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.
BOOK - A Touch Better describes how Dr. John E. Upledger’s work of CranioSacral Therapy (CST) inspired a shared journey of two therapists who put his work into practice. This book offers a promise of guidance for newer students to embrace the work, as well as for the sage therapist who is interested in learning about how the Upledger Institute International came into being. Embedded are personal observations of “Dr. John’s” philosophy and character, and his eventual rise to become one of Time magazine’s Top 100 Healthcare Innovators of the 21st Century.
BOOK - This well-researched, richly illustrated book begins with an overview of the biomechanics of trauma. The authors demonstrate how an osteopathic-based mechanical approach to trauma can be applied to the entire body, with a special focus on the phenomenon of whiplash. From here they move on to a functional-anatomical approach, focusing on the skull and other aspects of the central nervous system, as well as the structures that surround and protect it. Finally, they view trauma from the perspective of how it affects the different tissues and systems of the body, including the osteoarticular, visceral, and vascular systems, and the various sequelae that can occur in each of these systems.
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 - This classic textbook, revised in 2006, explores the author's central premise of Visceral Manipulation. It's based on the relationship of structure and function among the body's internal organs, and how that relationship can affect and dictate overall health and well-being.
BOOK - In Visceral Manipulation II, Barral expands on the Visceral Manipulation concepts and techniques presented in Volume I. Here, he provides the reader with new perspectives on the pathology of visceral disorders, diagnosis, indications for treatment and therapeutic techniques.
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.
