Muscle Response Testing
Pressure points are stimulated along the spine then specific acupuncture points are needled. The needles should remain in place for 20 minutes. In the case of small children or people uncomfortable with needles, acupressure may be used instead.
The allergen must then be avoided for a minimum of 25 hours.
The allergens are treated and cleared in a specific order and normally one item is treated per session. There are 15 basic items (nutrients) that must be cleared before moving on to the specific allergies of each patient. This is to ensure the patient's immune system is strong enough for the treatments of the specific allergens to hold.
Usually, it will take only one session to clear each allergen, although in cases of extreme sensitivity, more than one session per allergen may be required.
