Helpful terms for Emily's "Intro to Healing" series



Terms for Emily's "Intro to Healing" class.
Emily Klik will be leading a 10 week series about healing called Intro to Healing.
She will be using many of the physical terms (listed to the right) frequently through the series.
(mainly the cranial bones, sutures, parts of dural membranes, parts of brain, diaphragms.

For the muscles and bones... she will use most of these terms, but not all.
What is more helpful than knowing the names... is knowing the major muscle groups and how they work biomechanically.

While it is not mandatory to know these terms, your learning experience will be more fulfilling if you are at least familiar with them.
If you are not able to learn these terms, Emily will go over them in the first lesson.
No need to freak out :)
- Namaste!
