This week I am bringing in Tom Myers to talk about bringing anatomy trains to the larger healthcare community. We also talk about how he is using it to connect different health care providers within a common language. For those of you who don’t know Tom, I imagine that is a very small percentage of you out there, he is the founder and cartographer of Anatomy Trains. His work has literally changed our industry and understanding of not only how the body is put together, but how it functions from a myofacial perspective. Needless to say it is a great honor to talk to Tom about his work.
When preparing for this conversation I can say that I was certainly a bit nervous, and wasn’t sure what to expect. What I found was that Tom is not only smart, articulate, and embodied, but he is also a truly kind human being. This is not always the case when someone comes into the kind of prominence that Tom has risen too. I immediately felt that he was open and welcoming. We covered a lot of ground, from his work facilitating conversations between different healthcare providers, to the way he helped his daughter develop kinetic intelligence before she could walk. It was, as I hoped it would be, an engaging and inspiring conversation.
