Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology – Foundation Course

This course is presented in a lively, stimulating and inspiring manner, with an emphasis on practical understanding of the human body in holistic terms, rather than mere theoretical learning.

“Martin obviously has an excellent level of knowledge and is inspiring to listen to”.

“Receiving the complete PowerPoint presentation each weekend is SO helpful for studying”.

“Martin is very good at making the subject interesting and he makes learning fun”.

The purpose of the course is to provide a firm foundation in anatomy, physiology and pathology in preparation for attendance of the full professional training in Cranio-Sacral Therapy. The course is also suitable for practitioners in a wide range of other alternative disciplines. The course includes Pathology (an area not covered in depth on the majority of Anatomy and Physiology courses).

Those without a previous background in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology will need to attend this course (or a suitable equivalent). This can be done either before the Cranio-Sacral Training or in conjunction with the first year of the Two-Year Course.

The course consists of seven weekends from October to May with homestudy and coursework between weekends. Successful completion of the final exam entitles students to a Certificate and eligibility to attend the Cranio-Sacral Therapy Training.

Course Content:

The course will cover the Anatomy, Physiology and common Pathology of all the major systems within the body, including:

  • Cell Structure and Cell Physiology

  • Histology - Tissue Types

  • the Skeletal System

  • Arthrology - the study of joints

  • the Muscular System

  • the Nervous System

  • the Cardio-Vascular System

  • the Lymphatic System

  • the Respiratory System

  • the Gastro-Intestinal System

  • the Endocrine System

  • the Urinary System

  • the Reproductive System

Course Material:

PowerPoint presentations are provided to each student, covering the material for each weekend. Visual aids including PowerPoint presentations, charts, skulls, skeletons and other anatomical models will be used to assist a clear visual and practical understanding of the material.

Booklist:

A booklist will be provided, and specific references to required and recommended text books are designed to assist you in your studies.

Assessment:

Progress will be monitored through short written tests at each stage of the course. Final assessment will be based on these tests, together with two projects and the final exam.

Exam:

There is an exam at the end of the course, both theoretical and practical, successful completion of which is required in order to gain a certificate and to fulfil the entry requirements for CCST.
