If reflux is mainly due to a muscle problem, practising these techniques scrupulously and correctly can often bring benefits even without treatment at my office.

Learn about the treatment that acts directly on the causes of your disorder (and not only on the symptoms)..

I’m Imma Trabucco, an Italian physiotherapist specialized in postural re-education, in fascial and muscular manipulation and specialized in Manual Therapy-Visceral Osteopathy.

I know all the symptoms of gastric reflux very well, such as a grumpy cough, tachycardia, acidic taste in your mouth, digestive difficulties, salivation and recurring mucus, heartburn, because I have experienced them myself.

It was a painful experience, which drove me to want to know the real causes of this disease and to specialise, after my graduation, in visceral rehabilitation, thus creating a highly innovative integrated method of treatment I call the Trabucco Method which aims to solve the problem all round, in natural way with specific physical therapy techniques , a nutritional strategy which is simple and not drastic, and a spychological strategy for managing anxiety and stress.

So why does the physical therapy help when the medicine fails to help you resolve the gastric reflux?
Finaly the world of therapy has developed and we can observe as gastric reflux and hiatal hernia are often caused by structural problems in the body, hence the alteration oh the fascial and muscular system, and principal muscles that are responsible for these function are the diaphragm muscleI and secondary respiratory muscle ( those of the chest and neck, also responsible for the onset of hiatal hernia).

When for various reasons the diaphragm remains contracted, it loses its form of the arc lowers down causing a constant pressure on the stomach provoking dis-fuction of the stomach, resulting in gastric reflux.

Thanks to physiotherapy techniques learned and experimented every day, I have definitively solved my health problems, and today reflux is a thing of the past. I can eat what I want, and I no longer need to take medication.

So, given the evidence of healing obtained in the field with testimonies, I decided to help as many people as possible, considering the numerous requests that I receive every day for help with gastric reflux disease, hiatal hernias and related diseases such as reflux tachycardia, coughing and/or reflux asthma.

I have prepared this practical guide for all those who want to approach the treatment philosophy of the Trabucco method, in particular, the physiotherapy part of support at home.

To obtain more benefits from it, I have added plenty of little strategies that have been successfully tested by me and my patients.

I am an advocate of freedom, so I think that learning to manage your health problems on your own, is priceless, because it is equivalent to being free.

Can following the advice in this book be a definitive solution?

In addition to important information that allows for understanding these diseases, with this book I want to share the physiotherapy techniques of the method, with photos, which I normally recommend that my patients follow at home, in order to maintain the correction results that are obtained from the physiotherapy treatment.
Of course, such techniques cannot replace treatment at my office, but great benefits can be obtained from them.
This is because, from a therapeutic point of view, whatever the underlying cause of gastric reflux, the stiffness of the diaphragm muscle and its accessory inspiratory muscles, ALWAYS appears clearly in any state of esophagus-gastric distress.

So, doing exercises aimed at restoring and maintaining the elasticity of these muscles is ESSENTIAL to avoid and get relief from gastroesophageal reflux.
In fact, I receive many emails from people who have achieved well-being by just constantly doing the exercises listed below.
Constancy and conviction are essential for treating reflux.

You can also benefit from following some valuable tips:

  1. From Dr Gabriele Prinzi concerning the treatment of helicobacter pylori and dysbiosis
  2. From Dr Giorgio Crucitti about NERD: that is, when you hear yourself saying there is nothing wrong with you, that it’s a functional problem, but you still have disabling symptoms
  3. From Dr. Marisa Orsini concerning the mind-body correlation: how our mind can influence our body and vice versa

Things you will learn from reading this book

  • Why and how physiotherapy can treat reflux and hiatus hernia by acting on the cause of their onset
  • You will find out the cause of your ailments and how you can treat them by following the 5 physiotherapy techniques described, which my patients normally practise at home after treatment at my office, and which are so simple to learn that you can easily practise them at home alone (thanks also to the large number of photos included)
  • The people who get better are those who have learnt to be responsible for themselves and to be aware of their health


Dr. Imma Trabucco

I graduated in Physiotherapy in 2003 from La Sapienza University in Rome. Afterwards, I obtained a specialisation in postural re-education from Tor Vergata University, a specialisation in fascial manipulation – Stecco Method – (levels I and II from New Master in Rome and level III at the Fascial Manipulation Institute by Stecco in Padua), and specialisation in Manual Therapy-Visceral Osteopathy. My past painful experience suffering from gastric reflux disease has made me very sensitive to the pain of others suffering from this unpleasant disease, and led me to specialise in the branch of visceral rehabilitation. I continuously attend seminars on these subjects. Given the evidence of healing obtained in the field with testimonies, I decided to help as many people as possible, considering the numerous requests that I receive every day for help with gastric reflux disease, hiatal hernias and related diseases such as reflux tachycardia, coughing and/or reflux asthma.
