Jean-Pierre Barral 2 Part DVD Series - New Manual Articular Approach; Upper Extremities Series

New Manual Articular Approach (MAA) is a manual therapy
modality that applies a comprehensive approach to the treatment of joints. It
integrates all aspects of the joint including the nerve, artery, bone, capsule,
and ligaments, as well as visceral and emotional connections. MAA delves into
the joints like never before. It examines the nerves of each joint, along with
the arteries, meniscus, ligaments, capsule attachments and folds. It
incorporates soft tissue mobilization of the associated bones, while looking at
direct and indirect relationships between the bones of the body. The
relationship between the viscera and the joints is not widely understood. MAA
shows how interconnected they are and that without addressing this visceral
connection many joint issues may not fully resolve. The application of the
gentle MAA techniques improves the body’s ability to heal and restore itself to
optimal health.

The Shoulder          

This 90 minute DVD about the treatment of the shoulder
introduces a new modality of working with joints developed by Jean-Pierre
Barral, DO in cooperation with Alain Croibier, DO. More than 40 years of
clinical practice have led to this innovative approach, which includes all the
different components of a joint: muscles, ligaments, capsule & labrum, synovial
fluid inside the capsule, arteries & veins, nerves

The Elbow, Wrist and
Hand                                        











This DVD about the dysfunctional tension around the joints
is also about the pressure inside the joint capsule.  Barral is aiming for a process of restoring
the negative pressure inside the capsule, to distribute the synovial fluid
evenly and thereby “save” the cartilage. This is based on the observation that
the pressure difference between the inside of the joint capsule and its
surrounding tissues is maintained or  –
in case of dysfunction – disturbed by strain, present in all sorts of tissues.
Strain can be found not only within muscles and their fascia, but strain is also
present in membranes, ligaments, the capsule itself, and even in certain layers
of fat tissues. In this DVD Barral shows, how to make the choice for efficient
treatment for elbow and wrist problems, by distinguishing between the large
variety of anatomical units and tissues involved. (60 minutes)
