Ortho-Bionomy Hobart

Natural Pain Relief … Profound Results.

Welcome to Ortho-Bionomy Hobart

I have been practicing this remarkable, healing body work since 2007 and became an Advanced Practitioner in 2021.

My journey with Ortho-Bionomy began when I received my first treatment in 2005. I was struggling with pain and aggravation to a long standing lower back and sciatic nerve issue.

During the Ortho-Bionomy session I felt a wide spreading sense of deep calm, and comfortable unravelling of tension in tissues not only in the painful areas but through surrounding and distant parts of my whole body.

Up until then I had tried many treatments but this was a very different experience and had a profound effect on all levels of my whole self. The ongoing positive changes I noticed for myself sparked my curiosity to study and learn more about this refreshing approach to body work.

Ortho-Bionomy is a surprisingly gentle, wholistic therapy which honours the inherent wisdom of the body to self-correct. It works with your own capacity to change, re-align and heal.

People of all ages benefit through non-forceful, yet profoundly effective techniques to:

  • create calm and safety in the nervous system
  • relieve pain
  • release restrictions
  • reduce stress
  • enhance alignment, well-being and healing

Picture of Julie at Work

With a background in Yoga and Steiner Education, Julie found Ortho-Bionomy was a natural progression and realisation of her skills, and dedication to a healthy body, mind and soul.

Julie studied Ortho-Bionomy in Australia and New Zealand with Internationally Accredited Instructors and is a Registered Advanced Practitioner with Ortho-Bionomy Australia (OBA).

She has a strong interest in using Ortho-Bionomy to work successfully with chronic pain and trauma issues. Because Ortho-Bionomy techniques are gently working with the whole body/mind and interacting to calm the nervous system, it has much to offer where people are seeking help to feel better or resolve chronic pain and trauma.

Ortho-Bionomy Sessions


In a session, the client is fully dressed and each session is tailored to the clients needs. Ortho-Bionomy self care exercises are offered when suitable, as part of a clients session.

Self care is a natural extension of the Ortho-Bionomy session on the table, enabling each person to enhance their own healing progress.
2 to 4 sessions are generally recommended to obtain substantial results for most conditions, though the individual needs of each client will be assessed and discussed in the first session.

Since 2020 and the restrictions related to Covid-19, there has been a greater call for support without needing to meet face to face.

I now offer my healing skills and support in the following additional ways:


To discuss your health concerns, offer practical support and guided Ortho-Bionomy self care exercises.


With Ortho-Bionomy I am able to work away from the body and this includes working energetically from a distance or “remotely”. During this kind of session the client allows an hour or more to be alone and rest in a comfortable space.

We begin with a short phone conversation to discuss the client's needs and prepare the space so the client may relax and receive energetically what is required to enable re-aligment and optimum healing.

I make phone contact at a later time to follow up on the session.


Please feel free to contact Julie for further information about how an Ortho-Bionomy session might help you.
