You deserve easier periods

& pregnancy, postpartum & perimenopause

  • Do you experience pain, terrible moods or other physical & emotional symptoms before or during your periods?
  • Are your periods SUPER heavy or too light, or they’re so irregular that you never know when it’s coming?
  • Are your periods worse since having your baby, or as you’ve entered perimenopause?
  • Do you often suffer pain in your hips & low back, or began suffering during your pregnancy or postpartum?
  • Tired of trying new therapies, supplements and diets looking for the thing that will finally fix your problem?
  • Feeling out of control of your body and just want to win back more good days in each month?

“Before seeing Janine I was suffering from strong period pain every month. I was delighted by the immediate results of her gentle work … I can now enjoy pain-free cycles!” – Marie

Hi, I'm Janine

I teach people how to get free of period pain, PMS, pre- and postnatal pelvic pain, hormonal headaches and more by gently restoring their body’s natural alignment. 

In 20 years of clinical practice I’ve seen how quickly much of the tension, pain and stress we experience can be reduced or eliminated when we approach our bodies with gentleness, kindness and non-judgement. The specific positional rest techniques of Ortho-Bionomy do exactly that – creating a deep sense of safety that activates your body’s natural self-corrective reflexes and harnesses its self-healing intelligence to restore balance and give lasting relief.

Clients say....

“I was pleasantly surprised to find how well this gentle yet effective approach worked.”

“I really had not anticipated such a result, to say I was delighted to be pain free is an understatement. It is very gentle, I felt completely safe at all times”

“Since I’ve been using these gentle techniques I’ve noticed something surprising – I’ve not only been kinder to myself, but also to the people around me.”


I have been using the self-care techniques every day. Not only do they help physically relieve pain, but also I’m giving attention to my body in calming, conscious and intentional ways, which really helps to relieve stress and feel nurtured.
I've used (a different therapy) for years, but after a 30min virtual session with Janine I experienced instant effective pain relief to support me at home and work. I'm thinking about pain relief in a completely different way now. Thank you Janine.
