Ortho-Bionomy

Ortho Bionomy is a method which stimulates mechanisms of the body to regain their natural functions that have been altered by different causes – such as accidents, incorrect postures, and/or unnatural habits. The techniques used evoke the self-corrective response within every person’s body. This “recognition” allows the nervous system and muscular holding patterns to release. Thereby, structural imbalances can be regained.

The philosophy and scientific roots of Ortho-Bionomy lie in the field of Osteopathy. This 100 year old system of healthcare recognizes that self-healing and self-regulating the body seeks to augment the basic curative force. It was developed in the early 1970’s by Dr. Arthur Lincoln Pauls. He also drew elements from his martial arts background and homeopathy. Ortho-Bionomy uses positional release, subtle movement and gentle compression to engage the structure and neurology of your body to self-correct without using pain or force. By guiding the person away from pain, and towards ease or comfort, the instincts of the body are summoned up and the body does not resist this change. It is facilitation vs. intervention. Each session helps the client build their body awareness and gain knowledge towards helping themselves maintain health within every system of their body.

“Ortho-Bionomy helped me heal from injuries sustained in a car accident. My neck and back never felt such lasting relief with any other physical therapies or bodywork. I had tried several different therapies – massage, chiropractic, physical therapy but Ortho-Bionomy was the method that allowed me to recover.”
