Biographie de l'auteur

Thomas Myers studied directly with Drs. Ida Rolf, Moshe Feldenkrais, and Buckminster Fuller, and a variety of movement and manual therapy leaders. His work is influenced by cranial, visceral, and intrinsic movement studies he made with European schools of osteopathy.

An inveterate traveller, Tom has practiced integrative manual therapy for over 30 years in a variety of clinical and cultural settings, including 10 years in London, and practices in Hamburg, Rome, Nairobi, and Sydney, as well as a dozen locales in the US. He is a founding member of the International Association of Structural Integrators (IASI).

Author of Anatomy Trains and a set of supporting videos, and co-author of Fascial Release for Structural Balance (Lotus, 2010), Tom has also penned over 60 articles for trade magazines and journals on anatomy, soft tissue manipulation, and the social scourge of somatic alienation and loss of reliance on kinaesthetic intelligence. A certified Touch-in-Parenting instructor, Tom retains a strong interest in perinatal issues.

Living on the coast of Maine, Tom and his faculty conduct professional certification and continuing education courses worldwide.

Chaînes myofasciales, Rolfing, Fasciathérapies, modèle de tenségrité... Pour ceux que ces mots intéressent ou interpellent, ce livre donne des clés de compréhension. Bon il n'existe pas en français, mais les illustrations sont très claires, ça aide.

voilà longtemps que je cherche à relier les méridiens chinois à l'anatomie. voici enfin une approche sérieuse et bien plus convaincante (à mon gout) que les chaines musculaires de Busquet. à découvrir d'urgence!

Applicable to Everyone 20 mars 2009
Par R. Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Those of us in the physical therapy, personal and performance training, coaching, strength and conditioning, and other physical activity related fields know the importance of continuing education, and Anatomy Trains provides a refreshing look at how things actually work in comparison to half-of-the-story as provided by most text books.

Anatomy is taught in isolated motion. No one moves strictly in isolated motion in anything pertaining to every day life. This book provides the theory as well as dissection evidence to give credibility to the arguement that those of us in our field need to be more open minded to treatment outside the realm of strict anatomical interpretation. The problem there lies more in America's fixation with treating the problem, but not addressing the cause. Its not just the professional's fault for this, but the client's uneducation or miseducation.

When a client comes in to get a massage because they're back is tight, a massage therapist treats the back. It doesn't matter if the cause is actually a tight lower SFL causing anterior pelvic tilt then causing compensation in the SBL for the back pain; the back is still what the professional treats. Most of the time, it isn't the professional's fault for not knowing; it isn't taught in most schools.

Anatomy Trains is a great tool to show the benefits of progressive thought and prehab to prevent injuries in our clients and do a better job. Knowing how to fix is what we know, but knowing how to prevent is what we SHOULD know.

A RNs review from a patient/practioner's prospective 24 mai 2010
Par Southern gal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is my second purchase of this book. I bought it to give to my physical therapist. I'm repeating my first review under my new account.

Wow! I thought I'd ordered the wrong book for my needs, which are 1.more knowledge of the process of myofascial release and 2. more understanding of places/points of anatomy. It has been a long while since I've been in school and a long time since I worked at a top teaching hospital in the Bay area in California.

I read a few paragraphs, taking care not to damage the book, because I thought I'd probably return it. HOWEVER, after a few sentences I was immediately caught up in the beauty and clarity of this work. NEVER has physiology been made so interesting. Finally, I understand so many things that were just a jumble of memorized facts in preparation for exams. This book has rekindled my love of physiology and is even undoing my dislike of anatomy. Anatomy didn't make sense to me - it was boring - it was memorization. Now I am understanding why my body is so damaged from the stresses I subject it to, but better, I understand how I can undo some damage and prevent more.

I worked on a Sports Medicine unit where famous athletes came for surgery. So much surgery can be avoided with corrective measures for chronic stressors. The medical community needs to be aware of this important material.

So bravo for such a readable work. What depth of historial findings, beautiful graphics, excellent grammar and text. I feel as though I'm in school again, but this time it is for pleasure and for pain relief.

After a few pages I tried to find out more about the author and was surprised not to see a Ph.D. by his name, although I'm not sure a Ph.D. makes one any wiser.

I totally concur with the first review.

Don't buy this book if you are looking for a simple, trendy approach to bodywork. This is so much more.

For Every Manual and Advanced Movement Practitioner 2 mars 2010
Par Alejandro A. Reyes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I not only read this book, but I also did the 3-day training with Tom Myers himself. I actually experienced something down my superficial back line that weekend, which is the first line he discusses. It took a few days, but I've resolved it via some rolling and self-massage of the plantar fascia, calf and low back (all part of the SBL--Superficial Back Line), as well as getting myself a much-needed new and firm mattress on the Saturday of the course. It was interesting to have an experience of things being discussed. He's a great teacher with much experience and he conveys his work very well, just as he does in the book.

The book is very well-thought out, illustrated, organized, and written. The images are great and provide a real sense of what he's discussing. There are images of cadaver dissections, primal pictures images, rendering of the Anatomy Trains. The book is full color and the chapters are color coded making it a bit easier to get through.

The first chapter is rather dense at 60 pages, but the discussion of cellular biology really helps in giving some good background of this connective tissue matrix or extracellular matrix (ECM in Gray's Anatomy) that the Anatomy Trains is based upon. It's a good foundational chapter before getting into the myofascial meridians themselves.

Also covered in that first chapter is Buckminster Fuller's tensegrity (tension and compression) model. It is successfully mapped onto the human body and described in detail while juxtaposed to the classical Newtonian model of mechanical physics and the isolated muscle system we were all taught. I find the tensegrity model of the body to be nothing short of brilliant! The bones as compression structures pushing outward while the connective tissue and muscles making up the tension matrix pulling the bones in, thereby keeping them in place. It has muscular joint stability make so much more sense.

The anatomy trains are well-laid out and thoroughly explained. This system provides a good functional and global model of the musculoskeletal system, as opposed to the standard isolated muscle view. Recommendations for treatment and stretching techniques are well-discussed.

Although I state as a cautionary note that the average personal trainer will lack the anatomy background to delve into this work. I find it a bit more advanced and fitness pros should spend some time with some good functional anatomy resources before hitting this work. I haven't read Tom Myers' "Body 3: The Anatomist Reader", but it was stated in the course material as a good book to help with the anatomical references. Learning all of the functions of the separate muscles I think will help people to understand the Anatomy Trains better, because it can't be expected that this book will be a review of that. The classic "Muscles: Testing and Function with Posture and Pain" is a great work to delve into before attempting Anatomy Trains. Massage Therapists will most likely not have a problem with Anatomy Trains.

With that said, I also wished that the book and course had more fitness applications expressed so as to draw more fitness practitioners, instead of just yoga and pilates. I was the only personal trainer in the course out of 36 students and there is so much potential for this kind of work in the fitness industry. Gray Cook's review of the book should be evidence of that. Sue Hitzman, creator of the MELT Method, is doing some great work in the fitness industry with this model, but there should be much more done with it in general movement and function. There could be far greater application in the larger fitness industry which deals with movement in general. Physical Therapists can definitely benefit from this model as well. There were but 3 PTs in that course with me, including one from Provo, UT who flew to NYC to take the course.

Quantifying the results we get and then taking science a step further 14 septembre 2011
Par William D. Charschan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Originally, I read this because it was talked about by some of my chiropractic colleagues. As I read about the concept, and that in anatomy, we cut through all this stuff called fascia since it got in the way, Myers paints a picture that is quite different than my anatomy teacher did. After years of doing fascial release under the name ART as well as other methods, some of the good side effects actually connect into the anatomy trains universe and once I understood how the fascia controlled movement, rather than the muscles themselves, it completed the clinical picture for me.

The Anatomy Trains concept actually, forces the dedicated practitioner to look farther than we typically would, and as we use our hands to follow the entire tract, the results got even better. He also explained why working on the calf or other entrapment's have positive effects on how the core works. Simply, it has made me a better practitioner and gave be a better basis on which to achieve superior clinical outcomes.

Great work Tom.

I teach biology at the collegiate level so I have free access to some of the best anatomy books, but this one brings an entirely new level of information. This book is a must have for any person in the body working or fitness industry who wants a better understanding of what is happening in the body.
