October 25-27, 2019: Dermaneuromodulation
Time: 8:30am-5:30pm

Course Description

  • Dermo (skin)
  • Neuro (nervous system)
  • Modulation (change)

Dermoneuromodulating (DNM) is a method for handling the human body and its nervous system, in order to facilitate change, particularly in terms of its pain and motor outputs. DNM will not replace everything therapists have already learned, but it may provide a new conceptual container for it. At the very least it provides the participant with a novel approach to handling that is patient- and nervous system-friendly.

In the world of Manual Therapy (MT) there seems to be hundreds of techniques and methods that attempt to approach treating people in pain. One thing they all can agree on is that we push pull and twist skin directly and soft tissue indirectly. The speed, duration and force of these maneuvers may be different but the underlying mechanistic effects all follow the same rules.

Lately, there has been a large growth in research around the mechanisms of massage and other manual therapies with a drift into the neuroscience involved in pain. Two processes seem to be apparent when we look at the research:
1. The effects of touch have strong psychological and physiological effects.
2. The nervous system controls these effects.
If we are to use Manual Therapy as a treatment for pain resolution we should look at really understanding pain physiology within a social, biological and psychological framework. To register and for more information:

May 1-3, 2020- Anatomy Trains: Arches and Legs
Time: 815am-515pm (Friday), 830am-5pm (Saturday and Sunday)

Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function courses give you new techniques to transform structure by reaching deeper issues in the tissues. Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function is suitable for Manual Therapists, it also serves as the prerequisite to the ATSI Certification Program.

The Structural Essential series is a set of intensive soft-tissue technique courses divided into functional regions. Combining movement and manual techniques for the most efficient and long-lasting results, and using the latest research on the interaction between skeleton, muscles, joints, and fascial proprioceptors, this series of workshops will take you to a new level in therapy.  Designed with the busy manual therapist in mind, each Structural Essentials event gives you a new understanding of the relevant area. The content will outline how the structural and functional anatomy relates to many common issues as well as to the rest of the body. Based on many new and established approaches this series will give you the skills in palpation, BodyReading and functional analysis needed for the modern multidisciplinary therapist.

Arches and the Legs – Underpinning all of our structure is the foot’s interaction with the ground, imbalances here clearly have consequences further up the body. Effective arch balance can be essential for easy and graceful walking, pelvic stability, low back efficiency and even head and neck support. The feet and legs are literally the foundation for the rest of our structure and this workshop will analyze the bones of the feet and how they conspire to help or hinder the arches. We will look at the forces coming from the leg muscles and create strategies to help maintain better mechanics by dealing with myofascial restrictions and imbalances.

The Knee and Thigh – A complicated hinge in the middle of two long levers is perhaps not the best of designs – but this “elbow designed by committee” is an excellent work of engineering. The knee joint mediates forces coming down from the hip and up from the foot and still allows a wide range of movement in all but the frontal plane.
