Slings Myofascial Training© (Karin Gurtner) Aug 2016/18
Our environment shapes our fascial body and this can be positively influenced with movement
‘Slings’ refer to the continuous elastic lines of muscle and connective tissue (fascia) that run from head to toe in different planes (front, back, deep & superficial) of the body.
These lines of positive tension contribute to postural balance, movement efficiency and sensory awareness and are ‘essential elastic catapults that propel us forward’. The lines were discovered in human dissection and were aptly termed Anatomy Trains by Thomas Myers.
By understanding which muscles and fascia form a continuous sling and how each sling affects the others, we can work by way of “peeling an onion” to reveal the underlying cause of postural dis-ease or movement restrictions.
Ultimately we can improve the support that each Sling provides to achieve body wide dynamic stability, or the support from within that enables you to move (without pain) however you like to! By promoting the fascial qualities of muscular glide, elastic recoil and adaptability (to name a few), athletic performance and recovery can be significantly improved.
