Ortho–Bionomy is a gentle, non-invasive, osteopathically-based form of manual body therapy which is highly effective in working with chronic stress, injuries and pains or problems associated with postural and structural imbalances; –Ortho-Bionomy.
Historically, just like, CranioSacral Therapy, Myofascial Release, and Visceral Manipulation, “Ortho-Bionomy” was founded upon sound Osteopathic principles.
It was developed by Dr. Arthur Lincoln Pauls, a British osteopath, who wanted to find a way to work with the body which honored the body’s inherent wisdom.
Dr. Pauls, found ways of working with the body by exaggerating the body’s preferred postures, and positions that permitted the body’s self-healing process to create greater balance and alignment. He discovered that by working with the body and not against it, the body could find balance on its own without having to use force to correct it.
The term “Ortho-Bionomy” comes from “ortho” meaning correct or straight, “bio” meaning life, and “nomy” meaning the laws of or study of. Dr. Pauls defined the term then as “the correct application of the laws of life.”
