Typical Session

Human back in painUnlike a massage session, clients stay clothed for Ortho-Bionomy® and Reiki at Healing Stream Body Wellness. The first time visit includes a discussion of your health history, current complaints, and an assessment of your structural alignment, then onto the table where the healing work begins on.

What to Wear: Wear stretchy clothing since positioning and movement is involved. No oils are used.

Length of Session: approximately 1 1/2 hours

Feedback: Ortho-Bionomy® is an interactive process. Periodically I will check in on your comfort level and ask for your feedback on the preferred direction of movement in a particular area.

Fee: $60 in house or $70 if I travel to you; checks and cash accepted (I work in my home and have a room that is devoted to Healing Stream Body Wellness.)


What if I didn't get relief for all my problems?
The body often continues its self-correction for at least 24 hours after a session. You may feel even better the next day. Also, if your body has been mis-aligned for many years then it isn't likely that everything it needs can be taken care of in one session. It has taken many years to get in this condtion so it will take some time to return to a better alignment.

Why does my body lose the benefits of the session?
Muscles often work together in pairs. One muscle in that pair is probably stronger than the other. Ortho-Bionomy® helps to relax the stronger muscle but it doesn't strengthen the weaker one. Self-care exercises will greatly help your body to maintain a better posture by strenthening the weaker muscles. Usually exercises that target specific areas are suggested after a session. Do these exercises as consistently as possible and you will find that your body holds the improvement longer. Also, everyone has habitual ways of sitting, walking, lifting, and so forth that cause you to return to your former posture. If you pay attention to how you use your body you will discover what these habits are. Ortho-Bionomy® re-educates your body to carry itself in a healthier way and this may need more time than one session can achieve.
