Biomechanics & Biophysiology I & II
Understanding human activity from a mechanical and physiological perspective so to address major issues, which include reducing the risk of injury, optimizing exercise prescription and understanding clinical evaluations. Functional anatomy, muscle and passive tissue mechanics, anthropometry, electromyography, and linked segment mechanics are introduced and applied to clinical, occupational and athletic situations. Basic concepts of cardiovascular, respiratory and thermoregulatory responses to physical activity.
Iridology & Sclerology
When applied correctly, Iridology is a highly accurate assessment tool for the practitioner in understanding the genetic blueprints as well as the strength and weaknesses of their clients.
The student will learn treatments for various illnesses with the use of colored light. This extensive in Spectro-Chrome Therapy covers all aspects of its applications in a myriad of given situations. Let There Be Light is truly one of the most direct expressions of the power to heal naturally.
Physics of the Human Body
This interesting course combines physics with anatomy and physiology to tell the story of how the body operates. We cover food and energy metabolism, how trauma occurs in the body. We discuss the meaning of blood pressure how the heart and lungs operate. We cover how we hear, how we see and how x-rays and MRI scans work. There will be lectures on cancer treatment as well as how a person is injured skiing and riding mountain bikes. With each subject we discuss common diseases and treatments.
This course includes an introduction to fundamental concepts in bioinformatics and will introduce students to the data that is being managed, databases where this data resides, knowledge bases which are used to associate concepts with each other, and tools of analysis of this data. The course will have a short introduction to terminology and concepts, although it is strongly recommended that students will have had an introduction to molecular biology and genetics concepts in their undergraduate coursework. This course serves as the first course for students who wish to take more advanced courses in these topics.
Exercise physiology is an applied discipline that combines knowledge of metabolic biochemistry, cellular and organ system physiology, and anatomic structure and function in order to understand and explain physical and athletic performance. In this course, students will be introduced to the metabolic, muscular, and cardio-respiratory adaptations to both acute and chronic exercise in humans.
This is an introductory course designed to teach students the basics of biofeedback, its history, instrumentation, and intervention techniques including the assessment, treatment, and evaluation processes. The course covers both clinical (treatment of pathology) and non-clinical (optimal human performance) applications of biofeedback.
The Biofeedback Workshop is required by students who wish to obtain diploma in allied health with specialty in biofeedback & neurofeedback. This workshop complements the biofeedback course and is designed to provide opportunities and guidance in the application of biofeedback.
This course in neurofeedback provides the student an overview of the advanced alternative treatments for a wide range of conditions that are difficult to control. For many, a primary treatment is medication. Using neurofeedback and brain training, you will be able to significantly improve the quality of life for trainees suffering from anxiety, depression, insomnia, PTSD, autism, addiction, ADD/ADHD, and many other serious conditions.
The Neurofeedback Workshop is required by students who wish to obtain diploma in allied health with specialty in biofeedback & neurofeedback. This workshop complements the neurofeedback course and is designed to provide opportunities and guidance in the application of neurofeedback.
This course provides an introduction to understanding the function of the human brain and its relation to behavior. The goal of this course is for students to integrate a basic understanding of the anatomy and neurology of the brain information into their existing knowledge base regarding cognitive functions.
