DermoNeuro

Modulation

What Is this? 

DermoNeuroModulation 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.

Course Description

We know how it sometimes takes 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. 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.

Therefore, we will be teaching a two-part series course, back to back.

Due to the pandemic getting in the way of the last agreed course dates we have now confirmed the following dates for 2022. The first leg of the 2xDNM tour will be in March 2022 with the second leg in June 2022, 3 months later. Both are 3-day courses, Friday-Sunday.

DNM Level 1 – 18th – 20th March 2022

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.

DNM Level 2 – 10th -12th June 2022

Will be taught by Rey Allen. Rey will review the course material from DNM Level 1 with class discussion on what you each learned over the four months putting these concepts into practice. New material will include clinical reasoning, critical thinking, with an emphasis on quality of touch as well as finding creative ways through visual guides and the use of metaphors to elicit descending modulation and amplify treatment outcomes. DNM Level 2 will serve as the mentorship phase of this series, yet is also designed as a stand-alone course (where new students are welcome). The goal of DNM Level 2 is to get clear and confident.

DNM is one of the most rewarding practices and we’re confident you will feel the same way after this course series.
