Visceral/ Organ Manipulation
"THERE IS AN UNSEEN WORLD OF INNER WORKINGS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO HOW WE EXPERIENCE OUR BODY"
“Viscera” refers to the internal organs of the body. For most of our days we are unaware of our inner workings until we experience an acute discomfort. This treatment approach recognizes that internal organs and surrounding structures are very much connected to the rest of your body mechanically
WHY CHOOSE VISCERAL MANIPULATION?
Visceral Osteopaths also consider the movements and quality of internal organs (stomach, liver, intestines, lungs, etc..) to treat back, neck, shoulders, and legs problems.
Organ restriction can happen after surgery as your wound heals it can form scar areas. Bacterial or viral infection like pneumonia/flu can damage organs.
Car crash or trauma, rib fracture can injure organs within. Diaphragm restriction can affect breathing and functioning of liver, intestines and can eventually lead to immunosuppression, constipation, gas/ bloating.
Period pain, delayed menstrual cycle, pregnancy issues, ovary cyst, uterine fibroids, PCOD.
HOW DOES VISCERAL MANIPULATION FEEL?
Visceral Manipulation (or VM) is gentle manual therapy applied to the soft tissues and organs within our abdomen, thorax and pelvis. This hands-on treatment may involve gentle compression and mobilization of the structures that house the organs
