Course description:

Visceral Manipulation: Abdomen 1 – VM1

In this 4 day workshop participants will learn an integrative approach to evaluation and treatment of the structural relationships between the viscera, and their fascial or ligamentous attachments to the musculoskeletal system.

Strains in the connective tissue of the viscera can result from surgical scars, adhesion, illness, posture and injury. These strains can create fixed, abnormal points of tension that the body must move around, and this chronic irritation gives way to functional and structural problems.

The Barral Institute has been running workshops for 26 years in over 35 countries around the world. Take this great opportunity to learn these highly effective, research endorsed techniques.

Visceral Manipulation (VM) was developed by world-renowned French Osteopath and Physical Therapist Jean-Pierre Barral, D.O.

Course Outcomes:

Upon completion of this course, participants will have learned;

  • The manual skills to locate, evaluate and normalise primary areas of dysfunction within the abdominal cavity.
  • The dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes and ligaments.
  • The relationship of organs and structural or neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction.
  • How to assess the quality of functional activity and somatic structures as they relate to an overall pattern.

Developed by world renowned Osteopath Dr. John Upledger, the Upledger Institute is recognised worldwide for its groundbreaking continuing-education programs, clinical research and therapeutic services.
