Human Anatomy

This course fulfills the State of Hawaii requirements for a general overview course in human anatomy, physiology and kinesiology. All body systems are covered, with special attention to those most relevant to massage therapy, the muscular, skeletal and nervous systems.

This class is designed to teach you more than just factual knowledge about body parts, but rather a functional appreciation of how and why the body systems are integrated as they are. Classes involve an effective combination of teaching methods (including lecture, discussion, palpation and movement) that maximize interest and real-world learning.

Class sessions will be held 9:00-12:00 & 2:00-5:00. Wednesdays and Sundays are days off.

Required Texts:

- A/P/K Course Manual (available for purchase on 1st day of class)
- Trail Guide to the Body, 4th Edition - Andrew R. Biel
- Anatomy Coloring Book - Wynn Kapit and Elson
