MAB1: Manual Approach to the Brain 1
MAB1 July 7-9, 2024 Palm Beach, Florida


The brain has always fascinated the medical community and scientists. The various investigative tools of the brain have made exceptional progress. For example, functional MRI can highlight not only structural, but also functional problems. Even so, the brain has remained a mystery despite all the research for which it has been a subject.

Jean-Pierre Barral has been interested in the brain for over forty years. After treating many people with head trauma, stroke, brain diseases, and psychomotor disabilities, he has developed original techniques to help these patients. All the while, remaining humble while working with this amazing cerebral mass that is capable of thinking.

The course is organized into two parts—a structural approach and a functional approach:
-The structural approach is aimed at the vascular, nervous, meningeal, ocular, barometric, and cerebrospinal fluid circulation systems.
-The functional approach explores the sense of smell, hearing, sight, language, coordination, proprioception, emotions, etc.

As usual with Barral’s seminars, there will be extensive time spent on precise hands-on treatment.
