By Thomas W. Myers

Realizing the function of fascia in fit circulate and postural distortion is of important significance to bodyworkers and circulate therapists. Anatomy Trains: Myofascial Meridians for guide and stream Therapists offers a different 'whole structures' view of myofascial/locomotor anatomy within which the bodywide connections one of the muscle groups in the fascial web are defined intimately for the 1st time. utilizing the metaphor of railway or teach traces, Myers explains how styles of pressure converse throughout the myofascial 'webbing', contributing to postural reimbursement and flow balance. Written in a method that makes it effortless to appreciate and observe, Anatomy Trains presents an obtainable and accomplished rationalization of the anatomy and serve as of the myofascial procedure within the physique. The DVD ROM at the back of the ebook comprises video of innovations, Anatomy Trains-based dissections and laptop animations of the myofascial meridian lines.includes full-colour illustrations of eleven myofascial meridians and the foundations for locating different meridians.uses a number of complete color charts and drawings to element the muscular and fascial buildings excited by the meridians.presents details on review of structural and move styles and offers similar program to handbook treatment and move education.provides a variety of thoughts from the library of structural integration.includes an advent to the fascial process as a complete, with points-of-view and the newest examine findings at the fascial system's responses.offers a enjoyable method of studying crucial structural anatomy, evaluating the connective tissue approach to a railway network.video fabric at the accompanying DVD ROM to visually current the anatomy as defined within the book.Full color throughout.New layout and layout.140 New complete color figures together with dissection photos and patron photos.DVD ROM in again of book.A new appendices on 'Structural integration' and 'Myofascial meridians and oriental medicine'.New posters to be released concurrently.

Example text

These fibers are composed of amino acids that are assembled like Lego® in the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi complex of the fibroblast and then extruded into the intercellular space, where they form spontaneously (under conditions described below) into a variety of arrays. That the transparent cornea of the eye, the strong tendons of the foot, the spongy tissue of the lung, and the delicate membranes surrounding the brain are all made out of collagen tells us something about its utilitarian variety.

In other words, we must look globally, act locally, and then act globally to integrate our local remedies into the whole person's structure. In strategizing our therapy in this global-local-global way, we are acting exactly as the ECM itself does, as we will explore below in the section on tensegrity. Connective tissue cells produce ECM in response to local conditions, which in turn affect global 34-37 In order to build a new picture of the ECM acting as a whole, and with these prefatory concepts in place, we are now ready to frame our particular introduction to fascia within three specific but interconnected ideas: • physiologically by looking at it as one of the 'holistic communicating systems'; • embryologically through seeing its 'double bag' arrangement; • geometrically through comparing it to a 'tensegrity' structure.

It is to the nature of these intercellular elements that we now turn our attention. The dramatis personae of the connective tissue elements is a short list, given that we are not going to explore the chemistry of its many minor variations. There are three basic types of fibers: collagen, elastin, and reticulin (Fig. 8). Reticulin is a very fine fiber, a kind of immature collagen that predominates in the embryo but is largely replaced by collagen in the adult. Elastin, as its name implies, is employed in areas such as the ear, skin, or particular ligaments where elasticity is required.
