What happens in an Ortho-Bionomy session?
Ortho-Bionomy stimulates your body’s own self-corrective reflexes to encourage release of pain and tension in muscles and joints. Janine uses gentle movements, positioning and brief compression or traction to remind the body of its natural alignment and its options for improved functionality. Along with an increased sense of ease and comfort, clients report that this process often brings relaxation, a sense of wellbeing and improved range of motion.
Sessions are typically one hour long and are usually conducted on a massage table (depending on client comfort), with the client fully-clothed. Remember to wear comfortable, loose or stretchy clothing for your session; leggings or track pants are preferable to shorts, jeans or skirts.
Is it cost-effective?
Ortho-Bionomy sessions provide a cost-effective approach to your healthcare. Unlike some approaches that allow only 10-20 minutes of time with your health practitioner, these sessions are 1 hour of focused, one-to-one interaction, so there is plenty of time for you to discuss issues and ask questions. Janine usually provides pain relief techniques, exercises and/or postural suggestions for you to use between sessions so you can increase your progress at home. Sessions can be scheduled weekly, fortnightly or more or less frequently to suit your needs.
The session fee is $100 ($90 for concession card holders). Babies’ and children’s (under 13yrs) sessions are 30 minutes, $50.
Janine accepts payment by cash, credit card or bank transfer.
Need to change your appointment?
If you can’t make your appointment, please let Janine know as soon as possible so that the time can be allocated to someone else. No charge is incurred if you change more than 24 hours before your scheduled time. The full fee is charged if changes are made with less than 24 hours notice (except in emergency situations).
