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 knowledge and to deepen my skills with every class I take.
“Respect the tissue.”

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is an important part of the osteopathic medicine. “Cranio” means skull and “sacral” refers to the sacrum, our sitting bone. It is by definition a system of gentle touch designed to enhance the functioning of the membranes, tissues, fluids, and bones surrounding or associated with the brain and spinal cord. It follows the same basic principles as osteopathy and also makes the patient as a whole the center of attention.
- The body functions as a unit.
All systems of the body work together and are interrelated. If one system or a part of the body is compromised, the whole body is not able to live in its healthiest potential.
- The structure of the body governs the body’s function.
The body will not function optimally if a structure is compromised. Mechanical problems often follow physiological changes that have affected different tissues.
- The flow of the fluids in the body must be maintained and preserved.
If an artery or vein is restricted, the tissue will not function to its full capacity.
- The body has the inherent ability to heal itself.
An Osteopathic Manual Practitioner works to find the restriction, free it up with the help of the body, and allow the body to live to its full potential/optimal health.
The American Osteopath William G. Sutherland discovered in the 1920s that the liquor which protects, nourishes and embeds our brain and central nervous system has a rhythmic and fluctuating motion. The free motion of this liquor is important for our health and is only guaranteed when the meninges, the 22 bones of the skull and the sacrum move without restrictions. Birth traumas and traumatic experiences later in life, as well as accidents, stress or general tension can restrict the free flow of the cerebrospinal liquor, which over time can cause serious health issues. A precise knowledge of human anatomy is important in order to be able to find the parts of the body which are restricted and inhibit the free flow of the cerebrospinal fluid.
“If you understand the mechanism, the treatment is simple.”
W.G. Sutherland, Founder of Craniosacral Osteopathy
Homeopathy, or Homeopathic Medicine, is the practice of medicine that embraces a holistic, natural approach to the treatment of the sick. Homeopathy is holistic because it treats the person as a whole, rather than focusing on a diseased part or a labeled sickness.
The word Homeopathy, which comes from the Greek, through Latin into English, literally means “like disease”. This means that the medicine given is like the disease that the person is expressing, in his totality, not a specific disease category or medical diagnosis.
Let Likes Cure Likes
The guiding principle of Homeopathy is stated as “let likes cure likes,” similia similibus curentur. While the concept of “like curing like” dates back to the Greek Father of Medicine, Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.), it was German physician Dr. C. F. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) who first codified this principle into a system of medicine. Starting with experiments (called “provings”) on himself, Dr. Hahnemann administered medicinal substances to healthy volunteers (called “provers”). Symptoms that developed in the provers while taking a specific substance gave the homeopathic “picture” of, and indications for, that remedy. Over the years, by means of provings, toxicological data, and clinical experience, the homeopathic drug pictures of over 2000 substances have been derived.
In the practice of Homeopathic Medicine, a detailed, comprehensive interview of the patient, called the homeopathic case-taking, is undertaken to reveal the physical, psychological and emotional characteristics and complaints of that individual. The homeopathic practitioner then finds the homeopathic remedy whose materia medica (drug picture) is the most similar to that of the patient’s characteristic totality. That homeopathic prescription (the similimum) is given to the patient to stimulate his/her being to heal: likes cures likes.
“The highest ideal of cure is the speedy, gentle, and enduring restoration of health by the most trustworthy and least harmful way.”
Samuel Hahnemann, Founder of Homeopathy
The purpose of massage therapy is to undo the stress and damage that the muscles endure for whichever reasons. When muscles become stressed, they tend to block oxygen and nutrients, which leads to inflammation and toxins in the muscle tissue. Massage techniques increases blood circulation and bring more oxygen and nutrients into the muscle. Massage stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system which promotes positive body awareness and relaxation. I like to integrate massage as an additional tool to reduce pain and muscular tightness, stiffness and spasms. By improving the muscle tone and balance with specific massage I have an other tool to reduce the physical stress placed on bones and joints. Myofascial and Deep Tissue Massage can be an important part of a treatment plan in order to help increase joint mobility and to release restrictions in the fascia of the muscular system.

INTUITIVE ENERGY MEDICINE
Everything is energy and energy is information. Medical Intuition accesses the connection between mind and body and simply receives the energetic information which our body stores. The electromagnetic energetic field around a person holds our thoughts and emotions, fears and beliefs, our past and our future possibilities. The discovery of limiting patterns in our energetic aspects of life allows us to find physical and emotional freedom and shows us how to connect more easily with the world around us. Intuitive Energy Medicine ventures into the source of the illnesses and can be used as a tool for personal development and to enhance physical health. It is a profound approach to reduce stress and discomfort in our lives and to make a difference in how we perceive ourselves and the challenges in life. I am using my intuitive knowledge in order to provide meaningful insight which help with relief and healing. Each person should live their own life with their own choices.
Remote Healing Sessions
Chronic physical issues often come from non-resolved physical or emotional trauma and will not heal until the therapist and client manage to go to the source and the moment that started a certain complaint in life. This often goes back into the childhood or even further back in time. Intuitive medicine can help us to heal unhealthy belief systems, outdated agreements, vows or curses. It helps us to be in charge of our own thoughts and actions and provides us with the tools to take care of our own bodies and minds. Remote Healing sessions over the phone are via video are an underestimated healing tool. Healing on the energetic level addresses our spiritual issues and leads us towards a more fulfilled and balanced life. It provides us the possibility to life happier and healthier.
Phone/Video sessions: Without previous knowledge of any your struggles or issues I will tune into your energy field and give you information about yourself in the present moment. Information on how you deal with your current life situation and how it affects your energy field, your mind and your body will be shown in form of symbols and image. We can explore those challenges in more depth and ask for solutions to heal the patterns and belief systems, which are not in alignment with your higher self and affect your emotional and physical wellbeing. I will engage you in your own healing process and support you with energetic homework so you can learn to be in charge of your energy field and facilitate your own healing.
