Massage Techniques we use: Visceral Manipulation Massage/Abdominal Massage

What is Visceral Manipulation/Abdominal Massage?

Visceral massage is used to locate and solve problems throughout the body. It encourages your own natural mechanisms to improve the functioning of your organs, dissipate the negative effects of stress, enhance mobility of the musculoskeletal system through the connective tissue attachments, and influence general metabolism.

What is it good for?

Studies have shown VM is beneficial for digestive disorders in adults and pediatrics such as: bloating & constipation, nausea and acid reflux, gerd.  VM can also help with post-operative scar tissue, post-traumatic stress disorder, bladder incontinence, pelvic pain etc

How it’s performed:

Visceral Massage is based on the specific placement of soft manual forces to encourage the normal mobility, tone and motion of the viscera and their connective tissues. These gentle manipulations can potentially improve the functioning of individual organs, the systems the organs function within, and the structural integrity of the entire body.  Due to the delicate and often highly reactive nature of visceral tissues, gentle force precisely directed reaps the greatest value.
