Janine McCarthy

At Mana on Mondays and 

alternate Saturdays 

Janine is a qualified and registered Advanced Practitioner and Instructor of Ortho-Bionomy. With 20 years in clinical practice, she has helped many people leave pain behind using gentle positioning and subtle movements to activate the body's self-healing reflexes. With her support your body remembers how to return to its natural alignment, rediscovering lasting ease and comfort.

Janine specialises in

  • Recovery from period pain, PMS, irregular or too heavy periods and other menstrual symptoms

  • Hormonal issues including PCOS, endometriosis and headaches or migraines

  • Pelvic pain during and after pregnancy

  • Guiding your body back home to itself after the birth of your baby

  • Relieving babies' feeding issues, colic and digestion

  • Easing babies' sleeping problems - settling and staying asleep

  • Promoting babies' natural crawling and movement reflexes


In particular, many babies (and mothers!) who experience birth interventions need help to reestablish their natural alignment and movement reflexes.

Janine also supports recovery from acute or chronic tension, pain and stress associated with injuries, surgery, poor posture habits and the disharmony and pressure of modern life.

Janine tailors each session to your individual needs and provides self-care techniques to use at home between sessions to relieve pain and maximise your progress. Most people experience relief from the first session, with more lasting benefits achieved over 3-4 sessions. By then, most people are seeing big results, with less pain (or none!), a better understanding of how to support their body's own healing processes and a tool-kit of techniques to rely on if pain and tension return. Some choose to continue with regular sessions after this, recognising the benefit of taking time out of their busy lives to 'reset' their nervous system and whole body, but there is no pressure to commit to an ongoing treatment plan - Janine’s aim is for you to be empowered to know how to relieve regular tension and pain for yourself and to visit her when you need extra support.
