Teacher: Jim Berns

What you'll learn in this massage class:

Ortho-Bionomy uses Osteopathic-based gentle body positions and movements to stimulate the self-correcting reflexes within the muscles and nerves. These responses can move the client out of pain and discomfort within 10-30 seconds. This method is very specific and structure-oriented. 

Structure Governs Function' is an Osteopathic principle that works with the understanding that when the muscular-skeletal system is balanced properly the functioning (blood, nerve, emotions, meridian) of the body will flow more efficiently.

In this class, you will learn Upper Extremities Techniques and releases for:
  • Shoulders
  • Scapula
  • Elbows
  • Wrist
  • Clavicle
  • All the bones of the hand
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.

No Prerequisite. Bring two sheets to class.
