Anatomy, Physiology, & Pathology

The course teaches Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology (AP&P) of all body systems. This unique course references both the traditional western AP&P model and emphasises the knowledge needed for energy workers: the cellular matrix, the connective tissue as a communication system and more. It is delivered via online learning and, where applicable, consolidation in class time. This course is part of the Level 4 Shiatsu Diploma in Shiatsu (RQF) but can also be taken as a stand-alone course.
