What is Ortho-Bionomy®?
Ortho-Bionomy® is a gentle, non-invasive, system of healing that reminds the body of its natural ability to restore balance. It is based on a simple and profound philosophy: to allow the body to correct itself and initiate steps toward the hallmark of Ortho-Bionomy, pain relief.
The founder, a British-trained Osteopath named Dr. Arthur Lincoln Pauls, discovered how to gently stimulate the body’s reflexes for self-correction in a way that supports a persons own healing mechanisms.
The body is stimulated using gentle movements, comfortable positioning, brief compression, and subtle contact with the result being seemingly effortless pain and tension relief, natural re-alignment, relaxation and a deep sense of well-being.
The individual is empowered through Ortho-Bionomy® to participate in their own recovery, and through this process, they can begin to rediscover the ability to heal and restore comfort, ease and balance back into their body.
What is an Ortho-Bionomy® session like?
Typically, Ortho-Bionomy® sessions last approximately an hour. Comfortable, loose fitting clothing is suggested to allow for full range-of-motion. The practitioner works with the client 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, negating the need for forceful movements or pressures.
Every Ortho-Bionomy session is specifically designed around the client’s individual needs. Your practitioner will rely on verbal feedback to find the techniques which best facilitate your body’s return to natural alignment. Typically, the relief of stress and tension lasts for days, and sometimes longer, after a session has been completed.
Your practitioner may suggest self-care release techniques you can do at home. These self-care techniques further aid in relieving pain, restoring function, and rebalancing the body.
