How you hold your energy, how you hold your intent. How you rest in your mind. What you give up. What you say Yes and No to. I would dare say Happiness is being Congruent. Ortho-Bionomy helps you find your way to this choice.
Ortho-Bionomy is rooted in Osteopathy, and gently manipulates using dynamic or static posture to make small adjustments in the arrangement of the bones and observe how the soft tissues react to the change. The soft tissues will flow with the movement – sometimes following right along with the bone, sometimes they will slide in other ways, or not move much at all. So Ortho-Bionomy works with the bones first and the connective tissues second. This makes it different from massage which only considers the soft tissue, and chiropractic which only considers the bones. The Ortho-Bionomist considers all systems: the bones, the soft tissue, the lymphatic movement, blood movement, and nervous system. All these systems are affected. All come into balance in the body, making for clear-er thinking, and better function and movement. Because the body’s own intelligence makes the choice in the changes that occur, the results are longer lasting. The key to success is deep listening and following the body’s lead to change. The work is gentle and profoundly relaxing, and most people fall asleep during the session. People often report an ability to sleep more deeply.
In my practice in Bend, OR, I make it my focus to help clients by educating them so they may gain insight into their own body processes. When appropriate, I’ll weave in an energetic conversation to explain how it affects the physical. With an understanding of how the body functions, and how it self corrects, one can better facilitate their own healing process.
