Who are We?

The Mission of the Society of Ortho-Bionomy is to support its membership in their Ortho-Bionomy Practices, to promote public education and awareness of Ortho-Bionomy, to regulate the registration of Practitioners and Instructors, and to continue the evolvement of Ortho-Bionomy in accordance with its own philosophy and principles.

To fulfill our mission we strive to:
  • Conduct all Society business with awareness of Ortho-Bionomy’s principles and philosophy, in a sustainable and inclusive fashion.
  • Maintain the integrity of Ortho-Bionomy by ensuring the competence and training of all our Ortho-Bionomy Associates, Practitioners and Instructors.

In addition to providing services to our members and bi-annual conferences, the Society oversees Ortho-Bionomy classes and the training of Practitioners and Instructors. 

The extensive professional training programs ensure that each of our Registered Practitioners and Instructors has demonstrated the highest level of Ortho-Bionomy skills, professional competence and standards of practice.  

The Society pays a part time office to manage member records, track member evolvements, and work with the SOBI Board of Directors to provide and improve member services.

The Society is almost entirely a volunteer organization, including the board of Directors, and a community of people who love and cherish Ortho-Bionomy.

The Society of Ortho-Bionomy International was founded in December 1984 and is incorporated as a non-profit organization in the state of Indiana. We are also a non-profit 501(c) 6 organization - Business League - with the IRS.

The Society is also a member of the Federation of Therapeutic Massage, Bodywork and Somatic Practices Organizations http://federationmbs.org  which is a forum for communication among non-profit professional organizations with related concerns. Participating organizations represent a broad spectrum of professions, including massage therapy, bodywork therapy, structural integration, somatic practices, movement education, and energy practices.
