Semester Two

Required and recommended textbooks and other curriculum materials for Semester 2 of the Somatics Professional Training Program.

Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point Manual, Volume 1: Upper Half of Body

This pain care professional's classic provides a muscle-by-muscle description of how trigger points refer pain to other parts of the body.

This Second Edition presents introductory general information on all trigger points and also detailed descriptions of single muscle syndromes for the upper half of the body. It includes 107 new drawings, a number of trigger point release techniques in addition to spray and stretch, and a new chapter on intercostal muscles and diaphragm.


Interactive Functional Anatomy DVD-ROM (2nd Edition)

For the first time, technology allows unparalleled animations of gross motor movement that show how groups of muscles become active during common motions such as jumping, walking, and running. Interactive Functional Anatomy, Second Edition, answers a clearly identified need in the teaching and understanding of body musculature and motion. This is an excellent resource with painstaking attention to detail and dynamic imagery. The software features computer graphic models of human anatomy derived from MRI scan data, and fully interactive 3-D animations show function. Pop-up labeling appears as you view the 3-D models, and you can click on any structure to bring up related text and all related animations of muscular function.


Trail Guide to the Body (Student Handbook)

If you want to differentiate your psoas from your scalenes or just want to ace the next quiz, you'll find the answer here. This handbook follows the chapters and structures as they are arranged in the Trail Guide to the Body textbook. A resourceful complement, this handbook contains 220 pages and 450 illustrations. It offers a variety of questions and exercises including fill-in-the-blanks, drawings to color, illustrations and matching exercises.


Visualizing Muscles: A New Ecorche Approach to Surface Anatomy

As the human body moves, muscles contract and relax, creating subtle changes in body contours and shifting patterns of light and shadow on the skin's surface. Visualizing exactly what happens beneath the skin to cause these changes on the surface is an essential skill for artists, physicians, physical therapists, and body builders — for anyone who needs to understand the body in motion. Why not paint a live model to look as though his skin had been stripped off and then photograph him in multiple poses? From that idea comes Visualizing Muscles, an innovative aid to drawing, sculpting, and learning surface anatomy. More than one hundred static and active poses are included in Visualizing Muscles. Paired photographs — one painted and labelled, one not — show how the simulated muscles produce the subtle lights and darks, hills and valleys, on the model's unpainted skin. Captions highlight the muscles called into play by a given pose.


Somatic Exercises for Full Breathing

Set of three CDs for those needing to improve respiratory functions and those who are concerned with the relationship of shallow breathing to coronary health.
