Kinesiology For Horses??

Has anyone experienced a vet, farrier, or friend use Kinesiology to help diagnose a problem? Where can I find this information or the charts that show the points? I cannot spend the money to order then, but would like to at least be able to view them.

What are your opinions on the use of Kinesiology to diagnose problems?

Thinking about taking a course on this myself...

The difficulty lies not in the new ideas, but escaping the old ones.....

Are you referring to muscle testing? If so, yes. I have a friend who's been doing it for 15yrs.

Yes, muscle response to pressure points. Example, points along the back line are related to the liver, kidney, and digestive system. However, I would like to find out more on this subject.

Those are called meridians.

You can pick up a book on equine acupuncture or acupressure and learn about the meridians.

I don't know the name of the muscle testing book though that my friend has, but they are out there. Perhaps visit some BB's on the subject and ask those folks.

Can't help with obtaining the pressure points, but the link I've attached is the fellow we use for our horse's. I can't say enough good things about him and the procedure.
