For Immediate Release
(Kirksville, MO) Anatomy Trains joins the International Consortium on Manual Therapies (ICMT) as a Platinum Sponsor for Conference 2022.
Brian Degenhardt, D.O., C-NMM/OMM, the Chair of the Conference Planning Committee for the ICMT, said, “I am excited to have Anatomy Trains support the inaugural ICMT conference. They are a leader within manual therapies, modeling the musculoskeletal system to perform therapeutic interactions. I truly am looking forward to our partnership.”
The Anatomy Trains lays out fascial and myofascial ‘anatomy of connection’ throughout the body, giving you the ability to map the pattern and shape the change – no matter what your manual therapy or movement modality.
The 12 ‘myofascial meridians’ in the Anatomy Trains system join the individual muscles you learned into functional complexes within the fascial fabric – each with a defined anatomy and ‘meaning’ in human posture and movement.
Anatomy Trains leads to practical new holistic strategies to improve stability, coordination, and resolve long-standing compensations in postural and movement patterns – whether you are a manual therapist, movement professional, or using self-myofascial release (SMR).
Developed by author and bodyworker Thomas Myers in the 1990’s, Anatomy Trains has been welcomed and included in the curriculum by diverse health professionals – physical therapists, personal trainers, massage therapists, athletes and coaches, Pilates and yoga teachers, chiropractors and osteopaths – anyone interested in effecting lasting changes in body structure and movement through updating their idea of how the body regulates its biomechanics.
Anatomy Trains offers CEU-accredited short courses and longer certification trainings worldwide to convey the ideas, strategies, assessment tools, and techniques that grow out of the Anatomy Trains understanding.
Researchers in manual therapies will join together in May of 2022, for the inaugural International Consortium on Manual Therapies (ICMT) Conference. The ICMT is an organization of assembled international leaders dedicated to advancing the quality of patient and client care provided by practitioners of manual therapy through scientific collaboration. The ICMT working groups draw from the basic sciences, chiropractic, massage therapy, osteopathic, physical therapy and structural integration professions bringing modern clinician viewpoints together with scientific research foundations. The ICMT Conference 2022, hosted by the A.T. Still Research Institute, a division of A.T. Still University, is a conference held globally via an interactive web platform. The Conference program will actively engage attendees to help shape the future of collaboration and research in manual therapies.
