• Visceral Osteopathy

    Visceral Osteopathy is the treatment of internal organs ( digestive tract, respiratory and reproductive systems) and their ligamentous and facial attachments. Treatment uses the osteopathic philosophy to normalize circulation and blood supply to the organs.

    ‘By restoring a normal functional relationship between the organs & their neighboring structures, the osteopath can guide the body from dysfunction towards better health’.

    Visceral osteopathic techniques can be applied to the diaphragm, liver, lungs, kidneys, stomach, intestines, bladder and gynaecological organs.
