Each volume of this series presents the anatomy of human form, layer by layer, from an integral, whole body perspective. The DVDs in this series systematically document tissues and dissection perspectives missing from the established anatomical texts and videos. Skin, superficial fascia, deep fascia, muscle, visceral wrappings and viscera are dissected and demonsrated on camera as whole body layers in a series of truly unique and revealing sequences available nowhere else. In these DVDs, the viewer is brought directly into the laboratory as a first-hand eye-witness to the dissection and discovery process.
Because regional anatomy moves through the multiple layers of one region without ever exploring each layer across all regions simultaneously, the vision of the whole is lost, along with the advantages of comprehending the "big picture." Integral anatomy, with its whole body, layer by layer approach, stresses anatomical continuities and relationships previously overlooked or underdescribed in regional presentations. Integral anatomy is complementary to the essential and important study of regional anatomy. Both are needed and valuable, like different lenses in a professional camera bag, each capable of demonstrating a different perspective.
The visual proof and profoundly practical implications of this new approach can now be applied by professionals across a broad range of modalities. This series leads the viewer well beyond the boundaries of medical school anatomy and texts. The series is a must-have for any medical, allied or alternative health professional or student who wants their patient evaluations and treatments to be based upon a truly comprehensive knowledge of the human body.
These DVDs are essential aids for any therapist, practitioner, medical student or movement advocate working with the human body. Gil's unique teaching style brings life and curiosity to basic anatomy and dissection concepts by focusing on the body's layering, connections and integration."

Your DVD is fantastic. I love it! It is at the same time very professional, aesthetical, spiritual and anatomically richly informative.
Robert Schleip, M.S., research scientist
While there are other cadaver dissection tapes out there, this is the first one I have seen that makes me feel as though I am there, part of the dissection. I think it will be particularly important for people who are planning to go through a dissection class. I am very appreciative of the reverence with which you treat the person who donated their remains.

This is extremely well done!

...a potent and unique fusion of rarely seen images, insightful anatomical observations and interesting social and philosophical commentary. A significant tool that should radically alter how we understand and interact with fascial layers.
