Please join us for this unique Dissection Livestream event,  Every Breath You Take: Cranial and Nervous System Edition with Anatomy Trains author Tom Myers, and Master Dissector Todd Garcia.

Our dissections are done live, on donors who have not been ‘fixed’ with chemicals.  Therefore the colors and movement of the structures we will see on this voyage of discovery are as natural and lifelike as possible.

Discounted bundle available! Purchase with our Every Breath You Take: Eyes, Teeth and Tongue Dissection Livestream and save $100. 

This course will be provided over zoom webinar with multiple camera views, live chat and Q&A. Recordings will be provided via password protected streaming access for 5 days. This special dissection livestream format allows us to go more deeply into the relationships and applications to multiple manual and movement modalities, from athletic training to trauma resolution to osteopathy.
