Physiological & Clinical Applications of Visceral Manipulation; Volume 2: Abdomen; Duodenum, Small Intestine, Colon, Sphincters, and Additional Supportive Techniques

This exciting new book is now available. 

In the Physiological and Clinical Applications of Visceral Manipulation series of books,  Dr. Ron Mariotti helps the manual therapist move from a purely mechanical approach with patients to the role of “artist” by developing the subtle ability to sense tension pat-terns, as well as the moment of tissue release. The foundation of this series of books is the truly unique and effective work of French Osteopath Jean-Pierre Barral referred to as Visceral Manipulation.

In Volume 2 of the Physiological and Clinical Application series, Dr. Mariotti continues his detailed exploration into the clinically relevant world of anatomy and physiology, with a focus on the duodenum, jejunoileum, and colon. Not only does he take you methodically through the study of anatomy, but also step-by-step through the assessment and treatment techniques of Barral’s Visceral Manipulation.

Pediatric Manual Therapy: Visceral and Neuromeningeal Manipulation Volume 1

This exciting new book is now available. 

In this two-part series, Pediatric Manual Therapy: Visceral and Neuromeningeal Manipulation by Jean Anne Zollars, discover how these profound manual therapies, developed by French osteopath Jean-Pierre Barral are adapted for newborns, babies, and young children.

These books:

•    Help the manual therapist treat pediatric patients with common conditions such as reflux, colic, tongue tie, gassiness, and constipation by differentiating whether the visceral distress is from dysfunction in the organ, the autonomic nervous system, cranium, fascia, or a combination of these structures.
•    Give guidance for assessing and treating babies and children with autonomic nervous system dysregulation, particularly as it relates to trauma, often presenting as irritability, difficulty sleeping, constant crying, hyperactivity, reflux, or inability to make eye contact with the caregiver.
•    Contain information specific to assessing and treating pediatric patients with cerebral palsy, torticollis, plagiocephaly, prematurity, medical trauma, and delayed milestones such as crawling.
•    Distill applicable information on embryology and neuromotor development, condensing relevant knowledge from shelves of texts and resources into a few concise chapters.
•    Emphasize how the baby’s or child’s tissues guide treatment, especially important for babies or nonverbal children.

Volume 1 takes the manual therapist through the step-by-step assessment and treatment approach for the baby or child, specifically for the autonomic nervous system, regulation, and the neuromeningeal system. It concludes with case studies integrating Visceral and Neuromeningeal Manipulation with pediatric therapy. Volume 2 continues with the assessment and treatment approaches focusing on the organs using Visceral Manipulation.

Overcoming Chronic Digestive Conditions

BOOK - Overcoming Chronic Digestive Conditions - A healthy gut is fundamental to a healthy life. Embedded within our digestive ­system is the enteric nervous system, our “second brain,” which serves to protect us from the external world of adversity, including not only viruses and bacteria, but also traumatic events. As Nikki Kenward, CST-D, MCSS, explains, past challenges and traumas, whether emotional or physical, are held in the enteric nervous system in many ways, including fascial tension, cellular changes, and unhelpful “default settings.”
