“Our knowledge of anatomy powerfully influences the choices we can make about our bodies’ health care.”

“Bodies. We all have them.
Most of us want our one to be healthy and well.”

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.

Integrative Anatomist | Physiotherapist & Bodywork Practitioner | Educator | Author

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by the many different ways people look after and help heal their own, and each other’s, bodies.

So, it’s hardly surprising that my life’s work has entailed studying, working with, and teaching others about these subjects – as a physiotherapist body therapist and bodywork practitioner, academic researcher and writer, educator, and book author. My learning has been considerably deepened through dealing with some of my own injuries and health issues, as well as those of my family and many patients.

The Living Wetsuit

The ‘Living Wetsuit’ is a simple and easy to understand anatomical analogy for the whole and fascia-infused garment of flesh that everyone’s bodies wear for all of their lives. It is fundamentally made from a special type of biological fabric – a living textile that surrounds, infiltrates, and supports everything else in the body – including its organs and skeleton of bones. The ‘living wetsuit’s’ supple three-dimensional fabric (the body’s soft connective tissue, or fascia) connects all of the body’s so-called parts (i.e., cells, tissues, organs and organ systems), uniting them into a single body whole.

The Living Wetsuit book is designed to be interesting and useful to the public at large … as well as health practitioners, anatomists, health educators, and their students.

The Living Wetsuit is an analogy for a person’s whole and life-energy-infused fleshy body garment. It is made from a special type of biological fabric – a living textile that surrounds, interweaves between, and infiltrates everything else in the body – including its organs and skeleton of bones. The Living Wetsuit’s supple three-dimensional fabric (the body’s soft connective tissue, or fascia) connects all of the body’s so-called parts (i.e., cells, tissues, organs and organ systems), uniting them into a single body whole.
