“Anatomy Trains:  Myofascial Meridians for Manual and Movement Therapists”

by Thomas W. Myers.  ISBN 0-443-06351-6

“A unique ‘whole systems’ view of myofascial/locomotor anatomy, in which the bodywide connections among the muscles within the fascial net are described in detail for the first tie.  Using the metaphor of railway or train lines, Myers explains how patterns of strain communicate through the myofascial ‘webbing’, contributing to postural compensation and movement stability.”

Understanding the connective tissue and the skeletal structure’s tensegrity helps the martial artist visualize and experience the body’s intrinsic strength as it relates to effortless interaction and powerful technique.
