"...and Christy's work has helped bring my leg back to a condition that otherwise wouldn't have been possible trying to do this on my own. I can feel that she cares about my well being in a way that wasn't like what I had experienced at any of the physical therapy clinics."

ORTHO-BIONOMY® AND ME©

March 02, 2007 Christy Friederich


When the mind becomes quiet and receptive there is

a new experience of a Being in the body.
 

As a massage and bodywork practitioner I combine principles, concepts and processes of Ortho-Bionomy with therapeutic massage, Biofeedback Somatic Touch©, postural analysis, polarity therapy and many other disciplines in the holistic health field. This unique combination gives you the opportunity for a new and extraordinary experience of deep relaxation, nurturing, rejuvenation and change. As a result of the you learn trust the body’s ability to self-heal and re-balance.

 

"Less is More"   ~ Dr. Arthur Lincoln Pauls

 

In my table work, as a facilitator, I follow the principle stated here by using gentle touch and gentle movements that will help them to sense their muscular tension patterns. This is an interior to exterior conscious approach. The techniques that I use will assist you to learn how to listen to your body's messages in order to learn the about the specific and basic postural and movement needs for keeping your body centered balance and good health.


After a series of session you will find that stress and pains are reduced. With the increased blood and lymph circulation that results you will notice long lasting changes and improvement in the range of motion of muscles and joints. Fears about stiffness, aches and pains are relieved. With each visit you will experience an increase of comfort and and new sense of ease in your body.

 
"Because of the fear factor often involved in accidental injury --- for example, in a car accident or a severe fall creating shock and trauma --- the body may react by keeping that spasm going much longer than necessary, even for years. The original reflex to tense up may have prevented a broken neck, but when the tension persists, even for years, it becomes a whiplash injury. Ortho-Bionomy works on the fear pattern, which created the problem, but only under safe circumstances where there is no threat. We do this by finding the preferred posture for the affected part of the body and, in a sense, working backward to undo the damage. The preferred posture tells us what the body is attempting to protect."
Dr. Arthur Lincoln Pauls, D.O. Founder
 


Gradually as you experience a new sense of integration, health and well-being you will learn to trust the body’s ability to self-heal and re-balance.
