Visceral Manipulation was developed by Jean-Pierre Barral, a French Osteopath.
Visceral Manipulation works with more than just the muscles and adjoining fascia of the body. It addresses functional and dysfunctional relationships found in organs, bones, joints, ligaments, arteries, and nerves.
Our bodies rely on the healthy interrelationship between organs and other structures throughout the body. If, for example, an organ cannot move properly, it will profoundly affect all the adjoining organs and fascia, creating a cascading effect throughout the body. This adhesion is called a primary "lesion." Over time, the body will compensate in every way it can to protect the affected area. Think of these compensations as links in a chain that start with the primary lesion. At some point, however, the body can no longer compensate. When this happens, you may get back pain, neck pain, foot pain et al.
With visceral manipulation, I gently release the primary restriction, and the whole lesional chain releases! Various aches and pains in the body begin to dissipate. The body finds structural integrity once again.
