Ortho-Bionomy and me.

You can get a lot of good information about Ortho-Bionomy off the official web site: http://ortho-bionomy.org

What I’d like to offer here is my own experience and interpretation!


I am both an Advanced Practitioner as well as an Instructor of Ortho-Bionomy (O-B).  I have had a private practice in Albany, CA since 1998, in the office of                  Dr. Marcey Shapiro. Call the office for an Appointment. 510-525-2200 1Hour session - $100 

My love affair with O-B began with its simple ease - easy on the client and practitioner, easy to do.  It wasn’t just easy, it was also quick, as in quickly feeling better!

What is Ortho-Bionomy?

The correct application of the natural laws of life.

It is a system of body work that integrates body, mind and spirit. Ortho-Bionomy is a unique and effective approach to resolving pain, that works with both your body and your energy.  This non-force system of body work uses gentle positioning and movement to relieve pain and rediscover comfort.  It reminds the body of its natural ability to find balance. 

Frequently, mental and emotional tensions and problems dissipate as the structure is re-educated to align itself.

We use comfortable positions to release pain and pain patterns, reminding the body of its natural ability to self-correct.

The founder of Ortho-Bionomy was Arther Lincoln Pauls, a British-trained Osteopath.  The foundation of O-B is Osteopathy, steeped in homeopathy principles of homeopathy and the energy relationships of Martial Arts.
