Ortho-Bionomy® is a gentle non-invasive form of bodywork that is highly effective in working with chronic stress, injuries and pains or problems associated with postural and structural imbalances.
Ortho-Bionomy® was developed by Dr. Arthur Lincoln Pauls, a British osteopath, who wanted to find a way to work with the body which honored the body's inherent wisdom. From his experience as a Judo instructor and through his training as an osteopath, he found ways of working with the body by exaggerating the body's preferred postures. This allowed the body's own self-healing process to create a greater balance and alignment.
He discovered that by working WITH the body and not against it, the body could find balance on its own without having to use force to correct it.
