Applied Physiology is the study of biological systems with advanced theoretical and practical understanding of the functioning of the muscular, respiratory and cardiovascular systems. It involves the application of the knowledge of physiological properties to restore core stability and joint stability.
However, in the natural health field, the term Applied Physiology is used to indicate the many systems which have sprung from Applied Kinesiology and Touch for Health™.
Here, muscles become monitors of stress and imbalance within the body. The concept of “muscle testing” becomes a very effective and versatile tool for detecting and correcting various imbalances in the body which may relate to stress, nutrition, learning problems, injuries and so on.
In addition to balancing the body, Applied Physiology gives us tools to assess how your body moves, and adjusts to compensate for injuries, restrictions and pain. In essence it helps to locate the cause of the imbalance, not just the symptoms.
