In VM1 you will study the models and theories of functional biomechanics as viewed from Barral’s innovative approach.
Jean-Pierre Barral’s Visceral Manipulation is not just another manual therapy that we add to our work, but rather it is a “style” of communicating with the body. We are doing all of these techniques, not to FIX something in the body but rather to ‘wake up a little something’ as Jean-Pierre Barral says over and over again.
Barral says, “What we are wanting to do is to give the body a clear message.” “To be specific in a short time.” He says these things over and over. These are his messages of proprioceptive communication—his unique style and approach to working with patients. To have and hold this deep appreciation of the messages of the body. To hear him say, “Ahh you know, you can fool yourself with your stories; only the tissues know.”
