What is this bodywork called Ortho-Bionomy?

ORTHO means straight or correct, BIO means life, NOMY means pertaining to laws of nature.   


Ortho-Bionomy shows the body, through physical and energetic patterns, how to understand its own functioning.

It’s a "returning" to its most natural state for that space in time.

  • Sessions are always done in comfortable loose clothing.

  • sessions starts with evaluation of how the body presents

  • checking the condition of the tissue and the function

  • check the range of motion and tension

  • hold the joints in a comfortable angle

  • followed by applying gentle compression and holding in that position for 10 to 30 seconds.

  • therapy is ALWAYS done without pain or force.

  • safe and comfortable sessions for Pregnancy welcome

The client often responds by saying they feel like they have melted into the table.

There is a gentle flow to the treatment moving carefully around the client using intuitive and educated moves.

I liken it to playing an instrument, waiting, listening, and getting to know what works and what doesn’t,

being curious and open for things to transpire.

Ortho-Bionomy can help with:

  • Joint and muscle pain

  •  Neck and Back Pain

  • Body pain

  • Headaches/Migraines

  • Empowering the body for Pregnancy

  • Physical conditions associated with stress, depression, anxiety, trauma​. 

Creating a calm still space the body reacts to the information points and gently and subtly starts to

deeply let go of tension and stress.

Ortho-Bionomy helps clients to bring their body out of “Fight or Flight” and into “Rest and Restore”

(the Homeostatic State or the Healing state).

Ortho-Bionomy is a re-education from the nervous system of our ability to return to comfort which is something

we already know from birth.

The history of Ortho-Bionomy?

Dr Author Lincoln Paul's was the founder of Ortho-Bionomy in the 1970’s.

He was a Judo instructor in England and many students would come to him for injuries which eventually lead him to study Osteopathy. He still hadn’t got the nurturing way of Judo movements until he stumbled on the work of Dr Lawrence Jones D.O., an American Osteopath – the work was called Spontaneous Release by Positioning. Paul's discovered, you move WITH the body not against it, allowing the body to find its own balance without force. A combination of his Judo experience, Osteopathic training, his knowledge of various systems such as homeopathy, and the approach outlined in "Jones" work then became Ortho-Bionomy.
