OBWD involves manipulation of the joints, tendons and soft tissues in order to bring about a structural realignment of the body and its internal organs and to restore qi (ki, chi, prana) energy flow. It’s principal is to restore the proper skeletal frame by manipulating soft tissue structures. This manipulation releases energetic blockages and tensions in the body, bringing a deep relaxation, and allowing the body to re-adjust itself.
OBWD is different from Chiropractic as it never involves direct hands-on manipulation of the skeleton. For soft tissue relaxation OBWD uses methods different from massage, taking into account the entire muscle structure and origin/insertion of the muscle and pressing muscle fibers vertically.
OBWD focuses on the head and neck, hara (incl. spine/pelvis) and the feet to bring about symmetry. All treatments re-align and re-balance the person from head to toe. This results in a restoration of symmetry, and a deep reduction in stress and strains.
Jo has been training with Paul & Wendy Jefferies since January 2014 and the training is ongoing to get to the next levels. Paul has developed 'OBWD' over thirty years and reached the title of Great Master in martial arts.
