Peter  Schwind - The Croissant in the Brain


A plea against apparatus medicine

Jean-Pierre Barral, the French osteopathy pope, is known by his successful books Understanding the Language of Our Body and The Language of Our Joints. The rolfer Peter Schwind, who works with him, shows in this book the enormous progress Jean-Pierre Barral has brought to osteopathy.

The case histories included here seem incredible on first reading, but fit quite well into the overall picture of the decades of work by Jean-Pierre Barral. Every experience, every illness, every accident is stored in the human body, and Barral’s hypersensitive hands feel where there is an imbalance in the body. This book is a plea against machine-centred illness diagnoses and an appeal to readers to put more trust in their own body perception.

•The first book about the exceptional therapist Jean-Pierre Barral, the leading French osteopath

•Case studies from nearly 40 years of osteopathy practice
