Visceral Manipulation Thoracic

The Visceral Manipulation Curriculum was developed by French Osteopath, Jean-Pierre Barral who has taught the techniques worldwide, as well as trained and certified instructors to teach for the Barral Institute.

Personally, I have attended and found the Viseral Manipulation training in Abdomen (VM1, VM2); VM3 Pelvis and VM4 Thoracic in Brisbane.  I have learned detailed surface anatomy of the abdomen that I have been wanting for so long and can be integrated for my lymphoedema practice. Visceral Manipulation is a manual therapy in which light, specifically placed pressure encourages normal mobility, tone and tissue motion of the internal organs and their connective tissue. These gentle manipulations have the potential to affect physiological function and the structural integrity of the entire body.

VM4 Course Highlights:

*Explore visceral fascia of the throat and thoracic cavity.
*Review the anatomy, biomechanics and function of the thoracic organs.
*Study the biomechanics of the cervical, thoracic, rib cage and shoulder girdle complex.
*Learn techniques to release the soft tissue components of the thoracic inlet and hyoid apparatus.
*Practice listening techniques within the thoracic activity.
*Understand practical integration of the thoracic cavity organs.
*Learn integration of the thoracic organs with the complex ligament systems of that body region.
*Discover techniques for differentiating between somatic and visceral causes for thoracic and spinal problems.
*Special Focus on Pleura, Lungs, Pericardium, Heart, Mediastinum, Thyroid, Trachea, Oesophagus, Sternum, Rib Cage and Thoracic Plexuses.

Prerequisite: VM2 (Abdomen 2) or VMIB (Visceral Manipulation IB).
