I received my first Ortho-Bionomy treatment in 1997, while struggling with an ongoing shoulder injury. I was intrigued that such a gentle method could have such powerful benefits. Within (3) treatments the chronic issue I had been living with for several years, and for which I'd undergone all kinds of treatment, resolved entirely.
Coming from a science and Remedial Massage background, I began to study with Ortho-Bionomy Instructors myself in 1998. Originally my interest was for the ongoing professional development requirements of health fund compliance for the massage industry. I soon realised the benefits the treatment offered, beyond that of massage.
Studying in a self-paced way, I spent the next (10) years attending classes, incorporating Ortho-Bionomy into my treatments, and now practice and teach as an Advanced Practitioner and Instructor of Ortho-Bionomy.
I practice Ortho-Bionomy exclusively in my clinic now for several reasons:
The outcomes for my clients are much improved
Ortho-Bionomy is physically very gentle on both my client's and my own body
The treatment is holistic, providing benefits for both the skeletal structure, the soft tissues, and the organs within the body
Working with the nervous system, Ortho-Bionomy allows my clients to be their best physically, mentally and emotionally
This respectful method is simply how I prefer to interact with clients
Sustainability. No products or equipment are used, so a very gentle footprint on the planet
Ortho-Bionomy is a principle based treatment. These principles have now become the way I interact in all my relationships.
I feel they not only improve the treatment outcomes in my clinic but, living with these principles, makes me a more effective person in all my relationships.
But life's not all work. Play is also important. Life is about balance, and I have lots of interests away from the clinic. Most of them involve exploring new experiences. These include travel, hiking, cooking, reading, movies, and sharing ideas in stimulating conversations. I love meeting new people, and exploring ways to achieve full potential for myself and those I work with.
