The ability of your organs to contract and release and squash as needed is called visceral mobility. There can come a time when this mobility is compromised when your organs are overburdened or damaged, and what happen is that they adhere to each other and develop scar tissues that hinders their pliability. When the connective tissues around the organs become stiff, then the movement and pliability of the visceral organs also become stiff. The functions of the organa are greatly hindered because of this.
When visceral mobility is not longer normal and the organs are not able to function properly, then the rest of the body suffer with it. And this is because the organ side of the nerves carry through the length of the nerves to the muscles and the limbs. The movement of your whole body stems from the core. Pain and tightness in the visceral organs will lead to the limiting of bodily movement from parts that will expose areas that are vulnerable.
Visceral manipulation is a form of abdominal massage that uses pressing, deep strokes, and friction to strip away the adhesion. The goals of visceral manipulation is to restore visceral mobility. If you want the normal visceral mobility back, then it is important to use visceral manipulation so that the organs will get proper circulation, nutrients and suppleness to restore their normal functioning.
If you use visceral manipulation, it can help benefit the body in a lot of ways. Visceral manipulation helps reduce a lot of bodily pain. Chronic muscle pains and joint pains are greatly relieved with visceral manipulation; improvement in uterine fibroids and cysts, relief from carpal tunnel, improved digestion, improved sciatica, less trouble from old injuries, and diminished symptoms of fibromyalgia are the other benefits of using this type of manipulation. All the benefits given above are just a small fraction of the many more benefits that visceral manipulation can give.
The practitioner will do other things before the actual massaging is done. The practitioner will manually poke, press and massage you. A well-trained practitioner knows what healthy, mobile organs feel like. It is possible for a practitioner to know if there is something wrong with your organs or if they are normal and healthy. During the process, your practitioner will ask you how you feel when she is pressing your abdomen. You must tell the practitioner exactly what you feel because this will affect what she will do afterwards. in order to stretch the collagen fibers that make up your fascia, the practitioner will massage and press your abdomen. This will loosen tightly-bound fibers and break up adhesions. This releases your organs so that are able to move normally.
