Visceral Manipulation

Woman 7 copy

Visceral manipulation is a gentle, manual technique that works closely with the body’s internal structures. “Viscera” refers to your body’s organs and internal connections. Just like other parts of the body, the organs move as you do, even with movements as little as breathing. Given the complex internal framework of the body composed of connective tissue, nerves and vessels, internal restrictions can result in significant dysfunctions that may or may not stem from the site of your pain.

Your body is designed to function. When a restriction is limiting that function, your body will compensate and surround the lesion in an attempt to maintain function. When dysfunction persists in the viscera of the body, you may experience referred pain patterns that mimic common musculoskeletal dysfunctions, altered hormones and energy levels, disruptions in major systems such as digestive abnormalities. Regardless of how the dysfunction was created, be it trauma, injury, emotional distress, surgery, etc., it can be addressed with this “organ-specific fascial mobilization.”
