Ortho-bionomy- System of working
with reflexes developed by Arthur Lincoln Pauls in the 1970's, who was
a Osteopath and Judo instructor. He studied the work of Lawrence
Jones. Orthobionomy means "correct life study" or " science
of laws pertaining to life". The system uses gentle, relaxing movements
and comfortable postures to ease the body into positions that unblock tensions
and release muscular patterns. Gentle, non-intrusive, non-forceful
movements encourage natural structural realignment and balance. In Ortho-bionomy,
movements and gentle manipulations find the position of comfort in response
to a pain then accentuate that release. When in pain, the body tends to
adopt certain positions to accommodate. Ortho-bionomy places the client
in the most comfortable position that helps alleviate the pain, then works
from there to release the core problem.
