Visceral Mobilization is an osteopathic technique that addresses
the organ systems of the body.
This form of therapy is ideally suited for those who have
had trauma to their body, postural imbalances or recurrent
pain. With trauma, illness or postural stresses the organs
of the body can become compressed or shift their preferred
position. This can produce stiffness, pain and can also contribute
to a ‘protected’ posture. The organs of the body
can also produce what is known as referral pain.
How does this technique work?
By reducing the spasms of arteries and viens of the organ
being treated, circulation is rebalanced. Releasing restrictions
of the connective tissue envelope around the organ, posture
can be reclaimed. This may also improve the physiological
function of the organ.
What can you expect as a client?
You will lie on the treatment table clothed and the therapist
will place their hands on the region to be treated. You may
also be placed in various positions to facilitate the release.
This therapy works well with cranial therapy, muscle energy
technique and Neural Tissue Tension.
