Course Description

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.

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 this course.

Our 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 and is completely comprehensive.

The student will be introduced to the language of anatomy and the way in which the position of organs and other body parts are described. This is followed by the description of each of the body’s systems and their organs including the cell, the skeletal system, the integumentary system, the muscular system, the nervous system, the endocrine system, the respiratory system, the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system, the digestive system and the reproductive system.

Detailed knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology is the sound base on which the student can build on in order to become a knowledgeable and valued Holistic Practitioner.

Anatomy & Physiology Course Feedback

Hi Julia,
Many thanks for this fantastic news, I’m thrilled to bits with the results of my Anatomy & Physiology final examination. 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 & 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 for 2012.
