Especially patients with chronic symptoms may benefit from the approach of not just focusing on the area of discomfort in order to encourage pain relief. For example, upper lumbar pain or sciatica may be related to the intestines or limited shoulder or neck mobility may have a connection to the liver or gallbladder.  With skilled palpation and gentle visceral techniques the fascial structures of restricted organs can be released and their function improved.
