    Biotensegrity: The Structural Basis of Life

    £36.00
    ISBN: 9781909141841
    AuthorGraham Scarr
    Pub Date12/11/2018
    BindingPaperback
    Pages204
    Availability: In Stock

    The author describes the second edition of this groundbreaking book not as an instruction manual but as a response to the frequently asked question: 'What is (bio)tensegrity?'. Biotensegrity is an evolving science which provides researchers, teachers, and practitioners across a wide range of specialisms including all bodyworkers and movement teachers with a deeper understanding of the human body and therefore the ability to develop their clinical practice and therapeutic effectiveness in light of this understanding. This book explains the basic principles of biotensegrity and explores our understanding of anatomy and physiology in the light of the latest research findings.



    New features of the second edition include:





    Now in full color throughout
    Expansion of the developmental and therapeutic aspects of biotensegrity to consider:


    A more thorough look at life's internal processes
    Closed kinematic chains as the new biomechanics
    Embryological development as an evolutionary process
    The human body as a constantly evolving system based on a set of unchanging principles
    Emergence, heterarchies, soft-matter and small-world networks
    A deeper look at what constitutes the therapeutic process
