Ebook: Anatomist's Corner: An Advanced Guide to Anatomy in Massage & Bodywork-Part 2
Anatomy is obviously a critical component of a solid massage and bodywork education and a successful practice. But anatomy is not a stagnant discipline. New scientific discoveries are constantly changing how we perceive the body and all its many intricacies. This second course moves us past the first course (Anatomist’s Corner: An Advanced Guide to Anatomy in Massage & Bodywork—Part 1) into the world of structural bodywork, and delivers discussions that range from both firmly biomechanical to speculative and esoteric. An in-depth look at author Thomas Myers’ Anatomy Trains concept, and its structural integration “recipe,” helps lay foundation for the conversation.
