The 'Anatomy Trains' is a revolutionary way of analyzing soft-tissue patterns, and developing strategies for unwinding these patterns via fascial and myofascial work. Using the metaphor of train lines, tracks and stations, Tom Myers explains how patterns of strain communicate through the myofascial 'webbing', contributing to postural compensation and movement stability.
Anatomy Trains brings this concept to life in visually memorable 3D. A high resolution interactive 3D model of human musculature - with the anatomy trains lines, tracks, and stations - provide a unique map of the major myofascial continuities in the human body. The models can be rotated 360°, labeled and are supplemented by text descriptions and videos.
Combination views, to show the complex relationships of two or more lines, have also been included.
