When practiced by an experienced therapist, Visceral Manipulation (VM) can be used to locate and solve problems throughout the body. Visceral Manipulation is performed by specific placement of soft manual forces. 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. While visceral tissues are delicate and often highly reactive, gentle force precisely directed is most effective.
Benefits can include: improved organ functions, dissipating the negative effects of stress, enhancing mobility, and improved metabolism.
Please wear loose-fitting clothing – yoga pants or shorts with an elastic waistband – if your massage appointment includes Visceral Manipulation.
