Ortho-Bionomy developed out of Osteopathy in the mid 1970's.
Ortho-Bionomy treats your body as an intelligent system. Your body has a protective mechanism that helps you avoid injury and to enable you to compensate if you are injured. Think about how your body changes when you sprain your ankle, your weight shifts automatically to reduce the impact on the sore joint.
You also have a self-corrective mechanism that heals your body if something goes wrong. This works not only for things like healing a cut or recovering from a cold but also on musculoskeletal conditions like those listed below. When pain persists your body needs 2 things.
1. The right information in order for the body to understand the dysfunction so that it can self-correct
2. The body needs to feel safe enough in order for the protective mechanism can relax which will allow the body to change.
In essence this is what we do with Ortho-Bionomy. We put in specific information that the body can use to understand the dysfunction and then make the body feel safe enough to change.
Working this way is far more efficient as we stimulate the body to change itself and become more functional. Working this way with the nervous system allows muscles to relax , bones realign and creates more stability at the joints.
As the nervous system is sensitive we don't need to use forced manipulations or painful techniques.
Often using force or creating pain while trying to "fix" the body will make the body feel threatened, this turns on the protective mechanism which slows down the rate of change of the underlying dysfuction.
Ortho-Bionomy also works on the relationship between suppressed emotion and the physical body, if you have ever experienced grief, stress or heartbreak you will know how powerful emotions can be and how the body function changes when strong emotions are happening in your life. When we suppress emotions or are traumatised these functional changes can become stuck. With the Ortho-Bionomy approach we release the body and the emotions release by themselves. There is no need to discuss the situation or trauma in order to have it released.
Ortho-Bionomy has been found to help conditions such as;
If you have any of the above conditions book a session today, you will be amazed at how approaching the body differently will lead to different results.
Ortho-Bionomy is also great for increasing the performance of athletes. Releasing tension and realigning the skeletal structure can help improve efficiency of movements and reduce the risk of injury. Ortho-Bionomy increases the length of the gait, the range of movement and the stability of the joints.

"I had been putting up with some nerve pain in my back & hip from a training accident for a few months before trying Ortho-Bionomy. After only a couple of appointments with Rob my body was back in its natural position and my running and recovery time had improve dramatically. I would highly recommend this treatment for both injuries & greater health."
"Amazing. I am not having as many headaches. My back pain is better and my chest pain is less....I'm feeling a lot better and I have a lot more energy"
"I found it to release a lot of tension in the joint and eased the pain dramatically.....a lot of pain relief nearly down to no pain at all"
"I dislocated my shoulder and 6 months later it still hadn't healed. I looked for alternatives to surgery and after one session with Rob I was amazed at how much it improved. I had much more movement and less pain. The exercises he gave me seem to have helped dramatically. My only problem is that we live too far away to have more sessions! I have no hesitation in recommending him."
"Ortho-Bionomy has made the most enormous difference to my life"
"Upon receiving treatment during a Volleyball tournament I had immediate relief of some of my shoulder pain. The exercises helped my shoulder to sit in a stronger position thus reducing my pain. I would have like to have had the opportunity to do more sessions with Rob and to have had the treatment outside of a tournament to be able to see the real potential of this treatment without the impact of having to play a tournament at the same time. I would recommend that people are open to this type of treatment for relief of their pain.
It has now been around 10 months since receiving treatment from Rob and my shoulder has still zero pain. It truly is an amazing, gentle, relaxing treatment that Rob practices and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
He has truly changed my life. Thanks Rob.
"Ortho-bionomy is completely different to any therapy I've ever had. I would recommend it to anybody"
