Myofascial /Visceral Mobilization

An integral part of our treatments.

These techniques are a form of soft tissue mobilization which focuses on connective tissue surrounding muscles and internal organs.

By using hands on techniques our therapists will discover and resolve your fascial restrictions.

What is fascia and viscera? 

Fascia is a densely woven continuous network of connective tissue surrounding muscles (myo) and internal organs (viscera). Fascia is the cobweb like structure between the skin and muscle.  Fascia assists in holding our bodies together and our organs in place.  It is present from our head to our  toes.

What causes myofascial and visceral complaints?

Acute trauma such as falls, car accidents, surgery or repetitive stress injuries can cause fascia that surrounds muscle and visceral organs to become tight and restricted.  Inflammation and scarring can result in fascial tissue becoming less pliable.  This may result in pain, tension and limited range of motion. Our specially trained therapists are able to identify areas of restricted mobility which may be contributing to your pain.
By using hands on techniques our therapists will discover and resolve your fascial restrictions.  Following treatment you will notice decreased tension and improved range of motion.
