I am pleased to contribute to this book from my friend, colleague, and mentor Erik Dalton. My chapter on Myofascial Meridians outlines several metaphors helpful to a holistic approach to structural and movement therapies, and then describes one map of larger functioning continuities within the musculoskeletal system. These continuities, termed myofascial meridians, wind longitudinally through the myofascial tissues around the bones and joints. These ideas are unfolded in detail in the book Anatomy Trains (Elsevier, 2001, 2009), and at www.AnatomyTrains.com Anatomy Trains provides a traceable basis for effective treatment at some distance from the site of dysfunction or pain. This new view of structural patterning has far-reaching implications for treatment strategies, especially for longstanding postural imbalances, unsound body usage, and sequelae from injury or insult.
