Slings Myofascial Training is a fascia-focussed, body-minded movement training based on the latest findings in fascia-research. It is a holistic movement concept that can be incorporated into all body-minded practices. The movement concept aims for structural integration, functionality, and inside-out wellbeing through conscious movement. Slings can be practiced daily. In the long run, Slings activates the body’s self-healing powers and optimises resilience. It promotes balanced myofascial tone, force transmission, and movement ease, while refining system communication within the body.
The term ‘slings’ refers to internal connections of muscles and fascia. Instead of thinking of individual muscles, visualize long fascial continuities that connect several muscles in series. These continuities form well-toned slings inside your body that connect your feet to your head and your arms to your trunk. The myofascial continuities, also called meridians, are based on the Thomas W. Myers’ Anatomy Trains concept.
