Anatomy and Physiology Course

A Distance Learning Diploma Course of 12 Lessons

Anatomy is the study of the form and structure of the body, its systems and organs. Physiology is the study of how cells, tissues and organisms function and how the parts of the body work and relate to each other.

Our comprehensive course covers the subject from the basic structure of the living cell, the tissues they make up and each of the major systems and organs of the human body. The course assumes no prior knowledge of anatomy and physiology.

All professional Holistic Therapists will find that a sound grasp of human Anatomy and Physiology provides a useful foundation to their therapy studies. Every therapist should aim to complete a course in this subject.

I wasn’t expecting to have loved this subject so much, but I found it completely engrossing!! So, now looking forward to completing my Aromatherapy foundation, and am working through my ‘case studies’. Anatomy and Physiology, is a fascinating course, and really helped me to put my Aromatherapy knowledge into context. I already know that it will be a great ‘stepping stone’ to other areas of learning, and I don’t doubt that it will enhance my abilities, and credibility, as a professional therapist. I highly recommend your Anatomy and Physiology course. All the very best to you, and the team.

Having not studied for over 20 years, I was really worried that I would have lost the knack. The Anatomy & Physiology course was really very interesting and the more I looked back over each module, the more I could see how they all linked together, and this is from someone who didn’t study Biology at school past age 12! I’m sure it will be invaluable to the other subjects I have lined up to do with the School of Natural Health Sciences next, and will give people confidence that I at least have some idea how the body works. I look forward to Aromatherapy next – yippee!!!
