Emotions in Your Organs: The Benefits of Visceral Manipulation

Did you know that emotions can show on more than just your face? They show in your organs too!

Negative emotions can have all sorts of effects on the body, from heartburn to feeling faint, or even more serious diseases. When your brain feels a negative emotion, it sends tension to the corresponding organ and the organ sends tension back to the brain. It can be a vicious cycle that keeps you in pain! Visceral manipulation can help break this cycle.

So, what is visceral manipulation? First, it is important to understand the term “viscera”. Viscera is simply a term referring to the internal organs of the body. Visceral manipulation is a gentle, manual therapy. This soft, hands-on therapy does not only focus on the site of injury but the whole body. The visceral manipulation therapist will start by feeling for altered or decreased motion in the viscera as well as restrictive patterns throughout the body. Once those patterns have been identified, manipulation will begin. Visceral manipulation is a very gentle therapy. It often consists of compression, mobilization, and elongation of the soft tissues. As the source of the problem is identified and treated, symptoms will start to subside.

When starting a new therapy, it is common to want to know how long it will take to see results. Most visceral manipulation patients see improvement of their symptoms within three to five sessions! But because every body is unique, the time to see results can vary.
