Visceral manipulation

Visceral Manipulation is used to locate and solve problems throughout the body. It encourages your own natural mechanisms to improve the functioning of your organs, dissipate the negative effects of stress, enhance mobility of the musculoskeletal system through the connective tissue attachments, and influence general metabolism.

Gentle manipulation of the visceral support system can improve organ function. More importantly, strain can be taken out of the visceral support membranes as a highly effective way of treating musculoskeletal problems. As an example, ligaments supporting the lungs connect to the middle scalene muscles in the neck and to the sides of the lowest 1-3 vertebrae in the neck. By this route, restrictions in the lung support membranes (pleura) routinely create neck strain.
