  • SKART is a perfect tool for practitioners to be able to help their clients more. It gives you quick diagnostic tools, treatment methods and a client feedback system so that you and your client can see that the treatment has worked.
  • SKART muscle testing is a way to communicate with the body. It is a biofeedback system that talks to the body in a language which the body understands and can respond to and gives real time feedback. It allows us to use the patient’s own body as the research tool to find out what it needs, where to treat, how to treat and gives feedback on whether the correction has held and corrected the problem area, giving patient reassurance, as it is easy to see the difference.
  • Using SKART to find imbalances and issues through muscle testing helps remove the doubt, guesswork and the hard work of subjective diagnostics.
  • SKART is non force and gentler than many other manipulative therapies. It is quick to locate the problem area, needing no gadgets and it can be done anywhere. I have corrected people’s neck problems on trains, planes and by the beach.
  • Learn to use SKART to study the body’s energy systems. To use the muscles as diagnostic tools to access the most appropriate treatment for the body, to find the exact pain site and to be able to treat it so you can clear the pain.

Background knowledge

George Goodheart, an American chiropractor in 1964 discovered that specific muscles of the body when tested could reveal a great deal about a person’s state of health. He called this technique Applied Kinesiology, “Kinesiology as it is relates to the study of energy and movement” and “Applied as it was of practical use”.

SKART has evolved from kinesiology principals and the theory to bring the body into balance is 

" Each muscle relies on: A nerve to activate it, Blood supply to oxygenate it, Lymph to clear it and the 

acupressure meridian to energize it".

In the 1960’s Dr George Goodheart concluded that it was not really muscle spasm that pulled the spine out of place, but more likely that a weak muscle on one side of the body caused a normal muscle opposing it to become or seem tight. Working on just releasing the tight muscle will therefore usually only give short term relief.

Much research has gone into Kinetics (energy work). Leading researchers Dr Bennett and Dr Jarnette worked on reflexes and showed how activation of skin areas with deep massage or light touch can get muscles to move bones without working on the bones themselves.

Postural Patterns - There is no question that muscles do contract and go into spasm. Many patients have problems involving muscle spasm. However, when patients are examined for muscle spasm, it has been found that an overwhelming majority of these patients have muscle weakness rather than primary muscle spasm, and it is this weakness which then causes the opposing muscle to contract. Therefore, the contracted muscle is a secondary effect of the primary muscle weakness.
