APP3 (the nervous system) is third in a series of courses introducing the structure and function of the human body, as well as disorders, diseases and conditions to which we adapt. Indications and contraindications for massage are covered for conditions common in a massage therapy practice. Information is based mainly on Western scientific perspectives, although we will also discuss “alternative” and complementary ways to recognize, maintain and restore health and wellness related to the topics we study. Students will explore and experience anatomy and physiology from the perspective of the nervous system. . All APP courses share required textbooks. APP 1 through APP 3 must be taken in succession.
