Ningaloo Massage & Health supports professional development amongst its Therapists. Keeping up to date with anatomy and physiology, Remedial Massage Therapist Tania Knight was able to attend a wet lab.
This experience allows Therapists to view dissected cadavers to see, feel and trace the anatomical features of the upper and lower body.
A medical cadaver is the body of a person who donated their remains to science. Handling of a human body allows a detailed examination of the tissues and their myriad connections.This enables visual identification of parts of the skeleton, nerves, muscles, key bony landmarks and muscle attachments.
Extra lucky, a specimen Tania was handing had received a hip replacement which enabled a clear view of the articulation and artificial parts in the hip joint.
