The Ortho-Bionomy Practitioner training program involves 500 hours of training the courses outlined below will be accredited towards the practitioner program.(more details on the training program can be found on the association website www.ortho-bionomy.org.au)
Ortho-Bionomy training is done in 2 day modules usually held over weekends.
Phase 4 courses are the basics which you will use with a majority of your clients. There are a number of phase 4 courses. most commonly we do 2 days on the core of the body and 2 days focused on the extremities, there can also be additional focuses for instance focussing on upper cross, lower cross & thoracic outlet syndrome or stabilising the L5-S1 joint & pelvic stability. See the course flyers for details of what the course focus will be.
Advanced Phase 4
Advanced Phase 4 classes assume you are familiar with the basics and introduce different techniques.
Posture & Post techniques
Postural techniques are the cornerstone for helping change your clients long term patterns and Post techniques help you clients integrate the changes that occur during a session without creating adverse painful responses (which can occur when part of a postural patterns shifts and another part remains stuck).
Exploration of Movement
Movement can be used to assess where your client has restricted movement, help change the restriction as well as help integrate changes from a specific area into a wider region or the full body. these techniques leave the body feeling loose and relaxed.
Isometrics & Isotonics
Muscles work in groups, using Isometrics & Isotonics we can fine tune the tone of the different muscles as well as help the body balance the opposing muscle groups. This creates increased range of movement and greater stability in the joints.
Ortho-Bionomy self care exercises are an integral part of helping your clients maintain the changes they get in the session as well as enabling you to work on yourself. Self care courses are also open to the general public so people can help themselves.
More advanced courses such as Phase 5, Phase 6, Phase 7, ethics & emotions, visceral work, cranial work, will also be run to help students complete the practitioner training program.
Study group topics
Study groups are 3 hours and can either be on a particular topic or a general review of technique.
Some topics include;
Stabilising the lumbar spine - The lumbar spine is one of the most important areas to stabilise, the techniques shown go well beyond the Phase 4 & Phase 5 releases to create a much more coherent & stable system.
Working with ITB syndrome & femoral rotation so it holds - dealing with runners syndrome
Shoulders - techniques that go beyond the shoulder points. Focused on the anatomy of the shoulder, how to work with frozen shoulder, joint capsule work and stabilising the joint.
Releasing fascia - The techniques shown allow you to rapidly release fascia in a Phase 4 way. This allows structural patterns to change and hold and is useful for creating postural change.
Fine tuning connection - How we connect has a major impact on how our client responds energetically. becoming more aware of how we connect can rapidly improve what you perceive and how you stimulate the self corrective response.
