Phase 4: Spine

This class is designed to introduce the practitioner to the foundations of Ortho-Bionomy. We will begin with an introduction covering history, philosophy and the basic concepts of Ortho-Bionomy. You will learn gentle movements and positions of comfort to help release muscular tension and overall stress. Basic release techniques taught will facilitate working with all major joints. These techniques will allow the client's body to utilize self-correcting reflexes and guide the client to achieve structural alignment and balance from within. Primary area of focus will be the spine and pelvis. For arms and legs see Phase 4 Extremities.

Phase 4: Extremities

This class is designed to introduce the practitioner to the foundations of Ortho-Bionomy. Basic release techniques taught will facilitate working with all major joints in the body. Movements and positions of comfort are demonstrated to facilitate the release of muscular tension and overall stress by stimulating the inherent, self-corrective reflexes of the body which help the body create structural alignment and balance from within. Primary area of focus will be the shoulder, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet. For the spine and pelvis see Phase 4 Spine.

Phase 5

The focus of Phase Five is to move to a more subtle level of awareness of the practice and principles of Ortho-Bionomy. Specific techniques develop and increase the student's understanding and proprioceptive sensitivity to the self-corrective movements initiated by the client. Through the practice of observing, following and supporting subtle movement patterns, muscular tension is released, range of motion is increased and pain is reduced. In Phase Five, students are encouraged to do less and let the client be the guide for his/her exploration of change.

Phase Six

This class is designed to help participants access and track energetic perception in themselves and in their clients. Techniques will be presented that demonstrate how energetic shifts can affect changes in the physical body. You will learn where to start a session for optimum results with your individual clients. Learn how to make contact without engaging physically. You will learn about the reflexes of the body and how feeling these reflexes helps you as the practitioner be in correct timing with your client, improving trust and effectiveness. Learn how to feel the physical and energetic bodies that make us whole human beings and facilitate them into better balance.
Back to Top

Phase Seven

This class looks at the various ways that Practitioners learn the art of presence to another being. We will look at how to recognize a pattern at the most subtle of levels. This class also looks at the template pattern that Arthur Lincoln Pauls, founder of Ortho-Bionomy used to 'tune-in’ and help balance energetic & physical patterns. Different ways of applying the concept of Phase 7 will be explored.
Back to Top

Isometrics and Isotonics

Isometric and isotonic techniques for working with inefficient muscular tension patterns are presented and practiced. Through the use of these techniques the self-correcting reflexes are stimulated and habitual holding patterns can be released. Participants learn how to support & exaggerate the clients tension pattern. Helping the client find greater mobility and allowing the client to actively participate in the session.
Back to Top

Exploration of Movement

This course focuses on the observation and exploration of joint and muscle movement patterns. The participant will learn how to follow the body's movement preferences to enhance the fluid motion between the joints and muscles of the body. The techniques of Ortho-Bionomy will allow you to facilitate the release of the acute and chronic holding patterns that create the pain that goes with these patterns of tension. Releasing these patterns increases range of motion. You will learn palpation and sensing skills that will increase the effectiveness of your bodywork style.
Back to Top

Postural Re-Education & Post Techniques

This class focuses on the spine, its natural curves, movement, and the dysfunctional patterns which create our postures. Participants learn to evaluate and address inefficient postural habits through accurate observation and simple exercises. Techniques to work with spinal curvatures such as scoliosis, lordosis & kyphosis are presented and practiced. Post techniques focus on assessing and releasing areas of tension in the spine & ribcage, which are responsible for improper postural holding patterns. These techniques bring intrinsic movement to the spine and rib cage relationship, as well as integrating the work done in a session. In addition, movement awareness techniques are taught to facilitate the client's ability to maintain this new balance through the neuro-muscular re-education of postural habits.

Chapman's Reflexes

This class presents the Chapman's Reflexes system of identifying and stimulating reflex points to facilitate lymphatic drainage and the balancing of the organs. The class also focuses on the relationship between the neurolymphatic reflexes and the endocrine system and its affect on structural balance as well as the individual's physical and emotional well-being.
Back to Top

Elements of a Successful Practice

This class addresses the business side of having an Ortho-Bionomy practice. Participants learn about issues such as marketing and advertising, developing a business plan, setting up an office, setting fees, and attending to tax and legal issues. The class also covers communication with clients, record keeping and staying within the scope of practice.
Back to Top

Demonstration Skills

In this class participants learn how to describe and present Ortho-Bionomy to family, friends and the public in general. Participants are encouraged to find ways to communicate the "unexplainable" and practice presenting Ortho-Bionomy in a clear and accurate way. Techniques for building confidence and for improving public speaking and presentation are included.

Cranial (2 day class)

This course focuses on the observation & exploration of movement within the cranial bones. The paticipant will learn how to work with the facial muscles and bones in addition to the bones & muscles of the cranium. Discussion, demonstration and practice are utilized to explore the possibilities in all of the Phases when working with this area. Cranial is a required course for the Advanced Practitioner Program.
Back to Top

Cranial & the Visceral Zones (3 day class)

This workshop looks at the Ortho-Bionomy approach to working with the Cranium and it’s relationship to the pelvis. In addition we will explore the connections to the zones of the head & face that refer to the Viscera of the body. This workshop will consist of lecture, demonstrations and hands-on practice time. Cranial is a required course for the Advanced Practitioner Program.

The Bowstring (2 day class)

The 'bowstring' is the line of fascia that starts at the base of our skulls and then goes anteriorly down our bodies connecting us three dimensionally back to front. Much like the string on a bow, when contracted, it keeps our bodies bowed forward. To release the over stretched back muscles you must first release this anterior fascia. This 2 day class teaches the anatomical locations of the Bowstring and the Ortho-Bionomy techniques that release the holding patterns of this fascia

The Bowstring and its Effect on the Viscera (3 day class)

The 'bowstring' is the line of fascia that starts at the base of our skulls and then goes anteriorly down our bodies connecting us three dimensionally back to front. Much like the string on a bow, when contracted, it keeps our bodies bowed forward. To release the over stretched back muscles you must first release this anterior fascia. This fascia is also connected to the internal organs. This 3 day class teaches the anatomical locations of the Bowstring and the Ortho-Bionomy techniques that release the holding patterns of this fascia, as well as the interconnections and releases for such internal organs as the liver, bladder, uterus & diaphragm. This helps with postural problems as well as chronic structural tension patterns.

Working with Fibromyalgia

This class focuses on the characteristics of Fibromyalgia and the stressors that may help create the physical imbalances that cause it’s discomfort. The principles of Ortho-Bionomy can be applied in many different circumstances and situations, providing participants with more specialized approaches and applications. We will explore how Ortho-Bionomy can help those with Fibromyalgia balance their bodies with more comfort and range of motion.

Understanding the Principles and Reflexes of Ortho-Bionomy

This one day class will explore the foundational concepts of Ortho-Bionomy. The principles and Reflexes used in Ortho-Bionomy guide the practitioner to understanding the variant timings that occur in their client’s bodies. Feeling these reflexes and applying the principles are essential skills to becoming a better practitioner. Being in tune with these reflexes are what sculpt the individual sessions that bring a unique sweetness to Ortho-Bionomy.
Back to Top

Ethics and Emotional Issues

Participants learn skills for addressing emotional responses that may arise during a session in an appropriate and professional manner. In addition, participants discuss the guidelines for professional conduct and review the Society of Ortho-Bionomy International's Code of Ethics.
Back to Top

Practitioner Training Seminar

This seminar addresses issues and questions that arise for individuals completing the Practitioner Training Programs and helps participants synthesize their entire training experience. The class format includes time to discuss questions or problems that arise during a session, an opportunity to receive feedback and supervision about difficult cases, and information on how to best structure a session, set fees, and communicate with clients. Participants can also discuss their changing role in the community as they move from being a student to becoming a professional in the health care field.

Trauma Resolution

Many of the structural imbalances that Practitioner’s deal with in their sessions are related to some type of traumatic event. These events lock up the tissues of our body, creating unconscious holding patterns. In this class we will explore the different possibilities of using Ortho-Bionomy when working with the various patterns created by our life experiences. Releasing the tension patterns from past accidents, injuries and surgery will be some of the topics of discussion.
Back to Top

TMJ

This workshop looks at the tension patterns that create Temporal Mandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ) and how to use Ortho-Bionomy principles to help release these patterns. Discussion, demonstration & practice are utilized to enhance the practitioners understanding of how to restore balance to the function of this joint.
Back to Top

TMJ & the Whiplash Connection

This class looks at the connections between TMJ and Whiplash. We will look at the 3-D connections that intertwine and cause symptoms like angina, indigestion and headaches. How these common patterns effect the overall structural balance and how Ortho-Bionomy can shift the imbalance will be discussed and practiced.
Back to Top

Visceral

This Ortho-Bionomy elective is taught only by Advanced Instructors. Learn about the relationship of emotions with internal organs. Areas covered in this class include: liver, lung, and gall bladder flushes, pelvic/uterus balancing, diaphragm and pancreas releases as well as tips on dealing with hiatal hernias.

Working with metal in the body (Plates, Screws, Mesh, Rods, Etc…..) and their related scars

LIFE HAPPENS and the results are not always what we would like. Sometimes metal needs to be put in our bodies to help hold us together. These foreign to the body prosthetics can be worked with and integrated with the bone and soft tissues of the body. This class looks at how Ortho-Bionomy may be used in these cases.

Residentials

Arthur loved residentials as a forum to learn Ortho-bionomy at a deeper level. “ Getting ourselves out of our ordinary reality allows us to explore the inner reality of Ortho-Bionomy”. The part of the work that needs to be ‘caught’ not ‘taught’, happens at a residential on an exponential scale - the essence and inner connectedness underneath the form. While learning the energetic dance between the phases, you find your own rhythmic dance with Ortho-Bionomy which is beyond technique. That which is unable to be articulated, a visceral experience that is not limited by our rational mind or the language we speak. A state of mind where learning takes place by doing less and being more. You find the art underneath the form.

Terri Lee has been attending or teaching residentials since 1983, teaching one to four a year. It is her wish that all students walk away from a residential feeling more at ease with the dance of Ortho-Bionomy. Her objective is to meet the students where they are and take them where they say they want to go. To facilitate their learning to apply the principles at a deeper more personal level of awareness. A residential with Terri is custom woven by the requests of the students at the time of the workshop. The content is determined at the beginning of the workshop and is shifted each day as is necessary to meet the changing needs of the students. The goal is always the same: to become more comfortable in our own skins. To explore the dance of Ortho-Bionomy in relationship to all things outside & within us and become more at ease at being ourselves. The Art of Ortho-Bionomy
