Viscera Part Two
As therapists we sometimes tend to overlook the viscera and how it might be involved in the presentations we see or how it might be affecting tone and fluid that we can palpate. This session, following on from part one is going to go some way to addressing that.
The structures inside and outside of the parietal peritoneum and deeper to the greater omentum are pretty interesting in terms of the effects of overall body work and how they may impact on the quality of tissues that we are working on.
We will look at some of the areas that we can actually feel around the stomach and talk about the incredible things that are sphincters!
The ascending, transverse and descending colon are close to hand too and we’ll take a quick tour of these too.
We will get some time hopefully to look at some of the muscular issues that are involved in the process of peristalsis and digestion and look at the effects of movement in these areas.
