VM5 – Σπλαχνική Κινητοποίηση 5



The Manual Thermal Evaluation and Introduction to VisceroEmotional - VM 5 is a unique way of evaluation based on the heat coming from the body. Barral used an instrument (thermal scanner) to link temperatures to physical and emotional dysfunctions. The result is a unique evaluating tool, with amazing possibilities. VM5 is divided into 2 parts:

1. Manual Thermal Evaluating

This is an evaluation method developed by Jean-Pierre Barral, DO, MRO(F) that utilizes sensitivity to temperature changes to identify dysfunction within the body. It is useful across a wide spectrum of health disciplines and augments other forms of evaluation. Barral developed this "topographical map" of the physical structures that we have been learning in the previous levels. He developed this "map" with the assistance of engineers and a physicist who helped him design an instrument (thermal scanner) that measures "heat" coming off the body - infrared heat that is the same temperature as dysfunctional tissues within the body. This was the measuring tool to validate Barral's hands for this "off the body" scanning - another evaluation tool for physical and emotional dysfunctions. This map shows where both physical and emotional dysfunctions are held in the body.

2. Visceral Emotional Listening

A basic tenet of Barral Visceral Manipulation is that the body is able to heal itself unless accumulated stress is too great. We accept that:

  • Musculoskeletal structure is involved in many diseases
  • Emotions contribute to physical problems / many diseases.
  • Emotions can be stored in the body.
  • Emotions are our emotional anatomy.
  • Emotions affect visceral dysfunction.
However, there are few systems to palpate, evaluate and treat emotions. Emotions should dissipate with time, not become an overwhelming amount of stored energy! Tissues become stressed if emotion stays in an organ or when the same organ is stressed over and over. The VM5 course is as much about finding emotional connections as it is about discovering that a physical problem might well be just that.

Often times the reason that the multiple manual techniques we already know and work with do not create lasting effects is because the etiology of dysfunction has an emotional component. As the mind discharges emotions to the organs, this causes a feedback via the nervous system back to the spine. So, again what may present as a biomechanical dysfunction can also have an emotional relationship.

In VM5 we review each of the body cavities and revisit some of the techniques learned in VM1-VM4, as we learn new evaluative tools for listening to the "messages of the body." The techniques learned are essential to the whole person evaluation and treatment. Each organ holds emotions; it is our "stop gap system" for the mind. Primarily the organs and the plexi hold emotions, and when discharged, the body/mind communication can be restored.

This class allows the practitioner to go deeper into the evaluation of dysfunctions of the body and the integration of body/mind in a "tissue listening" way. The tools learned in this class are as specific as those learned in the previous levels of the visceral work. This work is unique with its "nonverbal dialoguing" and mechanical ways of linking body to mind.

Course Highlights

Discover the scientific understanding of body heat, and the clinical significance of changes in surface temperature.

Learn the use of Manual Thermal Evaluation to find restrictions and organ dysfunction in the body.

Review VM1-VM4 while learning topography of the organs and their manual thermal palpation.

Explore the synchronicity between the body and brain, and how that affects the health of a person.

Discover how the brain uses the internal organs to discharge and express excess energy (often of emotional origin) and how that affects structural integrity.

Learn specificity of working with structure and the emotions.

Help the body discharge stored emotional energy with precision

Practice working with energy loss, locating structural restrictions contributing to pain, and managing a therapeutic session.

Evaluate if emotion is 0%, 1% or 100% of the problem.

Upon completing the seminars of Visceral Manipulation, you will have the ability to look at the wholeness of a person (muscles, skeleton and organs), a complete image and understanding, a new style of manual therapy.
