Come learn the principles, history and techniques of this gentle and deeply effective form of bodywork. If you took the Spine and Pelvis class, come complete the Basic techniques for the body. If you are new to Ortho-Bionomy this foundational class is a perfect place to start. Ortho-Bionomy is effective with both acute and chronic pain as well as stress and trauma. Ortho-Bionomy provides a tool for Massage Therapists to work deeply into tissue while saving their hands from strain. It provides a tool for energy workers to address the body physically and structurally but without force or invasiveness. It is a fun, respectful, powerful way for anyone interested in healing or personal growth to work with others.
Participants will learn techniques for the shoulders, ribs, elbows, wrists, hands, hip rotation, knees, ankles and feet. Also, students will learn how to creatively apply the principles, to “make it up”! Ortho-Bionomy works by gentle positioning and movements which exaggerate the body’s imbalance triggering a self-correcting reflexive response. Tensions relax, pain subsides, function and range of motion improve and well-being is restored. Ortho-Bionomy mixes well with other forms of bodywork, healthcare and personal growth.
