Rapid Assessment & Treatment
This article is meant to explain an easy to use process to help define the core therapeutic issue of the client and pick the most useful therapy approaches to quickly resolve the problem.
I’ve been a therapist since 1973 and used standard therapies till 1989. In 1989 I was introduced to muscle testing or Applied Kinesiology as a testing tool. I started to use it every now and then with friends till I got comfortable with this new form of communication.
I read Dr. John Diamond’s book “The Body Doesn’t Lie” and watched Dr. James Durlacher demonstrate it and became sold on it.
In 1990 I took classes in Dr. Roger Callahan’s Thought Field Therapy (the original process) an acupressure technique and then took classes in Emotional Freedom Techniques (a stream lined version of TFT) popularized by Gary Craig.

A question became rolling around in my head in the early 1990’s. The question was if a person can be damaged in a second why can’t they heal in a second as well?
That question led me to a chiropractor who was holding the first training I went to on Thought Field Therapy. In a class of 20 taking notes “only Callahan’s and Durlacher s book were out then, I began to learn these dynamic approaches. But very soon a man named Dr. Fred Gallo wrote Energy Psychology and I discovered EFT and other “Power Therapies”.
I am discussing these books so you can seek them out if you are interested in learning these strategies.
Kinesiology (muscle testing - go to youtube and type in kinesiology demonstration and get a view of how kinesiology) is used in all of these approaches to healing/curing fears, phobias, addictive urges, PTSD, anxiety, trauma, communication breakdowns, marriage and family problems, unresolved grief etc.
It is the bodies’ lie detector. I began to use the “Power Therapies” and got comfortable with kinesiology. I now trust it completely. Remember that kinesiology is not a treatment tool it is testing tool.
The following clinical tool is one I developed for use in my practice. I added in all the clinical tools I know and invite you to create your own list. This tool is used with kinesiology and I ask the client to focus on 1 issue for us to work on. Then I go through the list and discover the information using kinesiology.

Original Problem perpetrator

Family Friend/s Minister/s, Priests Nun/s Neighbor/s
This process usually takes 3-5 minutes or less. Once I have discovered the issue and the right therapy I then work with the client using the tool identified that is most beneficial for the client.
At the end of the session I retest the client on their energy attachment to the problem. I have them rate the level of discomfort they notice as they think about the problem. In most cases the discomfort with the problem is down to a 1 or 2.
The more I use the tool the more comfortable I got with it and the results of each session showed the success of the process. I now guarantee each session. No Change No Charge.
By using the wisdom of the body one can get an unbiased look at effective problem solving approaches.
