When I qualified as a massage therapist way back in 1989, I soon realised that the anatomy and physiology course that I had taken to complete my qualification was simply not enough to give me the confidence to work with the public and all the diseases and disorders they presented me with.
I went back to college and signed up for a decent anatomy and physiology course at a university at night school and set up my massage practice in 1990.
I loved massage so much that I started teaching it and began a school of massage that lasted over 20 years. I made sure the anatomy and physiology course content was of a high standard and taught well.
The wonderful Jane Johnson who teaches my anatomy course was originally one of my students. She took to anatomy and physiology like a duck to water trained in massage and sports massage and then physiology.
I don't remember exactly how or when I asked Jane to teach on our anatomy and physiology courses but she was such an inspiring and effective teacher that she was always incredibly popular with our students.
In 2008 I hired a camera man and editor to film Jane teaching a live class over 6 days to create the outstanding ecourse that I am still able to offer you today.
Ours was one of the first elearning anatomy and physiology e-courses, it has been remarkable successful yet no one to date has copied our format and gone for the rather boring reading off the screen method instead. The most frequent comment is "I feel as though I am at the back of the class"
The E-Course leads up to the ITEC Level 3 Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathologies for Complementary Therapies. The pass mark is 50%. Our success rate is at time of printing 97%.
