Manual Therapy

To address the whole person, the organ systems must be considered, including the stomach, liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, bladder, uterus, rectum, and cerebral spinal fluid system. Throughout your organ systems lies a connective tissue thread, known as fascia, that can become restricted from repetitive movements, dysfunction, and trauma (both physical and emotional). And certain organs hold specific emotions; for example, your kidneys tend to house deep fear. By restoring the natural movement to your organ systems, Inspira can activate your innate healing power.

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral therapy uses pressure to the bones of the head, spinal column, and sacrum (located in the lower back) patients are able to release tensions and reduce pain in these areas. The name stems from the cranium, the focus on the head and sacrum, the triangular bone at the bottom of your spine. 

What is Visceral Manipulation?

Visceral manipulation targets the internal body, aiding immobilized organs that may lose their ability to function due to pregnancy, surgery, injury, or even poor posture. Through the placement of soft manual forces, you can find relief from pain.

Our internal organs are not floating, they are packed within connective tissues such as the fascia and ligaments that help support internal organs. Change in the fascial system in one area can alter the alignment of the body leading to restrictions, or wear and tear in joints.
