DNM level 1
Will be taught by Mike Reoch. Mike will deliver a strong foundation of the entire model, and an appropriate introduction to the handholds. This course is what you would expect out of any first-time class. Mike will also touch on the cranial nerves on the final day of the 3-day course, which is not something that is usually done.
DermoNeuroModulating, or -tion, is a structured, interactive approach to manual therapy that considers the nervous system of the patient from skin cell to sense of self. Techniques are slow, light, kind, intelligent, responsive and effective. Positioning of limbs and trunk affects deeper nerve trunks (by shortening and widening their container), and is combined with skin stretch directed toward cutaneous fields of nerves that branch outward into skin (which may draw neural structure further through its container).
It is prudent to remember that manual handling of a patient's physicality is only a small part of developing a complete therapeutic context for change - while optional, it can also be optimal.
We know how it sometimes takes some time for the work to sink in and to fully implement into one’s practice after attending their first DNM course. While it’s one thing to wrap your head around the concepts it’s quite another to break out of old habits. We get that. So rather than offering you another course where you might bust out a technique here or there, we want to do something different, something that has real potential of creating change for you and your clients. We want to give you the best opportunity to update the way you practice and to do so with confidence.
