Our Treatment Approach

Our treatment approach is a hands-on manual therapy that is customized to the needs of each client. The private sessions focus on manual therapy to deliver a holistic treatment approach. 

Sessions may include soft tissue mobilization (similar to massage), myofascial release techniques, joint mobilization, and neuromuscular re-training (the connection between your muscle and brain for efficient coordinated movement), as well as instruction on exercises for mobility, function, and performance enhancement.


We often use treatment techniques called visceral, neural, and vascular manipulation. To learn more about this type of treatment, please read the description below and go to the Barral link in the Client Resource section.


Our treatment sessions focus on treating your system as a whole. They are geared to make you feel, move, and function better for life, work, and play and to prevent further injury.

IMPT Difference

Visceral, Neural, and Vascular Manipulation


  • Visceral, neural, and vascular manipulation are osteopathic treatment techniques that were developed by Dr. Jean Pierre Barral, DO, in France. In collaboration with the Upledger Institute, Dr. Barral introduced the techniques in the United States over 30 years ago. 


  • They are a form of gentle manipulation of the fascia surrounding the nervous system, vascular, and visceral structures (internal organs), which can become "stuck" together. This may be due to surgery, illness, inflammation, injury, food allergies and intolerances, stress, or daily "wear and tear".


  • The "stuck" effect may cause adhesions, scar tissue, or connective tissue to no longer move freely, thereby limiting motion and creating pain (like a really tight shirt makes it hard to raise your arms up or really tight jeans make it hard to squat).


WITH THESE TECHNIQUES, MOST PEOPLE FEEL IMPROVEMENT IN THREE TO SIX SESSIONS.
