Training in Ortho-Bionomy is a fascinating and profound exploration into the resources, anatomical processes and healing mechanisms of the body. Ortho-Bionomy is a principle-based work meaning that the techniques learned and practised tap into the deep regulating and healing mechanisms within the person. The result is not only physical change, pain reduction and greater balance but also a greater awareness of how to work with the body which ultimately leads to an effective means of addressing the needs of each client.

Studying Ortho-Bionomy goes beyond learning techniques for addressing the structural imbalances in the body. It's also learning how to understand and access the neurological and physiological sensory experiences that allow both the practitioner and the client to become more fully responsive in the present moment and to embrace and integrate change.

Ortho-Bionomy is a powerful, stand-alone therapy but can be effectively integrated into other forms of therapeutic work such as massage, reflexology, physiotherapy, and personal training. Most seminars also qualify as professional development within other bodywork modalities. In addition, many people use the Ortho-Bionomy training as a programme for personal development.

Practitioner training is offered in a combination of seminars, study groups, direct clinical experience and direct experience of Ortho-Bionomy sessions. Each trainee works with an instructor who advises and supports them through the training process.

All courses are generally run in two-day seminars. Phase Four is the beginning level course and is the prerequisite for most of the other courses. Training in Ortho-Bionomy can lead to the qualifications of Practitioner and Advanced Practitioner. For further details on the qualification programmes click on the links below:
