Our physiotherapist Jane Johnson is passionate about sharing her knowledge and making learning as fun and interesting as possible, but with learning the origins, insertions and actions of muscles, learning the good old fashioned way "parrot fashion" is required.
The origin of the muscle is where it starts and attaches to bone. The insertion is where it finishes and attacheds. Muscles always move from origin to insertion and have multiple actions.
This is the list of muscles covered on our anatomy and physiology course and the most important ones for body workers such as massage therapists to learn.

"I think your system is fantastic, and is so much easier than being in class, mainly because it's possible to pause, take your time, and re watch. I find the tutor extremely engaging, more so than just reading typed words on a page. The system that I have watched has helped me recognise areas of weakness, and affirm areas of knowledge."
