While following that path, he began training in movement as medicine. He studied GYROTONIC, Somatic Education, Kinesis Myofascial Integration, and Thai Bodywork and Functional Range Conditioning, Facial Fitness,Yoga and Pilates. Due to a professional injury, Earnest started studying and practicing manual therapy and bodywork.

He has worked with physical therapists to treat elite and Olympic level athletes rehabilitate from injury and improve their performance, as well as the strains common to modern living, and much in between.
