How does doing a muscle test identify a 'disconnected circuit'?
  
Practitioners using the NIS system use a muscle test to determine WHERE and WHY neurological potential has been reduced.  We use muscle testing as a benchmark to retrieve data from the brain.

Using the NIS system practitioners will evaluate which neurological pathways have been pushed past their tolerance levels, and have become `disconnected'.  By contacting specific combinations of anatomical locations a muscle under resistance will weaken if the brain fails to understand the relativity or relationship of those contact areas.  

Thinking of learning NIS - but not confident with muscle testing or have never muscle tested before? 
NIS works on a very different platform for muscle testing than other modalities. It works on a very precise neurological platform. Practitioners can easily test the difference between weak and strong by releasing contact from the anatomical contact points and test again to 'feel the difference'.
It is important that both you and your patient can `feel the difference' in order to have confidence during the treatment. Muscle-testing, and its application using the NIS system is taught at the beginning of the Module A seminar.   
Muscle testing has been used widely for many years, and remains the most accurate means of accessing data from the brain.

How is data retrieved from the BRAIN using NIS?
Muscles in the body should at all times be able to resist a given force. This will be easy when integrity of the sensory-motor loop exists. 
The NIS protocols collectively evaluate integrated function of the body.  Each step determines congruence (proper communication) between the brain and certain neurological centres. These centres may be derived from cortical, spinal, visceral and glandular circuits. 
If neurological confusion (or incongruence) exists, the information referred via the sensory-motor loop will produce gross muscle weakness of any (originally strong) muscle elected for testing.
