Visceral Manipulation


Visceral manipulation helps the body return to normal function and remove compensatory symptoms, whatever their source, for improved health and body functioning. Developed by French Osteopath and Physical Therapist Jean-Pierre Barral, VM evaluates and treats functional and structural imbalances, increases proprioceptive communication within the body, and helps re-establish the body's ability to adapt and restore itself to health.

Visceral manipulation is an appropriate therapy for many conditions, especially chronic unresolved issues that affect several body systems simultaneously. It is highly recommended after surgery to help decrease scar tissue formation and adhesions.

Visceral manipulation encourages your own healing mechanisms to improve the functioning of your organs, and assists functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive, eliminatory, neuroendocrine and lymphatic dysfunction.
