Ortho-Bionomy® Immersions
Integrating Techniques for the Way You Work

 
     
 
Continuing Education: NCBTMB-Approved. Approved for Illinois and
most state license renewals for Massage Therapists.
 
 

Associate and Practitioner Certification Available
These three Immersions fulfill coursework requirements for Registration as an Associate Practitioner of Ortho-Bionomy. Hands-on feedback with the instructor is required for approval. This is one-third to one-half of the coursework required to become a Practitioner with the Society of Ortho-Bionomy International.

 
 

Each Immersion integrates the philosophy, principles and creative application of techniques in an easy-to-grasp way. In this way, the student is able to internalize her/his understandings of the work, how the Phases evolve and shift one into the next, and how the other elements of Ortho-Bionomy flow together seamlessly for a thoroughly enjoyable and profoundly beneficial session. This eases and quickens the learning process so that the student comes away empowered to integrate new skills and techniques with current modalities or as a stand-alone session.

A free TeleStudy Group is offered by the instructor to support continued learning, exploration and skill development after each Immersion. Timing will be set in class to fit everyone’s schedules as best we can.

Three Immersions Total 118 units; +9 free, optional TeleStudy Group units.
