Visceral Manipulation

Visceral Manipulation evaluates and treats the structural relationship between the organs and the musculoskeletal system. Developed by Jean-Pierre Barral, a French Physical Therapist and Osteopath, it pays close attention to the dynamics of the different structures and their inherent motions. Injuries, posture, what food you eat, and how you move in daily life as well as at work will leave marks on your body. External scars and internal adhesions are evidence that the relationships between your systems are out of balance. This creates tension patterns, which eventually cause discomfort, pain, and even digestive issues.

"Eat healthy, sleep well, breathe deeply, move harmoniously."

- Jean-Pierre Barral
