Visceral Osteopathy/ Visceral Manipulation

Visceral Osteopathy is a gentle manual therapy that aids your body's ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction."Visceral" relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the liver, the kidneys and the intestines etc. Restrictions in these visceral organs can have a potential influence on structural and physiological dysfunctions. The trained therapist feels for decreased or altered motions within the viscera as well as restricted patterns throughout the body and then applies techniques that help those areas to regain their vitality and free range of motion.

Please meet Jean Pierre Barral - an amazing French Osteopath and innovative healthcare professional -  he developed "Visceral Manipulation" a gentle and precise form of manual therapy which focuses on the internal organs and their fascial environment. Visceral Manipulation recreates, harmonizes and increases proprioceptive communication. I am happy to be a student of the Barral Institute and to be able to benefit from Jean Pierre's knowlege and to deepen my skills with every class I take.

"Respect the Tissue."

"The patient forgets, but the tissue remembers what happend in his life!"
