Visceral Manipulation and Massage Therapist

I took a very interesting course last weekend. This course was about maintaining mobile viscera or organs in the body. The organs included in the course were the stomach, liver, gall bladder, small intestine, ascending/transverse/descending/sigmoid colon, bladder, uterus, and diaphragm. When any of these organs are not allowed to move in their own plane and are stuck, they manifest in their own fashion. An example would be if the stomach becomes stuck, this can affect the digestive system and the ability to digest food properly. Surrounding tissue, muscles, ligaments and bones are some of the structures that can cause the organ to become fixed. Positions such as sitting leaning forward for long periods of time can also cause organs to become fixed. This can occur with those who work with computers for long periods of time. This treatment can be beneficial for anyone that has had abdominal surgery in the past as often there is scar tissue after the operation that can limit proper movement of the organs. I will supplement this entry with some specific pathologies that can occur with the immobility of each organ becoming stuck.
