Fascial Dissection Workshop

Instructor: Tom Myers and Todd Garcia

Credits:  40 CEs Cat 1 

Course Description:

Anatomy Trains offers a unique opportunity to do your own dissection projects as well as learn from everyone else’s work. For this year, all our work will be with untreated, fresh-tissue cadavers — otherwise difficult to find (and no embalming fluid — which means no chemical smell and a much truer picture of the fascial and other tissues). Learn and work your own dissection projects with fascial expert and Anatomy Trains author Tom Myers and master dissector Todd Garcia in Todd’s Laboratory of Anatomical Enlightenment in Tempe, AZ. These annual events draw students from all types of manual therapy, movement therapy, and fitness in an exploration of the real human form — not the images you get from books. These are not prosections or demonstrations — you are in there from Day 1 doing the dissecting yourself. Tom and Todd will offer tutorials, explanations, or brief lectures on our collective findings. Choose the project you want to follow, as well as observe the results of everyone else’s. No previous experience with dissection is necessary to attend this course. Emotional and spiritual aspects of the experience are very much respected — it’s a voyage of discovery. Nothing can replace doing dissection first hand, with your own hands and eyes. What is it you want to know about? What do you want to see for yourself?
