Strolling under the skin

Images of Living Matter Architectures

This is a most inspiring video journey into the architecture of human fascia. It is a 'must have' for every bodyworker and movement therapist.

The world lying beneath the skin remains to be discovered…

…to be discovered by scientists because apart from a few notions evidenced at the beginning of the 20th century, the relationships between the organic structures and how they slide together are poorly understood.

…to be discovered also by the layman, who will come upon a world of colours, changing structures, a world constantly adapting, whose ultimate goal is to provide flexibility, allow movement and maintain equilibrium.

For over half a century, research has neglected these territories. Let’s simply contemplate these structures that are our very make-up… and ponder upon them.

This 28-minutes video from Dr. Jean Claude Guimberteau, a plastic and hand surgeon, shows you the most fascinating images of living fascia. The beautiful and magnificent images is sufficient, but you also learn how the collagen, ground substance water and fat work together to make the 'sliding system' - the body's interconnected system of loose connective tissue.

The Skin Excursion

The Passage of the Epidermis

This 28 minutes film is the sequel to "Strolling under the skin" exploration of living fascia to the skin and the layers immediately underneath. This film highlight the skin through endoscopic observation, made on the living body, during surgery, to highlight the existence of a mechanism of mobility, architectural organization in the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. A vision of the organization of the body in total continuity throughout the interior design will then open our eye. With similar striking and unique filming of the living fascia in action, this new film explains the unique structural aspects of our skin and superficial fascia.

Muscle attitudes

This 22 minutes film continues the journey to explore the human body extending from "Strolling under the skin" and "The Skin Excursion. In this film, the authors, a surgeon J.C.GUIMBERTEAU and a the scientist J.P. DELAGE want to prove the fact that a muscle is a contractile structure completely included in the meshwork of the multifibrillar system already described under the skin and inside the skin and not a side one.

On the anatomical point of view, they think that there is no tissue discontinuity and all the sheaths around or inside the muscle, epimysium, perimysium or endomysium are, in fact, one unique frame tissue in continuity with sliding tissues embedding organs. Actually, muscular cells are set inside this microfibrillar and dispersed pattern, architecture.

Interior Architectures

Exploring the Architecture of the Human Body

A new film by J.C. Guimberteau (2012), the first directed synthesis after "Strolling under the Skin" and "The Skin Excursion"

Filmed in High Definition, this new sequences was filmed by Dr. J.C. Guimberteau during surgical procedures using endoscopy. The movie sets out to show the highly mobile network of tissue below the dermis and hypodermis, filling every available space. The fascial web that forms a continuity tissue and internal architecture of the body appears to be an ideal network made up of fibres, fibrils and microfibrils, and microvacuolar spaces. This can be demonstrated at all degrees of magnification, from the mesosphere to the microsphere. Therefore, this network can be described and interpreted as a global system...

Skin, Scars and Stiffness

Shown for the first time in the 2012 Fascia Congress in Vancouver...

Thanks to the peroperative endoscopy, the knowledge concerning living human matter is now largely improved. This DVD presents a new concept on the living body based on the fascia as a multifibrillar interior architecture that is able to respond to mechanical constraints. This multifibrillar network has a dispersed pattern, a chaotic scaffold but nevertheless is responsible of the best mechanical efficiency in our body ...

About the author

The images from these videos were taken during surgery by Dr. Jean-Claude Guimberteau. Dr. Guimberteau was born in 1947. He is co-founder and scientific director of the " Institut Aquitain de la Main ", and Director of Research at the " Société Française de Chirurgie Plastique Reconstructrice et Esthétique ". Member of the National Academy of Surgery, co-founder and Scientific Director of the Institute of Aquitaine hand, responsible for cell search in the French plastic surgery, reconstructive and aesthetic team.

J.C. GUIMBERTEAU has explored new experimental fields and has tried to explain the gliding of the structures under the skin. After hundred of observations, he has concluded that it seems that there is one unique architectural system and that the tissue continuity is global. He thinks that sharing these discoveries will incite people to get into this scientific world showing this new way of explaining living matter organization These pictures register in the history of the contemporary filmography, giving birth to a look of a new type, to discover...
