What is visceral osteopathy and what is good for?

Visceral osteopathy is a form of osteopathic treatment that focuses on the internal organs of the body, such as the liver, kidneys, intestines, and other organs. The aim of visceral osteopathy is to identify and treat any restrictions or imbalances in the organs, which can affect their function and lead to pain or other symptoms.
