Dr. Dolbin will give an integrative approach to evaluation and treatment that requires assessment of the structural relationships between the viscera, and their fascial or ligamentous attachments to the musculoskeletal system.
Visceral Manipulation assists functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic dysfunction. It evaluates and treats the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes, fascia and ligaments. It also increases proprioceptive communication within the body, thereby revitalizing a person and relieving symptoms of pain, dysfunction, and poor posture.
Strains in the connective tissue of the viscera can result from surgical scars, adhesions, illness, posture or injury. Tension patterns form through the fascial network deep within the body, creating a cascade of effects far from their sources for which the body will have to compensate. This creates fixed, abnormal points of tension that the body must move around, and this chronic irritation gives way to functional and structural problems.
This seminar encourages attendees to practice these techniques during the class to enhance confidence in the treatments and effectiveness. Attendees are asked to wear comfortable clothes and if possible bring a portable or massage table.
