BORN TO MOVE (BTM) blends functional movement principles with hands-on manipulation of the soft tissue to give you completely new and exciting assessments and treatment strategies for your clients. BTM allows the practitioner to work with motor control, joint and soft-tissue issues all with the same technique – the client is simultaneously assessed, treated and re-educated with pain-free interventions.
What is BORN TO MOVE ?
Born to Move (BTM, formerly Active Fascia Release/AFR) has been developed by James Earls, blending his understanding of myofascial and functional movement principles with hands-on manipulation of the soft tissue to create a variety of therapeutic effects.
James trained with Tom Myers, the originator of the Anatomy Trains model, and studied functional movement principles with Gary Gray and David Tiberio of the Gray Institute. Born to Move aims to bring the best of both these models together to give you an immediate and effective treatment tool.
Born to Move combines elements of motor control theory with a neuro-myo-fascial approach to identify, treat and finally re-educate the client’s movement patterns. The blending of guided movement with various soft tissue engagement protocols has created a method that addresses the body as a whole and acknowledges the roles of the body’s various tissues and their interrelationship
Understanding and applying essential principles – touch, layering, movement
Applying different movement drivers to create different effects and knowing when to use them
Knowing how to create tissue length versus separation and when to apply each
Combining structural and functional assessments and making sense of how they interact
Building on the principles listed above to develop global and local movement strategies and knowing when to use each based on the combined structural and functional assessments
A full repertoire of interventions for the upper body including quadratus lumborum, obliques and intercostals, multifidi and shoulder girdle muscles. Bringing the protocols together to assess and understand the full body connections.
A fully illustrated manual outlines the principles and techniques
Participants also receive access to video content to review and expand on the techniques demonstrated during the workshop
Who Should Attend:
The workshop is designed for massage therapists, physical therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and those wanting to add an extra dimension to their treatments. While anatomy and pathology will be acknowledged during the 3 days of training, time is too short to teach basics, so a reasonable understanding is expected to allow for a rapid progression and focus on techniques.
What To Bring:
Wear loose, comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely
