 Anatomy and Physiology  Course Level 3 – (A&P)

Teacher, Craig Thorn BSc (Hons) in Biology and a PGCE is a specialist in providing individual help in anatomy and physiology (A&P).

The Bodyharmonics Anatomy & Physiology (A&P) course places emphasis on the maintenance of balance and energy flow in the body’s systems & the musculo-skeletal system.

Our anatomy & physiology courses (A&P) are specifically structured to make them practical and relevant to the Tui Na & Acupuncture courses being taught.  Cheap online A &P courses will not give you the vital hands-on experience that this course offers, enabling you to palpate the body to confidently detect pathologies  of musculo-skeletal system.

We have been teaching successful courses for many years. Over time we have fine- tuned our teaching methods to make them very effective in helping students become highly proficient health practitioners.
The course is accredited by Acupuncture-Acutherapy Council (AcuC) and approved by Holistic Insurance which leads to full insurance with either Tui Na, Thai massage or acupuncture.

Frequently asked questions about the Anatomy and Physiology course by interested students:

  • The Anatomy & Physiology Course (A&P course) can overlap with module 1 course – Yes

  • Is it at all possible to overlap simultaneously Modules 2 & 3 – Yes, if you have enough time.  Both modules 2 & 3 cover the same TCM theory, but in more depth for Module 3.  Mod 2 includes all the advanced Tui Na techniques & Mod 3 – you start needling
  • There is only one Module 3 – Acupuncture course per year. The next one will start June/July.
