The Visceral system relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the small and large intestines, stomach, gall bladder, liver, kidneys and everything within the Peritoneum cavity. Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy technique that assists your body to release restrictions and connective tissue compensations that have occurred due to injury (surgical, whiplash related injuries, medications) or illness. Many of these restrictions can show up as pain within the Musculoskeletal system and cause pain and dysfunction in areas away from the pathology. It works by a trained therapist to feel for altered or decreased motion within the viscera, and restrictive patterns throughout the body. Then gentle mobility techniques are applied to re-establish the body's ability to restore itself to healthy tissue.
