HLTKIN002 - Conduct indicator muscle monitoring
This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to monitor neurological feedback from the body using manual muscle monitoring. It requires the ability to prepare self and client, gain consent, establish indicator muscles, make pre-checks and to integrate both client and practitioner perspectives in indicator muscle monitoring to determine imbalances. This skill is the fundamental tool used in kinesiology. The use of self-testing, where the practitioner tests themselves on behalf of the client, falls outside of the scope of this unit.
This unit applies to complementary and allied health practitioners who use muscle monitoring within their practice. The practitioner may or may not be a kinesiologist.
The skills in this unit must be applied in accordance with Commonwealth and State/Territory legislation, Australian/New Zealand standards and industry codes of practice.
