Visceral Manipulation (VM) (Click for VM Background Information)

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 ...

This course will review the anatomy and physiology of the vascular system of the upper body, particularly how arteries dilate or diminish in diameter depending on the function of the body and help you understand how compression along vascular structures creates restriction patterns and pain. You will observe demonstrations and practice how to locate and release restrictions along the vascular ...

Listening Techniques (LT) (Click for LT Background Information)

In this course, you’ll learn powerful palpation procedures referred to as “listening” techniques. These techniques help guide practitioners to the proper manipulation site, indicate which body structures are involved, and identify the most efficient approach and amount of tissue engagement. You’ll practice listening to the body systems as they respond to your manipulations and will allow you to better understand ...
