Volery Syndrome - Reflex 5

This workshop provides an in-depth experience with Volery Reflex 5 and its clinical applications. The founder of Ortho-Bionomy, Arthur Pauls cautioned the practitioner learning this reflex to have patience and "practice, practice, practice. . . ." Only after considerable practice, after you are able to work with comfort and control, will you be able to employ it as a technique.

“Remember the idea behind any exercise is to learn it well enough that it no longer becomes an exercise but rather a natural part of ourselves, like walking." ~ ALP

Cranial, Brain and Organ Balancing
Clearing Stress and Trauma - Restoring Balance and Harmony

Working with great respect for our complex, intelligent life form, we will engage its innate and incredibly effective self-healing and self-organizing nature using the principles of Ortho-Bionomy in new ways to release stored stress and trauma in selected structures pertaining to the topic. Energy balancing reflexes, including Volery Reflex 5, allow us access to areas we literally can't touch, including:
- the brain, specific organs of the brain,
- the nervous system,
- structural elements of the craniosacral system
- and the organs / viscera of the body selected for our topic.

We will discuss the effects of stress and trauma, how and where the body stores this energy and activate the body's own ability to release it and restore balance, as only the body can do for itself. 

Ann Hoeffel, Registered Advanced Instructor of Orrtho-Bionomy® (since 2006), will be sharing information, understandings, skills and techniques gained throughout her practice, trainings and life - especially during the last 10 years. More about Ann's training.

Note: A special thanks to Tiffany Beese for her inspiring work and SOBI Conference presentation, combining Volery Reflex 5 with neuroscience to enhance brain function, substantially improving the quality of life for her clients and inspiring us to do the same. Tiffany was originally scheduled to teach the neuroscience portion of Brain Balancing and share her experiences with clients this weekend. Unfortunately, she needed to cancel. We will surely miss her. Tiffany has a BS specializing in neuroscience and is a Registered Advanced Practitioner of Ortho-BIonomy® and Associate Instructor in New Zealand. We wish her all the best, and send her our love and appreciation.



To my knowledge, Arthur Lincoln Pauls only demonstrated Volery Syndrome for the first rib, and very briefly. At the time, it seemed like a big wind-up for a first rib release when the isometric release I already knew was easy, simple and very effectively relaxed that 1st rib. Uninspired, I didn't explore it. It seems others felt the same because, to my knowledge, very few Advanced Instructors even presented Arthur's brief first rib demonstration.

In 2017, it became very clear that as a community, we knew very little about this reflex. After 2017 SOBI Conference, inspired by Instructor and Practitioner confusion around Volery Reflex 5 and Tiffany Beese's Presentation on Brain Resolution, I delved deeper into exploring it myself and then seeing how clients responded to it. In 2018, I embellished on Arthur's way to teach and explore it further with students.

What's interesting is that we've found this reflex to be extremely useful and beneficial in multiple ways throughout the body. In fact, results are fascinating.

A big thank you to my students who are always encouraging me to share and teach more, more, more of whatever I learn in this amazing field of healing and human life.

They encouraged me to fill the weekend with the new work I've studied and added to my practice on a stress and trauma, where it's stored and how to relieve it, restoring improved function and well-being.
