Anatomy Trains

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:

  1. 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)
  2. 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.
  3. 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…
  4. 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!
