Thomas Myers Anatomy Trains knowledge is fantastic. It’s what I’ve chosen to learn. It’s what I see making infinite sense as a lens to study movement through & to observe movement patterns.
It’s also an absolute pain to work through in such a patient fashion, because it’s one of the most frustrating conundrums I’ve come across – so difficult to wrap your head around, & yet so incredibly simple once you have!
There’s a ton to say about them (naturally), but I guess these would be my simple points:
- Game changer. It’s the road map for tension & tightness patterns. It’s the lens to look through & layer on other anatomy information (for me, anyway)
- You can feel it. All of it. It exists. In you. In dissections. In your movements, when you have awareness of the connections, how they feel, & you can visualise the load distribution.
- I will forever envy the young ones when medical books & biology classes change to teach this information. Because it better. If only I’d been exposed to this template when I was hunger…
- I keep seeking out people with injuries caused my movement patterns. The more chronic they are, the more excited I am to see if they would like to explore this avenue (& when pain is chronic, it’s more than likely that they have been desperately seeking answers for a long time). And so far, I haven’t seen a situation where this information is not relevant in diagnosis & doesn’t provide some sort of credible explanation & relief, & an appropriate solution to pursue.
Happy fascia days!
