Ortho-Bionomy© / Advanced Energy Releases

Instructor: Jim Berns
We are more than our muscles and bones. We are our energy, emotions, and all the experiences that have led us to this moment. How would it feel to connect to all of who we are?
 
Advanced Energy (Phase 6) Ortho-Bionomy provides you with the awareness and sensitivity that all around us and through us: our bones, muscles, and organs, there is energy. When we make contact with this energy in our clients and ourselves, we feel recognized and can respond at a deeper level. This level of Ortho-Bionomy can allow our clients to experience themselves profoundly, physically and energetically.
In This Class You Will:

  • Learn to make contact with more of your client’s essence: Physically, Emotionally, and Energetically.
  • Help your clients discover even deeper places of quietness and relief that will surprise them and you.
  • Fine-tune the energy of your own body in order to release your client’s tensions.
  • Amaze your clients by how little it takes from you to release their pain.
  • Have practical applications of integrating energy into your practice

The skills and sensitivity gained from this class can be used throughout your practice with any modality that you use.

The Phase 6 Class is a required class for the Society of Ortho-Bionomy International Associate, Registered Practitioner and Advanced Practitioner Programs.

ORTHO-BIONOMY© / Exploration of Movement

Instructor: Jim Berns

Movement in the client’s body can tell us so much about where they are open and flexible and where they are holding old patterns of injuries and restrictions.

In the hands-on Ortho-Bionomy EXPLORATION OF MOVEMENT Class we will be adding movement as an additional tool to help our clients be more open, pain-free, and flexible. The hands-on Exploration of Movement Class gives you techniques and develops your sensitivity of moving the body on the table to evaluate where deeper blockages are, use hands-on movements to release the blockages, integrate at a very deep level in the body, and so much more.

In this Class, You Will Learn To:

  • Use Movement to Evaluate where restrictions are in your client’s body
  • Use very specific Movements to Release their Tension and Holding Patterns
  • Use Movement to Give Your Client a Deeper Experience of their own boundaries and edges
  • Use Movement to Create an Incredibly Fluid Flowing Treatment

One of the principles of Exploration of Movement is that certain muscle contractions and trauma are created through different kinds of movements – an accident, an emotional trauma, or a repetitive motion. We use gentle and painless hands-on movements to release that specific contraction or trauma. The body recognizes the movement and releases the contractions.

ORTHO-BIONOMY© / Ethics and Emotional Issues

Instructor: Jim Berns

How does it work, that when you are clear within yourself and with your clients about your own integrity, emotional responses, and boundaries, that this allows your work to go even deeper?

In the Ortho-Bionomy / Ethics and Emotional Issues class we will journey into the experiential discovery of how being clear within our body and our emotions can allow us to be better practitioners.

Within this 2 day Class You Will Learn To:

  1. Establish and maintain your own boundaries and grounding with appropriate flexibility.
  2. Practice where in our body we feel our center and core, how we can get thrown off center, and how to return to center in a more strong and solid place with integrity and respect.
  3. Know your skills, limitations, and blind spots.
  4. Embody the work in and out of session.
  5. Develop a response within yourself that maintains your core philosophy.

The skills and sensitivity gained from this class can be used throughout your practice with any modality that you use.
