What We Do

It’s the most common question we get, and we can answer it in three words:

Functional Applied Neuroscience

But if that’s not descriptive enough, here are a few more words to help it make sense...

Z-Health is an educational curriculum that applies equally well to physicians, therapists, coaches, trainers and anyone interested in building better, stronger human beings. The end goal of our curriculum is to create professionals who are unparalleled in their ability to provide rehabilitation, fitness training and sports performance coaching to their clients through a brain-based lens.

Students at our courses learn how to precisely implement a seamlessly integrated training system that blends emergent research from fields including:

  • Pain Neuroscience
  • Movement Neurology
  • Biomechanics and Kinesiology
  • Sports Vision Training
  • Vestibular Rehabilitation
  • Motor Learning Theory and Application
  • Respiratory Rehabilitation and Training
  • Sports Skill Coaching
  • Modern Strength and Mobility Training
  • Behavior Modification

NEUROCENTRIC TRAINING

To simplify the concept of neurocentric training, consider that three basic steps are required for the human nervous system to create movement and control posture:

In this process, the peripheral and central nervous systems must:

  1. Receives INPUT signals from sensory systems
  2. INTERPRETS the incoming signals and makes a DECISION about what to do
  3. Creates a motor OUTPUT

This means that every movement we make is the SUM TOTAL of:

  • Incoming signal quality and quantity
  • The brain’s ability to accurately understand and interpret inputs, and
  • Outgoing motor control quality and movement capacity

Because each of these factors carry equal importance in how we feel, move and perform, Z-Health professionals must be experts in assessing and training each component of the total neural loop.
