Visceral Manipulation

Visceral Manipulation (VM) is a gentle hands-on deep tissue therapy that works through the body's visceral system (the lungs, liver, intestines and other internal organs) to locate and alleviate these abnormal points of tension throughout the body.

Hypertonicity, displacement, and adhesions of the viscera can all cause organs to work against each other, creating chronic irritation and fixed abnormal points of tension. The visceral organs are dependent on their ability to move freely in the visceral cavity in order to function correctly and efficiently. When they are pulled out of their effective positions, they cease to function properly.

VM employs specifically placed manual forces that work to encourage the normal mobility, tone and motion of the viscera and their connective tissues. These gentle manipulations can potentially improve the functioning of individual organs, the systems the organs function within, and the structural integrity of the entire body by helping to free up other adhesed connective tissue patterns of the body.
