Visceral Dynamics: Working with the Organs and their Restrictions
Our organs are truly vital to our function and structure and yet often overlooked in massage therapy. In addition to providing most of the necessary physiological functions that occur in the body to maintain homeostasis, they are closely related to posture, mobility, meridians, emotions, and states of consciousness. Learn structural and functional visceral concepts as well as specific hands on release work for the liver, stomach, and associated connective tissue. Learn to alleviate shoulder and thoracic restriction among other conditions with visceral work. These are invaluable tools for helping our clients achieve optimum levels of health, function, and freedom from pain.
