62 m a s s a g e & b o d y w o r k s e p t e m b e r / o c t o b e r 2 0 1 8 THE HUMAN FASCIAL NET PLASTINATION PROJECT By Rachelle L. Clauson with Tjasa Cerovsek Landes and David Lesondak Like world explorers mapping uncharted territory, a group of scientists, researchers, therapists, and anatomy enthusiasts set out in January 2018 to bring us our first look at fascia in a way it's never been seen. Their mission? To create the world's first 3D human fascial net plastinated forms. Led by fascia research scientist Robert Schleip, clinical anatomist John Sharkey, professor of anatomy Carla Stecco, and director of anatomy and plastination Vladimir Chereminskiy, the Fascial Net Plastination Project (FNPP) is taking place in collaboration with the Plastinarium in Guben, Germany, the world headquarters for the internationally acclaimed Body Worlds exhibition. Now, these pioneering methods that brought Body Worlds to the public will help bring fascial anatomy education to the masses as well. Photographers: Rachelle L. Clauson, Stefan Westerback, and Andreas Haas. © e education
