Neural Manipulation: Neuro-Visceral Manipulation of the Thorax and Abdomen (NVMTA)

Prerequisite: VM2 and NM2 or NM3

Neuro-Visceral Manipulation of the Thorax and Abdomen (NVMTA)

The workshop will present specific and advanced techniques that work with the nervous system of the abdomen and thorax.

Course Highlights:

  • Discover locations in the body where the nervous system of the abdomen and thorax can be influenced directly or via trigger points.
  • Evaluate and manipulate the nervous system in relation to the skin of the abdominal region.
  • Explore the nervous system structures within the abdominal cavity, focusing on the hiatus, gallbladder, liver, pancreas, spleen, small intestine and large intestine.
  • Participate in supervised, hands-on sessions that guide you through specific techniques for locating and evaluating very precise structural points related to the abdominal organs to facilitate optimal release of restricted tissues.


"Having the opportunity to take the VMAA (new class title NVMTA) class taught by Olivier Bazin was an amazing experience! Olivier was able to take very complex material involving manipulations of the neural system, including the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems, corresponding to the abdominal viscera, and present many new techniques in a way that could be easily understood by all. I have been able to immediately integrate these valuable techniques into my current practice. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in fine tuning their skills in advanced neuro-visceral manipulation!"
