Ortho-Bionomy was created twenty years ago by Dr. Arthur Lincoln Pauls, an osteopath with training in the martial arts. Pauls wanted a system of bodywork which would teach structural understanding of the body simply and safely enough that anyone could learn to work with their family and friends. Kathy Kain gives clear descriptions of the philosophy and concepts of Ortho-Bionomy. The illustrations and easy-to-understand technical instructions show the standard releases taught in Ortho-Bionomy classes. The student is guided from the beginning of a session to the end, in learning this gentle, effective approach to somatic re-education. Ortho-Bionomy's primary benefit lies in helping people to break the cycle of pain by learning how to correct structural and somatic dysfunction and to release stress. This non-invasive, quick-acting approach is an effective preparation for mobilization, movement and therapeutic exercise.
