help our clients work out what foods their bodies respond best too, to take out the confusion of what supplements are best for them personally, to break plateaus and get them feeling and functioning better. It’s not used to treat, cure or diagnose any diseases but rather support the body with what it needs to function better, for better health, wellness and performance.
Through Applied Muscle Testing, we see our clients body composition improve, bloating reduced, sleep improved, more energy and have them feeling better than they were before with the added bonus of them now saving money on the supplements they didn’t need to be taking! No more guess work and better results faster! To book in for your consultation with our Applied Muscle Testing Practitioner, contact Annette at Assist Personal Training in Lilydale.
