Visceral manipulation is a unique form of very gentle manual therapy that addresses the viscera (internal organs) and works with our own body’s ability to heal itself and achieve balance. We are a web of interconnected tissues and each one of our organs relies upon movements that occurs within and around all other organs.
When there is an adhesion between two tissues or organs there is a lack of free movement, resulting in a decreased function (due to an alteration in the actual structure) of the organs themselves and restricted musculoskeletal movements.
Adhesions can develop due to many factors:
- Dehydration of tissues,
- All forms of physical and emotional stress.
- chronic musculoskeletal pain
- back, hip and knee pain
- post-surgical scar tissue
- acid reflux and heartburn
- Crohn’s Disease and IBS
- liver disorders and much more.
Our massage therapist Silvia is now trained in Visceral Manipulation 1 and is having great results treating the above issues.
