Online Video-Visceral Manipulation: Advanced Clinical Applications for Common Gastrointestinal Issues - 1 - Virtual Component
The Advanced Clinical Applications (ACA) Series developed
by Dr. Ron Mariotti is made up of 5 programs, each with online virtual and in
This first virtual program (CG1) will strengthen the participant’s expertise in integrating Barral’s Visceral Manipulation techniques with common gastrointestinal issues as seen in the clinical practice.
The focus of this class is the abdominal organs
including the stomach, liver and gallbladder. The participants will gain a
deeper understanding of each organ including their associated membranes,
ligaments, innervation, vascularization, spatial and functional
interrelationships, and organ-brain connections.
Evaluation skills, treatment options and guidelines to
enhance patient education including diet/lifestyle and “self-treatment” will be
The material has been prepared in numerous self-paced
modules. Taking a deliberate path through all the material, including the
quizzes, is approximately 20 hours of programming. If you need CEUs for this virtual program, please request them in advance by contacting email@example.com or 561.622.4334 ext 2.
The online program includes the following webinars:
~ Introduction Module – Provides you with an overview video of the entire course. This will help to prepare you for the in-depth study ahead of you.
~ Webinar (one hour) – An introduction to the online course and review of stomach material. At this point you will have access to the CG1 online material in a free form manner. Feel free to learn at your own pace and explore all the modules in an order you prefer. If you are scheduled to attend a 2-day in-person seminar, it is recommended this program be reviewed approximately three months in advance of that event.
~ Webinar (one hour) – Preparation for the online course units with a focus on liver modules (approximately 60-90 minutes). At this point all modules will be sent so you will need to complete each quiz at 80% before moving on to the next module. The quizzes will not prevent you from attending the hands on session but will provide you a way of checking your learning and readiness for the hands on so you get the most out of the hands on session. These quizzes will also assist Dr. Mariotti in helping to guide you. If you are scheduled to attend a 2-day in person seminar, it is recommended this program be reviewed approximately 4-6 weeks in advance of that event.
~ Webinar (one hour) – Preparation summary providing you an introduction to the gallbladder and a focus on what you can expect during the hands on experience. If you are scheduled to attend a 2-day in person seminar, it is recommended this program be reviewed approximately one week in advance of that event.
In-Person 2-day Lab Class
program, VM3 and VM4 are prerequisites to attend a VM-ACA-CG1-L in-person 2-day Lab class.
Goals of the full 5-Part ACA Series:
⁃ Increased understanding of the anatomical and physiological basis of Barral’s VM techniques.
⁃ Detailed understanding of organ evolution, embryology, anatomy, and physiology.
⁃ Deeper understanding of organ/brain connections.
⁃ Detailed understanding of common presentations of visceral pathology seen in clinical practice.
⁃ Deeper understanding of organ connections via fascial, vascular, neural, hormonal, and chemical pathways.
⁃ Provide participants with a pathology-specific protocol based on organ-organ and organ-brain interconnections to optimize patient outcomes.
