Ortho-Bionomy® Releases for the Upper Extremities (Phase 4 training)

July 8-9th, 9am-6pm, 16 CE's

with Melissa Malm, BCTMB

Most people have pain and discomfort in their upper extremities from their work. This class will give you the techniques and tools that can help release those pain patterns while keeping your own hands and wrists comfortable. Ortho-Bionomy uses osteopathic-based, painless, and gentle body positions. This method is specific and structure oriented. The techniques of this class can alleviate tension patterns of the shoulders, elbows, scapula, clavicles, wrists, and hands within 10-30 seconds.

This class fulfills a requirement for the Society of Ortho-Bionomy International’s Associate and Practitioner training programs. It is NCBTMB approved.

About Me:

In 1997, I got the inspiration to go to massage school and have loved bodywork ever since. There is always more to learn and explore about the human body’s function and capacity. I find deep fulfillment in nurturing and supporting people, especially people experiencing pain.

In 2007, shortly after the birth of my child, I discovered the gentle but powerful techniques of Ortho-Bionomy. It mirrored my commitment to kindness and gentle intervention in parenting. I celebrated finding this path full of ease that flows with natural patterns rather than direct manipulation struggling against what is present.
