Histology: Tissue Matters|
- None scheduled.
Contact Jim Donak for more information.
When working with an individual we are connecting with, communicating with, and influencing their tissues. Few however have an understanding of what it is they are actually influencing and how.
A strong knowledge of the tissue level of organization of the body is valuable as it provides a more refined means of directing intent, visualizing what is being palpated, understanding injury repair, and working with the body.
This class teaches the basic characteristics of the body's tissues; how they develop, behave, and heal. The anatomy and physiology of the 4 types of tissue are explored and clinical applications are put into context.
