Understanding the role of fascia in healthy movement and postural distortion is of vital importance to bodyworkers and movement therapists.
Anatomy Trains: Myofascial Meridians for Manual and Movement Therapists presents a unique 'whole systems' view of myofascial/locomotor anatomy in which the bodywide connections among the muscles within the fascial net are described in detail for the first time.
Using the metaphor of railway or train lines, Myers explains how patterns of strain communicate through the myofascial 'webbing', contributing to postural compensation and movement stability.
Anatomy Trains is written and presented in a style that allows this new information on the myofascial system to be easily absorbed by a wide range of readers: from the interested student, athlete or client to the most experienced therapist.
Professional groups that will find the book useful and relevant to their practice include all manual and movement therapists:
- Massage therapists
- Structural integration practitioners
- Cranio-sacral therapists
- Yoga teachers and therapists
- Physical therapists
- Athletic trainers
- Dance and movement teachers
Includes full-colour illustrations of 11 myofascial meridians and the rules for discovering other meridians.
Uses numerous two-colour charts and drawings to detail the muscular and fascial structures involved in the meridians.
presents information on assessment of structural and movement patterns and gives related applications to manual therapy and movement education.
Provides a selection of techniques from the library of structural integration. includes an introduction to the fascial system as a whole, with new points-of-view and new research findings on the fascial system's responses.
Offers a fun approach to learning essential structural anatomy, comparing the connective tissue system to a railway network.
Therapist Recommends: Essential for anyone drawn to fascia work.
