Visceral Manipulation (VM) was developed by world-renowned French Osteopath and Physiotherapist Jean-Pierre Barral. VM is an integrative approach to evaluation and treatment of a patient requires assessment of the structural relationships between the viscera, and their fascial or ligamentous attachments to the musculoskeletal system. Strains in the connective tissue of the viscera can result from surgical scars, adhesions, illness, posture or injury. Tension patterns form through the fascial network deep within the body, creating a cascade of effects far from their sources for which the body will have to compensate. This creates fixed, abnormal points of tension that the body must move around, and this chronic irritation gives way to functional and structural problems.
Clinical Manual Therapy

The Clinical Manual Therapy program series which consists of 5 modules, covering the Lumbopelvic complex, Cranium-Cervical complex, Thoracic-rib complex, lower quadrant and upper quadrant.
The Schroth best practice program®
The Schroth best practice program®is the recent development of the original program provided by the grandson of Katharina Schroth, Dr. Weiss. The Schroth best practice Academy is the only branch of scoliosis management education that continues to develop with updated research science and the whole board of the Schroth Scoliologic™ Best Practice Academy is dedicated to provide the highest standard of scoliosis specific exercises for professional trainees.
Posture and Lower Limb Biomechanics
Posture and lower limb biomechanics is focused towards the professional interested in expanding his or her knowledge of lower limb biomechanics. Patients can be evaluated from a deeper perspective and programs designed with a higher level of functional individuality helping achieve goals in a safe effective manner.
Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound
After completion of this course, you are capable of using Musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound in clinical practice in a qualitative and critical way. You will learn how to scan anatomical structures of the upper- and lower extremity. The core of this hands-on skills course is based on an intensive review of anatomy of specific regions, pathophysiology of common conditions within these regions and evidence-based reviews of the use of MSK ultrasound in the assessment of the locomotoric system.
