What is Ortho-Bionomy?

Ortho-Bionomy stimulates the body's self-balancing reflexes. 

The Practitioner uses gentle techniques to hold you in a comfortable position that may allow your body to change the stress and pain patterns that are causing discomfort, thereby alleviating pain, increasing flexibility, improving circulation, and relaxing the entire body. 

Ortho-Bionomy helps people break the cycle of pain – without creating pain.

Ortho-Bionomy also acknowledges and affirms the inner wisdom in your body that can maintain your health and well-being. Using light touch and subtle movements, it awakens a sense of natural balance for body, mind and spirit. Ortho-Bionomy is also compassionate, kind and non-judgmental.

When the body is out of balance, it adapts as well as it can, but in the process it may create patterns of even greater stress. The simplicity of Ortho-Bionomy means the practitioner and client may work together to re-educate dysfunctional patterns and restore normal functioning.

Whether looking for relief from specific discomfort or a safe and effective way to ease stress and promote relaxation, Ortho-Bionomy can be very beneficial. It can also work in conjunction with other health and healing systems.

A Typical Session

Ortho-Bionomy sessions last approximately 1 hour. Comfortable, loose-fitting clothing is suggested to allow full range of motion. I will work with you to identify areas of discomfort, tension and pain as well as areas of comfort and ease of movement. Gentle movements, comfortable positioning, brief compressions and subtle contacts are used. No forceful movements or pressures are used.

Every Ortho-Bionomy session is specifically designed around your individual needs. You can, but don't need to, give verbal feedback to fine tune-movements that best facilitate your body’s return to natural alignment. Typically, the relief of stress and tension lasts for days or longer after a session.

I may suggest self-care techniques  and exercises you can do at your leisure to further aid in relieving pain, restoring function, and rebalancing the body.
