Anatomy & Physiology Training

Anatomy refers to the structure of the body, especially bones and muscles (see Kinesiology).

Physiology refers to the workings of the body’s systems – such as the Digestive System, the Immune System, etc.

Massage therapists use their in-depth knowledge of the body’s anatomy and physiology to develop session strategies for their clients that are both safe and effective.

Instructors at National Holistic Institute use a wide variety of methods to make the study of anatomy and physiology accessible and relevant to the practice of massage therapy, some of which include:

  • 3 dimensional models of the body
  • Group exercises, such as drawing muscles on each other
  • Colorful videos
  • The most recent editions of industry-standard textbooks
