James Earls has been a dedicated manual therapist for almost 30 years. During the last 20 years he has specialised in myofascial approaches to bodywork and co-authored the textbook ‘Fascial Release for Structural Balance’.
While teaching myofascial anatomy around the world he encountered many interesting models and became especially interested in the functional movement work of Gary Gray. After being awarded the highly regarded GIFT Fellowship from the Gray Institut, James started to blend his understanding of myofascial anatomy and functional movement into a second book – ‘Born to Walk’ – which has been translated into numerous languages with an updated second edition to be released in 2020.
James’s work combines his interests in functional, evolutionary and comparative anatomy to explore the ‘truths of movement’. He firmly believes that by understanding normal, everyday movement we are better able to understand the limitations our clients may experience and thereby develop appropriate, fun and individualised movement practices for them.
