What is Ortho-Bionomy?Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle, effective bodywork therapy. It employs subtle, yet deliberate movements that re-position your body to naturally release your stress and pain patterns. Ortho-Bionomy follows the osteopathic principle: structure governs function. To move well and balance properly your nerves convey important messages to your joints and muscles. During injury, stress or illness, these messages, can be disrupted, sometimes causing pain and dysfunction. Ortho-Bionomy reminds the body of its own ability to find balance. It uses comfortable positioning techniques to support your body’s innate ability to self-correct and realign your skeletal posture.Ortho-Bionomy promotes general health and well being and can aid in your recovery from conditions such as:
- stress and fatigue
- muscle tension
- joint stiffness and pain
- posture and structural problems
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- frozen shoulder
- back & neck pain
- scoliosis & kyphosis
- headaches & migraines
- emotional trauma

Marie’s journey with bodywork began in 2008 in a ski resort in France where she started studying Ortho-Bionomy while she was working as a relaxation massage therapist. She was mainly giving post ski massages and this sparked her interest for understanding more of the human body in movement. A year later she moved to Australia, she completed a Diploma in Remedial Massage and also continued to train in Ortho-Bionomy. Since then she has been practicing both techniques in spas and clinics in Sydney and Melbourne and she is now running a successful clinic at the Yoga Loft. Marie is qualified to treat a varied range of conditions from muscle and joint pain to reducing stress and anxiety or helping with sports injury. She is devoted to enhance the well being of each client. Her approach is gentle yet effective and suited to each individual.
“Marie Gaboriau is a strong and sensitive massage therapist who takes care to treat each massage as a special moment in time. She practices listening carefully to the needs of the mind and body to find the right touch for each occasion. Melbourne’s loss is Newcastle’s gain.”
“I first came to Marie on a recommendation from a friend. With a busy executive, office bound job and lots of life pressures, I needed a place to relax and de-stress. Marie’s massages were just the right ‘tonic’. Marie has an innate ability to tune in very quickly with my state of being on each occasion and has been able to translate this effectively to her massage style. Every time I finish a session, I leave feeling profoundly relaxed, like I can walk a little taller, breathe a little easier and sense I am more connected with who I am. It’s hard to find to find a great masseur that you know understands the profession deeply, has a passion for it, is able to connect with you and gives wonderful massages. When you do, you don’t want to let them go. Thanks Marie for the last 4 years. I wish you every continued success. You deserve it.”
“Over the years I had tried visiting a few massage therapists, with disappointing results. I am very sensitive to any kind of deep pressure and prefer to avoid it, but when I asked the therapists to use only gentle pressure they seemed unable to understand what I meant. So I was delighted to experience Marie’s approach; finally I could experience the deeply relaxing and therapeutic nature of a really good massage, without suffering pain either during or afterwards. Marie listens carefully to me and customises her techniques to match my needs. She is clearly very experienced and very skilled as well as being highly intuitive. I also love her incorporation of Ortho-Bionomy techniques when appropriate to get the maximum release of tension. I always leave her sessions feeling deeply relaxed and more at home in my skin.”
