"The purpose of Visceral Manipulation is to recreate, harmonize and increase proprioceptive communication in the body to enhance its internal mechanism for better health."   Jean-Pierre Barral, D.O.

Visceral Manipulation is a gentle hands on therapy that assists your body in releasing restrictions and unhealthy compensation patterns that cause pain and dysfunction.  The body is evaluated as a whole to determine where to begin the treatment  

Current pain may be the result of an injury or illness that happened months or years ago.  The area of discomfort may not be the area where the body needs the most assistance.  A restriction in the abdomen can be the cause of knee pain.

A healthy organ has a natural motion.  For example, the breath moves the abdominal organs 24,000 times each day.  If the diaphragm is restricted, abdominal movement is altered affecting the vitality and function of the organs.  An unhealthy organ can irritate nerves causing pain elsewhere.

  • Organ health

  • Spinal dysfunction
  • Acid reflux
  • GERD
  • Constipation
  • Inconitnence
  • Post operative pain and restrictions
