Introduction to Ortho -Bionomy: Hands-on Psoas and Spine @ The Village at Waterman Lake
Nov 17 @ 9:30 am – 5:30 pm

Ortho-Bionomy ​is ​an ​Osteopathically ​based ​non-force ​technique. ​It ​is ​gentle, ​effective ​and ​profound. ​It ​was ​created ​by ​Arthur ​Lincoln ​Pauls ​DO, ​who ​was ​also ​a ​Judo ​Master. ​Having ​its ​roots ​in ​both ​Osteopathy ​and ​Martial ​Arts ​Ortho-Bionomy ​is ​principle ​based ​work, ​which ​provides ​clear ​techniques ​and ​room ​for ​creativity. ​This ​class ​will ​cover ​the ​history ​and ​foundational ​principles ​of ​Ortho-Bionomy. ​There ​will ​be ​demonstrations ​and ​hands ​on ​practice ​of ​techniques ​for ​the ​psoas ​and ​the ​lumbar, ​thoracic ​and ​cervical ​spine. ​Participants ​will ​leave ​with ​tools ​they ​can ​use ​in ​their ​practices ​as ​well ​as ​principles ​to ​explore. ​This ​approach ​is ​as ​gentle ​on ​the ​practitioner ​as ​it ​is ​on ​the ​client. ​It ​saves ​a ​therapists ​hands ​from ​strain ​and ​provides ​a ​tool ​to ​work ​deeply ​when ​the ​client ​is ​too ​sensitive ​for ​direct ​pressure. ​It ​mixes ​beautifully ​with ​Massage ​Therapy ​and ​other ​modalities. ​

*Ortho-Bionomy®, ​the ​Sand ​Dollar ​Design, ​and ​Society ​of ​Ortho-Bionomy ​International ​are ​registered ​trademarks ​of ​the ​Society ​of ​Ortho-Bionomy ​International, ​Inc. ​and ​are ​used ​with ​permission. ​
