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 - Cranial (16 hrs) Sat & Sun, Oct 13 & 14 (9 am - 6 pm). We will be using the Osteopathic Ortho-Bionomy principles to work on the cranium. We will work with the structure, (skin, muscles and bones); Unwinding, the dynamic of how relaxing the practitioner deeply releases the client; energetics of the cranium, and the anatomy and physiology of self-corrections, and the body/mind relationships. With the influence of the different nerves, blood, meridians and brain stimulations going through the neck, head and face, the effects of this work can be powerful. It gives the saying "get your head together", a whole other meaning. This may be different from any other Cranial Class you have taken. Prerequisite: One 16-hour Ortho-Bionomy Class or instructor permission. Instructor: Jim Berns Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.
