Prerequisite: VM5

VisceroEmotional Relationships (VM6)

Explore in depth the connections between our organs, our emotions and our structure.

Jean-Pierre Barral says, "You cannot treat the emotions without treating the structure, because if there are restrictions in structure, the emotions will return. And vice versa." Often times the reason that the multiple manual techniques we already know and work with do not facilitate lasting effects is because the etiology of dysfunction has an emotional component.

Research has demonstrated for years now the effect that emotions have to dysfunctions in the body. For instance, children who live in stressful home environments develop ulcers at an age as early as 6. Barral says, "The mind likes to use the organs and the plexi as an outlet." We have learned in previous levels VM1-VM4 that there is a somato-visceral component linking structure to the viscera. As the mind discharges emotions to the organs, this causes a feedback via the nervous system back to the spine. So, again what may present as a biomechanical dysfunction can also have an emotional relationship.

Course Highlights:

  • Explore the body and the organism, physical energy, psychoemotional energy and release techniques all with respect to Jean Pierre Barral's unique visceral approach.
  • Discover all three levels of Manual Thermal Evaluation, active and passive tissuloemotional liberation, and psychoemotional liberation.
  • Understand the Chicken-or-Egg Syndrome in relation to organ dysfunction and emotions.
  • Learn how to break the visceroemotional cycle through Visceral Manipulation.
  • As a workshop that would typically be offered at the post-graduate level, this course engages course participants in a dynamic exchange of information tailored to advanced skills.


"I can't put into words this day of discovery that I am experiencing, incorporating what we learned over the weekend. Thank you so much for bringing this to us. This part of the curriculum answers so many questions as to, 'Why isn't this getting better?' It should be one of the first classes offered, but at the same time, impossible to do so. One has to go on the journey before they are ready."
