Dee Dettman Ahern, RPT,
has been a manual physical therapist since 1978 and has studied with The Upledger Institute since 1984. A practitioner of Visceral Manipulation since 1987 and a teacher since 1994, she teaches and speaks internationally for the Barral Institute.
In this course, you will be introduced to the models and concepts of functional biomechanics as viewed from Jean-Pierre Barral's Visceral Manipulation approach. This method of evaluation and treatment is based on the concept that each of our internal organs rotates on a physiological axis. Focus is on the abdominal cavity and includes the organs, their membranes, ligaments, innervation, and their spatial functional interrelationships. You will be taught basic manipulations for correcting abnormal motions and stress patterns within this cavity.
