Ortho-Bionomy was developed over 30 years ago by 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.
Dr. Pauls described how Ortho-Bionomy works this way: "Injury or disease result from what I call 'misunderstanding’. Ortho-Bionomy brings understanding to the person, so that he or she may respond appropriately, rather than by habit or fear."*
An Ortho-Bionomy session is a respectful and comfortable "hands-on" experience. The gentle techniques used activate self-corrective nerve reflexes, allowing the body to regain its original patterns of health and wellness. Physical and emotional healing occur as the body remembers its natural ability to seek balance by moving from pain to comfort.
Ortho-Bionomy is successfully used to help people with a variety of health complaints including acute injuries such as whiplash; chronic conditions like headaches, back pain and stress; problems associated with postural and structural imbalances, and emotional issues.
Ortho-Bionomy Practitioners are highly skilled, competent professionals who adhere to a strong code of ethics and high standards of practice.
