Vascular Visceral Manipulation

What is vascular manipulation and what does it do?

Manual Therapy by Emmanuelle

Visceral vascular manipulation (VVM) examines mechanical relationships between components of the vascular system. It also examines the vascular system's relationship to organs with regards to enhancing their functionality while increasing visceral vascular circulation to them. VVM regards the vascular system as a whole, including the vascularization of the heart, lungs, and organs.

French osteopath Alain Croibier collaborated with Jean-Pierre Barral to develop VVM. Comparative studies found VVM beneficial for various disorders such as:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Night Apnea
  • Dysrhythmia
  • Thyroid Dysfunction
  • Cervical Trauma
  • Migraines
  • Sequel of Gastric Ulcer
  • Digestive Issues
