Ortho-Bionomy is one of the most effective treatments I have used to alleviate pain, joint restriction, and stress from the body. This is a gentle, non-invasive system of healing that reminds the body of its natural ability to heal by restoring balance to the central nervous system and breaking the cycles of pain and dysfunction.
In the structural application of Ortho-Bionomy, positional release techniques are utilized to correct physical imbalances and to restore efficient functioning in muscles, joints and organs. Unlike osteopathy or chiropractic, Ortho-Bionomy does not use forceful manipulations. It is gentle, non-intrusive and safe, even in cases of acute injury and severe pain. The guiding principle in Ortho-Bionomy is to work with the body to activate self-correcting reflexes.
Working with the body, rather than merely on the body, is one thing that differentiates Ortho-Bionomy from more mechanical positional release approaches. However, Ortho-Bionomy also works on more energetic levels as well. It is often referred to as the homeopathy of bodywork. It is so gentle and relaxing that you may even fall asleep during your session!
