Clinically Applied Anatomy for Cupping Therapists PLUS live Cadaver Dissection Class

Be guided through the human body in our detailed study of clinically applied anatomy. This comprehensive clinical education programme allows learners to become familiar with all human structures and anatomical landmarks. Ideal for practitioners who have hands on experience with patients but wish to expand their knowledge and skill set to appreciate the human body with the same level of understanding as qualified clinicians. With a blended learning format, the course allows students to study over ten hours of clinical anatomy lectures via distance learning in the leisure of their own homes. This study is then cemented with a live dissection class taking place at Guys Hospital, Kings College London on the 22 of March 2018 (This is a 5 minute walk from London Bridge tube station). The class will allow students to get hands on with real cadaver specimens specifically prepared for demonstration purposes. This rare opportunity provides cupping therapists and Hijama practitioners the chance to elevate their level of knowledge and practise and set them apart from a wide array of novice therapists flooding the market today.

Is it permissible for muslims to do this course?
From our sources of Islamic guidance there is no issue with using cadaver specimens to further ones knowledge in this context. We will not be dissecting but will be viewing the specimens already prepared for medical students. It is not common for non medics to have the chance study at this level and we are opening the horizons and avenues of learning for our practitioners to raise their level. Obviously those who are not comfortable with it need not attend but if you are interested but not sure where it stands Islamicly then please refer to your sources of religious guidance in order to make your decision.
