Muscle tests are an important tool for Nikken Distributors who demonstrate and sell product face-to-face. Since I do most of my business online they aren’t something that I do very much anymore, but they still provide for an interesting demonstration.
A quick note about the sound in the videos. My wife and I shot these videos with Sally at our kids’ preschool after we picked them up, so I apologize for the noise in the background gets too loud a few times. I do this business to be home with my kids more, so these videos show that pretty plainly too.
The Classic Magsteps Muscle Test
Muscle testing comes from Applied Kinesiology and the basic idea is that if something is good for you or benefits your body at the moment then it will make you strong. I learned about it originally massage school and I can tell you that most Nikken distributors I know do it wrong. More about that after the video. Another place where muscle testing comes up is in determining truth and you can find out more about that in the book Power vs Force by Dr. David R. Hawkins.
Here is a demonstration of the classic muscle test.
You can use this muscle test on just about anything to determine if it will benefit the body or not. It is also commonly done with Nikken’s PiMag water and Ciaga. To demonstrate with those products, do the first test before they drink then test again after they drink and see the difference.
Where most people go wrong is in trying to overpower the person, which you don’t want to do. In the video I did the test on Sally without the insoles and didn’t have to push much at all for her arms to go down. When she was standing on the insoles I did push harder so that she would get the difference between before and after, but not so hard that her shoulders hurt.
The first time I was on the receiving end of a test from a Nikken distributor my shoulders were sore for the rest of the day. Just remember, your prospect isn’t going to buy from you if you hurt them.
The Seated Magsteps Test
I really don’t know what to call this because it isn’t really a muscle test, but it is very effective all the same. It is the better demonstration to use if your subject is elderly or has problems with their shoulders.
Like I already said, I don’t know what to really call this demonstration and, to honest, I don’t know what it proves other than that “something” is happening when the insoles are under your feet and something is always better than nothing.
I prefer to use this demonstration because nobody can tell me that I pushed harder the second time or any of the other excuses people come up with to try to invalidate the results on the standing muscle test. Here, either your feet come off the floor or they don’t.
Do you have another demonstration that you like to use? Tell me about it in a comment below then share this post with your followers on the social networks.
