Inherent Wellness

Deborah D. Ortiz


“Viscera" relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the liver, kidneys and intestines. Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that utilizes gentle compression, mobilization, and elongation of the soft tissues to enhance the mobility of organs, ligaments and their surrounding attachments. Organs lose mobility due to physical trauma, surgery, lifestyle, infection, diet, pregnancy and posture. When an organ is restricted and fixed to another structure, the body is forced to compensate. This creates abnormal points of tension and chronic irritation that can lead to structural problems throughout the body. Like Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation re-establishes the body's ability to adapt and restore itself to health. Some of the many conditions that can be helped through this work are:

  • Bloating and Constipation

  • Nausea and Acid Reflux

  • GERD

  • Endometriosis

  • Inflammation

  • Organ Toxicity

  • Back and Neck Pain

  • Scar Tissue

  • Diastasis Recti

  • Headaches/ Migraines

  • Stress and Fatigue
