The power of fieldsDolphinsHelix

The interaction of Contractile
Fields coherently changes our
shape. Conceptually we need
to move away from groups of
muscles based on body regions
towards a whole organism
perspective.

 

 

The power of fields

Fields precede the formation of specific tissues in the embryo. Cells that specialise in contractility are carried from their source to their destination by fields that cooperatively generate shape and movement. The model is both succinct and aesthetic. It is relevant to both assessment and treatment.

fields THAT interact

Below are the contractile fields that interact to change our shape:

THE LATERAL CONTRACTILE FIELD (L-CF)
We bend to the left and right – like a fish

THE DORSO/VENTRO CONTRACTILE FIELD (D/V-CF)
We bend forwards and backwards – like a dolphin

THE HELICAL CONTRACTILE FIELD (H-CF)
We twist to walk, run and throw – like a human

THE RADIAL CONTRACTILE FIELD (R-CF)
We breathe and brace – like all mammals

THE LIMB CONTRACTILE FIELDS (Limb-CFs)
We are derived from a tetrapod – like a Bonobo chimpanzee

THE CHIRALIC CONTRACTILE FIELD (C-CFs)
To move needs both a blood and food propulsion system – like a vertebrate

THE FLUID FIELD (F-F)
Water – the common mediator to all movement
