Jean-Pierre Barral is an Osteopath and Registered Physical Therapist from France.
He initially developed Visceral Manipulation, a manual therapy focusing on the internal organs of the body,
which he began teaching in the United States in 1985. In addition, Jean-Pierre Barral and Alain Croibier,
also an Osteopath from France, developed therapy techniques specific to the Nervous System, which lead to
Neural Manipulation being taught in the United States beginning in 1999. Jean-Pierre Barral’s
continued studies and clinical work, combines with Alain Croibier’s scientific information, led to the development,
practice, and teaching of "Manual Articular Approach," focusing on joints of the body.
Since then, they have trained a team of International Instructors that teach
Visceral Manipulation, Neural Manipulation and Manual Articular Approach
seminars around the world.
They have also authored numerous textbooks for healthcare professionals,

the Peripheral Nerves, Manual Therapy for the Cranial Nerve, Visceral Vascular Manipulation.
