Unique Body Therapy helps people and horses!
Dr. Anna Hayes returned to North Shropshire in 2017 after spending over 20 years in Germany. She has brought back expert knowledge of a unique body therapy which is taught worldwide and is popular in Germany. Ortho-Bionomy® helps to ease pain in muscles, tendons and joints whilst also releasing stress and emotional tensions. She discovered Ortho-Bionomy® after suffering a serious head injury which left her unable to walk and confined to a darkened room for three months. A German Ortho-Bionomy® practitioner put her back on her feet and leading a normal life in just a few weeks. 'That lady was my saviour' Anna says 'and I needed to know how she did it!'
Anna started to study Ortho-Bionomy® in 2007 and then set up her own successful practice near Hanover in 2012. Since then Anna has helped many people suffering from back and joint pains, accident and injury damages as well as stress and nervousness, amongst other things. She has helped quite a few horses with similar issues too and teaches Equine Bodywork following the principles of Ortho-Bionomy®.
'People like Ortho-Bionomy® because it's a very gentle therapy with no painful positions and manipulations' says Anna. 'Gentle touches and carefully selected positions whilst fully clothed encourage your body to find its own comfort and natural balance. And because your body then continues to heal itself there is usually no need for a lot of ongoing treatment. Normally one treatment every one or two weeks is enough input for your body to work with. Nothing will be “corrected”, but your body will be animated to find its own solutions and this may take some time. From experience 2 or 3 treatments are usually important in order to consolidate the initial work. It is important to remember however, that healing, in a holistic sense, is a process, a life-long process. Ortho-Bionomy® can accompany your body to find its own position of ease in its own time, during this process.'
Anna has recently become the practice manager of the A1 Body ConneXions team on Wharf Road in Ellesmere. If you should be interested in finding out more about how the Ortho-Bionomy® may be able to help you give her a call on 07377 315865.
