Visceral Manipulation is a safe and effective form of manual therapy which locates and releases lines of strain and adhesions in the connective tissues surrounding the internal organs…
Visceral Manipulation (VM) was developed by French Osteopath Jean-Pierre Barral. He was named one of Time Magazine’s Top Six Innovators for Alternative Medicine to watch in the new millennium.
Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that enhances the mobility of the organs of the visceral system. These delicate techniques can alter and improve the entire body by improving the health of the organs and the systems within which they function.
When there is tension, displacement or adhesions within the system, this can cause the organs to work against each other. These disturbances can create chronic irritations and abnormal points of tension that can tend to pave the way for disease and dysfunction.
By encourageing the normal, healthy mobility of the viscera and their connective tissues, the specific manual techniques of Visceral Manipulation help the body maintain its natural vibrant health.
This delicate manual therapy is often cited as a missing link in the tretment of recurring musculoskeletal pain, postural distoritions and biomechanical dysfunction.
Conditions which have been greatly helped by Visceral Manipulation include:
-Acid Reflux and Heartburn
-Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain
-Whiplash and other physical trauma
-Irritable Bowel Syndrome
-Chronic Neck, Back, Hip and Knee problems
-Anxiety and Depression
-Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
