This course provides a solid foundation for practitioners of Complementary Medicine, as well as covering some of the more common diseases of the major body systems.
The study of the structure (anatomy) of the human body and the functions (physiology) of its various parts is vital for understanding the changes that can take place when disease disrupts the normal processes.
Home Assignments and Individual Projects are an integral part of the Course.
The course is run over eight full weekends to give you time to practice and study between sessions. The first two weekends are closer together so that you can learn enough practical routine to go away and start practising. The remaining weekends are approximately every 5 weekends as we find that this is the gap that works best for most people.
Class sizes are limited to ensure that each student received the individual attention they reuire to help them learn and succeed.
