- Anatomy Trains

 

 

 

About Anatomy Trains

The Anatomy Trains lays out fascial and myofascial ‘anatomy of connection’ throughout the body, giving you the ability to map the pattern and shape the change – no matter what your manual therapy or movement modality. 

The 12 ‘myofascial meridians’ in the Anatomy Trains system join the individual muscles you learned into functional complexes within the fascial fabric – each with a defined anatomy and ‘meaning’ in human posture and movement.

Developed by author and bodyworker Thomas Myers in the 1990’s, Anatomy Trains has been welcomed and included in the curriculum by diverse health professionals – physical therapists, personal trainers, massage therapists, athletes and coaches, Pilates and yoga teachers, chiropractors and osteopaths – anyone interested in effecting lasting changes in body structure and movement through updating their idea of how the body regulates its biomechanics.
