Chris Clayton lives in Southeast Queensland Australia, where he and his wife Maree operate their Structural Integration and remedial therapy Clinic in the regional City of Toowoomba. Chris is a certified Anatomy Trains Structural Integrator and a movement therapist where he practices structural integration and implements Anatomy Trains in Training concepts as the backbone of his movement therapy strategy.

Chris’ first love was and still is the martial arts, where he teaches for free and strives to be a perpetual student, a journey that has spanned 42 years or more so far. It was in his early years of training, where he saw his martial arts instructor successfully treat fellow students when they presented at class with basic injuries. Chris was immediately profoundly interested in what he saw, when he asked his teacher what he could do to follow the healer’s path, his teacher pointed him to anatomy, Chris has been following that advice ever since.

Chris has been in the coaching/training industry for over 35 years and holds Diplomas in Sport Development, Sport Coaching and Fitness. Since 2007, Chris has taught Sport Coaching and Fitness qualifications for the Australian College of Sport Development and YMCA Brisbane as an industry partner for over a decade before becoming an Anatomy Trains Certified Teacher. Over time, it became ever more apparent, that the best way to improve an athlete or client was to be able improve them where they were most vulnerable. This led Chris to continue his learning and integrate manual therapy into his work, eventually resulting in Chris becoming an ATSI practitioner.

Chris has toured with AP Lindberg of Anatomy Trains in Training in Australia and Asia in June/July 2017/18. Recently
Chris has also been teaching regularly in Singapore. Like most therapists, Chris just likes to help people feel better and most days he will be found happily working with his clients at his clinic.
