Course Description

This advanced level workshop will strengthen the participant’s expertise in integrating Barral’s Visceral Manipulation techniques with common gastrointestinal issues as seen in the clinical practice. This class provides a deeper understanding of organ evolution, embryology, anatomy, and physiology.

The focus of this class (CG-1) is the abdominal organs including the stomach, liver and gallbladder. The participants will gain a deeper understanding of each organ including their associated membranes, ligaments, innervation, vascularization, spatial and functional interrelationships, and organ-brain connections.

Participants will practice techniques they have previously learned in the VM curriculum focusing on the utilization of these techniques as they apply to common clinical issues.

Participants will engage in detailed layered palpation labs designed to assist the practitioner in fine tuning palpation and listening skills. These layered palpation labs have been demonstrated to increase practitioner awareness of the various listening possibilities presented by each clinical condition.

Evaluation skills, treatment options and guidelines to enhance patient education including diet/lifestyle and “self-treatment” will be presented.

The goal of this class, and more extensively, this series of 5 classes is to provide the practitioner with the following:

Increased understanding of the anatomical and physiological basis of Barral’s VM techniques.

Detailed understanding of organ evolution, embryology, anatomy, and physiology.

Deeper understanding of organ/brain connections.

Detailed understanding of common presentations of visceral pathology seen in clinical practice.

Deeper understanding of organ connections via fascial, vascular, neural, hormonal, and chemical pathways.

Provide participants with a pathology-specific protocol based on organ-organ and organ-brain interconnections to optimize patient outcomes.

Provide participants with a detailed study guide to serve as a valuable resource guide.

Course Highlights

• Learn about the historical and cultural beliefs around each organ discussed.

• Learn about the evolution of the human organ system focusing on structural and functional differences with other species.

• Review embryology, anatomy and physiology of each organ, with particular focus on neurovascular and mechanical details relevant to organ function / dysfunction.

• Study the organ-brain connections.

• Enhance your understanding of visceral-neural-vascular connections to improve your application of JP Barral’s techniques.

• Learn how to utilize listening techniques to increase treatment precision and optimized patient responses.

• Engage in proven listening drills to enhance your palpation and listening skills.

• Learn how to integrate Barral’s visceral manipulation techniques with his cutting edge approach to enhancing organ-brain integration for optimum patient outcomes.

• Review specific techniques for optimizing mechanical, neurovascular and brain integration with patients suffering with common stomach pathologies such as hiatal hernia, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and gastroparesis.

• Review specific techniques for optimizing mechanical, neurovascular and brain integration with patients suffering with common functional liver issues such as fatty liver disease, hemochromatosis, metabolic and hormone function.

• Review specific techniques for optimizing mechanical, neurovascular and brain integration with patients suffering with common structural liver issues such as fibrosis, cirrhosis and decreased liver viscoelasticity.

• Review specific techniques for optimizing mechanical, neurovascular and brain integration with patients suffering with common gallbladder issue such as cholecystitis (gallbladder inflammation) and cholelithiasis (gallstones).

• Learn about common surgical approaches for the above common conditions and the complications and expected tissue responses.

Prerequisite: LT1 and VM2.

DrRonMariottiDr. Mariotti started his manual therapy career as a massage therapist focusing mainly on Visceral Manipulation. He began studying with Jean-Pierre Barral, DO, MRO(F), PT in 1992. In 2000, he began leading study groups in Visceral Manipulation in Seattle, Washington and teaching Visceral Manipulation to naturopathic medical students. In 2009 Dr. Mariotti became a Barral certified instructor of VM1, VM2, VM3, VM4, VM5, LT1 and NM1. In 2004, Dr. Mariotti graduated from Bastyr University with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. In the US, naturopathic physicians are Licensed Primary Care Providers educated in diagnosis and evaluation of medical disorders using standard conventional diagnostic procedures and functional diagnostic tools focusing on the evaluation of the whole person. After completing an undergraduate degree and completing all pre-med requirements, a naturopathic physician must complete a four to six year post-graduate medical degree as well as undergo basic and clinical science national board licensing exams. Naturopathic physicians are trained in counseling, diet/nutrition, homeopathy, botanical medicine, physical medicine, minor surgery and the use of prescriptive drugs. Dr. Mariotti works out of his Seattle, Washington private practice offering his patients an integrative approach to managing their health utilizing Visceral Manipulation within a naturopathic medical model.Dr. Mariotti has written an article “Melatonin and the Gut” as well as publishing a book “The Naturopathic Approach to Visceral Manipulation, Volume I.” Volume II and III are expected to be published in the next couple years.
