Musculoskeletal Anatomy


This  course  is  the  heart  of  the  program.  Utilizing the critically acclaimed textbook/
workbook, Trailguide to the Body, students palpate all the major muscles of the body as
well as their bony attachments. In class we will learn muscles actions and attachments
through the workbook exercises, cadaver videos,  palpation  direction  videos, creation  of  muscles  in  clay  and  drawing the muscles on classmates. Palpating the muscles on all their classmates of varying body-types  increases  proficiency  in  the  skill  most  sought  after  in
any massage therapist. Communication skills are also developed to ensure the depth of touch is of a therapeutic nature.
