Healthy tissue is elastic, extensible, mobile and in clear communication with the surrounding structures and the nervous system. If tissue becomes stuck due to illness, trauma, dehydration or emotional upset, the entire body is put under strain. Over time this disrupts functional movement, inhibits blood flow and increases pain. A healthy body require movement; sliding and gliding of the nerves, tendons and muscles within the fascial structures, movement of the abdominal and pelvic organs as they fill and empty and gliding of the joints.
Visceral Manipulation uses light, specific touch to restore movement and enhance the body’s self correction abilities.
