Sue Adstrum, PhD

Sue Adstrum, PhD is an integrative anatomist (a transdisciplinary anatomy researcher and writer) who delights in demystifying anatomy so that people can be more constructively involved in the health-related decisions and activities that pertain to them, as well as the people they help care for. She graduated from the New Zealand School of Physiotherapy in 1974, and then, nearly two decades later, became fascinated by the relationship between anatomy, fascia (the body’s soft connective tissue fabric), and the ways people are able to think about healing and healthcare. Wanting to learn more about these things, she enrolled at New Zealand’s University of Otago as a ‘mature’ student and earned a string of useful postgraduate qualifications, ending with a PhD in 2015. Since then, Sue has written several widely-read journal articles, a textbook chapter, and has presented her research internationally at a number of conferences. Sue’s work uniquely brings together several decades worth of conventional and complementary health practitioner training, clinical experience, and adult teaching experience with an eclectic raft of post-graduate university studies – in anatomy, anthropology, medical history and public health. The Living Wetsuit, her first book, pulls everything she has learned together in a way that she hopes will be accessible
and useful for a general audience. To learn more about Sue, please visit: www.sueadstrum.com.

Anatomies

It’s all in the perception! Even though this may come as a bit of a shock, it is important to realize that none of the ways anatomy is-or-was taught to you and I – by our teachers, textbooks, and even the latest and whizz-bangiest virtual anatomy atlases – actually tells the full truth about the…
