Visceral Manipulation

Visceral Manipulation

Visceral manipulation is the practice of an experienced therapist using his or her hands to move and release fascial restrictions in your abdomen and pelvis to encourage the normal movement and function of your internal organs. Most people are familiar with the idea of joint and muscle restrictions causing tightness, pain and limited movement in their bodies, but don’t consider the role of their organs.

Basic Concept of Visceral Manipulation (VM)

Visceral Manipulation is a gentle , non-agressive form of Manual Therapy that specifically target the internal organs, how they articulate their support structure and their physiological functions as well as dysfunctions.VM is a approach that combines both mechanistic and energetic theory.
