For the manual therapist, man is an indivisible and indissociable whole whose components are indispensible to homeostasis and good health. Each articulation, every organ and tissue deserves our care and attention.
Sooner or later, nearly all men have prostate problems. The urinary, genital and psycho-emotional consequences are inconducive to a good quality of life.
Thanks to these simple, effective and non-iatrogenic techniques, precise manual therapy can help to resolve the effects of prostate problems.
This book is the fruit of everyday clinical experience. Based on anatomy and physiology, Manual Therapy for the Prostate provides a simple response to a complex pathology. This book is one of the keys to bringing them some relief.
"As a physical therapist and active health care practitioner for women's and men's health, I highly recommend Jean-Pierre Barral's book Manual Therapy for the Prostate. He shares with us his knowledge of anatomy, his clinical experiences and treatment protocols that give "answers" for many of our challenging diagnosis and dysfunctions in men with urogenital problems. He relates the health of the prostate to vascular, neurological, fascial, emotional and musculoskeletal homeostasis. For the future of men's health, this is a must read book!"
BOOK - In this book, Barral discusses each organ and its complex relationship with the rest of the body, explaining how pain can originate with an emotional upset that creates distress in an organ, or how a physically damaged organ can cause emotional problems.
BOOK - This book completes Jean-Pierre Barral's widely acclaimed four-volume exploration of the osteopathic implications of the dysfunctions of the internal viscera. The focus of this volume is on the pelvis, especially of women.
BOOK - Since the time of Hippocrates, medical practitioners have noted the clinical significance of temperature changes found over different parts of the body. In Manual Thermal Evaluation Jean-Pierre Barral brings this form of diagnosis into the new millenium.
BOOK - The new evaluation and therapy concept for the peripheral nerves by Jean-Pierre Barral and Alain Croibier is introduced for the first time in this book. Disorders of the plexus and nerves which cause dysfunctions are described in a practical and detailed way from anatomic, physiological and pathological points of view.
BOOK - While Jean-Pierre Barral's previous books, Visceral Manipulation and Visceral Manipulation II, focus on the abdomen, in The Thorax the author turns his unique gaze to the thoracic cage and its contents.
