Do I really have to change out of my street clothes and wear a mask?

Yes please :) We all need to work together so that we can all stay safe. Trust me, you will feel better changing out of your street clothes.  Please bring a clean set of comfy clothes that are not constricting, and do not contain jean, zippers, belts, etc.

There is a change room and washroom in my office to use before your appointment.

What if I have to cancel my appointment due to illness?

If you are feeling sick or are un-vaccinated we can still  have your appointment over Zoom or Phone

 I am currently not taking any new Shiatsu Massage clients at this time.  Please check back in the late spring. :)

Are you fully vaccinated?

Due to the highly contagious variants circulating at this time.  I require that all of my clients be fully vaccinated. We are all in this together.

So, if all of  us follow the same protocols we can all stay safe & healthy.

As such, things like changing into new clean comfy clothes, washing our hands with soap and water, wearing a mask, or even working over Zoom if needed, help to keep us all healthy.  :)

What is muscle monitoring or testing?

Muscle monitoring or testing gives us information. It is a bio-feedback tool used to find and locate stress.

If a muscle is locked and strong we say there is balanced energy in that muscle or meridian.

If a muscle unlocks or is weak we say there is some sort of stress. Is it on a physical, mental,  emotional, or nutritionally, level?

How do you muscle monitor or test?

After doing some pre-checks and checking your range of motion.  The muscles being monitored or tested are put into a contracted position. As the muscle is extended, gradual pressure is applied along with 2 pounds of pressure, for 2 seconds, for 2 inches.  Anyone can learn it!

Check out the Touch For Health  Classes page.

What is Specialized Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is the science of movement in the body via the muscles.

Specialized Kinesiology also looks for imbalances on a physiological, biochemical, and or psychological level, along with environmental factors.

By using muscle monitoring and other corrective techniques we can locate the factors involved in the the stress held  in the body/mind.

Can Muscle Testing diagnose or cause any harm?

Body Talk & Touch For Health work with a "Self responsibility" model. We always get permission to work to someone.

We do not diagnose diseases, heal others, or prescribe medications.

You cannot tell the future, read someones mind, harm yourself, or harm others. When we muscle monitor or test we are looking for stress and the imbalances that contribute to it.

Muscle monitoring or testing is safe, reliable, and effective.
