Gil Hedley, Ph.D., is the founder of Integral Anatomy Productions, LLC, and Somanautics Workshops, Inc and probably most known for coining the term “fuzz” within fascia research.
In terms of his background, Gil earned a BA in Religion focusing on ethics from Duke University, and went into the academic study of religion for graduate studies at the University of Chicago, where he earned his MA in the study of religion and his Ph.D. in the field of theological ethics. He also trained in and graduated from an esoteric healing arts school, practiced and taught Tai Chi for a number of years, and was at various points certified as both a massage therapist and a Rolfer.
For many years now, Gil has been doing in-depth research into the human fascia through dissection and his main objective in conveying his findings to the public is to show that the human body is an integer whole, each individual one being “an absolutely, 100% perfect representation of human anatomy”. He says: “The actual functional person is always a gestalt of all the systems, and all of the hopes and dreams, and all of the life processes, and all of the trillions of cells streaming.”
