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

 
 


Immersions foster deep learning - Invest in yourself - Enhance your skills.


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

Practitioner and Advanced Practitioner Certification Available
The Immersions empower students in learning how to integrate skills and techniques to provide a fulfilling experience for their clients. Students also fulfill coursework requirements for Registration as an Associate Practitioner of Ortho-Bionomy, which is one-third to one-half of coursework required to become a Practitioner. Hands-on feedback with the instructor is required for approval. Additional classes are offered throughout the year. All coursework qualifies for Advanced Practitioner Training as well.

Interest in certification is not required to register for any workshop. Everyone is welcome.

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 for a more immediate and complete understanding of the work and for hands-on skillset. The student comes away empowered to integrate new skills and techniques with current modalities or as a stand-alone session.

TeleStudy Groups may be offered by the instructor to support continued learning, exploration and skill development with the Immersion. Timing will be set to fit everyone's schedules as best we can.

Three Immersions Total 118 workshop units.

ENERGY Integrated Immersion: Hands-on, Hands-off Energy Work
- Integrating Ortho-Bionomy "Phases" or Dimensions of Physical, Energetic and Energy Field/Aura Balancing

Achieve pain-free pain relief by resolving the underlying cause of muscular and structural imbalances for the whole body on different dimensions or levels of awareness, known as "phases". Positioning for structural alignment is integrated with more subtle body unwinding, fascia melting, energetic reflexes for alignment, biofield or aura and chakra balancing.

Learn assessments, release, re-balancing and integration techniques and how the principles of self-healing operate at each level or "phase". By learning and practicing the phases in this integrated immersion format, students gain a better understanding of when each phase may be most appropriate, get clear on how the principles and reflexes work in each phase, develop ease in moving between the phases and achieve maximum benefit for the client when back at the office.

40 CE Hours / 40 units Ortho-Bionomy Practitioner Programs, including:
- 8 Phase 4 (Positioning), 16 Phase 5 and the Four Reflexes, 16 Phase 6 and Reflexes 5, 6, 7. These workshops are part of the Ortho-Bionomy core curriculum and are required for Associate and Practitioner certifications.
- Interest in certification is not required for registration. Register below.
