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. It is the result of a rich clinical experience, and a long empirical and pragmatic journey that Jean-Pierre Barral began over four decades ago.
CHART - Fascial interconnectedness is at the heart of CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Neural Manipulation, Total Body Balancing, Fascial Balancing, and many other manual therapies. This trifold reference chart, developed with Tad Wanveer, LMBT, CST-D, shows fascia as the body’s foundational substance in a clear, detailed, and fascinating manner. It illustrates how fascial distortions alter the musculoskeletal system, organs, brain, and spinal cord, and even all the way into the smallest units of the body.
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.
CHART - This beautifully illustrated trifold reference chart is a clear and concise review of the CranioSacral Therapy techniques for the Avenue of Expression (AOE). It is also a quick reference guide for the key anatomical structures of the AOE and a must have for all CST practitioners.
