B Fig. 6 A section of the thigh, derived from the National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project by Jeffrey Linn. The more familiar view in (A) includes muscle and epimysial fascia (but not the fat and areolar layers shown in Fig. 24). The view in (B) gives us the first glimpse into what the fascial system would look like if that system alone were abstracted from the body as a whole. ) separating ones. It binds every cell in the body to its neighbors and even connects, as we shall see, the inner network of each cell to the mechanical state of the entire body.

This suggests that a complete approach to the 'fibrous body' - a 'spatial medicine' approach, if you will - would best be obtained by a practitioner having skill in four ultimately and intimately connected but still distinguishable areas: • The meninges and perineurium that surround and pervade the predominantly ectodermal tissues of the dorsal cavity, currently dealt with by the methods of cranial osteopathy, craniosacral therapy, methods of dealing with adverse neural tension, and sacro-occipital technique; • The peritoneal sacs and their ligamentous attachments that surround and pervade the predominantly endodermal tissues of the ventral cavity are addressed by the techniques and insights of visceral manipulation; • The 'outer bag' (see the following section on embryology for an explanation of these terms) of myofascia, which contains all of the myofascial meridians described herein and yields to the many forms of soft-tissue bodywork such as straincounterstrain, trigger-point therapy, myofascial release, and structural integration, and finally • The 'inner bag' of periostea, joint capsules, thickened ligaments, cartilage, and bones that comprise the skeletal system, responsive to the joint mobilization and thrust techniques common to chiropracty and osteopathy, as well as deep soft-tissue release techniques found in structural integration.

Following these ideas, we draw this chapter together with a new image of how the fascial system actually puts all these concepts to work together in vivo. The three holistic networks Let us begin with a thought experiment, fueled by this question: Which physiologic systems of the body, if we could magically extract them intact, would show us the precise shape of the body, inside and out? In other words, which are the truly holistic systems? Imagine that we could magically make every part of the body invisible except for one single anatomic system, so that we could see that system standing in space and moving as in life.
