The five courses in the APP series offer an integrative approach to establishing a strong foundation in anatomy, physiology, and pathology. By combining all three disciplines, students assimilate knowledge of structure, function, and dysfunction in a single learning environment. The application of these concepts to the practice of massage, as well as the effects of massage, are emphasized. Students also learn and use anatomical terminology, health and wellness concepts, and assessment tools. All APP courses share required textbooks.
