SUNDAY SCIENCE LECTURE SERIES
The Bodywork Education Project Presents
An Evening with Thomas Myers
"Fascia: Biomechanical Regulation"
May 31, 2012 @ 7pm
This evening is for those open to new ideas about how the body works. If you thought that problems of human biomechanics had been solved by our current understanding of muscles, bones, joints, and levers, come think again. A new and much more exciting picture of how we hold ourselves together, maintain our shape, and move through the world is emerging from the study of fascia. Fascia is everywhere, and has long been considered as the body's 'packing material'. It turns out to be a dynamic, body-wide system regulating our mechanical 'cell-f' all the way from consciousness to growth to injury repair and response to training.
This evening will be a visually rich tour through the neurology, physiology, and physics of the fascial system (blending the solidly scientific with the more speculative). Along with the implications of this re-vision for how we work in manual therapy and rehabilitation, it radically changes how we train for sports or art, and how we educate the coming generation to negotiate their Neolithic bodies through this electronic world.
This lecture is approved for 2 NCBTMB or BOC continuing education hours.
