Ortho-Bionomy
width=592

Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle, non-invasive, system of healing that reminds the body of its natural ability to restore balance. It's principles are based on a simple and profound philosophy: allow the body to correct itself. The hallmark of Ortho-Bionomy is pain relief.

The founder, British-trained Osteopath Arthur Lincoln Pauls, discovered how to gently stimulate the body's reflexes for self-correction in a way that supports a person's own healing mechanisms. The body is stimulated using gentle movements, comfortable positioning, brief compression and subtle contact. The result is seemingly effortless pain and tension relief, natural re-alignment, relaxation and a deep sense of well-being. The individual is empowered to participate in their own recovery, and through the process can begin to rediscover the ability to heal and restore comfort, ease and balance back into the body.

ORTHO-BIONOMY - Releases for the Spine & Pelvis (16 hrs) Tues & Wed, Feb 21 & 22 (9 am - 6 pm) Ortho-Bionomy uses osteopathic-based gentle body positions and movements to stimulate self-correcting reflexes with the muscles and nerves. These responses can move the client out of pain and discomfort with 10-30 seconds. This method is very specific and structure-oriented. In this class, you will learn how to apply pain relief techniques for the neck, thoracic, lumbar, psoas, ilium and the sacrum, and how to increase joint mobility. Prerequisite none: Instructor: Jim Berns Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.

ORTHO-BIONOMY - Subtle Physical & Energetic Releases (16 hrs) Tues & Wed, April 4 & 5 (9 am - 6 pm) Ortho-Bionomy uses osteopathic-based gentle body positions and movements to stimulate self-correcting reflexes within the muscles and nerves. Those responses can move the client out of pain and discomfort within 10-30 seconds. This method is very specific and structure oriented. This class provides you with the sensitivity, awareness and palpation skills to engage the client's physical and energetic body. You will learn to feel and follow the client's inner movements to help them unwind their patterns. You will learn specific techniques to bring balance to your client's body: physically and energetically, and you will learn to work distally from a point to release the body more fully. Barely move their body, yet release contractions deeply, easily, and with little effort. Prerequisite: None. Instructor: Jim Berns Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.

ORTHO-BIONOMY - Postural Re-Education and Post Techniques (16 hrs) Thurs & Fri, June 8 & 9 (9 am - 6 pm). In this class participants learn to evaluate and address inefficient postural habits through accurate observation and simple exercises. Techniques to work with spinal curvatures and scoliosis are presented and practiced, including related anatomy. Post techniques focus on assessing and releasing areas of tension as well as integrating the work done in a session. In addition, exercises are taught to facilitate the client's ability to maintain balance through the neuro-muscular re-education of postural habits. Prerequisite: None. Instructor: Jim Berns Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285 4-Wk $275.

ORTHO-BIONOMY - Releases for the Upper Extremeties (16 hrs) Sat & Sun, July 8 & 9 (9 am - 6 pm). Ortho-Bionomy uses osteopathic-based gentle body positions and movements to stimulate self-correcting reflexes with the muscles and nerves. Those responses can move the client out of pain and discomfort with 10-30 seconds. This method is very specific and structure oriented. In this class, you will learn how to apply pain relief techniques for shoulders, scapula, elbows, wrist, clavicle and the bones of the hand. Prereq: None. Instructor: Jim Berns Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.

ORTHO-BIONOMY - Exploration of Movement (16 hrs) Wed & Thurs, Aug 30 & 31 (9 am - 6 pm). Exploration of Movement Patterns adds a dynamic dimension to the positional release techniques. Participants will learn to recognize and palpate patterns of joint and muscle movement in order to facilitate increased range of motion to promote a general sense of well-being in the body. By gently exploring and supporting preferred patterns of movement or stillness, the client is invited to actively participate and recognize their patterns. Prerequisite: One Ortho-Bionomy class. Instructor: Jim Berns Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.

ORTHO-BIONOMY - Isometrics (16 hrs) Sat & Sun, Sept 16 & 17 (9 am - 6 pm). Isometric and isotonic techniques for working with inefficient muscular tension patters, as well as underdeveloped muscle tone are presented and practiced, including related anatomy. Through the use of restraining movement while the muscle is engaged, self-correcting reflexes are stimulated and habitual holding patterns can be released. Participants learn how the conscious use of obstacles can help promote change from rigid physical patterns to greater mobility and allow the client to actively participate in the session. Instructor: Jim Berns Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.

ORTHO-BIONOMY - Releases for the Lower Extremeties (16 hrs) Sat & Sun, Nov 11 & 12 (9 am - 6 pm). Ortho-Bionomy uses osteopathic-based gentle body positions and movements to stimulate self-correcting reflexes within the muscles and nerves. Those responses can move the client out of pain and discomfort within 10-30 seconds. This method is very specific and structure oriented. This class provides you with the sensitivity, awareness and palpation skills to engage the client's physical and energetic body. You will learn to feel and follow the client's inner movements to help them unwind their patterns. You will learn specific techniques to bring balance to your client's body: physically and energetically, and you will learn to work distally from a point to release the body more fully. Barely move their body, yet release contractions deeply, easily, and with little effort. . Prerequisite: None. Instructor: Jim Berns Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.
