There’s a lot of confusion out there about how fascia responds to various forms of stretch and training. In this webinar, Tom Myers clarifies the subject by outlining four key properties of fascial tissue (viscosity, elasticity, plasticity, remodeling) and how connective tissues respond to various forms and speeds of training. Know what you’re talking about in the fascial arena by taking in this 30 minute video that ‘tells it like it is’ – simple, direct, and based on the latest research.

Mind blowing! I am so glad I watched this webinar. It made me think differently about fascia and how I take care of not only my massage client’s bodies, but my body as well.
Santiago (verified owner) –
Excellent! Tom Myers shines in explaining complex topics in a simple an very illustrative manner (with creative examples), while keeping awake the sense of “amazement” for this stuff. It was great and left me wanting to know more, specially about the different ways to train these properties. My only advise would be that the difference (in training methods) between Viscosity and Elasticity was not very clear, but for the space of the video this is understandable. Great quality!
Eileen Ballard MS MD (verified owner) –
My experience of Tom Myers work is profound and is changing everything in my approach to medicine and healing. I will never recommend medication to a patient without placing it a far second to the process of healing inherent in our structure. Much more to come. I can or thank you enough . I will review more material after I have digested and incorporated the concepts and remodeled my prior scaffolding. From my Heart. Eileen L Ballard.
Mariasilvia Pittaluga (verified owner) –
What I like most about Tom Myers is his ability to explain concepts by images! In this case 30 minutes of webinar are worh like a couple of scientific books I read in the last few months. And now I can immagine my fascia moving as I move. Very useful for moment therapists, that can’t feel the fascia on their clients, but can just look at the quality of the moment.
Brandy (verified owner) –
This webinar was great! I now have a greater understanding of Viscosity, Elasticity, Plasticity and Remodeling. The hands-on demonstrations brought a much clear understanding than just reading a scientific definition in a book! Also, the information Tom Myers provides in the webinar clarified much of deformation and “awkwardness” that I visually observe especially of fitness enthusiasts that seem to just jump into fitness, transforming their bodies, but continually end up with injuries. Now I can more effectively communicate what is taking place in an individuals body regarding this situation. Thank you for this education.
Azita Papaie (verified owner) –

This video both instructs and delights. I am curious about other methods for training more elasticity into tissue besides running on the balls of the feet.
Onward to the video about using the chair as a movement tool. Yeah.
ROS (verified owner) –
Brilliant, enthralling, entertaining and hugely informative. Tom Myers is an excellent teacher, and he explains in a fun way while making sure the viewer gets the details and main points. I have a new and much deeper idea about training and exercise now – yet I’ve been teaching ballet, dance and yoga for over thirty years without knowing any of this. Thank you Tom Myers, you have really enriched my knowledge and practice. 🙂

this webinar was clear and sysinct, in the way it explained the topic on how fascia move and the property of fascia, even though I have studied this previously I still found it very valuable, as it changed the way I view the properties of fascia.

Rhys (verified owner) –
Tom is an engaging presenter. The remodelling of fascia was of particular interest. I was disappointed that Tom did not make any mention of the relationship between the fascia and the enclosed muscle fibres during this stretching & remodelling. Would be interested in further exploration of these areas.
Kim Wemer (verified owner) –
Fascinating topic. Just not able to jump into it all at this time but maybe in the future. Appreciate all the little free previews that help give a glimpse!

Tash P (verified owner) –
Thoroughly enjoyed this Webinar. I have purchased the Anatomy Trains 3 recently. I have only just started to learn about Anatomy through my study to be a PT. I found Thomas Myers and Anatomy Trains Website through research i was doing on fascia due to recent surgery on my knee and foot. First time I have actually heard Thomas on the Webinar. Extremely knowledgeable. I will be saving for more courses, eventually would like to do them all! Thanks for free webinar 🙂

Iziko (verified owner) –
I am a dancer/circus performer interested in anatomy. Freshly after ACL reconstruction I was looking for information to better understand how fascia works. This webinar was a very good introduction to the topic for me. My physiotherapist and my doctor have different ideas about rehabilitation. The information I gained along with what my body tells me will help me to find the right process and therapist for me. Thank you very much!
Jenny Bremner (verified owner) –
I am quite new to anatomy and the trains this video was really interesting and explained using fantastic relatable analogies. If I ished the video and went straight online to order the book.

flavia (verified owner) –
Extremely clear and easy to follow, nice presentation of fascia and its property! Thanks for the great content.
LauraSG (verified owner) –
This presentation was extremely clear, concise both visually and verbally. Tom’s breakdown of the fascia elements, examples of how each works and responds to force was excellent. Training examples help differentiate between Viscosity, Elasticity and Plasticity to further clarify and make it more understandable how the properties differ and play a part in joint and muscle movement (or lack therefore) of our bodies. I always learn so much from Anatomy Trains and Tom Myers! Thank you for such an informative webinar – keep doing what you do best!
MahaDurga52 (verified owner) –
I learned and used this right away in my own practice and teaching. Changes I’ve been observing in my aging body as my practice changes are making a bit more sense now.
Leslie N. (verified owner) –
Loved it! I am a 200hr RYT offering a gentle class so I have purchased the Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians book to help me understand the limitations people are dealing with when they describe their ‘hotspots’ prior to a yoga class.
Mandy (verified owner) –
This is great , Tom makes it easy to follow it’s also really useful to be able to watch as many times as you can .😁😁
Anita Frett-Baptiste (verified owner) –
Very helpful for both using on my clients and my aging body as well. As a therapist of 27 years I’m very grateful for the explanations he puts forth. Only issue I’m having as I work through the Book ‘Anatomy Trains’ 3rd Edition is that there is NO DVD in the book to follow up with as the book constantly indicates/suggests and I’m not sure how to find the visual aids. I cannot afford all of the different mini e-classes and was looking forward to not only reading how this works but seeing it too for a deeper understanding. Can someone let me know if there is a way to find all of the DVD references online at all?
Ridha LHIBA (verified owner) –

I loved this video as the content was clearly explained and revealed much new information on the deep and profound topic of fascia in the body. I have practiced and taught T’ai Chi Ch’uan for more than forty years and the Huang (fascia in Chinese medicine) is a major conduit/conductor of Qi flow in the body. Looking forward to reading the Anatomy Trains book now.
