People are Talking!

Read what people are saying about Barral Institute and Barral techniques:
"The class is phenomenal and each year they break new boundaries of ways of exposing specific structures relevant to Jean-Pierre’s work.  This year was no different with exposing clearly the nerve roots of the lumbar plexus, the connection with the dura, and the orientation from not only the anterior aspect but also posterior with a prone presentation. This had not been done this way before and was so valuable to see."
- Rosie Greene, RM, BI-D, New Zealand

From Instagram:
People do not come to see us because of dysfunction of their internal organs. They come to see us because of the RESULTS of dysfunction/restriction of internal organs. A patient with back stiffness, pain in thigh and back came to me for treatment. Her body spoke to me, “left kidney.” After treatment, patient felt the “gentle touch” was much different than bone cracking or muscle stretching. Yet, the low back was supple right after treatment. Patient felt she had more solid walking gait and she was surprised by the change her body felt through gentle touch, and it was not about muscles, herniated disk, or spinal joint problems.”
