Michelle Dela Rosa, PT uses visceral manipulation (VM), a type of manual therapy to effectively treat abdominal connective tissue restrictions. It uses gentle, specifically placed manual pressures to promote mobility and tone of organ tissue and surrounding structures. Often, inflammatory processes, like infections, trauma, repetitive movement, diet, environmental toxins, and emotional stress, cause tissues to lose their normal motion. Natural healing can lead to the disruption of tissues by replacing them with rigid granular tissues. VM treats these restrictions to restore normal physiologic motion, which aids in improving organ function.
“The purpose of Visceral Manipulation is to recreate, harmonize and increase proprioceptive communication in the body to enhance its internal mechanism for better health.”
- Jean-Pierre Barral, D.O, developer of VM
