         Time: 9am - 6:00pm

         Workshop Price: early bird $300, regular price of $350 after 6/8/24

                                          

         CE's: 16 NCBTMB AND Florida CE credit through Ortho-Bionomy in Florida                             an approved provider by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic                         Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).

        Prerequisites: none

           

        Location: Mind Body Institute

                         1556 Crestview Drive, Madison, TN 37115

Isometric and isotonic techniques offer the opportunity to work with inefficient muscular tension patterns, tone muscle tissue that has become flaccid, and smooth out any bumps or jittery grabs within the muscle spindles.  By restraining movement or toning through movement while a muscle is engaged, we stimulate the nervous system and reciprocal inhibition, cue the self-correcting reflexes into action, and greater balance between opposing muscles or muscle groups is encouraged.  

 

The process is remarkably quick, 8-10 seconds, and offers us a powerful tool to open stuck or contracted areas that do not respond to other techniques. The client is an active participant in this process, bringing self-awareness and recognition of the work.  In this class isometric and isotonic exercises will be taught and practiced offering relief from chronic pain, rigid muscle patterns, postural imbalances, and more.

In the aura we are free from the confines of gravity and physicality able to notice our client’s whole being, with a broader context. Phase 6 also gives us tools to look more deeply into the body and be more specific.

 

Phase 6 gives us tools to enhance the efficiency of our work in the other phases and affect the physical body without necessarily having physical contact. Deepen your understanding of the nervous system, the energy field, and the relationship between the energetic and physical being. Come join us for a weekend filled with exploration, fun, and wonder.

Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle, non-invasive, system of healing that reminds the body of its natural ability to restore balance. We use light touch, gentle movements and place clients into positions of comfort to help trigger the bodies self-correcting reflexes. Ortho-Bionomy helps relieve pain, increase range of motion, correct posture, creates a sense of relaxation and wellbeing.

 

In this class we will use Ortho-Bionomy techniques to explore the urinary tract and the reproductive system. We will work with the individual organs and look at their relationship to each other. We will also look at the surrounding soft tissues and the supporting structures.  We will work with the kidneys, ureters, bladder, uterus, prostate, ovaries, spine, pelvis, and the pelvic floor.
