Definition: "Human Performance": The capabilities of a human when observed under particular conditions.
Dr. Allen believes that human performance displays individualized capabilities when observed under particular conditions. The human performance is plastic. It can always be improved from any starting point without using drugs or surgery.

Free Your Mind; Improve Your Focus
Your muscles need work and so does your brain. Brain games are fine, but what happens if your brain fatigues without you even knowing it? And if your brain was too tired to perceive how it was working, how would you know if your brain fatigued? Brain fatigue is painless. Keep brain fatigue from happening by improving the stimulation that comes to your brain.
Dr. Allen's "Ten Module Physiological Reflex Series" will help you understand how you can naturally enhance your patient's neurological performance and improve their attention and focus.
Your entire human nervous system is both receptor-dependent and reciprocally activated. The highest priority input to the brain comes from the stimulation of the peripheral receptors found in muscles and joints as a result of constantly changing gravitational influences. Further, in order to be appropriately facilitated the entire neuraxis requires functional reciprocity; the muscles need to take preprogrammed turns facilitating and inhibiting their signals.
Dr. Allen's Ten Module Physiological Reflex Series builds upon these ideas of gravity and reciprocity. One class follows into another to bring the clinician from the basics of using manual muscle testing (MMT) as functional neurology to the more complex applications of pain control, cerebellar and cortical function, and blends them into specific postural exercises for common structural issues. Then, in order to support the musculoskeletal system the training turns to nutritional examination techniques and ultimately how to examine organ performance -- like the heart, for example -- relative to functional neurological involvement.
