Course Description

Whether you wish to study for your own personal growth or to enhance your career skills, this course is designed for people that want to learn basic human anatomy and physiology without the formality of having to attend a classroom. It is a distance learning course whereby all of the study questions and tutoring are done online to allow you to study at your own pace, any time and anywhere that suits you. There are no prerequisites for this course as this is an entry level anatomy and physiology course. The duration of the course is determined by how much time you dedicate to your studies each week and how quickly you absorb the material, as there is no set length, but we approximate that it should take between 2-5 months if you study 2-4 hours each week. Upon successful completion of the Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology course, you will be issued a certificate.

Similar to shiatsu and Thai massage, Raynor massage does not require proficiency in anatomical and physiological terms as emphasized in Western countries. Rather massage techniques are applied to merdians, sien lines or Raynor Bands that are found throughout the body. Each of these massage modalities require a massage therapist to tune into the natural rhythms of the body, to feel subtle energy channels and understand the balance of elements in the body.  However, introductory knowledge of anatomy and physiology can only enhance your massage skills. We highly recommend this course for our past or previous students who wish to:

  • gain insight as to why certain areas of the body are prone to getting tight or injured
  • learn the layout of bones, muscles  and organs to reduce the possibility of injuries
  • have a better understanding of the abdominal cavity so they give better abdominal massage
  • communicate efficiently and effectively with other healthcare professionals
  • to enhance your wholistic education

Learning Outcomes

You will have a greater understanding of the intricacies and interconnections of the human body and the sum of its parts. This awareness of anatomy and physiology will provide you with a good foundation to make optimal decisions on diet, posture, mobility, and overall health and function.
