13 Jun Visceral Manipulation: A new pain management therapy offered at Sage Integrative Medicine Clinic!
Introducing Visceral Manipulation, offered by our new massage therapist, Taylor Azar, LMT. This is a technique of releasing fascial adhesions–that is, “stickiness” in the connective sheath that surrounds all our muscles and internal organs. These adhesions can arise from such things as dehydration, surgery, trauma, infections, or improper movement/posture, and can impair the natural movement of your body’s structures–leading to pain and impaired function. Because of the interconnectedness of the fascial sheath, adhesions can exert effects in distant areas of the body, affecting conditions such as GERD, sciatica, and frozen shoulder–all of which can be improved with visceral manipulation as part of a holistic treatment regimen.
