Experience the benefits of Visceral Manipulation, an integrative approach that improves organ function, relieves pain, and enhances mobility.
Jacquie uses visceral manipulation to treat a variety of conditions.
Visceral Manipulation evaluates and treats the dynamics of motion within your body and suspension in relation to organs, membranes, fascia and ligaments. The cause of one’s pain may seem to be in the musculoskeletal system but may originate from various connective tissues surrounding organs, nerves, blood vessels, glands etc.
Visceral Manipulation was developed in clinical practice by world-renowned French osteopath and physical therapist Jean-Pierre Barral. It involves an assessment of the structural relationships between the viscera, and their fascial or ligamentous attachments to the musculoskeletal system. Strains in the connective tissue of the viscera can result from many things including surgical scars, adhesions, burns, inflammation, poor posture or injury.
Visceral Manipulation improves the functioning of your organs, dissipates the negative effects of stress, enhances mobility of the musculoskeletal system through the connective tissue attachments, and influences general metabolism. It can help the body to regulate hormones, improve peristalsis, enhance lymphatic drainage and restore blood flow and nerve supply to specific areas. This can revitalize the immune system, relieve pain, increase movement and improve symptoms related to digestion, continence and sleep.
Today, a wide variety of healthcare professionals, all around the world, perform Visceral Manipulation.
