An Endocrine Interpretation of Chapman's Reflexes

Author/Editor: Charles Owens

1920 Frank Chapman, DO, discovered a Reflex link between Endocrine Glands, the Viscera & Lymphatics.  “An Endocrine Interpretation of Chapman’s Reflexes”, was written by Charles Owens, DO (Chapman’s brother-in law) in 1937. In this book, he proposes that the stimulation of the Chapman’s Reflexes contributes to lymphatic drainage, balances the Autonomic Nervous System, and is beneficial to the Reflex’s target Organs and Glands. He suggests certain protocols for working with these Reflexes and describes the key role the Endocrine system plays when considering a more systemic approach to their use.

The relative constancy of the anatomic topography of Chapman's reflexes makes it possible to establish the location of pathology without knowing its nature. In considering the reflex effect on lymphatics, Dr. Chapman apparently assumed the existence of a neuro-lymphatic reflex (in the sense that we speak of neuro-vascular, neuro-muscular, neuro-humeral, etc.) as a part of the body's homeostatic mechanisms.

ALP Arthur Bionomy

Author/Editor: Arthur Lincoln Pauls

Arthur Bionomy is a name coined by Arthur for his personal style of Ortho-Bionomy.  This includes being at "play" as he more often liked to call it.  

Get a behind the scenes glimpse of the man who dedicated his life to helping people understand his world.

In a Residential setting Arthur often said, the "real" class many times took place out of the classroom.  When students are relaxed and not "trying" to learn, understanding happens all by itself.

ALP Cranial Ortho-Bionomy

Cranial Techniques by Arthur Lincoln Pauls

DVDArthur's cranial Ortho-Bionomy is the culmination of a lifetime's experience of energy work, along with the integration of advanced techniques of Ortho-Bionomy.

Arthur believed the Cranium contained over 80% of the body's energy. For this reason alone, it cannot be approached and worked with by using purely physical techniques.  

The techniques shown in this DVD go beyond physical understandings we have today of the Cranium and how it functions.

An understanding of energy work and the Four Responses are a requirement to grasp the gentle and delicate nature of Arthur's amazing Cranial techniques (90 minutes).

ALP Educational DVDs ~ Series Two

Author/Editor: Arthur Lincoln Pauls

Phase 5 / Phase 6 / The 4 Responses / Philosophy

The Phase 5 techniques were filmed in Switzerland in the fall of 1989 by Arthur Lincoln Pauls' son, Harreson.  

Jeannie Yaeger, now sadly passed away, was chosen as the model for demonstrating these techniques because of her sensitivity for Phase 5.  Note that Arthur does not say much in this series since he felt "the energy spoke for itself" and Phase 5 and 6 was meant for the advanced student of Ortho-Bionomy.  

In the Phase 6 DVD, Lucia Giannetoni was the model, now an Advanced teacher of Ortho-Bionomy in Switzerland.  She has an amazing sensitivity for Auric energy and was one of Arthur's favorite students.

Series 2 DVD Content

Disc 1:  Phase 5 Techniques (1 hour, 22 minutes)

Disc 2:  The Four Responses (56 minutes)

Disc 3:  Phase 6 Techniques / Philosophy (44 minutes)

Phase 8 Series: Posture and Post Techniques

Author/Editor: Terri Lee

By Advanced Instructor Terri Lee

This presentation focuses on the spine, it’s natural curves, movement, and the dysfunctional patterns which create our postures.  This presentation incorporates Ortho-Bionomy® principles, applying specific techniques that bring intrinsic movement to the spine and rib cage. These principles teach assessment skills. Additionally, they provide tools to integrate the work done during a session. Techniques that work with spinal curvatures like scoliosis and lordosis are presented.  You will learn to evaluate and address these inefficient postural patterns with simple exercises that facilitate a person’s ability to gain and maintain new postural habits.

Everyone can use these simple, easy to learn principles and techniques to help their friends, family and loved ones. We empower ourselves by becoming more aware of the tension patterns held in our bodies. This deeper understanding allows us to feel more comfortable and with greater ease of movement in our bodies as well as our lives.

All of the persons used to demonstrate in this film were evaluated for the first time, in front of the cameras at the time of filming. This was their first experience with Terri Lee and Ortho-Binomy.
