LESSON FIVE

Q1. Give an example of when you might use a surrogate for testing. When the
subject may suffer from severe pain or paralysis, may be old or frail, have a
broken limb or be a baby or small child. In these cases we use a surrogate for the
muscle testing.
Q2. What do you understand by I.M. testing?

Any muscle of the body which is strong and functioning normally can be used as
the single, indicator muscle. when a muscle tests 'strong' it indicates that the
energy circuit is clear. The brain can therefore cope with the pressure applied by
the tester, without stress. If the muscle tests 'weak' this indicates momentary
disorganisation in the brain which cannot cope with two stressors. (a) the stress
of keeping the muscle in position; (b) the stressor already in stimulation which is
causing blockage of energy flow.
