VISCERAL MANIPULATION: THE PELVIS (VM3)
The Barral Institute Visceral Manipulation Level 3
Visceral Manipulation (VM) was developed by world-renowned French Osteopath Jean-Pierre Barral.
In this advanced level workshop students will study those organ systems of the pelvis not previously presented, integrate the pelvic organs with the complex ligament system of the body regions, and give methods for differentiation between somatic and visceral causes for pelvic and low back problems. It includes lecture, demonstration and practice for each technique presented.

We leave it up to each prospective student to assume responsibility for advance preparation; we cannot screen students for their level of readiness. You may, however, find yourself frustrated and left behind if you do not study before hand. It is suggested that you read through the Visceral Manipulation II text book and look up the terms for the following lists of terms and structures provided. It is also recommended that you begin your study well in advance of the scheduled workshops to allow for unforeseen interruptions and a comfortable learning pace. We want this to be an interesting and intriguing educational experience for all of you.
Wearing loose, comfortable, layered clothing and indoor slippers during the course is recommended. Avoid wearing tight clothes. As several techniques require the touch of the bare skin, it is inevitable to wear such clothing which allows the skin to be accessed easily. Due to the nature of the method, nails have to be cut short.
At the end of the training students will receive a certification issued by The Barral Institute. The issue of the certification is subject to the students’ presence during the whole period of the course, as well as, to their active participation and cooperation. The issued certificate does not qualify for individual medical activity!
