Earnest has been exploring the boundaries of movement for more than three decades. Beginning as a martial artist, he studied various methodologies of Far Eastern and European Martial Arts for 13 years. His exploration of movement then led him into dance training at Ballet Austin, Columbia City Ballet, and The Ballet Arts Academy. He was an apprentice company member with the Columbia City Ballet, and also performed as a principal dancer with Austin City Ballet, Austin Dance Ensemble, and as guest artist with Ballet Spartanburg and the Dance Department at Palomar College. Earnest was also invited to, and attended the American Ballet Theater summer workshop for three consecutive years. Earnest has also trained as a GYROTONIC© apprentice instructor and has since extended his study into advanced skills such as Somatic Education, Kinesis Myofascial Integration and Thai Bodywork and Functional Range Conditioning.

Recovery from anterior cruciate ligament and meniscal injury led Earnest beyond his movement training to manual therapy and bodywork. Utilizing all his past experiences as a mover, he has worked with Physical Therapists to treat elite and Olympic level athletes rehabilitate from injury and improve their athletic performance.

Earnest believes in bringing all of his own and his clients’ somatic experiences to the table during each session. Every session is a co-creative process, the keys to which are listening and an invitation to change and evolve. His Bodywork sessions are rooted in proprioceptive exploration and the belief that the body cannot be addressed as a simple collection of individual muscles and organs but as a single dynamic organism with Intellectual, Somatic, Emotional, and Kinetic elements.

He firmly believes that one should never underestimate the power of listening to create lasting change.

As a dancer he is currently exploring non classical movement, somatic determinism and Capoeira.

I only rated the ambience less than perfect because it was my house!. Ernest is skilled, listens,, and figures out what is likely to relieve the pain. He is a caring and exceedingly competent massage therapist

I absolutely loved every moment of my massage treatment! I feel so much more at ease now - tension/knots were smoothly addressed without it being an intense experience. I feel refreshed! It was the best gift I could give myself. Earnest's ample experience and expertise in massage/PT is valued. For over 10 years I have been seeking a true quality massage treatment. I found it in Earnest. He has been my massage therapist for almost 3 years. He is the only one I will work with. Amazing experience!
