Offered by: Shelly George – Evolve Ortho-Bionomy®
Ortho-Bionomy® is a highly effective system of bodywork based on a simple and profound philosophy: Allow the body to correct itself. The hallmark of Ortho-Bionomy® is pain relief.
The founder of Ortho-Bionomy®, British-Trained Osteopath Arthur Lincoln Pauls, discovered how to gently stimulate the body’s reflexes for self-correction in a way that supports a person’s own healing mechanisms.
The result is seemingly effortless pain and tension relief, natural re-alignment, relaxation and a deep sense of well-being.
Ortho-Bionomy® helps people break the cycle of pain – without causing pain. It is very effective for recovering from injuries, surgery and stress. It aids recovery by reducing muscle tension, soothing the joints, increasing flexibility and range of movement, improving circulation and relaxing the entire body.
Typically, most Ortho-Bionomy® sessions last approximately one hour. Comfortable, loose fitting clothing is suggested to allow a full range of motion. The practitioner works with you to identify areas of discomfort, tension and pain as well as areas of comfort and ease of movement. Gentle movements, comfortable positioning, brief compressions and subtle contacts are used.
No forceful movements or pressures are used. Every Ortho-Bionomy® session is specifically designed around your individual needs. Your practitioner will rely on your verbal feedback to find the techniques which best facilitate your body’s return to natural alignment. Typically, the relief of stress and tension can last for days after a session. Your practitioner may suggest self-care release techniques that you can continue at home. These self-care techniques further aid in relieving pain, restoring function and re-balancing the body.
Whether you are looking for relief from specific discomfort or a safe and effective way to ease stress and promote relaxation, Ortho-Bionomy® can be very beneficial. Ortho-Bionomy® is compatible with all healing systems. It is not a substitute for appropriate medical care, nutrition or exercise.
