Visceral Manipulation 1

March 5-8, Athens 2020

This course is certified by the Upledger Institute International.

In VM1 you will study the models and theories of functional biomechanics as viewed from Barral’s innovative approach.

This method of evaluation is based on the theory that each of our organs rotate around an axis. We focus on the  abdomen that includes organs, their membranes, their suspension, their nerves and functional interactions with their surroundings. Participants will learn the handles in order to fix abnormal movements and patterns of pressure within the abdomen. You will practice such techniques, as they are demonstrated during the lectures.. 


Course Highlights:


    • Learn manual skills to locate, evaluate and normalize primary areas of dysfunction within the abdominal cavity.
    • Explore the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes and ligaments.
    • Examine the relationship of organs and structural or neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction.
    • Assess the quality of functional activity and somatic structures as they relate to an overall pattern.

Jean-Pierre Barral’s Visceral Manipulation is not just another manual therapy that we add to our work, but rather it is a “style” of communicating with the body. We are doing all of these techniques, not to FIX something in the body but rather to ‘wake up a little something’ as Jean-Pierre Barral says over and over again.

Barral said, “What we are wanting to do is to give the body a clear message.” “To be specific in a short time.” He says these things over and over. These are his messages of proprioceptive communication – his unique style and approach to working with patients.

Requirements:: The course is directed to trained or certified health professionals, or students who are completing studies to become health professionals, with palpation skills, experience and knowledge in anatomy. Upon registering, you will receive a document with anatomical terms and structures, to be reviewed before the course starts. We are hoping that it will be of assistance in getting the most out of your participation.
