VM1: Visceral Manipulation: Abdomen 1

Course Description: In this course, 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 manual techniques are not advised for pregnant participants.

SPLIT WEEKEND CLASS - This class is over 2 consecutive weekends (Sat & Sun April 14-15, 2018 and Sat & Sun April 21-22, 2018).


Speaker: Brandi Kirk, PT, PRPC, CVTP


Course Objectives:

Course participants upon completion will be able to:

  • Understand how VM can assist functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic dysfunction.
  • Explore the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, fascia, membranes and ligaments.
  • Learn invaluable manual “Listening Techniques” developed by Jean-Pierre Barral to locate, evaluate and normalize primary areas of dysfunction within the abdominal cavity.
  • Assess the quality of functional activity and somatic structures as they relate to an overall pattern.
