After being a Massage Therapist for 20 years and a Registered Practitioner of Ortho-Bionomy, I still debate on what is easier: to demonstrate Ortho-Bionomy or to describe it. The best way to understand it is to feel it, or experience it!
I will do my best to describe Ortho-Bionomy and entice you to have a treatment and experience Ortho-Bionomy for yourself. Ortho-Bionomy is bodywork and more, it is a method that addresses all of the physical tissues: Bones, muscles, ligaments, fascia, visceral organs, lymphatic tissue; and also those things that are not physical, like the aura, energy and things that have yet to be named. Ortho-Bionomy provides many benefits: It releases pain, Increases flexibility, encourages relaxation, implements neuromuscular reeducation, encourages good structural alignment. and it affects the emotional and physical balance of the body as well.
What are the qualities of the work?
- Ortho-Bionomy is gentle and effective and non invasive
- Ortho-Bionomy Is done with the clothes on
- Ortho-Bionomy always moves the body away from pain, and towards ease
- Ortho-Bionomy helps people feel relief, especially those with pain and tension, strain and injuries
- Ortho-Bionomy encourages a sense of overall wellbeing and increases inner peace
- The practitioner and client work together in a session in order to obtain the desired results.
Ortho-Bionomy helps the body understand what it is doing (the patterns) that are causing the pain. Then through reflexes, the body corrects itself from the inside out. Your body can relearn how to move, without re-engaging the pain or discomfort.
My clients report back that, at a minimum, they have an increased sense of well being after a session. They feel considerably more relaxed, more aware of their bodies, and more integrated. Their pain is also reduced considerably.
Symptoms can shift immediately, or after 3 or more sessions, depending on the perpetuating factors. If the tension patterns have been held for a long time it can take longer to release and integrate them.
As the treatment progresses, sessions are scheduled once a month and then reduced to treatment only as needed.
My goal is to convey that Ortho-Bionomy is simple yet highly effective. Its effectiveness is enhanced via clients continued use of the techniques of self care at home, as instructed by the Registered Practitioner.
All of this not only helps to integrate the changes in our body better health, but also life’s changes. Simple, easy at times challenging, but results are worthwhile.
