Visceral Manipulation is therapy addressing the body’s visceral system to locate and alleviate abnormal points of tension throughout the body.
Visceral manipulation was developed by world-renowned French osteopath and physical yherapist Jean-Pierre Barral. Visceral manipulation assists functional and structural imbalances throughout the body, including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic dysfunction. It evaluates and treats the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes, fascia and ligaments. Visceral manipulation increases proprioceptive communication within the body, thereby revitalizing a person and relieving symptoms of pain, dysfunction, and poor posture. Comparative studies have found Visceral Manipulation beneficial for various disorders including digestive, pediatric and emotional issues.
