What is Visceral Manipulation

Visceral Manipulation is a gentle and intentional form of manual therapy that addresses visceral (organ) dysfunctions in the body and problems that can be related to these structures.

Often due to physical, emotional, and mental trauma the organs can take on problems with motility and mobility. Motility focuses on the ability of the organ to move properly as it does its job. An example of motility is the gastrointestinal system's ability to move food through the tracts. Mobility focuses on the organ's ability to move within a 3-D space in the abdominal cavity. When these are these become restricted or can't properly move then it can create problems or decrease the effectiveness of the viscera.

How is Visceral Manipulation performed?

Clients can keep clothes on during Visceral Manipulation and we can simply expose the abdomen to gain access to the tissue and organs we need to assess.

This work is performed with soft, gentle and intentional touch and movements to help mobilize the tissue.
