Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle, non-invasive healing methodology used to address a variety of pain and stress conditions. Ortho-Bionomy was developed by British Osteopath, Dr Arthur Lincoln Pauls.

Based on Osteopathic principles, Ortho-Bionomy provides support to the innate self-correcting ability of the body via the application of gentle movements and light compression of the joints. The therapy serves as a catalyst for enduring change by re-training the client’s body so that it’s able to maintain balance and optimal functioning without assistance.

Clients mention experiencing relief from pain, improved range and ease of motion, enhanced structural realignment and postural balance, feelings of relaxation, faster recovery from injury, greater vitality and a sense of overall wellness and emotional balance following Ortho-Bionomy treatments.

Because Ortho-Bionomy is so gentle, it can be of assistance to people of all ages and states of health for the treatment of a vast array of problems and conditions. These include, but are not limited to:

•    Joint and muscle pain
•    Postural Imbalances
•    Whiplash
•    Migraines
•    Fibromyalgia
•    Insomnia
•    Repetitive strain injuries
•    Rotator cuff injuries
•    Knee pain
•    TMJ (Jaw) dysfunction
•    Scoliosis, kyphosis, lordosis
•    Thyroid imbalances
•    Ankle and foot sprains

Ortho-Bionomy treatment takes place fully-clothed and usually on a bodywork table, although it can also be administered seated or standing. Practitioners draw on a range of techniques, both physical and energetic, enabling the appropriate treatment to be specifically tailored to the client’s needs. It is able to be used as a stand-alone treatment or to complement other healing modalities.
