DNM is a gentle method of interacting with patients and clients to help them resolve pain, regain function, and feel better in their lives. It is a pain-free technique that places little physical demand on the client or the therapist. While DNM may be combined with other modalities, based as it is in modern Neuroscience, it represents a shift in perspective. It is important to understand that pain and muscular tension or not evils to be banished, but are instead protective responses produced by the nervous system. Of these protective responses, the motor aspects are muscle tightness, postural guarding, and restricted range of motion— physically, as well as emotionally. The sensory experience is pain or some other discomfort. These may persist long after any injury or danger has passed. If we make the nervous system feel safe, however, it often abandons the protective responses.

DNM employs gentle stretching over specific nerves, for specific complaints or conditions. In this weekend workshop, practitioners well learn how to treat sensitized or irritated nerves relating to headaches, neck pain, whiplash, low back pain, and pelvic floor pain. Somatic movement to assist the patient in enhancing the treatment at home will also be taught.
