Qualifications: LMT, NCBTMB and FL CE provider, Advanced Practitioner, Advanced Instructor, Basic and Advanced Instructor Trainer,
Teaching Subjects: All the classes: I love teaching Phase 4, Self Care, Phase 5 and Phase 6, Posture, Isometrics, Chapman's Reflexes, Pelvic Stabilization, Cranial, Advanced Chapman's, Carpal tunnel Syndrome, and Ethics and Emotions. I am also completing my Instructor training in Bones for Life.
Philosophy: During the past thirty years I have worked with thousands of people in pain in my Ortho-Bionomy private practice, and have developed release techniques for carpal tunnel syndrome and neuritis conditions of the arm and shoulder. 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. With a respectful, playful and empowering approach, I enjoy teaching and encouraging self-discovery to enhance the quality of one's life.
Biography: My interest in Ortho-Bionomy Self Care began in response to my own injuries and near death experience following a motorcycle accident. Undergraduate studies in Pre-Med and a BA degree in psychology with a minor in education from UCLA in 1970 drew me to study modalities that not only could effectively relieve pain, but also would respect individual differences and address the mind / body connection. Currently, I am licensed as a massage therapist in Florida and am certified as a continuing education provider with the State of Florida and with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). I teach over thirty courses a year in the US and Australia, and throughout the years have taught Ortho-Bionomy courses in Japan, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, New Zealand and Jamaica. I train instructors, mentor practitioners, and write articles for newsletters in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. The July 2008 issue of Massage Magazine ran my article on Ortho-Bionomy.
Travel: Yes, probably almost anywhere. I love to travel
Network: Facebook, Linked-IN

Start Date: 9/7/2019
End Date: 9/8/2019
Location: Asheville
State/Country: NC
Class Description: This class heightens our sensitivity and awareness to energetic relationship. The techniques clarify the effects of interactions within the auric field that promote a natural return to physical, mental and emotional well-being. Students learn to notice and identify energetic shifts within themselves and others, and to model that capacity. They learn the value of "not doing" as the practitioner steps back to allow the client's self-healing capacities to engage. The concepts of alignment and attunement, holding space, interrupting patterns, and offering options will be explored as they relate to the natural reflexive responses of rebound, recoil, remembered emotional response, follow on response, and ongoing action.
