Visceral Manipulation TherapyOriginal form of visceral manipulation therapy takes its roots in ancient China and Tibet, where it had been used for centuries to restore balance in organs and tissues after injuries and traumas. Modern day research and scientific justification for visceral manipulation therapy was carried out by a French doctor and osteopath Jean-Pierre Barral, who currently trains and provides guidance to a number of naturopaths, massage and physical therapists.

Visceral manipulation is a form of holistic manual therapy that helps release tension and provides balance and integrity to organs and tissues that are suppressed due to an illness or as a result of a trauma or injury. Dr. Barral believes that our organs are in a perpetual state of movement and if this movement is inhibited due to a trauma or scar tissue build up, it will destroy the overall balance in our bodies producing pain, inflammation and infection.
