Practical Anatomy & Physiology Workshops Taught in 6 Modules Over a Two Year Period; (2011-12)
In this new and exciting Anatomy Course we are inviting students to get very practical anatomical skills that will benefit them as bodyworkers - therefore this course is obligatory for anyone on the Rosen Method Practitioner Training and at the same time open to students with a general interest in the basic principles of Anatomy and Physiology. It may also suit other Bodywork Professionals that would like to update their existing skills or repeat some elements that they have forgotten as a way of Continuing Education. There is an application process to join the course.
Modules can be taken as free standing parts. For each module there will be compulsory and recommended pre-reading. Surface bony anatomy, the muscles: origin, insertion and function and associated disorders for the anatomical area studied will be covered.
Due to the practical nature of the workshops the class will be working with non-toxic crayons on the body occassionally, and therefore it is necessary to remove clothing down to underwear, same applies when there are excercises for palpation of muscles and bony structure. Please contact the school before registering for the course should you have any concerns about this.
