Conditions Which May Be Addressed 


Body Listening & Healing

Ortho-Bionomy founder Dr. Lincoln Pauls understood that our emotional and mental state directly affects our physical and energetic body and vise versa. It is well researched that sympathetic and parasympathetic states directly affect our immune system, digestive system, create headaches, body pain, and sleep disturbances etc. The energy of an unresolved trauma from an emotional or physical injury can be held in the body. Ortho-Bionomy’s respectful and attentive ‘body listening’ approach allows the possibility for this energy to release. This is not forced in any way but is on the client’s own terms and timing.

A Brief Overview of Ortho-Bionomy

Ortho-Bionomy is an Osteopathic-based, hands-on, therapeutic bodywork that is an effective treatment for both acute and chronic conditions. It is gentle and non-invasive and activates the body’s innate self-correcting reflexes.


An Ortho-Bionomy session is a respectful and comfortable “hands-on” experience. The practitioner may employ a wide range of approaches, none of which use any forced movements or manipulations that cause discomfort.


Ortho-Bionomy is ‘process-oriented’ rather than ‘goal-oriented’ and practitioners work ‘with’ rather than ‘on’ the client – a collaboration that allows the client a greater sense of autonomy over their own healing process.

The History and Lineage of Ortho-Bionomy

In the 1970’s, Dr. Arthur Lincoln Pauls developed a dramatically different system of healing based on the stimulation of the body’s own self-corrective reflexes and utilizing concepts found in Osteopathy, Martial Arts and Homeopathy.

{My first experience with Ortho-Bionomy was amazing! It doesn’t seem like much but I had a sharp pain at the base of my thumb (the saddle joint). I had it for ages; chiropractors massage therapists, no one could “fix” it. During my first Ortho-Bionomy visit, I pointed it out to the Practitioner. She checked it by carefully moving it and asking questions, like “does it feel better this way or that way?” It felt like the muscle in my forearm was “wrapped” around the bone and with gentle touch in about 30 seconds, the pain was gone! And now, if I feel the pain again, I know how to release the muscle by myself. Self-care is an important part of Ortho-Bionomy. Ortho-Bionomy is so gentle – it is wonderful for the elderly or those in acute pain. It helped alleviate my son’s concussion symptoms in one session. And, because it is helps the body to “do the work”, changes last longer than some other therapies. The body seems to relearn a “new normal”.

{The quality of my daily life has been vastly improved by my Ortho-Bionomy treatments. As the name suggests, they have helped my body return to (and retain!) easeful, 'right' alignment. The therapy has been incredibly effective both for a recent, acute knee injury and for some chronic pains that many other modalities had been unable to address meaningfully. Without actually experiencing it, I never would have believed that the principle of "always working within comfort" could increase my range of motion so profoundly.
{After 20 years of persistent sciatic pain from an athletic injury I went for an Ortho-Bionomy session. (I had already tried every other modality). I was so amazed to experience complete relief after 5 gentle sessions. I was so inspired, I studied to become a practitioner. 'Life-changing' is an understatement!
{Due to the physicality of my work, I often have to deal with pain due to repetitive work injury.  Ortho-Bionomy has been more effective than chiropractic, physio, or any other form of pain management and treatment. Since 1992 OB has been my go-to treatment. It has been life changing for me. A bad headache, neck pain and general discomfort can be relieved so efficiently by Ortho-Bionomy in one treatment. The efficacy of the process lasts long after the initial session.
{It’s like dance you have with your own body while you’re just watching on. Just blissful, painless and opens up your world to an understanding about yourself that’s so simple. Highly, highly recommend Ortho-Bionomy.
