Merrillville, IN (PRWEB) July 7, 2008
For the first time ever, AMTA Indiana will be presenting Anatomy Trains at the July 2008 Convention. This is a revolutionary, must-see seminar that will change your life and it is open to all manual/massage therapists. The seminar will be offered in Merrillville, Indiana, the weekend of July 24-27, 2008.
Many massage therapists have the intuitive sense that the body is a whole - yet Western anatomy is taught muscle by muscle - What would this single muscle do if it were the only one on the body? Useful information, to be sure, but it tends to divide the body up, and not give a sense of the whole.
And every massage therapist has had the experience of work in one area of the body affecting something at quite a distance from where the work was given.
Anatomy Trains provides a map for the connections within the unitary fascial web in which all of these individual muscles live. The communication along the fascial fabric allows work in one spot to be transferred to another. The lines show common pathways for that communication.
Anatomy Trains® Myofascial Meridians is a revolutionary idea for understanding whole-body patterning in posture and movement. Anatomy Trains is a new map of the 'anatomy of connection' - precise fascial and myofascial links through the body that lead to new holistic strategies for identifying and resolving complex underlying problems.

Also featured at the AMTA Indiana Chapter State Convention will be a massage marketplace and an open forum on massage certification in Indiana. The certification forum is open to the public.
