Ortho-Bionomy® Immersions
Integrating Techniques for the Way You Work


These thorough, in-depth learning experiences are designed to guide students in achieving proficiency
and, ultimately, excellence in the practice of Ortho-Bionomy®. Whether as a stand-alone treatment,
or as integrated with other modalities, Ortho-Bionomy resolves the underlying cause of pain and body imbalances. That's why it is so effective.


 
 

Immersions foster deep learning - Invest in your business and yourself
Get better results with clients - Work with ease - Prolong your career
- Experience the benefits in your own body -


 
 

Continuing Education Approved Provider:
NCBTMB-Approved Provider. Approved for Illinois and most state license renewals for Massage Therapists.

 
 

Certification option:
These three Immersions fulfill coursework requirements for Registration as an Associate Practitioner with the Society of Ortho-Bionomy International. Hands-on feedback with the instructor is required as approval. And what an opportunity for learning one-on-one, expertly guided and infused with an instructor's (30 + years) extensive training and clinical experience! This marks a milestone in your training and is one-third to one-half of the coursework required to become a Practitioner.

 
 


Interest in certification is not required to register for any workshop. Everyone is welcome.

Each Immersion integrates the philosophy, principles and creative application of techniques in an easy-to-grasp way. In this way, the student is able to internalize her/his understandings of the work, how the Phases evolve and shift one into the next, and how the other elements of Ortho-Bionomy flow together seamlessly for a thoroughly enjoyable and profoundly beneficial experience for clients. This eases and quickens the learning process for a more immediate and complete understanding of the work and for establishing excellent hands-on skills. The student comes away empowered to integrate new skills and techniques with current modalities or as a stand-alone session.

Additional classes are offered throughout the year.

TeleStudy Groups may be offered by the instructor to support students in continued learning, exploration and skill development with the work. Timing will be set to fit everyone's schedules as best we can.

SPINE Integrated Immersion: Alignment for The Spine, Pelvis & Ribcage
Integrating Positioning, Movement and Post Techniques

In this immersion students learn how to achieve pain-free pain relief by resolving the underlying cause of muscular, fascial and joint restrictions that cause pain and disrupt function. Included are techniques for mobilizing every vertebra in the spine, the sacrum, pelvis and ribcage, ultimately restoring alignment. Four ways to release the psoas without causing pain, a significant factor in low back pain, sciatica, pelvic pain and postural problems. Neck pain, whiplash, headaches, hard-to-detect pain patterns in the back that relate to the ribs and other conditions are resolved when structure and function are restored for the spine, pelvis and ribcage.

Dynamic work with movement is the ultimate assessment tool, identifying where to work in seconds, allowing the therapist to get results with ease. Movement in integrated with positioning to further release restrictions in joints and whole body movement patterns. Post techniques take releases deeper, further mobilizing joints and clearing pain patterns for immediate and long-lasting benefits.

Students report how easy it is to apply new techniques and skills, and get great results with their clients the very next day at work! While many students integrate Ortho-Bionomy principles and techniques with their current modalities, students will also come away with a protocol for how to structure a stand-alone Ortho-Bionomy session, as well as ideas for how to draw new clients with their new skills, and promote new skills to current clients. Read what students and clients say.

ENERGY Integrated Immersion: Hands-on, Hands-off Energy Work
- Integrating Ortho-Bionomy "Phases" or Dimensions of Physical, Energetic and Energy Field/Aura Balancing

Achieve pain-free pain relief by resolving the underlying cause of muscular and structural imbalances for the whole body on different dimensions or levels of awareness, known as "phases". Positioning for structural alignment is integrated with more subtle body unwinding, fascia melting, energetic reflexes for alignment, biofield or aura and chakra balancing.

Learn assessments, release, re-balancing and integration techniques and how the principles of self-healing operate at each level or "phase". By learning and practicing the phases in this integrated immersion format, students gain a better understanding of when each phase may be most appropriate, get clear on how the principles and reflexes work in each phase, develop ease in moving between the phases and achieve maximum benefit for the client when back at the office.

No pre-requisites.
