Ortho-Bionomy with Laurianne Fiorentino of BodyBrilliance

Ortho-Bionomy treatments can facilitate a body’s ability to relax, let go, feel safe, feel heard and supported. Laurianne employs Ortho-Bionomy techniques- a modality which blends principles of martial arts and osteopathy – along with some vocal toning and improvisation. This choice is an excellent companion/helper for those exploring and practicing Yoga, Pilates, Chiropractic, Counseling and other paths towards wholeness or healing requiring flexibility, balance, release and grounding.

“Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle, non-invasive, system of healing that reminds the body of its natural ability to restore balance. Its principles are based on a simple and profound philosophy: allow the body to correct itself. The hallmark of Ortho-Bionomy is pain relief.”

Trauma (emotional & physical), injury, scar tissue, aches, pains, stiffness, anxiety, restlessness, surgery & broken bone recovery, and poor circulation are some conditions served by this approach. Where gentleness and caution are called for, the BodyBrilliance approach is very effective when other methods are either too invasive or too vague.  The client remains fully clothed and treatments last an hour. Easy self-care methods are available to the client as well.

People may benefit from Ortho-Bionomy for chronic pain, back pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, sciatica, neck pain, TMJ, joint pain, muscle soreness, reduce stress, scoliosis, carpal tunnel… and more!  For more information, see www.ortho-bionomy.org

What are Ortho-Bionomy sessions like?

Typically, Ortho-Bionomy sessions last approximately an hour. Comfortable, loose fitting clothing is suggested to allow full range of motion. The practitioner works with you to identify areas of discomfort, tension and pain as well as areas of comfort and ease of movement. Gentle movements, comfortable positioning, brief compressions and subtle contacts are used. No forceful movements or pressures are used.  Every Ortho-Bionomy session is specifically designed around your individual needs. Your practitioner will rely on your verbal feedback to fine tune movements which best facilitate your body’s return to natural alignment. Typically, the relief of stress and tension lasts for days or longer after a session.  Your practitioner may suggest self-care release techniques you can do at home. These self-care exercises further aid in relieving pain, restoring function, and re-balancing the body.

What are the Benefits of Ortho-Bionomy? Can it Help with Chronic Pain?

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.
