About Visceral Manipulation

Visceral Manipulation (VM) is a gentle manual therapy that aids your bodies’ ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that can cause pain and dysfunction.

 

“Viscera” relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the liver, kidneys and intestines.

VM does not focus solely on the site of the pain or dysfunctions but evaluates the entire body to find the source of the problem. All daily movements and activities require your internal body to move freely and without tension, when restrictions occur internally this can impact the bodies ability to function optimally.

 

The VM therapist feels for altered or decreased motion with in the viscera as well as restrictive patterns throughout the body and then applies VM techniques. VM therapy re-establishes the body’s ability to adapt and restore itself to health.
