Philosophy Behind Ortho-Bionomy

The Philosophy Behind Ortho-Bionomy

Based in part on osteopathic principles, the focus of an Ortho-Bionomy session is to facilitate the body’s natural self-healing and self-regulating responses.

The Practitioner works with the body instead of on it. To elicit the self-healing responses the Practitioner takes care to support the comfort and ease of movement within the client. The Practitioner may gently exaggerate structural imbalances thereby stimulating the body’s self-regulating mechanisms.

Everything is done to encourage the body to respond to ease and comfort. Therefore, this work is very safe, even for those people who are highly sensitive or have limitations due to age or illness.
