DNM (Dermoneuromodulation) works well with nerve compressions and pain that has persisted despite many other treatments. Many common pain complaints that have not been attributed to another cause may have their root cause in a nerve compression - neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, hip pain. Working in the DNM mindset requires a shift in thinking from the structural - posture, imbalances etc - to thinking about how we can inform the nervous system using the skin in a painless and wholly pleasant way and wait for a change. DNM uses slow and soft techniques, makes the comfort of the client of utmost importance and recognises that it is not the therapist who is actively making any change but it is the adaptation of the clients nervous system that makes any changes. For such a gentle approach, it can get results quickly those positive changes should persist for the long term, as the nerves are relieved and homeostasis returns.
I have been fascinated by DNM for a number of years but have only just had the opportunity to take the course. It involves a lot of new learning - the nerve anatomy is by far the largest learning curve as well as understanding how the skin works and informs the brain.
Treatment with DNM will not be like a massage treatment, it provides the body with a lot less input, to make the message clearer. With DNM your experience of the treatment is vitally important - does it feel good or not. It is slow and gentle and this too is important in allowing time for the body to adjust and recalibrate.
