Visceral Manipulation


‘Visceral’ relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the liver, kidneys, and intestines. Visceral Manipulation or VM is a gentle manual Therapy that aids your body’s ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunctions. A central guideline for visceral manipulation is to evaluate the person to find the structure that is causing the greatest problem for the body at that time. It may be different with each session, as the therapist focuses on what the patient's body most needs at that particular session.

VM does not focus solely on the side of pain or dysfunction, but evaluates the entire body to find the source of the problem which can be far from the painful spot. The VM therapist feels for the altered or decreased motion within the visceral and the relationship with the adjacent organs, as well as restrictive patterns throughout the body and then applies VM specific technique to re- establishes the body's ability to adapt and restore itself to health. Those effects can be global.

內臟筋膜鬆動術(VM)不会只專注在病痛的部位而是找出造成病痛的始点,这地方也许远离患者所指出的痛点。VM 治疗师徒手诊断找出已失去原有活动度的脏器及其与週边器官的关系近而形成全身活动的受限,然后会利用內臟筋膜鬆動術针对不同的脏器來做治疗以重新调整身体的平衡及自己修復的能力。这个影响可以是很全面的。

How many sessions does it take?

As each person’s situation is different, the number of visits will vary. At the initial consultation, the therapist should be able to give an idea of how often and for how long they will need to see the patient, and this will depend on the individual's condition and goals for treatment. In general, most people will notice change in 3-5 sessions, although for some very long-term or severe problems, it may be longer. Some problems will change rapidly and others more gradually, depending on the condition, how long it has continued, and how the body responds to treatment. In addition, the time between each session will vary depending on the condition, though the average is typically around one visit every 2-3 weeks, as this allows the tissues time to adjust between appointments. The sessions may also vary in length according to the therapist's style and the patient's needs. Sessions could be as short as 10 min (perhaps with a baby), or to up to 1 h or more in some cases. You and your therapist will develop a plan based on your needs and how your body responds to a treatment.

治疗的次数会因每一个人的情况不同而异。在第一次診断的时候,治疗師应该可以初步决定需要多久或多少次治疗,这些都会依据各人的情况及治疗目标而做出决定。一般上來说,多数人在3~5次的治疗过程中都会出现变化,一些問题比较复杂及嚴重的也许需要更多的时间。一些身体的问题可以很快的改变,一些則缓慢的,視个别情况及它发生的时间长短,还有根据各人对治疗的反应而定。再说,治疗时间的間隔也会因个别症状的不同而異,基本上內臟筋膜鬆動術的治疗是相隔2~3星期,这是为了给予细胞组织充分的时间和调整。个别的治疗时间长短也会因病人的需求和治疗師的风格而有所变化。也许是10分钟(嬰兒),有些則长達1小时。 你的治疗師会和你一起发展出适合你需求的疗程。
