In this class you will learn how Ortho-Bionomy® can facilitate the natural ability of the lymphatic system to function well. The
focus will be on understanding the nature of the lymphatic system and its relationship to the fascia and the fluids. The class will include discussion in the following areas:
This method will gently reduce general pain, refine post surgical scar tissue, and promote edema reduction. It is also an effective adjunct to Complete Decongestive Physiotherapy in the treatment of primary and secondary lymphedema. Ortho-Bionomy promotes working with ease and comfort for the client as well as the practitioner
Liz Olivas, MT, CLT, RIOB
Liz Olivas is the president and founder of The Therapeutic Alternative. Liz earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of Dance at Ohio University in 1985. A strong background in kinesiology, anatomy and physiology and movement based therapy, inspired her interest in therapeutic bodywork. Liz became licensed in the state of Florida to practice massage therapy in January 1987.
In 1994 Liz then became a Certified Lymphedema Therapist who has trained with Hildegard Wittlinger of The Dr. Vodder School in Walchsee, Austria. In early 2019 she became certified in Modern MLD State of the Art, Advanced Certification. Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) therapy is rapidly evolving, and this comprehensive/intensive course, provided by the International Lymphedema & Wound Training Institute (ILWTI), has elevated these traditional paradigms, integrating new evidence-based research and ICG fluoroscopy of live lymphatics, to create the new Lymphatic & Integumentary Rehabilitation (LIR™) approach.
Additionally, she is an Advanced Practitioner and a Registered Instructor of Ortho-Bionomy® with the Society of Ortho-Bionomy International®.
Liz brings with her an accumulation of over 32 years of private practice; during this time she recognized a need for a form of therapy that effectively releases tension, stress, acute and chronic pain with little or no damage to the surrounding tissues. She has combined and blended methods in the treatment of post mastectomy lymphedema and post mastectomy pain syndromes. She also works with clients who have post-surgical issues caused by edema, scar tissue and traumas, as well as structural misalignments.
As a pioneer in her field, she has explored outside the box of the conventional approach to treatment and is sought out to teach and share her discoveries with students as well as other therapists.
Liz Olivas maintains a private practice at The Therapeutic Alternative in Boca Raton Florida.
