Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual technique involving specific placement of soft manual forces to encourage the normal mobility, tone and motion of the viscera (internal organs) and the connective tissue and ligaments that support each organ onto our skeleton. Specific techniques are used to evaluate how abnormal forces might be affecting your normal body functions forces or affecting your skeleton, soft tissues and organs. Techniques are then used to gently assist releasing the tension lines and improve visceral mobility. These gentle manipulations can potentially improve the functioning of individual organs, the systems the organs function within, and the structural integrity of the entire body.
Visceral Manipulation has been developed and researched by Jean Paul Barral and is taught in Australia by the Barral Institute (see link below). Studies linked to the Barral Institute have found Visceral Manipulation can benefit various disorders such as whiplash, chest and abdominal sports injuries, bloating and constipation, chronic spinal dysfunction, headaches and migraines, , peripheral joint pain, sciatica, swallowing dysfunctions, nausea and acid reflux, constipation and gastritis, chronic pelvis pain, endometriosis, bladder incontinence, prostate dysfunction, and pudendal neuralgia.
Visceral tissues are delicate and often highly reactive and therefore the techniques are very gentle but also very precise. Our trained physiotherapists have used these techniques extensively and in conjunction with other forms of manual therapy to create the best results for our clients.
