The Digestive Tract Dissected

Course Date

January 1, 1970


Course Location

Guy’s campus of King’s College University

Join our One Day Class specifically for Colonic Hydrotherapists


Prepare For An Unusual And Memorable Day of CPD!


Advance your Anatomy by Leaps and Bounds… in only one day…




By mixing a little theory review, with a dash of embryology and an afternoon of cadaver exploration!



What’s in Store:


  • a whizz-through lecture on the basic anatomy of the digestive tract – ‘the theory’ before we get to the specimens (a useful reminder)
  • a fascinating presentation from Barbara Webb, a senior lecturer at Kings, on the embryology of the digestive system so we can understand how everything got to where it is.
  • an afternoon in the dissection lab, the nub of the day, where you get the chance to see and feel, examine and explore real, pre-dissected structures of the digestive tract. Seeing them in true 3-d, in relationship to each other and at different depths of dissection, deepens your understanding in a way little else could, and with a little supportive theory the learning will stay with you.
  • lots of opportunity to ask questions and clarify your understanding which cannot help but feed back into your work with clients.



This course will be presented by Caroline Barrow at
the London Bridge, Guy’s campus of King’s College University.

What Others Have Said:



“Just a quick email to say thank you for today, it truly was an amazing experience and it took my basic understanding of anatomy to another level. Your knowledge is incredible, I was quite apprehensive about the day, but I found your informal style of teaching really helped me relax and made the day enjoyable.” 


“Oh, what a wonderful day we had today. It was just SO amazing! I seem to have a whole different relationship with my own body and I was seeing people differently when I went back out on the street. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Caroline was really terrific and helped us all feel so at ease with the whole process.” 



“Thank you for the most amazing experience at the dissection lab. A very rare and special treat. It’s put anatomy up on a different scale of awesomeness!”


(and this is one of my favorites!) 

Yes, yes! ‘Life’ is different today!
