(Ep. 112) An Introduction to Muscle Testing: A Powerful Tool to Access Your Body’s Innate Wisdom

On this episode of The Beats, Kelly brings back her favorite guest, her husband and business partner, Ian Kennedy. Together, they take a deep dive into the topic of muscle testing and its many benefits and applications. Sometimes referred to as “applied kinesiology,” Kelly and Ian reveal how muscle testing is not only an important bio-feedback tool they use in clinical applications, but also share how it can be an effective technique for individuals seeking greater insight and management of their own health.


This discussion includes a detailed overview of how muscle testing assesses the body’s intricate electrical networks. By identifying incoherences or any dysregulation between these networks, the practitioner or individual is able to identify what potential therapies or substances might strengthen the system and rebalance the imbalances.

Kelly and Ian are excited to announce that they will soon be offering a Master Class that will allow you to learn how to apply and incorporate muscle testing in your daily self-care routine- enabling you to access and utilize your body’s innate healing capacity!
