Ortho-Bionomy
width=592

Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle, non-invasive, system of healing that reminds the body of its natural ability to restore balance. It's principles are based on a simple and profound philosophy: allow the body to correct itself. The hallmark of Ortho-Bionomy is pain relief.

The founder, 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 body is stimulated using gentle movements, comfortable positioning, brief compression and subtle contact. The result is seemingly effortless pain and tension relief, natural re-alignment, relaxation and a deep sense of well-being. The individual is empowered to participate in their own recovery, and through the process can begin to rediscover the ability to heal and restore comfort, ease and balance back into the body.

ORTHO-BIONOMY - Exploration of Movement Using Hands-On Movement to Analyze, Integrate and Deepen Releases (16 hrs) Wed & Thurs, Aug 30 & 31 (9 am - 6 pm). In this hands-on class, we will be adding movement as an additional tool to help our clients be more open, pain-free, and flexible. You will learn techniques and develop your sensitivity of moving the body on the table to evaluate where deeper blockages are, use hands-on movements to release the blockages, integrate at a very deep level in the body, and so much more. Prerequisite: One Ortho-Bionomy class. Instructor: Jim Berns Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.

ORTHO-BIONOMY - Isometrics (16 hrs) Sat & Sun, Sept 16 & 17 (9 am - 6 pm). Isometric and isotonic techniques for working with inefficient muscular tension patters, as well as underdeveloped muscle tone are presented and practiced, including related anatomy. Through the use of restraining movement while the muscle is engaged, self-correcting reflexes are stimulated and habitual holding patterns can be released. Participants learn how the conscious use of obstacles can help promote change from rigid physical patterns to greater mobility and allow the client to actively participate in the session. Instructor: Jim Berns Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.

ORTHO-BIONOMY - Releases for the Lower Extremeties Phase 4 (16 hrs) Sat & Sun, Nov 11 & 12 (9 am - 6 pm). Ortho-Bionomy uses osteopathic-based gentle body positions and movements to stimulate self-correcting reflexes within the muscles and nerves. Those responses can move the client out of pain and discomfort within 10-30 seconds. This method is very specific and structure oriented. In this class, you will learn how to apply pain relief techniques for knees, patella, femur head, ankle, and all the bones of the feet. Prerequisite: None. Instructor: Jim Berns Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.

Those responses can move the client out of pain and discomfort with 10-30 seconds. This method is veryspecific and structure oriented. This class is designed to help participants access and track sensation and energetic perception in themselves and in their clients, and to learn how to make contact with necessarily engaging physically. Techniques will be presented that monitor and acknowledge the inter- relationship between energetic, emotional and physical levels that demonstrate how energetic shifts can affect changes in physical patterns. Prerequisite: None. Instructor: Jim Berns Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.

ORTHO-BIONOMY - Releases for the Upper Extremeties (16 hrs) Wed & Thurs, March 21 & 22 (9 am - 6 pm). Ortho-Bionomyuses osteopathic-based gentle body positions and movements to stimulate self-correcting reflexes with the muscles and nerves. Those responses can move the client out of pain and discomfort with 10-30 seconds. This method is very specific and structure oriented. In this class, you will learn how to apply pain relief techniques for shoulders, scapula, elbows, wrist, clavicle and the bones of the hand. Prereq: None.

ORTHO-BIONOMY - Postural Re-Education and Post Techniques (16 hrs) Sat & Sun, April 28 & 29 (9 am - 6 pm).

Techniques to work with spinal curvatures and scoliosis are presented and practiced, including related anatomy. Post techniques focus on assessing and releasing areas of tension as well as integrating the work done in a session. In addition, exercises are taught to facilitate the client's ability to maintain balance through the neuro-muscular re-education of postural habits. Prerequisite: None.
