Designed to help bodyworkers “see” into the body and be more effective as therapeutic practitioners, this class teaches students how to “build a body” by providing an overview of cells, tissues, organs, the major body systems and how they relate to each another. Students will learn about the benefits, physiological effects and contraindications of massage. All of this is taught through lively interaction, lecture, games, and movement in a creative learning environment.

Together with Anatomy Bones and Muscles, this class is for bodyworkers completing Training Programs at the School, for California State certification and for NCBTMB certification. Any serious bodyworker will find it to be an essential part in her or his learning.
