“Seeing is touch at a distance” said Ida Rolf. In this video series, learn to BodyRead your clients’ postural patterns in terms of the myofascial meridians. This is a progressive skill that will serve you every day, make your work more efficient and long-lasting – and you will never be bored at airports again!

Tom Myers gives you the benefit of his 40 years’ experience seeing the relationships within the skeleton, soft-tissue, and motor patterns. Using many examples, we will go through the elements in each line, and put it all together in useful tips and measurements, coupled with protocols to undo the patterns and restore free and full movement.

    Excellent work on both the standing and walking cases. Very detailed standing cases. However, I would have liked for Tom to explain in more detail the reasons for his assessments on each client including the soft tissue assessments. The text was very helpful on the walking cases. I have not viewed the webinars so perhaps more information is included there. Otherwise, fabulous detailed work everywhere!

    The body reading webinar is very organized, concise, and applicable. Thomas Myers delineated the relationship of posture, skeletal system and facial lines. I am really glad I took this class. I can’t wait to start looking at my clients with different lenses.

    Perfect explanation of how the body structures works via those lines and how to assess the body as a whole. Love that psychological point of view while assessing the structural body.

    Tom Myers is without a doubt one of the best teachers out there when it comes to bodywork and understand the body as a whole. If you have been around for a while as a practitioner you still will learn from him, if not from his knowledge about the body (which is vast), at least from his humble way to articulate what he has developed for over 40 years. Needless to say these series of videos are beautiful and engaging. If you love what you do as bodyworker, Tom will be a boost of inspiration. I can’t wait to expand my skills with him through anatomy trains.
