Applied Physiology

Overview of Applied Physiology

Applied Physiology is the branch of Kinesiology developed in the mid-1980s by Richard D. Utt. It is one of the most used forms of Kinesiology in the world and from it many other branches were born. For example, Brain Integration by Charles Krebs, Neuroenergetic Kinesiology by Hugo Tobar, Kinergetics by Philip Rafferty, Stress Indicator Points System (SIPS) by Ian Stubbings, Neuro-Meridian Kinestetik by Irmtraud Große-Lindemann and K-Physis by Marco Rado. These are all branches of Kinesiology that were developed using several innovative ideas introduced by Richard Utt.

The basic course of Applied Physiology, although called the Basic Course, is actually aimed at people who already have experience in Kinesiology, precisely because many new concepts are exposed. 

These are the main concepts found within the Basic Course of Applied Physiology:

  • Applying the Holographic Theory to Kinesiology; introducing the concept of co-ordinates, which lead to the use of two Meridians at the same time
  • Testing the muscles throughout their range of movement, both in contraction and in extension, thus monitoring each muscle in 14 positions
  • Describing 7 different conditions of muscle response using the terms Facilitation and Inhibition
  • Expanding the concept of the 5 Elements by dividing Fire into two distinct elements, namely Sovereign Fire and Ministerial Fire and adding the Air element
  • Using Sound frequencies produced by Diapason, as a means to rebalance the Meridians, but also the whole body-mind system.

This part of the course introduces the student to the Holographic Theory. This theory has been used by several scientists to explain some of the paradoxes of physics and neurology. Just as a hologram is a three-dimensional image generated by two laser beams, so AP is a holographic system on two parameters (namely the Object Meridian and the Reference Meridian).

When these two parameters are identified, information is obtained that allows us to identify a very specific area of stress and imbalance in the body. We will deepen this work by entering the somato-psycho plane and realise how we memorise our attitudes, thoughts and emotions on a cellular level. Trauma, shock, emotions and repetitive behaviours are a disturbing field that can create major imbalances in our entire physiological functioning. Positive affirmations, flower essences and frequencies generated by tuning forks can be useful to unlock these hidden holographic memories.

In the first two days we will discuss the Floral Essences. In AP there are three types of Flower Essences used: Bach Flower, Desert Alchemy and Australian Bush Flower essences. These flowers will be identified through muscle monitoring and can be applied in numerous ways.

Much time will also be dedicated to the use of frequencies generated by tuning forks that Richard Utt has developed. In AP we use 14 tuning forks, one for each meridian, which are used to rebalance the meridian or associated organ or can be used to overcome emotional blocks. Sound is one of the purest forms of energy!

In this module you will learn how to monitor the 16 muscles of Applied Physiology in 14 positions. Applied Kinesiology, the method from which Applied Physiology arises, recognizes that each muscle has a primary organ/meridian relationship, in which each muscle has a meridian connected to the position of maximum contraction.

However, research carried out by the International Institute of Applied Physiology has shown that a muscle varies its relationship with the meridians when it is monitored throughout the range of motion. This leads to complete monitoring in 14 positions, seven in contraction, seven in extension, bringing into play the agonist-antagonist relationship of the nervous system.

Each position becomes a co-ordinate in which there are two aspects: an Object Meridian (which identifies the muscle tested) and a Reference Meridian (which identifies the specific position). Participants will become familiar with the Seven Levels of Muscle Stress and will begin studying the Theory of the 7 Elements, the expansion that Richard Utt, founder of Applied Physiology, has made with respect to the Theory of the 5 Elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

This part of the course introduces the Holographic Model of Acupuncture. This model consisting of two Alarm Points directs the student to a specific Acupuncture Point indicated by the Acupressure System of the 7 Elements.

You will learn to determine the level of specific muscle stress that has disrupted the energy balance of the physiological-energy system. This allows you to correct any imbalances with the millennial experience of Acupuncture.

In addition, you will learn to correct an organ-meridian in depth by using the “Can Opener” method. When there is an extended imbalance in one organ this will allow the practitioner to work deeply on the one organ.

This part of the course will focus on the technique known as Tibetan Figure 8. This is one of the main correction techniques (along with the Seven Chi Keys) that are taught in Applied Physiology.

It is a powerful system for balancing electromagnetic imbalances. This infinite movement of energy is divided into 196 electromagnetic configurations of the system of Figure of 8s.

This technique is excellent for neurological problems, for children with learning difficulties and dyslexic tendencies, for pain in general and especially traumatic ones, for posture and gait problems.

In this part of the course, we focus on four new holographic models.

The Acu-Touch Hologram allows the student to precisely identify the area of the body in which to act and what type of touch to apply and how to stimulate the various proprioceptors and the somaesthetic cortex.

The concepts of the hologram of Hand and Foot Reflexology are also introduced to increase body detoxification. Furthermore, we will study how to rebalance emotional attitudes that originate from one’s family tree.

Finally, you will learn the working method known as the “Basket Weaver” which allows the student to jump from one meridian to another, from one organ to another and “mend” together the blocked energy channels using all the information and work procedures learned in the Applied Physiology course.
