Visceral Manipulation

Sounds Intense, doesn't it? The reality is that it is very noninvasive gentle work. Using very specific subtle techniques to release adhesions and fibrous scars out of the fascia, that surrounds every organ and cell in the body.  The fascial system encircles individual organs, groups of organs, and attaches them to the bony framework. Releasing restrictions helps organs work better, improving digestion, elimination as well as chronic body pain. Chronic right shoulder pain is often related to a congested fatty liver that has lost its proper range of motion. 

Dr. Jean Pierre Barral DO developed this work.  He answers the question "why so much focus on the outside of the body, when the contents are just, as if not, more important?"  "In every musculoskeletal issue, there is an underlying visceral component."
