Course Description:

In VM1, you will be introduced to the models and concepts of functional biomechanics as viewed from Jean-Pierre Barral's Visceral Manipulation approach. This method of evaluation and treatment is based on the concept that each of our internal organs rotates on a physiological axis. Focus is on the abdominal cavity and includes the organs, their membranes, ligaments, innervation and their spatial functional interrelationships. You will learn basic manipulations for correcting abnormal motions and stress patterns within this cavity.  The course includes lecture, demonstration and hands-on practical experience for each technique presented.


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.

  • Special focus on the Liver, Stomach, Gall bladder, Small and Large Intestine.



This course is intended for licensed or certified healthcare professionals, or for students nearing completion in their studies to become a healthcare professional. ie Osteopaths, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Physicians, Registered Massage Therapists.
