This course focuses on the muscular system, but includes sections on the lymphatic, nervous and cardiovascular systems as well. The videos in this course come from our Anatomy and Pathology for bodyworkers (74 minutes long), plus another 90 minutes of content specifically on the muscular system made especially for this class.
The first section of this course include lessons from our DVD on each body system. Each lesson includes 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 basics muscles of each body area.
The final section includes in-depth information on each muscle area. This section 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.
