Finger modes / hand modes in specialized kinesiology

Page from "Technique Systems in Chiropractic"

Today I took the time to explore the subject of “finger modes / hand modes in kinesiology”. The reason for me to write about it is twofold:

  1. Two days ago, I tested a finger mode and to my surprise I was indicated that I had to do something with a virus. And yesterday I felt sick enough to stay in bed for the day!
  2. This morning I found this question on

Below is the result of my Google-exploration on the subject!

So what is a finger mode / hand mode

“Practical Approach: An active Finger mode is indicated when the thumb on a spot on a finger is actviated while we test the IM (indicator muscle). When the combination of fingers touching (finger mode/hand mode) turns off a IM, then we have a unbalance on that spot (see Figure 1).”

“Dr. Alan G.Beardall published along with – editing support from my current Naturopath/Chiropractor – Dr. Timothy W. Brown of White Rock, British Columbia, Canada, a set of five books called “Clinical Kinesiology Volume I – V”, which have an encyclopedic array of muscles and images of their specific testing and stabilizing positions, and drawings of their related NV’s, NLs and other bits of information.”

Clinical Kinesiology — The Cornerstone of Biocomputer Communication

“This discovery was quite serendipitous. During a treatment session, Beardall had found a weak muscle and turned around to document his finding. When he retested for confirmation the muscle was strong without any intervention. While attempting to resolve how this could have happened, Beardall noticed that the patient had several fingers touching. Retesting with the hand opened resulted in the original weak muscle. Fingers touching equaled strong muscle; hand open equaled weak muscle. This simple serendipitous discovery led to the development of hundreds of mudras or hand modes and protocols to clarify and evaluate the body’s problems and optimum solutions. In order to understand this “body language,” Dr. Beardall developed the Biocomputer Model described below.

“Many of the initial chiropractors who first took interest in Goodheart’s discovery, contributed to the research into indicator muscles in the last forty years.

The use of “finger modes” was introduced by the late Alan Beardall DC. In recent years Bruce Dewe MD and his wife Joan have compiled the most comprehensive database of kinesiology techniques under the finger mode system.”

“The Role of Acupressure Formatting in Accessing Specific Brain Structures and Functions: Richard Utt, the founder and developer of Applied Physiology, developed a system called acupressure formatting to provide the specificity required to address specific physiological functions directly. Formatting uses the frequency resonance “match” between specific combinations of acupoints of the Acupuncture Meridian System, called Specific Indicator Points, and/or Finger Modes, based on Mudras of the Yogic system, and specific physiological functions or anatomical structures. If there is a frequency match denoted by a change in muscle response when these multi-acupoint combinations are circuit-located (touched) and/or specific finger modes held simultaneously, this indicates stress in specific physiological functions or anatomical structures activated by these acupoint-finger mode combinations.”
