What is Ortho-Bionomy®?

Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle, non invasive body work therapy that is helpful in addressing many pain and stress conditions.

Structure of an Ortho-Bionomy session

In an Ortho-Bionomy session you remain fully clothed and usually I work with you on a bodywork table, although if required we can adapt the session to sitting or standing. After a thorough intake interview we will work together to assess and support the self-correcting patterns related specifically to the issues or conditions that you are experiencing.

Because of the gentle nature of Ortho-Bionomy, this work is very helpful for many different types of problems and conditions. Some of the benefits that clients report after sessions are:

  •  relief from acute and chronic pain
  •  improved structural realignment and postural balance
  • increased relaxation and greater resilience to stress
  • faster recovery times from injuries
  • a greater sense of self empowerment
  • increased vitality and emotional balance, and an increased sense of wholeness and wellbeing

This approach is principal based and no two sessions are the same. Key principals are:

  • works with you as a whole person and is adapted to you as an individual.
  • promotes healing and change with ease and comfort, and without pain.
  • follows and exagerates your body’s existing patterns to stimulate your body’s self correcting and self regulating mechanisms


Ortho-Bionomy is an intergrative therapy

Whilst Ortho-Bionomy is effective as a stand-alone modality it is highly complementary to any other treatments that the client may be receiving such as acupuncture, massage, chiropractic and physiotherapy as well as other medical treatment. This work does not interfere with any other modalities or treatment protocols.
