Visceral Therapy

Visceral Manipulation (VM) therapy is a gentle manual therapy that aids the body’s ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction. Visceral Manipulation is being taught across the world and helps to address the cause of chronic pain – not just treat the symptoms. The term ‘Viscera’ relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the liver, kidneys and intestines. The physical therapist focuses on evaluating the entire body then uses gentle compression, mobilization and elongation of the soft tissues in order to find the source of the problem. As the Visceral Manipulation techniques are applied they help release the source of the problem to re-establish the body’s ability to adapt and restore itself to health. The symptoms will then begin to decrease.
