Massage & Myotherapy Australia and the University of Western Australia have joined together to provide an Anatomy Wet Lab on all aspects of musculoskeletal anatomy including action, attachments, innervation and relevant pathologies.

In these anatomy courses we will also briefly cover some aspects of visceral anatomy and its orientation with particular muscles and nerves.

We are very lucky here at UWA to possess an incredible collection of prosections that allow you to learn in-depth anatomy and most importantly, anatomical variation.

The courses are arranged so that we cover the upper torso and limbs first and then focus on the lower torso and lower limb.  We always encourage students to actively participate by asking questions, and actually touching the prosections.  During the last half an hour of a course I like the students to explore different prosections on their own and use this time to consolidate their learning and ask any question that comes to mind.  It is a very open learning environment and is always a very enjoyable day!

This is a rare opportunity for Therapists in WA and one that should not be missed!

About the Lecturer: Janae Barnes

Janae has an undergraduate degree in Anatomy and Physiology from the University of Western Australia obtained in 2013.  She then went on to get an Honours degree in forensic anatomy and completed a graduate diploma in Forensic Anthropology in 2015.  As apart of her forensic anthropology degree She travelled to Venice and completed an archaeological fieldschool in which we recovered and analysed the remains of victims of the Black Death.  She began teaching anatomy to undergraduate anatomy and postgraduate medicine, podiatric and dental students in 2016 and have covered all areas of visceral and musculoskeletal anatomy.  She also tutor various remedial massage students in relevant anatomy.  Since 2014 She has been a laboratory technician at UWA and her role is to prepare anatomical prosections for the study of anatomy (these are the ones you will be learning from!)

She is currently halfway through a podiatric medicine degree, which I will complete at the end of next year.
