Brain Body Integration

Human performance / Total Optimum Performance

Connecting all the pieces and parts of Human Performance and The Challenge of Functional Neurologic Disorganization


Functional neurologic disorganization is a commonly occurring natural impediment to human performance on the field, in the classroom, on the job, in relationship, in all of life  Utilizing muscle response testing derived from the science of Applied Kinesiology it can be demonstrated that a majority of athletes manifest this dysfunction.

The Problem

Functional neurologic disorganization affects the body’s intelligent expression through nearly  undetectable compromise of the ability to maintain spatial orientation and balance front to back and side to side, to sit or stand erect with the head centered on the neck, to maintain evenness of stride (gait) when walking or running, to be aware of and respond to situations of active challenge and movement. It compromises the way we process information in our brains, affecting mental and personality performance. It inhibits any optimum performance.

The Neurology

There are numerous reflex neurologic loops in human function. Those affected in neurologic disorganization include the cloacal, labyrinthine, vestibular, and ocular reflexes and others. Musculoskeletal coordination is dependent on the remarkable interplay and coordination of the body’s complex neurology to the degree that even the subtle movements of the eyes must remain in total integration with the musculoskeletal system throughout each and every movement of the body. It can be demonstrated in the disorganized nervous system that there are numerous instances of inhibition of any body muscle response when certain eye movements are executed. The 12 cranial nerves can be shown to exhibit instances of inappropriate body inhibition also. The body can be shown through muscle testing to be inappropriately facilitated and inhibited in various apparently normal physical movements. That is, the body will “turn on and off” inappropriately through its performance ranges and the brain is challenged to obtain optimal function.

The Cause

The broad ranging effects of this disorganization are partially a result of the neurologic response to any injury, no matter how slight, in such a way that the full, active performance of any physical movement can be shown to manifest multiple instances of inhibition of body response throughout the movement to the detriment of the performance. Injury creates inhibition.

The injury can be physical or other injury or stress in which the body locally or universally inhibits its own function. In a general way the entire system locks itself in a fight or flight neurologic response. For unknown reasons, these injury manifestations do not reset themselves to their appropriate neutrality.  The fact that the body appears to function in seeming excellence in spite of these faults is testament to its adaptability.

Performance Integration Technology

Applied Kinesiology makes use of the muscle response of the body and a specific subject/technician input as a tool to access functional neurology. This information provides leverage for obtaining large gains in modification of performance. It allows evaluation of neurologic reflexes within the soma, somatovisceral, viscerosomatic, etc. systems. Performance Integration relates to many therapeutic approaches—the meridian system, vertebral subluxation, craniosacral respiratory mechanism, and primitive reflex systems of the body. For a highly trained practitioner, the muscle test is a precision tool.

This new technology is painless, without body invasion or tissue or spine manipulation, while being quick, precise and reproducible. These factors lend to its acceptability, and minimum time and effort for delivery.


These neurologic integration procedures successfully correct many functional neurologic expression dis-orders which are essentially input-output incongruities of the mind/body. Application of the technology has consistently enhanced athletic performance. All athletes and others treated reflect their feelings of increased confidence, sense of well being, centeredness, strength enhancement and more.

The most commonly reported effects from gymnasts, golfers, Naval aviators, dancers, track and field athletes and more are these:

  • Improved balance and coordination
  • Improved ability to handle stress
  • Improved ability to process information
  • Greater self-confidence
  • Greater self-esteem

All recipients demonstrate by Applied Kinesiology muscle testing procedures improved brain/body communication manifesting as increased strength and reflex response. Their body intelligence clearly increases.


First, muscles are tested to determine if the subject has the pattern of muscle response that indicates neurologic function compromise. Next, if tests are positive, Performance Integration protocol is applied. Each specific muscle test that is weak is used to discover the subject’s counteractive reflexes. That reflex is stimulated following which the test muscle responds normally, indicating correction of the fault. The reflex stimulus is a light tap.

The subject lies supine on a treatment table as the doctor repeatedly tests muscle and stimulates counteractive reflexes. The treatment, called Performance Integration is generally painless, without invasion or bony movement, and takes a few minutes. The apparent simplicity of it is quite remarkable.

To perform the treatment the protocol demands a specific pattern of progress in testing and treatment. It is this protocol that is the key to complete and permanent resolution of the dis-organization. The eight treatments necessary can be administered in a three day period with intervals between treatments of four hours.

No negative effect has ever been observed or reported in any treated individual. All ages and types have been treated since 1989.

Repetition of the Integration treatment is not necessary when properly done. Once is enough and results last indefinitely. The few cases where repeat was necessary were head traumas.
