Feeling Your Way Through the LinesNew Webinar!
See and feel just how the Anatomy Trains fascial lines link up the muscles in the body. Includes self-myofascial release, tools and palpation, and the lines applied to yoga!
Join us for the 23rd KMI training, starting in August in beautiful coastal Maine. Our classroom sits on a hill overlooking the forest, just half a mile from a salt-water river for swimming or paddling.Learn More
Read this exchange between Tom and a follower about his pectus excuvatum. Hello Tom, I have pectus excuvatum. I’ve read your 3D book (Body3) and half way through Anatomy Trains. Those books are great and I will likely need to read them three more times to fully absorb everything. Because of your work I have a… Read more
Dear Tom, Your research and sharing has affected my life beyond measure. In your research of the very important fascia, have you witnessed either in cadavers or while using MFR on people, that some of us seem to have more adhesive, or drier fascia than others? My fascia can be so “stuck” that cups are… Read more
When we are working in the myofascia, we are often looking for muscular events – trigger points, hypertonicity, hypotonicity, and ‘knots’ in general. When we focus particularly on the fascial structure, our appreciation must shift toward the fascial fabric itself, instead of the fascial fabric spun more loosely within the muscle. Try this exercise to… Read more
Thanks to Anatomy Trains teacher Lauri Nemetz for putting together this post. Pictures, unless noted, courtesy Lauri Nemetz. When grapes turn to wine, they long for our ability to change. When stars wheel around the North Pole, they are longing for our growing consciousness. Wine got drunk with us, not the other way. The body… 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.
