Course Description

This is a systemic Anatomy and Physiology program that seeks to establish an understanding of the human body as an internal experience rather than abstract data to be memorized. Discussions include the physiology of musculoskeletal pathology, maintenance of health through prevention, and an introduction to the principles of nutrition. Program material includes the development of tissues from a cellular level to organ systems with special emphasis on the relationship between muscle, nervous and connective tissues. Emphasis is also given to the physiology of emotional experience and the role of belief systems in the maintenance of chronic tension. A variety of innovative teaching tools are employed including visualization, prepared program notes, and noncompetitive testing to provide immediate feedback and to facilitate understanding.
