- The latest edition of this 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, 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. 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-- Publisher's description.
