To understand visceral manipulation think of a chiropractor who has to adjust and bring back a vertebra which is out of place. Chiropractors use spinal assessment and adjustment to reduce the subluxation and thus alleviate irritation of the nerves.
Visceral manipulation and abdominal organs mobilization have the same concept. Very complex structures of nerves, arteries, veins, lymphatic nodes, and vessels are housed in the abdomen. When practitioners manually adjust abdominal organs, they remove tension, spasms and drooping organs; allowing them to restore to their proper place.
This procedure is incredibly relaxing because all three nervous systems are influenced. The goal is balance and normalcy through enhanced circulation, elimination, and digestion. Normalization of compromised structure always improves function.
Visceral manipulation is a form of treatment based on the concept that the abdominal organs hold keys to the physical and psychological well being of the organism.
