Video Course: Integral Anatomy

Gil Hedley

Gil Hedley presents and discusses the foundations of integral anatomy, supporting this unique perspective using images from the dissection laboratory. Every bodyworker touches the whole body and the whole person, but very few have seen what they are touching under the skin. This presentation offers an anatomical perspective coherent with the experience of massage therapists and other bodyworkers who have felt the whole body and the continuity of layers, but have never seen them presented in anatomy books, which tend to emphasize regions and the rendering of discreet anatomical "parts." In this presentation, you can see the whole, and experience the transformative power of that perspective.
