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.”
