Description

The latest edition of this highly successful volume presents a unique understanding of the role of fascia in healthy movement and postural distortion which is of vital importance to bodyworkers and movement therapists worldwide. Fully updated with the latest scientific research, the book presents a unique 'whole systems' view of myofascial/locomotor anatomy in which the body-wide connections among the muscles within the fascial net are described in detail. Using the metaphor of railway or train lines, the book explains how patterns of strain communicate through the myofascial 'webbing', contributing to movement stability and postural compensation.Written in the clear and accessible style that characterised the success of previous editions, the book guides the reader in the effective application of the Anatomy Trains theory via the use of abundant diagrams, photographs and educational film sequences on an associated website (www.myersmyofascialmeridians.com). Anatomy Trains: Myofascial  Meridians for Manual and Movement Therapists will be ideal for all those professionals who have an interest in human movement: massage therapists, structural integration practitioners, craniosacral therapists,  yoga teachers, osteopaths, manual therapists, physiotherapists, athletic trainers, personal trainers, dance and movement teachers, chiropractors and  acupuncturists.

"I approached this book with familiarity due to its reputation and prevalence in modern literature and courses, yet it is a book I have not read until now, it's 3rd edition.

"Anatomy trains" describes the whole-body myofascial meridians that run at varying lengths and depths through the body. the metaphor relates to railway tracks, stopping at stations (bony landmarks) and occasionally becoming "de-railed" with individual variances. The metaphors don't stop with this books title. The preface is very arty and in places, cheesy. The reader can easily get lost in the analogies given as it deviates away from traditional scientific books. If it's reputation didn't precede it, I may well have stopped here.
