Visceral Manipulation (VM)
was developed by Jean-Pierre Barral, DO, RPT. TIME magazine named Jean-Pierre Barral "one of the Top Healing Innovators to watch in the new millenium." VM focuses on the internal organs, their fascial environment and the potential influence on the structural and physiological dysfunctions. The underlying source of dysfunction can be far from where pain is experienced. Because of this, the practitioner searches for this compensatory pattern and source.
The Barral Institute instructs qualified professionals in VM techniques. Cynde Reilly, our physical therapist, has utilized VM in the treatment of joint pain, back pain, abdominal and pelvic pain.
