Questions and Answers
Ortho-Bionomy Practitioners are frequently asked certain questions, so that we’ve come to think that the answers to these questions might be of general interest. Maybe you have some questions yourself, which we might be able to answer in the following Question and Answer list.
Generally, they won’t. However, please check with your health insurance provider.
Each treatment session can last from 15 to 90 minutes, depending on the agreement between client and Practitioner.
The cost of a treatment session depends on the duration and should be agreed with your Practitioner in advance.
No. Ortho-Bionomy is a manual method of bodywork which does not use appliances.
This depends on the client’s current state of health. Generally, treatment in shorter intervals (every 2–3 days) is recommended for acute processes. As the client’s condition improves, sessions can continue on a weekly basis, and later in even larger intervals.
The total number of sessions depends on the Ortho-Bionomy Practitioner’s assessment of the individual client’s requirements. It makes sense to talk about the changes in the client’s physical and mental condition after 3–6 treatment sessions.
The initial assessment of the client’s state of health is often easier if the client removes some parts of his or her clothing. However, the Ortho-Bionomy treatment itself does not require the client to undress.
Yes. Many people treat themselves to one treatment per month, knowing that each Ortho-Bionomy session can improve self-perception and increase one’s general well-being (like a short holiday).
Yes. Ortho-Bionomy can support the body’s ability to reorganize itself.
In cases of certain mental disorders, the treatment needs to be accompanied and supervised by a certified psychotherapist.
