Check out this free 1 hr Intro to DNM class! Put it to practice in just 60 minutes   

The full online course launches in March 2022

With options for live classroom instruction. Early adopters get lifetime access to the online course and all updates at a one time, pre-launch markdown to celebrate the occasion   


In this course, participants will learn both the crucial theoretical framework of dermoneuromodulation (DNM) and its practical methodology offered through a hybrid of convenient online learning and/or live classroom instruction. Specific manual applications are demonstrated under a lens of clinical reasoning aligned with the most current understanding of touch physiology and pain science. Because the language of physiology is universal, the DNM framework seamlessly incorporates into any modality making it a valuable asset to any evolving practice and of great benefit to many patients and clients, some of whom may not have found relief through other methods.

What is DermoNeuroModulation?

DermoNeuroModulation is an interactive approach to manual therapy researched and developed by Diane Jacobs, PT. It has gained rapid recognition and popularity throughout the world because of the unique attention given to the often ignored cutaneous nerves in the skin, our largest organ.

The clinical outcomes can be phenomenal and the changes positively profound.

 The terms dermo meaning "skin", neuro referencing the "nervous system", and modulation meaning "change", describe how DNM helps to affect changes in the nervous system via focused interplay with the cutaneous nerves. This is done through gentle, targeted manipulation of the skin.

The theoretical framework of DNM is solidly based in neuroscience, gaining the accolades of respected skeptics and the interest of clinicians from a wide range of massage and manual therapy professions. It's indicated in providing relief and rehabilitation of nerve entrapments and tunnel syndromes, neural irritation, muscular bracing or spasm, non-specific discomfort, chronic pain, musculoskeletal pain, and other dysfunction presentations.

The application of DNM is pain-free and safe for almost all patients and clients and eliminates strain on the practitioner's body. "Techniques are slow, light, kind, intelligent, responsive and effective. Positioning of limbs and trunk affects deeper nerve trunks, and is combined with skin stretch directed toward cutaneous fields of nerves that branch outward into skin", as stated by Diane Jacobs.
