Jean-Pierre Barral 3 Part DVD Series - New Manual Articular Approach; Lower 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 Hip                                                                  

This DVD focuses on the new approach to the treatment of the hip joint that Jean-Pierre Barral has  developed in cooperation with Alain Croibier, DO. The DVD covers this subject thoroughly and from all perspectives. Its four chapters give a detailed presentation with great attention for practicability.

Every technique is introduced with the help of anatomical drawings that Barral himself created especially for this purpose. They allow us to gain an exceptional insight into the anatomical relationships that are of importance during the distinct steps of each treatment.

The Knee: A "Neurological Joint"                          

In this DVD Jean-Pierre Barral demonstrates his new techniques for the treatment of the knee. The underlying concept has been developed over many  years in collaboration with Alain Croibier. Its practical application to the knee is exemplary.

Barral calls the knee a "neurological joint." He alludes here to the complex relationships that exist between the knee and the nervous system. The example of the knee demonstrates very clearly how the different building blocks of the organism are neurologically wired to the "executive floor“ -  the brain.

The application field reaches from prevention of sports injuries to the treatment of chronic and acute dysfunctions. Barral succeeds in giving a practical, anatomy-based introduction into the various facets of this particularly problematic joint.

The Lower Leg and Foot

The lower leg and foot require a very special level of precision from the therapist. In an evolutionary process over millions of years, numerous muscular elements of the foot have changed into ligaments. Through a tensegrity structure these ligaments are closely connected to the membranes and fasciae of the lower leg. Barral’s new techniques for the treatment of the lower leg and foot take into account this "architectural fine structure.” Therefore, the techniques demonstrated in this DVD are of microscopic precision.
