Visceral Manipulation

What is Visceral Manipulation (VM)?

“Viscera” relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the liver, kidneys and intestines. Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that aids your body’s ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction. Visceral Manipulation, or VM, does not focus solely on the site of pain or dysfunction, but evaluates the entire body to find the source of the problem. The VM therapist feels for altered or decreased motion within the viscera, as well as restrictive patterns throughout the body and then applies VM techniques. VM therapy re-establishes the body’s ability to adapt and restore itself to health.

Therapeutic Results

A man in his mid-thirties came to see me with low back and knee pain, overall low energy, as well as digestive problems. At the age of 13 he had an appendectomy. Scar tissue had formed that decreased mobility of his large intestine. Scar tissue also pulled down on his right kidney. Since the kidney, which has a strong effect on energy and metabolism, was not moving and working properly, he felt tired. The restriction of the kidney also caused the muscles and fascia around that kidney to be tight, which caused low back pain and misalignment of the right leg. Because of his misalignment and the compression of the nerves behind the kidney that go to the knee, he was also experiencing right knee pain. These symptoms of right knee pain, right low back pain, low energy, and digestive problems were all linked back to scar tissue from the appendectomy at age 13. By releasing the scar tissue and enabling the intestines and kidney to move properly, his symptoms abated.”- G.W., Newport Beach, CA
