BOOK - Manual Therapy Approach to the Brain, Volume 1 - This book presents an innovative manual approach to working with the brain, the most complex and fascinating part of the body, and a territory that seems essentially inaccessible.

BOOK - New Approach to the Vagus Nerve and Autonomic Nervous System - This book presents the functional importance of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) in the physiological, behavioral, and psychological balance in humans. Older and dualistic concepts of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems hold that they operate in complementary and opposing ways. In this text the reader will discover a new system with three hierarchical levels arranged according to their functions for adaptation, survival, and homeostasis. Although this book was written by an osteopath, it will benefit all therapists of the body, mind, and spirit who search to deepen their comprehension of human functioning.
BOOK - Visceral Manipulation for Female Pelvic Disorders - Manual Therapists and Osteopaths are challenged in their everyday practices to assess and treat patients affected by pelvic floor disorders. Recurring referral diagnoses may be related to functional disorders (urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, infertility), hormonal physiology (puberty, menstrual cycle, pregnancy, menopause), or related to consequences associated with specific surgical and/or infectious disease processes. The intrapelvic soft tissues are continuously stimulated and mobilized due to respiratory, urinary, genital, and intestinal functions; similarly, the urogenital organs are in constant motion. This book is based on the most common pelvic disorders encountered in clinical practice, and provides practitioners with key treatments to aid with patient care and recovery.
