Tom Myers has studied Fascia since the 70s and has also summarized other researchers’ studies on the Fascia.
What Myers is perhaps best known for is the power transmission lines, which he describes in his book Anatomy Trains. These can be a good basis for greater understanding of the Fascia’s functions. While all of these lines merge into each other and the entire Fascia acts as a whole and a network without beginning or end, it may be useful to divide them into these different parts and study their various functions.
The lines enclose muscles, and it is sometimes described what the function of these muscles is or what type of muscle fiber the line contains. The lines are, therefore, not stand alone, but enclose organs, muscles and other tissues and parts which are included in the line.
Anatomy Trains is an excellent book to read with many facts about both training, exercises for mobility and the Fascia’s construction.
