Ortho-Bionomy Lecture/Demo

Erin Long, Registered Practitioner

Date: TBD

 

Location: 

Lecture/Demo: Ortho-Bionomy has an astounding ability to access the body’s natural ability to heal itself.  It is elegant work that is gentle and deep.  Ortho-Bionomy embraces the idea that if a body is at ease it has the greatest capacity to receive and process change on all available levels: structural, muscular, the movement of fluids, and greater functioning of the body's systems.

 

In my presentation I will talk about the history and development of Ortho-Bionomy, then I will take a volunteer from the audience so all may see how I work with a client.  If you wish to be considered for the demonstration please wear flexible clothing that bends easily at all the major joints.

This class presents an Ortho-Bionomy approach to restoring the functional movements of the abdomen and the organs of digestion. We will look at the viscera as a community within itself and explore how its movements extend out into the surrounding areas.

In this class, we will explore the sphincters, liver, gallbladder, stomach, intestines and more. We will learn to palpate and sense the organ themselves and how they relate to each other. We will also work with the bony structures and soft tissues that support them.

Come join us and learn how the viscera play a vital role in our health and well being.

Practitioner Training Seminar: An Opportunity to Refine Your Practice

 

Because Ortho-Bionomy sessions are structured differently than many other types of bodywork this course addresses how to structure an Ortho-Bionomy session as well as how to integrate the work with other modalities that the participant may use in his or her practice. Through discussion and hands-on practice the participants will delve deeply into the mechanisms which create sessions that are coherent, fluid and ultimately effective. In addition, issues related to documenting sessions, dealing with the financial dynamics with clients, and creating appropriate boundaries between the client and practitioner are addressed. Participants will be equipped with the skills to bring the professionalism and the compassion that characterize Ortho-Bionomy sessions into his or her practice.
