Visceral massage, also known as abdominal massage or visceral manipulation, is a therapeutic technique that focuses on the internal organs and their surrounding tissues. It is a specialized form of massage therapy that aims to improve the function, mobility, and overall health of the organs.
The technique involves gentle, manual manipulation of the abdomen, targeting specific organs such as the liver, stomach, intestines, and kidneys. The therapist applies pressure, stretches, and soft tissue mobilization techniques to release tension, adhesions, and restrictions in the visceral tissues.
The underlying principle of visceral massage is that the organs have their own natural mobility and need to move freely within the abdominal cavity for optimal function. When organs become restricted or adhered due to factors like surgery, inflammation, trauma, or chronic stress, it can affect their function and contribute to various health issues. Visceral massage aims to restore normal organ mobility, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and enhance the body's self-healing abilities.
Visceral massage may be beneficial for a variety of conditions, including digestive disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), constipation, and acid reflux. It can also help with gynecological issues, such as menstrual pain or fertility problems, as well as musculoskeletal pain, post-surgical recovery, and postural imbalances.
