What does the word "Splankna" mean? It is New Testament Greek for the “subconscious.”
What is Holistic healing? Holistic healing uses the same system in the body that Acupuncture and Chiropractic are based on to alleviate psychological trauma. The body plays a part in storing emotional trauma. Energy Psychology goes through the body door to help clients release the trauma.
What is muscle testing? is the tool used to access this stored emotional content. Any major muscle in the body (deltoids in this case) that is fairly well isolated, will respond to electrical/energetic shifts that go off in the body. So, when the client is asked a question, there is a small electrical/energetic shift created by the congruence, like a reply or verification. This shift shows up in the muscle by causing it to momentarily de-activate. When a muscle is de-activated it will give when pressure is applied rather than bounce back. This simple body mechanism provides something similar to "yes/no" answers. Since, the Sub-c has all of the person’s life experiences catalogued, a practitioner can ascertain, for instance, how many emotions are fueling a particular symptom, when they occurred, where they are stored in the body, etc., by watching the muscle reactions to questions and statements. Since the subconscious mind has all of the person’s life experiences catalogued, a practitioner can ascertain, for instance, how many emotions are fueling a particular symptom, when they occurred, where they are stored in the body, etc., by noting the muscle reactions to questions. It is important to mention that muscle-testing, though very useful, is also imperfect. There are many variables that affect a muscle-test and it must always be “taken with a grain of salt.”
