Video Course: Anatomy Trains: Re-Visioning Soft-Tissue Patterning

Tom Myers

Anatomy Trains is a revolutionary map for creating holistic strategies for lasting soft-tissue intervention. Anatomy Trains connects the muscles together in kinetic chains and fascial slings to transcend the old idea of single-muscle actions. Increased scientific understanding of the nature of soft-tissue relationships has led to a new understanding of how the plasticity of the "neuro-myo-fascial" web can be used to create lasting change for injury rehabilitation, performance enhancement, and personal development. This audio-visual presentation reviews new research findings, presents recent dissection evidence for fascial continuities, and points to some of the strategy directions emerging from this groundbreaking new way of seeing the locomotor system at work.

Tom Myers, BCSI, directs Anatomy Trains, which offers certification in Structural Integration in the US, Australia, and Europe, as well as short courses in manual therapy and functional anatomy worldwide. He is the author of Anatomy Trains (2020, 4th ed), and co-author of Fascial Release for Structural Balance (2017, 2nd ed). The Anatomy Trains myofascial meridians, which connect the muscles through the fascial fabric, is increasingly employed in a wide variety of rehabilitation and performance enhancement modalities. Tom studied directly with Ida Rolf and Moshe Feldenkrais, as well as Buckminster Fuller, movement luminaries, and European osteopaths. He has practiced Structural Integration for over 40 years in a wide variety of clinical and cultural settings. Learn more at
