Description

4 Days Course at Mississaga Campus 3:00 PM- 7:00 PM (Seotember 7, 14, 21 & 18)

What is Visceral Therapy?
​Visceral Manipulation (VM) was developed by world-renowned French Osteopath and Physical Therapist Jean-Pierre Barral. Comparative studies found Visceral Manipulation beneficial for various disorders.

Visceral manipulation is the practice of using one's hands to move and release fascial restrictions in your abdomen and pelvis to encourage the normal movement and function of your internal organs.
This form of therapy allows for patients to feel better.
"Visceral osteopathy is away of exploring tensions ofthe body that reside within the organs and associted tissues, with the aim of improving overall movement, lessening any barriers to better function and allowing the body's own self-healing and self-regulating mechanism to function more optimally"
​- Caroline A Stone
