Autonomic Response Testing ART
What is Autonomic Response Testing?
Autonomic Response Testing is a simple, yet highly effective biofeedback assessment technique used to determine disturbances in your body and possible remedies. It is an advanced form of muscle testing. ART is non-invasive, non-electronic, and can be used to assess people of any age. It is a most valuable functional assessment tool in determining the root cause of health disturbances.
The “autonomic’ in ART refers to the autonomic nervous system. This is the part of the nervous system responsible for all the automatic functions of your body such as your heartbeat, breathing, digestion, healing, etc. Detectable and treatable problems within this part of your nervous system are present is all body dysfunction (such as allergy) and all chronic diseases.
ART Muscle Testing Biofeedback System
ART was developed by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, who blended the muscle testing of Applied Kinesiology with the understanding of the anatomy and physiology of German Neural Therapy. The result is a highly structured muscle testing biofeedback system designed to give reliable and reproducible results.
ART is just one of the functional assessment tools that may be used by the Integrative practitioner along with conventional medical tests and sound medical judgement to develop an Integrative medical strategy.
