Ortho-Bionomy in Melbourne

If you’re in Melbourne (Australia), visit me for Ortho-Bionomy sessions when you need focused 1 to 1 care for lasting relief of tension, pain and stress.

Ortho-Bionomy is a leading somatic therapy that’s safe and suitable for all ages. It provides relief of neurological and musculoskeletal tension and pain and easing of associated emotional and mental stress.

I’m an Advanced Practitioner and Instructor of Ortho-Bionomy with over 20 years’ experience in clinical practice. 

I also specialise in helping people break free from period pain and other PMS symptoms, irregular or too heavy periods, hormonal issues including PCOS, endometriosis, headaches/migraines, and pelvic pain during and after pregnancy.

I use gentle positioning, subtle movements and posture rehabilitation techniques to activate your body’s self-healing reflexes and create change from within. Your body remembers how to return to its natural alignment, ease and comfort.

You’ll leave each session with personalised self-care techniques to use at home so you can maximise your progress between sessions and get back in charge of your own health. Most people need only 1-4 sessions to achieve lasting relief.

We aren’t a match if you want me to ‘fix you’, or ‘crack’ your body back into place, or hit repeat on the same treatment week in, week out. If you’re interested in creating lasting change from the inside-out I’m ready to go there with you.

Book a free 20 minute consultation with me to find out if this approach could help you.

Client Love:

“I’m feeling amazing. I just can’t believe the difference in only 2 sessions. Thank you so much!” – Michelle

“Before seeing Janine I was suffering from strong period pain every month. I was delighted by the immediate results of her gentle work and decided to see her regularly to reduce the imbalance responsible for my pain.  After only a few sessions I can now enjoy pain-free cycles!” – Marie

“At 35 weeks of pregnancy I came to Janine for help with excruciating sciatica & lower back pain. I couldn’t walk further than the mailbox and spent the majority of the day on hands & knees, it was pretty bad! After 4 sessions and with practice at home all symptoms cleared up entirely; my back was actually better than at the start of the pregnancy. I really had not anticipated such a result, to say I was delighted to be pain free is an understatement. The treatment is very gentle, I felt completely safe at all times, my body felt wonderfully light at the end of each session. I would not hesitate to recommend Janine to anyone experiencing similar symptoms.”  – Alicia

“I would not have recovered so well and so quickly without you. Thank you for everything!” – Leanne
