 This foundation class covers the history, philosophy and concepts of Ortho-Bionomy and provides an overview and practice of the basic Ortho-Bionomy release techniques and anatomy for each major joint in the body. Students can begin to effectively apply Ortho-Bionomy methods after this class.

It is the perfect place to begin your Ortho-Bionomy learning journey.

How does Ortho-Bionomy work?
Ortho-Bionomy differs from many forms of body work in that it doesn’t use pain to treat pain, or use forceful work to oppose what is structurally occurring within the body. We work supportively with the patterns currently at play within the body, informing the nervous system about the structure and its patterns. Information given this way creates a follow-on effect through the body's natural self-correcting reflexes. This allows corrections to occur naturally and comfortably for clients.

What will I learn in a class?
Ortho-Bionomy Practitioners are trained to assess imbalances in the body that may cause pain or dysfunction. Then, using gentle but deliberate movement, practitioners assist and track the client’s body as it accesses the self-corrective capacity, to return to optimum health. Each class involves a combination of learning, demonstration, and hands-on practice.
