Visceral Manipulation: Viscerovascular Manipulation; Upper Body (VVMU)

3-day course with René Assink


Sunday 7. April till Tuesday 9. April 2024
9am - 5pm (3pm on the last day)


This course explores evaluation and treatment techniques for the vascular system of the body.


  • Review the anatomy and physiology of the vascular system, particularly how arteries dilate or diminish in diameter depending on the function of the body.
  • Understand how compression along vascular structures creates restriction patterns and pain throughout the body.
  • Learn to locate and release restrictions along the vascular structures using direct techniques on the arteries like compression, decompression and elongation, as well as indirect techniques using the limbs.
  • Explore manipulation of the soft tissues of the heart itself, aorta, subclavian artery, along with all the arteries connected with the visceral system.
  • Enhance your understanding of how increased blood circulation to an organ improves function of the viscera, and learn how to improve the blood circulation to organs, directly and/or indirectly.
  • Learn treatment of the vaso-pressive system and the brain.
  • Discover the research done with doppler ultrasound to determine the best mobilizations of the arteries to improve local and general blood circulation.
  • Learn practical integration of vascular treatment into the therapeutic session.

The course is taught in English.
