ABOUT US


The Academy of Functional Sciences was founded by a group of like-minded professionals who have brought together their decades of knowledge in the fields of bodily function, neuroscience, vocational education, business and management to offer a unique range of courses for those looking for a new career direction.

The Academy of Functional Sciences combines nervous system function and whole-body performance disciplines with business/management -related courses to enable graduates to develop the core knowledge and skills of their chosen field of study together with those related to running a business so they are able to establish and manage their own practices.

What Are the Functional Sciences? 

What are Functional Sciences?

At the Academy of Functional Sciences (AFS) we define Functional Sciences as those disciplines that examine how the human body functions in particular circumstances with the purpose of establishing ideal environments for physical growth and mobility in order to achieve quality of life.

These may include aspects of:

  • Anatomy
  • Biomechanics
  • Neuroscience
  • Nutrition
  • Physiology
  • Spinal Dynamics

Functional Sciences focus on those aspects which affect our physical development, function, mobility and performance. Our quality of life is primarily determined by the functional performance of our nervous system, with major contributions from our diet, our understanding of the core elements of our functionality and the nature of the physical and mental demands we place on ourselves. An understanding of these and their relationships to each other enables us to make life enhancing decisions that allow us to function optimally and achieve the best performance possible, in all areas of our lives.
