Welcome to Easy Anatomy online. The first section of this course includes lessons from our DVD on each body system. Each lesson covers the basics of each system, and a variety of pathologies that can happen in each system, and how massage relates to each system.

The next section is 4 brief lessons that are less than 5 minute each on the basic muscles of each body area.

The final section includes in-depth information on each muscle area. This section of the video uses our anatomy app “muscle and bone anatomy 3d” and the instructor discusses the anatomy while manipulating the 3d models. With each of these sections, the understanding of the muscular system builds adding more depth and clarity.

This class also includes access to our 3d anatomy viewer which allows you to rotate the body and view 120 muscles and 100 bones with detailed info on each.
