What is Ortho-Bionomy
Would you show water how to run down a hill? It knows how, it only has to be set free. The body of man is the same; it knows; so who we are in our practiced intellect to teach it? It is better it teaches us and we observe the events that follow on.
—Arthur Lincoln Pauls, DO., Founder
Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle yet highly effective form of therapeutic bodywork. It is used to relieve pain and to restore natural alignment and well being. It helps resolve chronic and acute injuries, stress and trauma, as well as problems associated with postural and structural imbalances. Using comfortable positions and gentle movements, Ortho-Bionomy triggers the body's own self-correcting reflexes. No forceful manipulations are used. Instead, using gentle positioning, Ortho-Bionomy employs the body's innate wisdom to find balance and health.
