When the body is relaxed,
then the soul will also feel lighter.


Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle, non-invasive way to communicate with the body, instead of working on the body. A conversation with your body takes place, full of respect for you as an individual. Carefully selected positions and gentle touches allow the body to rediscover comfort and to find its natural inner balance. Your body and your energy can then be free of tension and stress.


The Ortho-Bionomy practitioner gently follows the body's  inner rhythm, taking note of the existing muscle tone, in order to ascertain the  natural posture and movement patterns. In this relaxed position, muscles and tendons can unwind, stress and emotional tensions can be released, leaving a deep feeling of peace and harmony. Old patterns of misuse can be replaced by long-term flexibility and comfort. New patterns of assurance and structural balance can be discovered.

What is a qualified Ortho-Bionomy
Practitoner trained to do?


The Ortho-Bionomy training includes the following elements, which gives an idea of the wide variety of possible applications:

  • Structural techniques for the musculoskeletal systems of the body: cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine; thorax and ribs; pelvis; hip, knee, ankle and foot joints; shoulder, elbow, hand and finger joints.
  • Further training in the dynamic techniques, in order to support the integration of the structural techniques as well as to improve the increased physiological function: For the whole musculo-skeletal system, for scars, the navel and for the Chakren energy centres.
  • Neurolymphatic reflex points (after Chapman and Goodheart) for the treatment of the inner organs as well as particular muscle groups.
  • Isometric and isotonic techniques for muscle relaxation.
  • Energetic techniques and reflexes as well as Aura work.
  • Visceral techniques for the organs, the digestive system, and the fascia.
  • Craniosacral techniques for the head, eyes, central nervous system, upper and lower jaw.
