Visceral Manipulation

What is Visceral Manipulation?

Visceral Manipulation (VM) are specific, gentle techniques to release the internal organs and surrounding fascia that may be restricted in the body. Areas of restriction are taken into a position of ease (think slacking of a rubber band) to allow for gentle release and the body is followed by the practitioner in its release to healthier position and mobility.

"Visceral manipulation is myofascial release specifically around organs and the tissue that connects them."


"Visceral manipulation ensures that the organs have enough slack and ease to move within the body and function efficiently."

Visceral Manipulation has been found beneficial for various conditions, such as: 

  • Pain unresolved with traditional care (outpatient physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, etc.)

  • Orthopedic pain (shoulder, back, hip, etc.)

  • Abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, dysfunction

  • Chronic pain

  • Headaches

  • Tinnitus

  • Nausea/GERD/Acid Reflux

  • Hypermobility


  • Infertility

  • Pregnancy

  • Endometriosis

  • Chest/Abdominal injuries

  • Scar Tissue

  • Scoliosis

  • Joint Pain

  • Autonomic Dysfunction

  • Anxiety/Depression

  • PTSD

  • Much, much more!


Is Visceral Manipulation uncomfortable or painful?

Visceral Manipulation can feel intense due to its specificity but should not be painful.  My training includes extremely specific knowledge of anatomy and I have trained my  hands to differentiate between different tissues.  The work is  gentle but powerful, as the tissues are taken into ease to approximate the system and promote relaxation and release of tissues.
