Our understanding is that by seeking to improve their natural range of motion may aid in more functional movement in the territory in which the organ resides and we hope resulting in a more functional movement for the body overall. This information is rarely taught in this accessible format for manual therapists! Students will know how to palpate and work the viscera with confidence in their practice at the end of this two-day workshop.
