Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology – Foundation Course - Online - Start any time

Our Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathology Foundation course is now an online course.

The aim is to provide a course with greater relevance and understanding of how the body works in holistic terms, rather than mere dry facts (as in so many APP courses).

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 complete this course (or a suitable equivalent). This can be done either before the Cranio-Sacral Training or in conjunction with the Cranio-Sacral training.

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 Structure:

  • The course consists of ten packs and is presented as a seven month programme. You can start any time you wish, and complete the programme in your own time.
  • Every three to four weeks, you will receive a comprehensive Powerpoint presentation to work through in your own time.  The course is spread over seven months to allow time for self-study and proper absorption of the material. Participants may choose to complete the course in a shorter or longer time to suit individual needs.
  • A book list will be provided, with specific recommendations to support your studies.
  • With each pack, you will receive a quiz or question paper covering the work from the previous pack, for self-assessment.
  • There will be an online written exam at the end of the course, whenever you are ready, successful completion of which is required in order to gain a certificate and to fulfil the graduation requirements for CCST.
  • No attendance is required.
  • No previous knowledge or experience is necessary.
  • Group interaction and communication with other students on the course will also be encouraged, in order to stimulate interest and learning, and to make the course easier and more enjoyable, as online courses can feel quite isolated.
