Neural Manipulation examines mechanical relationships between the cranium/spine hard frame to the dura and neural elements. It provides assessment and treatment approaches to address restrictions of the dural and neural components not commonly focused on with musculoskeletal symptoms. Neural Manipulation identifies and releases local nerve restrictions while at the same time examines the effect these local fixations have on the rest of the body, and by accessing this relationship, resolves the more comprehensive (global) dysfunctional patterns.

A nerve only functions correctly when it is able to move feely within its surrounding structures. The modality of Neural Manipulation facilitates nerve conductivity and intraneural blood supply for local and systemic responsiveness. By understanding the detailed anatomy of the neural manipulation, one can clearly see the potential for pathological change when nerves are restricted.

Manual therapy, as it applies to the treatment of nerves, follows the standard principles of mobility and function. For optimal function nerves must be able to move freely within its surroundings. This freedom of movement is essential for:

  • nerve conduction
  • electromagnetic conduction
  • intraneural blood supply
  • intraneural nerve supply
  • local and systemic responsiveness



This course explores evaluation and treatment techniques for peripheral nerves of the upper body.


  • Explore in detail the anatomy and function of the peripheral nerves of the upper body.
  • Discover typical pain patterns that arise from dysfunction of these peripheral nerves.
  • Learn evaluation methods and treatment techniques to facilitate normal functioning of these peripheral nerves.
  • Discover various methods for releasing restrictions in nerves.
  • Explore practical integration into treatment sessions.

We leave it up to each prospective student to assume responsibility for advance preparation; we cannot screen students for their level of readiness. You may, however, find yourself frustrated and left behind if you do not study before hand.  It is suggested that you read through the Visceral Manipulation II text book and look up the terms for the following lists of terms and structures provided.  It is also recommended that you begin your study well in advance of the scheduled workshops to allow for unforeseen interruptions and a comfortable learning pace.  We want this to be an interesting and intriguing educational experience for all of you.

Wearing loose, comfortable, layered clothing and indoor slippers during the course is recommended. Avoid wearing tight clothes. As several techniques require the touch of the bare skin, it is inevitable to wear such clothing which allows the skin to be accessed easily. Due to the nature of the method, nails have to be cut short.

At the end of the training students will receive a certification issued by The Barral Institute. The issue of the certification is subject to the students’ presence during the whole period of the course, as well as, to their active participation and cooperation. The issued certificate does not qualify for individual medical activity!


"Learning to evaluate and treat peripheral nerves will enable you to evaluate and treat chronic pain more efficiently and effectively."

~ NM2, November 2018, practitioner with 34 years experience

"Specifically understanding the nervous system, the mobility and anatomy of nueral structures and implications for restriction in this system on all mechanical dysfunction is integral in treating the whole person."

~ NM2 May 2019, Physical Therapist

'The Barral courses have been fantastic. I have completed VM1-4, Listening 1, NM 1-3 & MAUE. I cannot say enough positive things about them. The instructors are all very good, their anatomical knowledge is exceptional, the techniques are very useful, and the information you get on each course is great. I can highly recommend them to further your clinical knowledge, palpation and technical skills. As an osteopath, I use the techniques I have learnt on these courses daily and I see fantastic results with patients.''

 L. Bennett, Osteopath
