Thirty-five years in private practice and thirty years teaching Ortho-        Bionomy Self-Care seminars have convinced me that people are motivated and capable to work with themselves to relieve pain if they have the information and tools to do so.

In Self Care Seminars I observe the empowering results, and the effectiveness of educating individuals to attune to comfort and to apply the principles and techniques of Ortho-Bionomy for pain relief.

Ortho-Bionomy A Path to Self Care presents gentle body positions, postures, and movements that release pain and promote comfort and  can be done by yourself without the use of special equipment.  Illustrated with detailed photos and  drawings, the book follows the structure of the body, guiding the reader through positions and exercises, anatomical explanations, and concepts about healing.

This comprehensive book includes clear step-by-step instructions for therapeutic self-care exercises that anyone can do to relieve their own pain in minutes. 

Written in accessible language, it incorporates simple anatomical descriptions, personal stories and anecdotes to capture interest, clarify concepts and support understanding. 

The therapeutic exercises are designed to be user friendly, easy to apply, yet profound in their ability to release pain and tension without much effort.

This book specifically addresses:  

             Low back pain

            Neck and shoulder tension

            Tension in the head, eyes, ears, and jaw
