Visceral manipulation is a very gentle and specialized form of manual therapy that addresses the mobility and motility of your organ systems and thereby impacting every cell, muscle and bone in your body.
Do you have chronic inflammation, arthritis, or food allergies?
70% of the immune system lives in your intestinal tract. If your intestinal tract is not moving properly than it will not be functioning optimally and thereby all that is related to it like the immune system and nutrition absorption will be compromised. Simply getting this mobile again can impact a whole host of things throughout the body.
Every organ is suspended in the body with ligaments and connective tissue. It also has a space it is meant to move in. If that space becomes restricted or any part of the connective tissue becomes compromised that organ will not be able to move like it is supposed to.
Why does this matter? If you can imagine taking your right hand and gripping the lower right portion of your clothing around the belt line; you will notice there are lines of tension running up to the left corner toward your shoulder. This is what happens on the inside of you.
A practitioner trained in visceral manipulation can tell the overall health of an organ or how hard it is working by the nature of the cellular flow with in it, it’s motility.
If the motility of an organ is not optimal than the organ itself will not be able to function at optimal level and do the work it is built to do for your body.
Visceral manipulation is critical to the work we do because it gets to the roots of issues. As a physical therapist of 12 years it has been so painful to tell clients they just have to ‘live with’ the 20% pain we were not able to address. After learning about this technique a few years into my practice, I have no longer had to tell clients they have to ‘live’ with pain.
