Essential Anatomy and Physiology

Anatomy and Physiology is one of the key studies needed for any physical therapist or therapist in training. It is essential to understand the workings, mechanics and make-up of the physical body along with the functions of the various systems.

Nowadays, it is becoming increasingly beneficial for energy therapists alike to also have a good knowledge of the physical body as well as its energetic field.

This class offers an introduction into Anatomy and Physiology giving you a broad overview on the entire body and its various systems. This class is a pre-requisite for many of our physical and practitioner courses. For those wishing to study the anatomy of the body in further detail, they may wish to look into our Advanced Anatomy and Physiology Class.
