Rosie Greene has been a practitioner of Visceral Manipulation since 2008, with this work becoming the foundation for all of her treatments. She runs an extensive clinical practice in North Canterbury, New Zealand treating adults and children, who present with a broad spectrum of clinical presentations ranging from the elite athletes, to people with gastro-intestinal and pelvic conditions, post-surgical and post trauma conditions, and many others. Rosie’s broad post graduate training includes studies in visceral, vascular and neural manipulation and craniosacral therapy.
Visceral Manipulation (VM) is a form of gentle hands-on manual therapy that aids the body’s ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that can cause pain and dysfunction. These gentle manipulations encourage the normal mobility, tone and motion of the viscera and their connective tissues, and support the patients’ own natural mechanisms, to improve the functioning of individual organs, the systems the organs function within, and the structural integrity of the entire body. Harmony and health exist when motion is free and excursion is full. Visceral Manipulation can also help to dissipate the negative effects of stress, enhance mobility of the musculoskeletal system through the connective tissue attachments, and influence general metabolism. This highly effective therapy was developed by acclaimed French physiotherapist and osteopath, Jean-Pierre Barral.
