CNI College Massage Therapy Students Experience Plastination & Cadaver Lab

Orange, CA (PRWEB) July 10, 2009 -- Recently, students attended a lab at a local junior college's plastination and cadaver lab. This experience during the Anatomy 200 module of their Massage Therapy program at CNI College prepared them for a deeper understanding of the bones, muscles and joints of the body which are the main focus in this module.

The plastination lab exhibited numerous dissected portions of the body in a preserved form. The students had the opportunity to pick up, view and really get hands on with the plentiful offerings. One of the items included the entire head and upper torso of a female plastinated in sections similar to the sliced view an MRI gives of the body. Students commented that it was interesting to see that organs and structures where not quite where they thought they would be according to their books and charts.

Then after taking some time to review the muscles in the dissection lab with plastic representations of the body, it was time to glove up and head to the cadaver lab. The students viewed three cadavers dissected in different ways. One lying face down helped the students to see the origins, insertions and enervations of the major and some minor muscles on the entire back of the body. One student was surprised to see that on this particular cadaver the rhomboid muscle was quite atrophied.

Another of the cadavers was dissected to best represent an understanding of the organs, particularly of the thoracic and abdominal cavities. The students had the opportunity to hold the lungs from this cadaver who had obviously not smoked, as the lungs were quite healthy looking. The last of the three cadavers was lying face up and demonstrated the muscles of the anterior of the body through dissection. The face was extraordinarily dissected and showed that this particular cadaver had very little orbicularis oculi, the muscle around the eye, which probably meant the cadaver was of Asian or Polynesian descent.

The students were very excited by this outing and talked about it for some time afterward. This experience was invaluable when it comes to truly understanding what is happening under the skin that is being touched by a massage professional.
