Muscles and Meridians is a unique book that breaks new conceptual ground in the realm of human movement. Exploring the connection between evolutionary biology and Chinese meridians, the volume offers a novel and effective system of diagnosis and treatment of common musculoskeletal disorders.
- Describes a new model of human movement - the Contractile Field model
- Offers a rare and serious attempt to look at whole person movement patterns - akin to 'Anatomy Trains' but with a stronger link to vertebrate evolution and development
- Suggests that much of our endemic back and leg pain is due to a loss of ease in postures that are 'archetypal' to mankind
- Offers a profound new understanding of the world's oldest medical map, the Chinese meridian map
