Phase Five

The focus of this course is to move to a more subtle awareness of the practise and principles of Ortho-Bionomy. Specific techniques develop and increase the participant’s understanding and proprioceptive sensitivity to the self-correcting movements initiated by the client. Through the practise of observing, following and supporting subtle movement patterns, muscular tension is released, range of motion is increased and pain is reduced. In Phase Five, students are encouraged to do less and let the client be the guide for his/her exploration of change. Phase Five is the ‘healing dance’ where we the practitioner offer the invitation but the client leads.
