Read this fascinating exchange between Tom and one of our followers on Facebook about working with Scheuermann’s kyphosis. Jacob: I’m a personal trainer and I love your work! Any advice for an athlete with Scheuermann’s kyphosis? I’ve been attempting lots of different thoracic rotations/extensions. Strengthening and lengthening the hamstrings seems to mitigate pain. One issue is… Read more
Hi Anatomy Trains, I work as a masseur (clinical massage therapist) in Europe for a big healthcare provider, 20 minute sessions, 90 sessions a week.

Holly Clemens has put together this review of the Jan Wilkes’ systematic review of the Anatomy Trains. It’s great to see some scientific support – of course not unequivocal, but what is? – for the myofascial connections we work with every day. – Tom The original review article – What is Evidence-Based About Myofascial Chains:… Read more
Back work on a bench is a characteristic ‘move’ in Ida Rolf’s work, and we continue that tradition here at KMI. By sitting the client on the bench and working progressively down, we can get a variety of work done on the spine in a safe and educational manner. Although this is a speeded-up montage,… Read more
This webinar traces the 12 myofascial meridians, giving a guide to palpate the individual muscles, muscle groups, and fascial structures in each of the kinetic chains of myofascial strain transmission. See and feel just how the fascial lines link up the muscles in the body.
Myofascial Meridians A revolution in Soft-Tissue Patterning
Anatomy Trains® maps the ‘anatomy of connection’ – the whole-body fascial and myofascial linkages. Anatomy Trains links the individual muscles into functional complexes, each with a specific anatomy and ‘meaning’. Anatomy Trains leads to new holistic strategies for health professionals, movement teachers, and athletes to resolve complex postural and movement patterns.
Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians gives you a new understanding of whole-body patterning in posture and function – the interplay of movement and stability. Understanding the ‘Superficial Back Line’ as a whole gives insights into hamstring problems that you cannot get from considering the hamstrings alone. The ‘Spiral Line’ shows how to resolve rotational compensations in a way that no analysis of any single muscle can give.
