eTip-029   Cool helpful feature in eTouch - 'MOR'

Exploring a cool feature in eTouch!
One of our favorite and most useful features in eTouch is the MOR feature which identifies special relationships to the primary 14 muscles. What are MOR muscles? 

(M) Meridian muscles on the same meridian
(O) Opposing muscles
(R) Related muscles (in function or location)

Dr. John Thie, when conducting a 14-muscle balance, would often go outside the circle when he found one of the 14 primary muscles unlocking. He would then test and balance the these MOR muscles. This can be a very effective balancing technique.

eTouch includes screens that display the MOR muscles in the Muscles Reference, so that you can study and learn these special relationships. In an active Session, eTouch has the ability to easily add these muscles to a session by clicking the MOR buttons. 

We hope you find using the MOR features as useful as we do!

  Noctive that the two Opposing Muscles are added to the list, the Middle Trapezius and Lower Trapezius. Notice that they are highlighted in Yellow and are marked untested. There is also an 'O' on the left indicating that they were added and are Opposing Muscles. Meridian would have been indicated by 'M' and Related by 'R'. Also, the Opposing Button is gone and replaced with the message 'All Opposing Added'.
