    Huge waste of money!
  • Anatomy Made Easy!

    By Just Play for Enjoyment
    OK, anatomy is never easy. I have avoided science classes my entire life. But I’m in massage school now and have to take anatomy and advanced anatomy. I was really struggling, but with the Anatomy Mapp I have a great tool to help me learn. The testing in quizzing aspects of the muscles of different areas is fantastic! The individual muscles with the diagrams in the actions insertions and origins it’s simple to use and makes visualizing the muscles of breeze. I’m learning and mastering the material in a way that I thought was impossible. An excellent excellent tool!
  • Amazing Study Tool

    By PTA Student 1234
    This app has saved my life on multiple occasions! The app allows me to review material any time and anywhere. It’s super convenient to use, and beats lugging books around everywhere. This app is a god send to physical therapist assistant students everywhere. Thanks for being awesome!
  • Excellent reference

    A fellow student brought it to our attention nine years ago. Still so useful !
  • This is the exact same as the AMTA app

    By Zashrien
    AMTA gives the blue-themed version of this app to registered members and students. If your massage school is worth its weight then they probably registered you for AMTA don’t waste the $15 without checking first. If you’re just studying muscles for the heck of it, this is a fine app to learn from. Spend away!

  • Trail Guide to the Body is fantastic and easy to use.

    By Plasmadimensions33
    This app is essential to my practice of myotherapy.
  • Highly useful app for learning muscle and bone anatomy.

    By Spiral646
    I first purchased this app back in 2012 when I started massage school, and I still find it useful to this day. This app is great for studying and learning the bones and muscles, and it is great for refreshing your memory too. It has a fun feature where it tells you to locate the bone or muscle and you have to click on it and get it right. When looking at individual muscles, you can swipe the screen and it "flips" the card and on the back it says the origin, insertion, action, innervation, and location. I use it regularly so I don't forget my anatomy, and sometimes I use it as a visual reference for my clients so they can see what muscles I am talking about too. This app has never really glitched on me, and I have been using it on my iPhones and iPads over the years. This app is excellent for helping one study for the Mblex exam too.
