"On my first Ortho-Bionomy® session I shuffled into the practitioners office in much the same way manner as Tim Conway on the Carol Burnett show, small steps, feet barely leaving the ground, head held down, wincing from the effort of standing upright.  By the end of the hour I felt 20 years younger.  Due to the pinched nerve pain I had been experiencing for months prior to my appointment I was heavily dosed with pain pills and any other form of numbing agents I could think of.  After my first session my pain medication consumption dropped to half of what it had been, with the amazing result that the pain was nearly gone.  My sleep patterns returned to a normal seven hours a night, my energy, my love of life sparked back into being, and once again I could laugh and smile without forcing those responses.
After five sessions I now stand erect (mostly), walk a mile and a half a day, can care for my family and home, am interested in eating and preparing healthy meals, exercising, social activities, and learning again. I believe all dis-easement is emotional in origin the Ortho-Bionomy® has allowed me to gently start reassessing my beliefs about myself, my abilities, my reasoning, and releasing old patterns that no longer serve my best interest.  As our bodies have a miraculous ability to heal themselves I believe the assistance the Ortho-Bionomy® has provided me is allowing the pathways of inner communication in my system to reconnect and facilitate health quickly, gently, and soon.. fully.
I was a person who had lost the desire to live in a physical form any longer due to pain.  I still experience discomfort, and for now at least have to take some medication but I am energized, consuming two thirds less chemicals (at least) than I was, and am no longer fearing living out the rest of my days in a wheelchair.  I sleep, walk, hope, dream, and live again.  The benefits I have experienced are nothing short of a miracle as far as I am concerned."

"Ortho-Bionomy® helps people break the cycle of pain – without creating pain. It is very effective for recovering from injuries, surgery and stress. It aids the recovery by reducing muscle tension, soothing the joints, increasing flexibility and range of movement, improving circulation and relaxing the entire body.
 Pain tends to ease with Ortho-Bionomy®. Educational movements may be taught to help perpetuate the release of tension and muscle contractions. The release of tension and stress in the body brings about the relief from pain and discomfort. Function, structural alignment, balance and overall well-being improve. These benefits generally continue after the session is finished.
 Sometimes the body’s natural ability to remain balanced is short-circuited by stress, injury, accident, improper posture, emotional experiences or by overtaxing the body’s limits. When the body is out of balance, it adapts as well as it can, but in the process it may create patterns of even greater stress. The simplicity of Ortho-Bionomy® means the practitioner and client may work together to re-educate dysfunctional patterns and restore normal functioning.
 Whether looking for relief from specific discomfort or a safe and effective way to ease stress and promote relaxation, Ortho-Bionomy® can be very beneficial. It can also work in conjunction with other healing systems. It is not a substitute for appropriate medical care, nutrition or exercise."                                                   -Society of Ortho-Bionomy International®

From "Ortho-Bionomy® is an osteopathically-based therapy for the body. Those using Ortho-Bionomy® are treated by trained practitioners, who gently and non-invasively move the body into positions that promote natural healing. The therapy is also said to help the body correct itself of structural imbalances, bad posture and chronic stress. This method of treatment is as philosophical as it is medical, deriving from the homeopathic theory that the body best knows how to correct itself, and thus the best therapy is that which aids the body's self-healing abilities.

Ortho-Bionomy® is said to be able to help with a wide range of problems. It can alleviatechronic pain as well as manage short-term painEven those without injuries may find relief in the therapy's ability to help correct posture and reduce stress. People who undergo treatment may also find that they learn techniques that can be self-applied at home. By reducing stress, the therapy is said to also help with one's emotional, spiritual and mental well-being.

Ortho-Bionomy® was created by a British osteopath named Dr. Arthur Lincoln Pauls. Pauls named his method of therapy Ortho-Bionomy®, a name whose etymological roots describe the main tenets of the treatment. "Ortho" means correct, "bio" is life and "nomy" means the study of something. When put together, Ortho-Bionomy® literally means the correct study of life. Dr. Pauls intended the name to convey that his therapy is one which correctly aids the body in taking its natural course. His theory purported that, if one first worked with the body's natural self-healing processes, full recoveries and healthy lifestyles would be more effectively achieved.

Ortho-Bionomy® practitioners do not force a person's body into any uncomfortable positions. If the patient feels any discomfort, he or she is moved into a more relaxing position. The idea behind this is that the body's joints and muscles are able to move comfortably in such a way as to allow the body to heal itself. The practitioner gently moves a person's body into such positions, taking cues from the patient.

The practice is really less about the practitioner healing the patient, and more about the practitioner helping to stimulate the patient's body into remembering how to best take care of itself. In that sense, the practice is almost as spiritual and philosophical as it is physical, sharing many of the same holistic viewpoints that belong to many Eastern therapies. Anyone can train to become a practitioner of Ortho-Bionomy®. There are various levels of training programs; one can choose to become an advanced practitioner, or go for more basic training."
