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.
Get started with Visceral Manipulation 1 (VM1) with this basic Starter Kit which includes Visceral Manipulation (VM1 text book), The Croissant in the Brain book, Pathway to Health book, and a 1-Year IAHP Medallion Membership.
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 - 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.
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.
Online Video-for your computer or digital device-Online Video-Barral-SET of 4 Anatomy Series – Visceral Manipulation - Each segment in this series will provide in depth discussion with a visceral perspective. The presentations are designed to enrich your knowledge and enhance your practice with a greater understanding of organ specific fascial and soft tissue connections and their connection to pain and dysfunction. The BI Faculty have studied for many years and are able to encapsulate many years of knowledge to bring it to you and your practice.
The content will delve into ~anatomy of a specific organ and it's relationship to its surrounding anatomy ~pertinent dissection slides of unembalmed donor ~using models of organs, the presenter will demonstrate each organ’s movement patterns ~self palpation as it relates to clinical application
