ADVANCED MYOFASCIAL TECHNIQUES: ANATOMY REVIEW LISTS

So that we can most efficiently use our class time, basic familiarity of the location and function of the following structures will be assumed. Most structures will be directly addressed by the techniques taught; some indirectly. Structures listed as a "group" (e.g., "Flexor group") will be addressed together, and so less specific knowledge of the constituent muscles will be assumed.
