Section 1: The Indispensable Role of Anatomy and Physiology in Manual Therapy

A&P stands at the core of massage therapy, acting as the foundational pillars for effective treatment. A nuanced understanding of the body’s structure and function, spanning the musculoskeletal, nervous, and circulatory systems, equips future massage therapists to deliver targeted treatments that cater to their clients’ specific needs.

Without a solid grasp of A&P, massage therapists risk not only ineffective treatments but also potential harm to their clients. Our immersive textbooks help students attain a comprehensive understanding of the body’s structure and function, empowering them to provide safe and proficient care to their clients.
