Kinesiology and Muscle Response Testing are becoming better known worldwide with many new pieces of research reaching peer reviewed journals.

2014 – present  Ongoing Observational Study

Using Kinesiology on individuals diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome

In 2014 the Kinesiology Federation in collaboration with the University of Exeter, launched its own research project which looks at using kinesiology on individuals with the medically diagnosed condition of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).   This on-going project is an observational study which uses both qualitative and quantitative data collection methods used in the medical profession for this condition.

We are still recruiting individuals for this piece of research and if you suffer from IBS and would like to see if kinesiology can help you clear your symptoms, please contact me.

Oxford University was recently involved in research into Muscle Response Testing, the primary tool of any Kinesiologist.

When doctoral student Anne M Jensen first presented the results of her study on muscle response testing, the results were so impressive that the university staff didn’t believe them and made her repeat the study to replicate the results.  This she did.

The sceptical faces were now interested. The results of this unknown testing format surprised everyone… by being a whole lot more reliable than they ever imagined.

Having successfully completed her doctorate, Dr Jensen chose to have her research paper published open source and so the full study is now available online:
