The practice of Ortho-Bionomy incorporates principles used in osteopathy, homoeopathy and judo. Its techniques stimulate long lasting changes by re-educating the body to maintain balance and optimal function. Ortho-Bionomy does this with gentle movements, preferred positions and subtle joint compression to stimulate the body’s inherent self-corrective and self-balancing reflexes.Your Content Goes Here
Often I will incorporate some or all of the following techniques into a session: positional release, range-of-motion exploration, isometric and isotonic techniques, posture exercises, gentle rocking, subtle or minute movements, visceral or lymphatic work and energy movements away from the body.
A typical session lasts approximately one hour with initial consultations being 90 minutes. At the end of the session, I usually identify self-care exercises for you to do after and between sessions to continue the releases and to help remind your body of its new patterns.
Initially, two to four sessions are encouraged after which an ongoing program of self-care and/or individual sessions can be developed if required.
It is usually recommended that you receive two to four sessions to assess how your body responds and to identify whether additional sessions could be beneficial or whether simply continuing with the self-care exercises would be adequate.
In general, the longer you have experienced a specific condition the more sessions may be required to help resolve your condition. I am very happy to discuss your specific situation to determine what course of treatment will be appropriate for you.
