ORTHO-BIONOMY© / RELEASES FOR THE UPPER EXTREMITIES

Instructor: Jim Berns

Most people have pain and discomfort in their upper extremities from their work and play. This class will give you the specific techniques and tools that can help release those pain patterns while keeping your own hands and wrists comfortable. Ortho-Bionomy uses osteopathic-based, painless, and gentle body positions and movements. This method is specific and structure oriented. The techniques of this class can alleviate tension patterns of the shoulders, elbows, scapula, clavicles, wrists, and hands within 10-30 seconds.

We will also look at patterns of tension that begin in the hands and forearms and travel up into the shoulders and neck. We will examine the reflexive tension pattern of overusing your thumbs in your practice that affect your own neck, shoulders and back.

It is easy for the Practitioner and can be integrated into any massage or bodywork session.

This Phase 4 class is NCBTMB approved.

Two Phase 4 classes are a requirement for the Society of Ortho-Bionomy International Associate and Practitioner Training Programs.

No Prerequisite. Bring two sheets.

Tuition: $325.00  ($295.00 if registered 2 weeks before the start of class)
