Principles of Ortho-Bionomy
Having been developed by an Osteopath, Ortho-Bionomy naturally follows some basic osteopathic principles. The focus of the session therefore is to elicit your body’s inherent self-healing and self-regulating responses. In order to elicit these responses I will support your body in comfort and ease of movement whilst gently exaggerating the structural imbalances. Due to the non-forceful nature of Ortho-Bionomy it is safe, even if you are highly sensitive or have limitations due to age or ill health.
Ortho-Bionomy as an Integrative Therapy
While Ortho-Bionomy is an effective stand-alone therapy, it will also complement any other treatment you might be receiving such as acupuncture, osteopathic, massage, physiotherapy, or conventional medical care. It does not interfere with any other treatment modality that you might be receiving but can, in fact, enhance its effectiveness.
