    Breaking Down the Mechanics of Movement Fascia (connective tiss

    Breaking Down the Mechanics of Movement

    Fascia (connective tissue in our bodies) has played a significant role in the way we move. Thomas W. Myers explores human movement and fascia in relation to health professionals, dancers, and athletes in Anatomy Trains: Myofascial Meridians for Manuael and Movement Therapists. He explores "our largest sensory organ" in a way that laymen will understand clearly.

    Readers of Myers' text have described it as "revolutionary" in its approach to physical therapy. It certainly isn't the first time these ideas have been put to print, but its certainly good information to propagate. My interest in the topic led me to Human Movement Potential: Its Ideokinetic Facilitation, which was first published in 1974 by Lulu Sweigard who was an authority on posture and movement. Myers' modern book has an easy-to-read layout that gathers all the general ideas and explains them simply. Illustrations are also helpful in demonstrating the breakdown of human anatomy to the cellular level.

    Topics like gait and fitness are connected in more ways than one. It is Myers' hope that health practitioners and athletes will apply the techniques and treatments in this book as they reconsider the concept of movement defined as a "straight line." Ultimately, Myers breaks down the traditional notions of what makes a body, in order to inspire new generations who will think about body movement strategies for a better future.

    This book will fit well on any one's shelf related to movement. This includes massage therapists, yoga instructors, osteopaths, and even those who train in athletics and dancing.
