Visceral manipulation is a form of hands on manipulation to the body's organs and connective tissue in the thorax, abdomen, and pelvis. It consists of gentle holding and movement of the organs with accompanied deeper abdominal massage that addresses not only the organ function itself, but the structural alignment of the body as a whole.
All body organs are surrounded by a layer of fascia that is a continuous component of connective tissue that connects to the entire body. At times we can be structurally misaligned with body asymmetries causing pain and inflammation in our joints or functional disturbances in our organ function. This therapy addresses the body as a whole and identifies the structural contribution of the body's organs to how we may walk, sit, stand and move, digest and metabolize. This therapy is indicated for a variety of conditions including:
Abnormal or painful menses
Sessions generally last 15-45 minutes.
