Living Anatomy: How many muscles do you need to hold an apple?
A tongue-in-cheek Anatomy Refresher for Massage Therapists and Body Workers.

We hear so many qualified massage therapists talk about their anatomy knowledge needing an injection of life. This course is full of life life life!

Bring Anatomy alive.

The Shoulder Girdle:
Looseness or tightness in the complex shoulder joint can cause pain and dysfunction.
(Re-)Acquaint yourself with the 17 (!) muscles that attach to the scapula, learn which main muscles move the shoulder, and how to find them.

Sticking with the theme, we will also look at the arm and hand muscles that you need to hold (and eat*) an apple.

(*… as as in putting it towards your mouth, as the muscles of mastication are a whole different ballgame!

Great for massage therapists and bodyworkers who want to brush up or deepen their knowledge, loose the fear of anatomical terms, or want to have a bit of fun in the process.

Learning these muscles will be really useful to help you determine which ones may be causing a problem, and not also give you credibility with your clients but also a sound basis for applying advanced techniques. N.B.: This short course is separate from our certificate and diploma courses, but can be used as an add-on.

Course tutors: Eva Weltermann and Craig Foden, who are also tutoring on our sports massage and deep tissue massage certificates, as well as on our Advanced Techniques Diploma Course, which leads to a level 4 qualification in Sports & Remedial Massage.
