Many of us have yet to discover that there is a powerful link between our understanding the human body’s structure (or anatomy) and the ways we are able to logically think about its health care and healing
Our knowledge of anatomy is extremely important because it powerfully shapes our understanding of how our bodies work, and what we can do to help them stay healthy and active. It also helps us understand what happens when our bodies are hurt or unwell, and what we might do to help ease their pain and, hopefully, get better.
There are many ways of conceptualising the human body structure (anatomies), each of which logically supports a particular type of health care. We see this in the ways people have been medically cared for in different parts of the world over thousands of years. Even today, an acupuncturist, a brain surgeon, a massage therapist, and an Ayurvedic physician are likely to be using different, yet overlapping, sets of anatomical knowledge – each of which is in keeping with the types of treatment they offer.
My mission is to help people from many walks of life learn about the powerful link between their knowledge of anatomy and the ways they are able to rationally think about, and possibly become more actively involved, in their bodies’ health care and healing.
