Online Video-Visceral Manipulation: Advanced Clinical Applications for Common Gastrointestinal Issues - 2 - 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-person components.
This virtual program (CG2) 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 duodenum, jejunoileum, colon, and rectum. The participants will gain a deeper understanding of each organ including their associated membranes, ligaments, innervation, vascularization, spatial and functional interrelationships, and a deep-dive into organ physiology and common organ pathologies seen in the manual therapy practice.
The online program includes up to 3 months access of webinars and self-paced modules.
The program will be available starting in approximately March of 2022. Students who also attend the corresponding lab component, and who previously accessed the online elements, will receive an additional month for review access just prior to the lab course.
Taking a deliberate path through all the material, including the quizzes, is approximately 20 hours of coursework.
~ Webinars (2) with Dr Mariotti
~ Self-Paced Modules

In-Person 2-day Lab Class
VM-ACA-CG2-L in-person 2-day Lab class
Prerequisite to attend in person lab class: this virtual program, as well as VM3 & VM4 (or VMII) seminar attendance.
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.
