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 from 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm on January 28, 30, February 4, 6 & 11. Class sessions will also be held on February 13, 18, 20, 25, 27, March 4, 6, 11, 13, 18 & 20 from 9am-11am.
