How Is Visceral Manipulation Performed?
Visceral Manipulation is characterized by high precision and minimal force.
Visceral Manipulation is based on the specific placement of soft manual forces to
encourage the normal mobility, tone and motion of the viscera and their connective
Due to the delicate and often highly reactive nature of the visceral tissues, gentle
force precisely directed reaps the greatest results. As with other methods of manipulation
that affect the body deeply, Visceral Manipulation works only to assist the forces
already at work.
The treatment involves skin-to-skin contact; therefore the patient is often
lying and/or sitting on a treatment table with their abdomen exposed.
This therapy is performed within a relaxed, comfortable, private setting.
