What is Visceral Manipulation?
This is a manual therapy that helps treat unhealthy restrictions and inflammation throughout your body’s internal organ system. These irregularities lead to several unwanted symptoms that may linger and worsen overtime. Visceral manipulation helps to alleviate your pain through specific hands on techniques which increase the mobility of and ease within your organs.
When your vital internal organs are interrupted by an outside force such as trauma, a food intolerance, an internalized experience, long term stress, or surgery, the tissue surrounding the affected organ can become inflamed, thick and tight. Your organs are not supposed to be locked into place through inflammation or scarring and should be able to freely adapt to your movement. Visceral Manipulation helps to relieve the inflamed area and decrease scar tissue to restore the organ to its natural state, fluid and mobile.
How is it Performed?
It is performed through gentle manual therapy over the affected areas. These tissue manipulations will help aid the body’s ability to release stubborn inflamed or scarred tissue and help to bring mobility and health back to your body. VM (Visceral manipulation) is a highly skilled hands on therapy technique, consisting of gentle, specifically placed manual forces that encourage normal mobility, tone, and inherent tissue motion (motility) of the viscera, the fascia (connective tissue), and other areas of the body where physiologic motion has been impaired. It’s purpose is to re-create, harmonize, and increase proprioceptive communication in the body to enhance its internal mechanism of better health.
What Conditions Does it Help Treat?
1: VM is a gentle manual therapy that assesses the structural relationships between the viscera (organs), and their fascial or ligamentous attachments to the various systems in the body.
2: VM assists functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive, eliminatory, neuroendocrine and lymphatic dysfunction and we can link out to https://www.barralinstitute.com/therapies/
