The Anatomy and Physiology award is the foundation upon which all other Complementary, Beauty and Sports Therapy awards are based. It is comprised of several units encompassing all systems of the body.
It is essential for therapists to have a sound understanding of anatomy and physiology, as they will be working in direct contact with the body structures. It is also vital that they are aware of when and when not to treat a client and only operate within certain parameters.
The units are mandatory and should be taught concurrently to be examined concurrently.
Skeletal system, Muscular system, Skin, The Cell, Circulatory and Lymphatic Systems, Neurological Systems, Endocrine System, Respiratory System, Digestive System, Urinary System, Reproductive System.
If graduates take therapy qualifications in addition to the Anatomy and Physiology qualification, they can work on liners, health farms and health clubs.
Anatomy and Physiology is also part of the Gym Instruction and Aerobics qualifications along with other fitness training qualifications.
There are now several degree courses available in Complementary Therapies to which candidates may progress.
Each unit requires candidates to understand the structure, function and main diseases and disorders of each system.
Michael initially qualified as a massage therapist in 1991 and following further massage training now work using many styles: Sports, Relaxation, Remedial, and Thai Yoga Massage.
