Visceral (organ) Manipulation
Fascia (connective tissue) is a continuous web that spreads throughout the entire body, much like a spiders web. It's widespread effect goes to everything from our bones, and muscles to our internal organs - it literally connects our entire body.
When we sustain injuries, have musculo-skeletal pains, surgeries, scars, and postural imbalances, the altered 'pull' on this continual web, can effect the normal physiological movement of our internal organs. This has the ability for the organs function to become impaired, which can lead to referred pain patterns, through their various neurological connections.
Benefits of visceral manipulation include:
To help restore the organs normal balance, gentle contact is made, over the clothes, at the organs region, feeling for any restriction and releasing it. To help maintain this balance, C.H.E.K training, cranio-sacral therapy, and clinical neuro-muscular therapy are also used.
