Learn More about Visceral Manipulation in Cowichan Valley

What is Visceral Manipulation?

Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that assesses the structural relationships between the viscera (organs), and their fascial or ligamentous attachments to the various systems in the body. The modality assists functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive, eliminatory, neuroendocrine, and lymphatic dysfunction.

Visceral manipulation is often used to address pain or tightness that persist even after massage, stretching, and other traditional soft tissue interventions.

Benefits of Visceral Manipulation

Some potential benefits of visceral manipulation include:

Enhanced Organ Function

Visceral manipulation can help restore optimal movement and function of internal organs, potentially improving overall performance and health.

Pain Relief

By addressing restrictions and tensions within the visceral tissues, visceral manipulation aims to alleviate discomfort and pain associated with organ dysfunction or adhesions.

Improved Circulation

Enhanced organ mobility can facilitate better blood flow, lymphatic drainage, and nerve function for overall circulation and systemic health.

Digestive Health

By relieving tension in the abdominal area, visceral manipulation aims to optimize digestion and reduce discomfort.

Support for Recovery

Visceral manipulation can be considered for post-operative recovery to help maintain or restore proper organ function and mobility.

Preventive Care

Regular visceral manipulation sessions also aim to prevent the onset of certain health issues by promoting optimal organ function and overall body health.

Tim was very knowledgeable and took the time to really get to know what was going on with my injuries. Tim knew what was up with my shoulder and worked very hard to produce the results I was hoping for when I made my massage therapy appointment. I will definitely be coming back!
