3 Day Ortho-Bionomy Foundation Class with Frank Heslin

Start Date
13 March 2021 9:00 AM
End Date
15 March 2021 5:30 PM

Developed in the 70’s by Osteopath/Martial Arts Master Arthur Pauls, Ortho-Bionomy is now taught and practised worldwide. Dr Pauls found that by working in the direction of ease, and away from pain and resistance, honoured the body’s inherent wisdom and consistently restored a more natural state of balance, alignment, and well-being.

This foundation class over three days, rather than two, will allow more depth and time for learning. Specific positioning techniques to stimulate natural self-correcting neuro-muscular reflexes for all joints of the body will be taught. These gentle techniques facilitate the release of pain and tension patterns, promote expanded range of motion, and offer a greater sense of well-being. Techniques will be taught as follows: 13th & 14th March: Neck, Full Spine, Sacrum, Psoas, Ilium, Shoulder, Clavicle, Ribs, Sternum, Scapula. 15th March: Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist, Hand, Femur, Knee, Ankle, Foot.

  Postural Re-education and Post Treatment techniques

In this class students will gain understanding, exploring and creating balance within the structures that hold us upright. Modern life tends to have us living in a fast-forward "lean" or in an overuse pattern. This creates structural disharmony, patterns of inefficient movement, pain, lack of movement and even rigidity. The aim of this class is to learn methods to notice these inefficient patterns of imbalance, learn ways to create freedom of movement, and ways to integrate these changes.
