Five Fundamentals of Ortho-Bionomy

 

GENTLE. HIGHLY EFFECTIVE

A comfortable fully integrated system of body work which helps a wide range of issues involving pain or dysfunction. It is highly effective for both recent injuries as well as chronic complaints including those associated with postural and structural imbalance.

RESPECTFUL. NON-INVASIVE

Ortho-Bionomy is safe enough for infants, as well as those who are highly sensitive, have experienced traumatic injury or have limitations due to age or illness. It is also safe before and after surgeries, and during pregnancy.

HIGHLY SKILLED. PROFESSIONAL

Ortho-Bionomy Practitioners are highly skilled professionals who adhere to a strong code of ethics and conduct a respectful, client-centered practice. Ortho-Bionomy has been used as a compliment to other professional therapies. It is also widely practiced in many countries around the world.

A DEDICATED LINEAGE

Ortho-Bionomy was developed over 40 years ago by Osteopath Arthur Lincoln Pauls, DO. Dr. Pauls combined the structural principles from Osteopathy with energetic and philosophical concepts from the Martial Arts and Homeopathy to create Ortho-Bionomy.

{My first experience with Ortho-Bionomy was amazing! It doesn’t seem like much but I had a sharp pain at the base of my thumb (the saddle joint). I had it for ages; chiropractors massage therapists, no one could “fix” it. During my first Ortho-Bionomy visit, I pointed it out to the Practitioner. She checked it by carefully moving it and asking questions, like “does it feel better this way or that way?” It felt like the muscle in my forearm was “wrapped” around the bone and with gentle touch in about 30 seconds, the pain was gone! And now, if I feel the pain again, I know how to release the muscle by myself. Self-care is an important part of Ortho-Bionomy. Ortho-Bionomy is so gentle – it is wonderful for the elderly or those in acute pain. It helped alleviate my son’s concussion symptoms in one session. And, because it is helps the body to “do the work”, changes last longer than some other therapies. The body seems to relearn a “new normal”.

{The quality of my daily life has been vastly improved by my Ortho-Bionomy treatments. As the name suggests, they have helped my body return to (and retain!) easeful, 'right' alignment. The therapy has been incredibly effective both for a recent, acute knee injury and for some chronic pains that many other modalities had been unable to address meaningfully. Without actually experiencing it, I never would have believed that the principle of "always working within comfort" could increase my range of motion so profoundly.

{After 20 years of persistent sciatic pain from an athletic injury I went for an Ortho-Bionomy session. (I had already tried every other modality). I was so amazed to experience complete relief after 5 gentle sessions. I was so inspired, I studied to become a practitioner. 'Life-changing' is an understatement!

{Due to the physicality of my work, I often have to deal with pain due to repetitive work injury.  Ortho-Bionomy has been more effective than chiropractic, physio, or any other form of pain management and treatment. Since 1992 OB has been my go-to treatment. It has been life changing for me. A bad headache, neck pain and general discomfort can be relieved so efficiently by Ortho-Bionomy in one treatment. The efficacy of the process lasts long after the initial session.

{It’s like dance you have with your own body while you’re just watching on. Just blissful, painless and opens up your world to an understanding about yourself that’s so simple. Highly, highly recommend Ortho-Bionomy.
