Integral Anatomy Series DVD - Dissection of the Skin & Superficial Fascia
Skin & Superficial Fascial Dissected / Demonstrated As Whole Body Layers In Superficial And Deep Projections
Layers Dissected On Camera & Presented In Detail
Stunning Off-body Example From The Male
Entire Superficial Fasciae Of The Female
In what may be the most visually surprising and important sequences in the 4 DVD series, skin and superficial fascia are demonstrated as whole body layers in their superficial and deep projections. The layers are dissected on camera and presented in detail in their variations and in their implications for overall health. The visuals include a stunning off-body example from the male, and the entire superficial fascia of the female form is demonstrated off body as a singular layer and discussed in its wide ranging importance.
This disk represents an important contribution to your understanding of these two most external layers of the human form. Only through a thorough familiarity with and understanding of these two layers can that which lay beneath them be truly comprehended. Anyone who wants to access the layers of deep fascia, muscle, viscera and bone must feel through these outer layers knowingly. Vol. 1 conveys that knowledge to the viewer. The material found on this disk is unique, cannot be found in books, and represents a leap beyond established regional perspectives. Enjoy!

Integral Anatomy Dissection Series Overview
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 demonstrated 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.
About Gil Hedley & Integral Anatomy Productions
Gil has spent a large chunk of this life in formal school situations, studying religion and ethics. He went to Duke as an undergrad, and then to the Divinity School of the University of Chicago for an MA in the study of religion and a Ph.D. in Ethics. While in Chicago, he studied Tai Chi, which, among many other things, helped him to develop a deeper understanding of the human form.
With the path of body exploration opened, Gil went to the Rolf Institute and trained in massage, and was certified as a Rolfer in 1993. Then he and his wife spent 4 years studying whole person healing and psychodynamics at the IM School of Healing Arts. During that time, he began teaching anatomy at the healing school, and teaching anatomy in the dissection lab as well. Thats where the Six-Day Intensive Hands-On Human Dissection Workshop first took form, the core curriculum of Somanautics Workshops, Inc, which Gil founded to administer that program.
After ten years developing and teaching that course in many cities nationwide and abroad, Gil has undertaken the enormous project of putting his approach and message down in a video format: The Integral Anatomy Series is now itself coming into form. Gil's sincere wish is that you find it a contribution to your own process of self-exploration, education and discovery.
