Biotensegrity: The Structural Basis of Life by Graham Scarr

Biotensegrity: The Structural Basis of Life
by Graham Scarr
Chartered Biologist and Osteopath; Fellow of the Linnean Society and Fellow of the Society of Biology

Paperback
152 pages
Highly illustrated
$42.00
ISBN: 978-1-909142-16

The concept of tensegrity as a structural design principle has been around since the middle of the 20th century  and is currently seeing a huge increase in interest including among biologists, clinicians and others interested in functional anatomy and movement. This book provides a highly accessible and very detailed introduction to the subject in a way is specifically intended to inform and enhance manual and movement therapists’ practice.

Summary

There are many hundreds of scientific publications that mention tensegrity / biotensegrity in relation to human anatomy, from cell function to the mechanics of individual joints and the entire structure. Biotensegrity – the structural basis of life brings the picture into focus for the first time, describing the discovery of tensegrity, explaining the basic geometry and its significance for anatomy, and presenting its assimilation into current biomechanical theory. It attempts to clarify and explain to the manual therapist and movement teacher in simple language what biotensegrity is, how it works and how the practitioner can integrate understanding of it into clinical practice leading to more effective therapeutic care of clients.

Summary

This highly and beautifully illustrated book applies fascial anatomy to yoga giving a new context for using knowledge of the anatomical body in a practical and relevant way to movement. Presenting fascia as the tensional network of connective tissues – the fabric of the human form – this book demonstrates how tissues are animated in three dimensions, helping the therapist and teacher to deepen their understanding of anatomy, promote self-confidence and adaptability in individual students, and reduce vulnerability to soft tissue injury. Part 1 examines recent research and the paradigm shift from the classical anatomy of the musculoskeletal system to the new perspective the fascia provides. Part 2 applies this perspective to the practice of yoga with clear descriptions of techniques, exercises and plenty of illustrations. Part 3 considers the metaphysical aspect of yoga and the hidden geometry of our biotensegrity architecture as a metaphor for consciousness.

Architecture of Human Living Fascia by Jean Claude Guimberteau and Colin Armstrong

Architecture of Human Living Fascia: The extracellular matrix and cells revealed through endoscopy

by Jean Claude Guimberteau and Colin Armstrong

Architecture of Human Living Fascia presents Dr Jean-Claude Guimberteau’s ground-breaking research into the architecture and organisation of living form and his concept of global dynamics. Packed with extraordinary photos and videos on the accompanying DVD and website, this work challenges the view of layered tissue organisation that traditional anatomy books describe.

Description

With the use of his technique of intra-tissular endoscopy Dr Guimberteau reveals the complexity and intricacy of tissue mobility where there are no distinct layers. It may raise questions as well as answers but the significance of this book is immeasurable and will open avenues for further research in the study of living anatomy.

Dr Jean-Claude Guimberteau is an internationally renowned hand surgeon and past-president of the French Society for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Colin Armstrong DO is an osteopathic practitioner and a founding member of the French Academy of Osteopathy.

Contents

The component parts of this exciting and unique project are:

  • 232 page book which includes 350 photographs and diagrams.
  • DVD containing numerous video clips
  • Videos that can be accessed directly online using a unique code printed in the book

Description

The book is a beautiful visual and narrative guide to a range of myofascial techniques developed and perfected by the author. They represent a set of effective and accessible tools for some of the most common client complaints. At the core of the book is the aim of helping to alleviate pain – as a secondary benefit of increasing options for movement and refining the proprioceptive sense. The book achieves this goal through clear text; color diagrams and photographs that are aesthetically dramatic and highly explanatory; and links to video film clips that demonstrate techniques dynamically.
Til Luchau delights in combining the technical and the beautiful in his manual therapy articles which have appeared in magazines and professional journals around the world. Originally trained as a psychotherapist, his ability to connect interdisciplinary, big picture ideas to practical real world applications has made his trainings popular worldwide.
