Ortho-Bionomy

Ortho-Bionomy® is a gentle, non-invasive bodywork therapy that re-educates the body through self-corrective reflexes to find ease and balance.

Ortho-Bionomy:

• Provides relief from chronic & acute pain.
• Promotes restorative rest.
• Encourages faster healing from injuries.
• Supports natural, pain-free body alignment.
• Increases ease of movement.
• Nurtures the body in recovery from trauma.

Typical Session


There is NO PAIN during any part of an Ortho-Bionomy session. Practitioners work with the client to find a position of ease and comfort for the body. Some of the techniques used to facilitate these positions include: gentle movement or compression of the joints, energetic connection with the body, isometrics, movements to facilitate flow, and teaching of self-care exercises.

Ortho-Bionomy happens on a massage table, fully clothed. Loose, comfortable clothing is recommended for full range of movement. Sessions are approximately one hour in length.

Ortho-Bionomy gently exaggerates preferred positions of the body, which allows the body to notice where it is in contrast to where it could be more efficiently comfortable. In other words, the body recognizes an imbalance and finds its way back to balance through self-corrective reflexes.

An important element in each session is communication with the client – careful listening. Ortho-Bionomy always works away from pain and towards ease and comfort: with the body, not against it. The body is never forced into change, which can cause it to fight or resist in opposition. Each session is specific to the client’s individual needs at the time of that session. No two sessions are alike.

Ortho-Bionomy is best understood by experiencing it. We recommend the first three sessions occur in a minimum of six-weeks’ time to afford your body the opportunity to know whether the work resonates.

History of Ortho-Bionomy

Rooted in osteopathy, Ortho-Bionomy was developed in the 1970s by Arthur Lincoln Pauls, D.O. Dr. Pauls sought a natural, consistent, and lasting way to ease his patients’ pain. Inspired by the body’s ability for self-correction, he combined the concepts of holding slack and comfort on a joint with elements of compression. Through continued research, Dr. Pauls expanded the work to include release and balance in the body through movement and energy; he also incorporated work with the organs, fluids, and other systems of the body. Dr. Pauls eventually named the work Ortho-Bionomy, meaning “correct life study.”
