Ortho-Bionomy: Reminding the body of its ability to find balance
Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle, non-invasive system of healing which is helpful in addressing many pain and stress conditions. Developed by Dr Arthur Lincoln Pauls, a British osteopath, Ortho-Bionomy supports the self-correcting capacity of the person through the use of gentle movement and positioning of the body as well as light compression into the joints. Ortho-Bionomy stimulates long-lasting changes by re-educating the client’s body so that it can effectively maintain balance and optimal functioning on its own.
One of the fundamental principles of Ortho-Bionomy is to do the least amount necessary to facilitate the body’s capacity for self regulation and self balancing. But sometimes we can end up doing too much or what we might call “over working” our client which can greatly reduce the effectiveness of the work or stimulate an exaggerated response.
