Visceral manipulation has to do with the viscera that surrounds the organs inside the body. Visceral Manipulation is a gentle massage that facilitates the body to release restrictions that cause painful compensation and dysfunction. The whole body is looked at as a source not just the painful area.
Organs have movement and motion; when there are restrictions present, the restrictions will limit the movement and the motion of the organ. With lack of movement and motion and restrictions present, this can entrap intercepting nerves, arteries and veins. The end result is pain felt in areas of the body that you feel are muscular but are really visceral restrictions.
Emotions are stored in the organs and have a serious impact on the body. The way you feel can have an impact on your organs and cause spasms, heartburn, vomiting, feeling faint, ulcers and other serious disease. Then there is a vicious cycle of the brain receiving these emotions from our bodies and in return the brain sends these emotions back to the organs, which then send back to the brain. Visceral Manipulation helps facilitates the body to naturally stop sending these messages and helps restores the organ and emotional balance.
