Ortho-Bionomy: Phase Four, The Basics

Ortho-Bionomy uses gentle movement and positioning of the body to address muscle spasm, fascial restrictions, structural imbalances, joint pain, and restricted range of motion.  Founded by an Osteopath, the techniques are profound in simplicity and effectiveness, and allows clients to experience their body’s own innate self-corrective capacity. Ortho-Bionomy is wonderful for both acute acute as well as chronic conditions that require an ongoing process of rehabilitation.  If you do Cranial or Massage Therapy, these release techniques are easily integrated into other modalities.  They will save you a lot of time & effort, will increase your palpation skills, and take you deeper into your work.

This foundational class covers the history and principles of Ortho-Bionomy, and gives two days of extensive hands on practice of specific positioning techniques that stimulate proprioceptive, self-correcting reflexes for all areas of the body.  By working with the proprioceptors at the joints, we assist the body to bring a more balanced tone to the muscles surrounding the joints, facilitating the release of pain and tension patterns in seconds, resulting in expanded range of motion, and a greater sense of well-being.  This work is easy to learn, easy on your body, highly effective, and combines well with any system of health care.
