Ortho-Bionomy was developed by Dr Arthur Lincoln Pauls, a British osteopath, who wanted to find a way to work which honours the body’s inherent wisdom.
His interest was to interact with the body without the use of force, in order to correct structural imbalances.
Dr Pauls’ practices built on the work of earlier osteopaths who discovered that they could correct structural imbalances by holding joints in comfortable positions which spontaneously released the imbalance. He found ‘reflexes’ within the body.
These reflexes are present throughout all body tissues and direct the our ability to self-correct when given the appropriate neurological information and structural support.
