Many kinesiology systems work with the concept of priority. There may be a priority for what symptom or goal is tackled first. Priority is established using finger modes (Priority Mode) or asking verbal questions. Priority does not equal importance. Small things may need fixing before big things. For example, the energy system may want to fix a minor physical problem first, because it is getting worse rapidly, rather than a bigger problem that is chronic and debilitating but not deteriorating.
Once the priority symptom or goal is established, there may also be priority for the order of the techniques and procedures. The meridian or correction that takes priority is simply the first thing that is required. If you think about making a cake, getting the bowls out of the cupboard is not necessarily the most important thing to do, but it is one of the first.
