Dermoneuromodulation (DNM) applications reflect an interactive approach to manual therapy that uses positioning of limbs and torso to affect deeper nerve trunks, combined with skin stretch to positively affect cutaneous nerves and relieve pain.
Participants will be able to empower clients with knowledge thereby increasing the ability to help them.
Participants will gain an improved understanding of pain science and how to apply it to manual/movement therapies, in order to help people in pain.
This class is excellent for Massage Therapists, Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Occupational Therapists, Nurses, and other manual/movement therapists.
