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 body wide 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. Written in a style that makes it easy to understand and apply, Anatomy Trains provides an accessible and comprehensive explanation of the anatomy and function of the myofascial system in the body.

Key features:

  • 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
