Anatomy Trains 2-Day Dissection Immersion 

Instructor: Tom Myers

Organizational Host: Kinesis

Credits:  15 IASI Category 1

Course Description:

For manual therapists and movement professionals, this new 2-day Anatomy Trains dissection course introduces you to what actually goes on under the skin, contrasted with what you see in anatomy books. 

‘Autopsy’ means ‘see for yourself’ – come see for yourself how the body really looks, feels and moves. The emphasis is on fascia and movement, but we expose nerves, muscles, joints, and organs as well. This course circulates among three stations: 

  • Anatomy Trains author Tom Myers demonstrates fascial layering, glide, and force transmission, as well as properties of viscosity, elasticity, plasticity, scarring, and remodeling.
  • Master Dissector and dissection laboratory director Todd Garcia demonstrating superb dissection technique on the body’s organ systems and complexes.
  • Practice your own dissection project, get to know the tools and procedures, and see what you came to see with Anatomy Trains Certified teachers Lauri Nemetz and Holly Clemens.

This course is suitable as an introduction to our more comprehensive 5-day fascial dissections, or as a refresher for those who have already taken the 5-day.

Unique features of this course:

  • Untreated cadavers – no smelly chemistry, full articular range-of-motion 
  • You work yourself, it’s not just show-and-tell by experts 
  • Tom Myers’ singular take on body systems and movement 
  • Todd Garcia’s dissection skills and openness to anatomical discovery 
  • Fully supportive somato-emotional atmosphere 

The full schedule is available on the Anatomy Trains website.
