The foundations of this work are informed by pain science and dermoneuromodulation (DNM) concepts. These enable practitioners to work more effectively and customize sessions appropriately for each client, especially when workwing with chronic pain clients and complex health conditions. Setting the context for establishing therapeutic rapport and effective communication are also discussed.
"Since class ended 10 days ago, I've done 7 Pillossage sessions. The response had been overwhelmingly positive, with several rebooking immediately and two booking sessions for family members. Two long term clients noted how this method took my previous use of heated gel packs up to an even more enjoyable level. This technique really suits my style of massage quite well and works wonderfully in tandem with the chiropractor I work with. I'm still in awe of how less taxing it is on my body." - Jessica Farrar-Farmer, LMT
