Common Questions:

What is Visceral Manipulation?

Visceral Manipulation (VM) is a manual therapy technique that assesses and treats the structural relationships and motion dynamics between organs and their attachments to the musculoskeletal system and the fascial network. The body as a whole as well as each individual part requires full and free motion to function optimally. Motion in the viscera can become diminished due to poor posture, pain, adhesions from inflammation and surgery, scars, injury, among other causes. VM uses gentle forces applied in a precise way to mobilize the structures underneath the therapist’s hands in order to potentially restore structural integrity and organ function.

What is Visceral Manipulation?

Each person is uniquely different. For the best possible outcomes, solutions need to be tailored to the individual not to a population. This is where Personalized Nutrition comes in with one of its most powerful tools, Nutritional Genomics, otherwise known as Nutrigenomics. Nutrigenomics allows us to understand how our food and lifestyle affects how our genes express themselves. With the information from a genomic test obtained from a simple cheek swab, we can make better daily choices so we can optimize our health, stay healthy, and understand our unique bodies’ needs.
