Practitioner Training Programs in Ortho-Bionomy

Ortho-Bionomy Australia oversees two professional training programs for Ortho-Bionomy® Practitioners developed by the Society of Ortho-Bionomy International – the Registered Practitioner Program and the Registered Advanced Practitioner Program. Both programs are designed to give students a thorough understanding of the principles and philosophy of Ortho-Bionomy in addition to providing extensive hands-on experience in both seminars and supervised practice.

Students choose an Instructor as an advisor during their training. The advisor assists the student while they complete their curriculum through one-on-one discussions as well as feedback and evaluation sessions.

In addition to the Practitioner Trainings there are also training programs for Instructors and Advanced Instructors.

Contact us if you would like more detailed information about any of the training programs.

Registered Practitioner Program
This program is designed to give individuals a thorough understanding of the art and practice of Ortho-Bionomy. The focus is on assuring that the student has a thorough understanding of the principles of Ortho-Bionomy and is highly skilled in the techniques and applications of the work in a clinical setting. Students are prepared to present and demonstrate the work in their own practices and communities.
