Visceral Manipulation

Visceral manipulation is a gentle manual therapy technique that consists of specifically placed manual pressures that encourages normal movement of the viscera (organs) and re-establishes communication between the organ and the body. This manual therapy technique is beneficial in a multitude of ways. It focuses on releasing restrictions surrounding the organs. When an organ is “stuck” or has poor movement, it is unable to performs its function efficiently. Therefore, restoring movement and releasing any restricted tissues surrounding the organ will allow the organ to function more efficiently and effectively. Improved organ function leads to improved health. Visceral manipulation may be that missing key in rehabilitation of a disorder.
