This course also provides detailed aspects of a number of the physiological functions that occur in the human body.

7. Shiatsu: Awaken The Healing Power Of Your Hands

The Shiatsu Practitioner exerts firm rhythmic pressure to the body using thumbs or fingers on a sequence of points designed to awaken the meridians. Shiatsu incorporates creative use of the whole body and includes stretching and leverage.

Tension is viewed as a stagnation of the bodily flows along the nerves, meridians, lymphatic ducts and blood vessels. Lack of exercise, poor diet, alcohol, drugs and stress all contribute significantly to this stagnation. These physical tensions or blocked emotions lock the homeostatic mechanism of the body, restricting proper functioning. Blockages or distortions can cause either an overflow of energy, "Jitsu" (excess) or an underactive condition "Kyo" (empty).

The pressure points or "tsubos" are reflections of the internal functioning of the body systems, and are used for diagnostic as well as treatment purposes. Treatment focuses not only on relieving pain and discomfort but also on responding to tensions and toxicities in the body before they develop into illnesses.

8. Yoga in Health: Learn The Foundation Of All Yoga

Yoga is at last is coming into its own in the Western world. After many years of being dismissed as a bizarre cult attractive only to eccentrics, it is today recognized as a fundamental art and skill.

This course is primarily concerned with:

  • Asana - Postures
  • Pranayama - Breathing Exercises and Control of the Breath

The above topics are the foundation of all Yoga without which you cannot hope to gain mastery over yourself and learn the secrets of the Universe

9. Yoga: Learn The Fundamentals Of Yoga

Some techniques will bring calmness, others will encourage the flow of energy, all with the benefit in bringing awareness to the body. This course will complement other natural healing and counselling courses.

Anatomy and Physiology - Cells and Tissues

  • Cells
  • A small mass of protoplasm containing a nucleus
  • All living things contain cells
  • Simplest organized unit of living matter
  • Can maintain itself at a higher energy level than its surroundings, grow and reproduce
  • Cells are capable of:
  • Absorption of nourishment
  • Growth and repair
  • Reproduction by division
  • Excretion of waste products
  • Some cells have the power of movement
  • Protoplasm consists of:
  • Organic compound known as proteins
  • Fatty substances
  • Carbohydrates
  • Inorganic salts

  • In the centre of the cell protoplasm is the nucleus - controls its activity, is essential to life, growth and reproduction of the cell
  • Within the nucleus is the nucleo-protein - consists of minute threads called chromosomes
  • The human cell contains 46 chromosomes
  • When the cell divides, chromosomes split longitudinally - half of each chromosome goes into each new cell
  • This process is called mitosis
  • Chromosomes determine the sex of the foetus
  • Each chromosome consists of genes
  • The body is developed from female egg cells/ovum
  • Ovum is penetrated by the male cell - a new cell is formed called a zygote
  • The cell wall is semi-permeable, solutions pass in/out of the cell as required
  • The volume and composition of intracellular/extra cellular fluids must be kept constant
  • Diffusion
  • Osmosis
  • Filtration
  • Illustrative diagram
  • Tissue

Why do we Age?

  • Ageing
  • When a facial muscle contracts habitually it shortens – as there is no corresponding shortening of the overlying skin a line is produced
  • Occurs when cells are damaged by attacks from chemical particles - Free Radicles
  • Highly unstable, reactive molecules
  • Break bonds between collagen molecules
  • Results in weakened skin structure followed by wrinkles
  • Normal by-product of metabolism
  • Body has concentrations far exceeding amounts they can handle: U-V rays, smoke, alcohol, stress, air pollution
  • Cross-linking
  • Rate of increase of cell-damaging free radicles's reactions accelerate dramatically
  • Abilities to defuse/repair damage from free radicles lose steam
  • The more damage in your cells, the more the ageing process speeds up

Our Anatomy & Physiology course has been designed to provide a more in-depth understanding of the human body and the accompanying physiological process that allow for its optimal functioning.

As well as revisiting and expanding on some basic principles such as the skeletal and muscular system, this course provides detailed explanations of some more complex aspects of anatomy such as the heart, the brain and spinal cord and the autonomic nervous system.

This course also provides detailed aspects of a number of the physiological functions that occur in the human body.

7. Shiatsu: Awaken The Healing Power Of Your Hands

The Shiatsu Practitioner exerts firm rhythmic pressure to the body using thumbs or fingers on a sequence of points designed to awaken the meridians. Shiatsu incorporates creative use of the whole body and includes stretching and leverage.

Tension is viewed as a stagnation of the bodily flows along the nerves, meridians, lymphatic ducts and blood vessels. Lack of exercise, poor diet, alcohol, drugs and stress all contribute significantly to this stagnation. These physical tensions or blocked emotions lock the homeostatic mechanism of the body, restricting proper functioning. Blockages or distortions can cause either an overflow of energy, "Jitsu" (excess) or an underactive condition "Kyo" (empty).

The pressure points or "tsubos" are reflections of the internal functioning of the body systems, and are used for diagnostic as well as treatment purposes. Treatment focuses not only on relieving pain and discomfort but also on responding to tensions and toxicities in the body before they develop into illnesses.

8. Yoga in Health: Learn The Foundation Of All Yoga

Yoga is at last is coming into its own in the Western world. After many years of being dismissed as a bizarre cult attractive only to eccentrics, it is today recognized as a fundamental art and skill.

This course is primarily concerned with:

  • Asana - Postures
  • Pranayama - Breathing Exercises and Control of the Breath

The above topics are the foundation of all Yoga without which you cannot hope to gain mastery over yourself and learn the secrets of the Universe

Anatomy and Physiology - Cells and Tissues

  • Cells
  • A small mass of protoplasm containing a nucleus
  • All living things contain cells
  • Simplest organized unit of living matter
  • Can maintain itself at a higher energy level than its surroundings, grow and reproduce
  • Cells are capable of:
  • Absorption of nourishment
  • Growth and repair
  • Reproduction by division
  • Excretion of waste products
  • Some cells have the power of movement
  • Protoplasm consists of:
  • Organic compound known as proteins
  • Fatty substances
  • Carbohydrates
  • Inorganic salts
  • Water
  • In the centre of the cell protoplasm is the nucleus - controls its activity, is essential to life, growth and reproduction of the cell
  • Within the nucleus is the nucleo-protein - consists of minute threads called chromosomes
  • The human cell contains 46 chromosomes
  • When the cell divides, chromosomes split longitudinally - half of each chromosome goes into each new cell
  • This process is called mitosis
  • Chromosomes determine the sex of the foetus
  • Each chromosome consists of genes
  • The body is developed from female egg cells/ovum
  • Ovum is penetrated by the male cell - a new cell is formed called a zygote
  • The cell wall is semi-permeable, solutions pass in/out of the cell as required
  • The volume and composition of intracellular/extra cellular fluids must be kept constant
  • Diffusion
  • Osmosis
  • Filtration
  • Illustrative diagram
  • Tissue
  • Formed by cells packed or grouped together
  • Similar cells subject to the same laws of growth/ development
  • Several types of cells form tissues, depending on the function of that part of the body

  • Epithelium
  • Membrane which covers/lines an internal surface
  • Functions of the Epithelium are:
  • Movement
  • Connective
  • Cells connected by fibres with a greater or less supporting substance called a matrix

Why do we Age?

  • Ageing
  • When a facial muscle contracts habitually it shortens – as there is no corresponding shortening of the overlying skin a line is produced
  • Occurs when cells are damaged by attacks from chemical particles - Free Radicles

  • Break bonds between collagen molecules
  • Results in weakened skin structure followed by wrinkles
  • Normal by-product of metabolism
  • Body has concentrations far exceeding amounts they can handle: U-V rays, smoke, alcohol, stress, air pollution
