When taking classes at our massage school, many students are pleasantly surprised at the depth of knowledge expected of them. As 2004 East West College graduate Nancy Failla explains, “When I came to East West, I had no idea how hard the anatomy and physiology classes were going to be. I actually thought it was mostly going to be massage and hands on. It was surprising, but in a good way, because the curriculum was so intense and so thorough that I felt like I was in premed school.” As a result of these high academic standards, many East West College grads find they are preferentially hired after completing our Portland massage therapy program.
That also means that East West students must work hard to succeed in their anatomy and physiology classes. Today we’re presenting a few online study tools that students in massage therapy schools can use to bolster knowledge learned in class and in textbooks.
