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 interrelationships.
