COURSE INFORMATION FOR VISCERAL MANIPULATION FOR MASSAGE THERAPISTS
This seminar focuses on the treatment of the visceral cavity, emphasizing palpation skills, and treatment of various ailments due to a congested abdominal state.
This course is based on the principles and concepts of Osteopathy and Traditional Chinese Medicine, and adapted to work in a massage practice.
The course is informative and should eliminate any intimidation a therapist might have regarding treatment of the visceral cavity.
The movement of an organ can be restricted by surgical scars, adhesions, infection, illness, poor posture or traumatic injury. A restriction prevents the “gliding and sliding” action of the organ over other structures within the body, creating an area of fixation.
Our body learns to accommodate by moving around this area of tension, and over time this repeated movement leads to chronic irritation and inflammation causing musculoskeletal, neural and visceral dysfunction.
Students who complete this course will be able to:
• To safely be able to locate and palpate and treat the contents of the abdominal cavity and treat in the gentlest manner, to affect the body’s dysfunctions or imbalances.
• Course notes will be provided.
• Attendees may want to have anatomy references available.
• Attendees may wish to bring tools they use in practice (ex. IASTM tools, foam rollers).
• Massage tables may be required, dependant on location of course.
