The heart is a small machine that beats a thousand times a day. While the heart possesses its own command system and nervous system, its functioning can nonetheless be modified by the brain and the central nervous system.
The cardiac rhythm is under the direct influence of our emotions, anxieties and stress. Any of which can make the heart beat very quickly or in an irregular way. Whenever the oxygen rate in the blood decreases, the heartbeat’s rhythm increases. The quantity of oxygen or carbon dioxide in the blood, blood pressure, one’s level of physical activity, body heat, as well as the intensity of stress or effort are among the data that the brain transmits to the heart, altering its rhythm.
When the Heart Doesn’t work as well as it should, you may experience:
- Heartbeat disturbance – our emotions drive our heart heat
- Out of breath for no reason
- A tightness in the chest
- Uneasiness in the chest
- Pain between the shoulder blades and down the left arm
- Pain in the jaw

Our emotions impact the human body more than you think. One of the main impacts to the human body’s organs is not just the physical activity such as exercising or a eating healthy, but through our emotions. As humans, we encounter various emotions through out the day. These emotions can make a major impact and determine how our organs responds or reacts to certain situation.
Visceral Manipulation is one of the best ways of optimising our organ functions. Each organ has a specific movement pattern when it is healthy. Any injuries or emotional traumas, organs lose some important motion. Visceral Manipulation therapy will help enable organs to regain or improve mobility. This is done through gentle and precise pressure and movements.
How do our organs mobility determine how we feel.
Organs lose mobility through lifestyle, physical trauma, surgery, infections, bad diet, pregnancy, pollution and much more. The therapist must first find visceral fixations by first analysing the problem and then determine why the organs are not moving optimally.
For example, say you experience frustration dealing with a situation. By your reaction, your stomach become irritated and your brain will receive combination of psychological and physical information. This tension around your stomach can be released through Visceral Manipulation.
The time it takes to see results varies depending on the symptoms and length of time experiencing these symptoms but using within a few session, you should expect to feel some results.
