“In seeking help to recover from chronic pain, I found Ortho-Bionomy®. Finding pain-relief and self-empowered healing through OB inspired me to become become a Practitioner myself. This deceptively simple work continually astounds me with its profound impacts; and its ability to help guide people to pain-relief while empowering them to continue their own healing.  This is my life work and I would love to share it with you!” -Dainella

My training began in October 2011 and I completed the 503 hour Practitioner Training program in June 2014.  To support my insatiable need to improve each session for every client, I have now entered into the Advanced Practitioner Training Program and am also pursuing Trainer Education in Authentic Relating. 

My interests also spill over into studying Equine Positional Release, which is an application of Ortho-Bionomy® principles to the structure and needs of horses, by the Australian Zarna Carter.  I was able to attend two of her courses, Horse & Rider Fusion and EPR II (2012).  The work was so inspiring that I now coordinate EPR clinics here in Gunnison at the Rodeo grounds; EPR I (2013,) Isometrics (2014) and we’re looking forward to Zarnas’ next visit.

Prior to discovering Ortho-Bionomy®, I completed a Bachelors of Science degree from the University of Oregon that focused on Environmental Science and Outdoor Education, which I applied during my time as a Wildland Firefighter with the USFS and Outdoor Instructor.  Travels abroad led to my employment with Raytheon Polar Services and Antarctic contracts, where I first entered into the construction trades and became a Journeyman Electrician.  Needless to say, my injury was well layered with years of physical labor, cold environments and a preference for outdoor sports.  This broad background allows me to help clients find greater comfort and function in their daily pursuits.
