By far the greatest massage modality that I’ve been exposed to is Ortho‑Bionomy®.  It’s a term that literally means ‘the correct application of natural law’.  It comes from the Osteopaths, and is based on the principle of comfort.  If you are used to the phrase ‘no pain, no gain’, you are in for a very pleasant surprise.   The body will heal itself if the intelligence of the body is honored, and Ortho‑Bionomy® does just that.  Instead of pounding the muscle into submission, the body is held in such a way that the muscle releases on its own.  It’s quite amazing to experience.  “Wow, it doesn’t hurt anymore.  What did you do?” is often expressed during my sessions.
