Anatomy Trains, 3rd Edition

Anatomy Trains, 3rd Edition

Myofascial Meridians for Manual and Movement Therapists

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.

""Anatomy Trains" is certainly not devoid of personality. It is this personality combined with a non-scientific writing style, yet supported clearly with scientific references, that makes or breaks the book as a reader. If approached with an open mind then there is a clear working theory that flows throughout the text and even now in its 3rd edition, the book appears novel and rogue. [...] There is a clinical relevance to this book that could change the thinking of most physiotherapists and encourage a more "whole body" approach to therapy."
