ose Luis Perez Batlle was born after a long 34-hour instrument-assisted delivery that affected his health and his way of perceiving and understanding the world and illness.

Influenced by his osteopathic training, he was always very interested in discovering the origin of dysfunctions. For him, as an osteopath, it was essential to find those areas to aid his patients, and his dedication to this matter was untiring. His work has always focused closely on releasing those areas that could be the origin of the dysfunction.

For him, as an osteopath, it was essential to find those areas to aid his patients, and his dedication to this matter was untiring.

His work has focused closely on releasing those areas that could be the origin of the dysfunction.

For a long time, he attributed the origin of multiple dysfunctions to alterations in the TMJ (temporomandibular joint).

He worked enthusiastically in this direction for many years and, after finding in so many cases that the TMJ was involved in the origin of a great majority of dysfunctions, he concluded that, in addition, the cranial vault was almost always implicit in these TMJ tensions as a primary manifestation.

In 1998 he began his research after the birth of his first child.

He found clearly that in most natural non-instrument-assisted births, apparently without consequences, there was almost always significant tension in a very particular area of the baby’s cranial vault.

This specific tension must have occurred before the expulsion since it could also be found in children born by cesarean section. This shows that the damage could not have been produced in the birth canal, but probably before the delivery.

After this discovery, he began to evaluate and work with many children and adults on that specific area of the cranial vault, even though there was no apparent injury or sign, and he observed that in most cases, there was a positive response to the entire body’s fascial system.

This is what Jose Luis called the Primary Pull.

The Primary Pull is a tension that develops during the last months of pregnancy, when the baby-fetus is positioned head down, resting its head on its mother’s firm and rigid pelvis. This, together with the mother’s movement and the effect of gravity, generates tensions that will shape and force the baby’s cranial and meningeal structure, and thus, it will be transmitted through fascial tensions to our entire visceral and skeletal-muscle system, etc.

José Luis carried out research work with more than 1000 patients, the 1st session of which consisted of working on the Primary Pull, whatever the patient’s dysfunction.

Before applying the primary pull release technique, he gave all the patients a podographic examination to assess what percentage of their body weight they rested on the ground. After applying the technique, he carried out the podographic study again, and it was surprising to find that, in practically all cases, there was a global change.

After the session, the points of contact had changed positively and dramatically in almost all the cases.

This confirmed and corroborated the importance of the Primary Pull work at any age.

This study confirmed the importance of releasing the Primary Pull at any age.

José Luis, in his study on the search for the primary origin generalized in the vast majority of dysfunctions and tensions that we all suffer in some way, attributed these dysfunctions, often life-long, mainly to the pressure on the baby-fetus’ head during the last months of gestation.

During that period of time, he also researched with fresh cadavers, analyzing the anatomy of this Primary Pull at the parietal level in the Valencia School of Medicine, and later on in the Granada School of Medicine. This study underlined the importance of always evaluating and releasing the tensions acquired in the intrauterine process and in labor.

The research is still open with an incipient line of work in the Granada School of Medicine.
