DermoNeuroModulation UK

Treating the body as if the nervous system really mattered

About the course..

DermoNeuroModulating, or -tion, is a structured, interactive approach to manual therapy that considers the nervous system of the patient from skin cell to sense of self. Techniques are slow, light, kind, intelligent, responsive and effective. Positioning of limbs and trunk affects deeper nerve trunks (by shortening and widening their container), and is combined with skin stretch directed toward cutaneous fields of nerves that branch outward into skin (which may draw neural structure further through its container).
It is prudent to remember that manual handling of a patient's physicality is only a small part of developing a complete therapeutic context for change - while optional, it can also be optimal.

Daniel Williams

Daniel - The MVMNT Therapist, is an MSK Pain & Injury Therapist / Strength Coach at Movement Therapy Clinics in Harborne. Having started his journey as a Personal Trainer when he was 18, he strived to find the best courses and people to learn from doing multiple CPD and Diplomas in many areas including Biomechanics Coaching, the Movement Therapy Diploma, Load Management, S&C for Therapists, Motivational Interviewing, DNM and many more.

 He has had the pleasure of working with a wide range of people including the Disabled, Sedentary as well as Professional Athletes. However, due to nature of what we do at Movement Therapy Clinics and the multifaceted approach with up to date, evidenced principles and programming we have had a lot of people come to us as a last resort, having tried many other available avenues available to them. Among these people there seems to be a growing amount of patients with chronic pain and neurological conditions, especially in recent years.

Some of the conditions that Daniel's clients have suffered with while they were working together include Chronic Fatigue and Post Viral Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Chronic/Persistent Pain, Chronic Tendinopathies, Functional Neurological Disorder, Depression and Anxiety to name a few.

Al Cunningham

Hi my name is Alistair Cunningham. I am an experienced soft tissue therapist, that has run my own clinic in Southport for the last 19 years. I have an MSC in Football Injury Rehabilitation from Edge Hill and previously worked as an external consultant for Liverpool Football Club as a First Team Soft Tissue Therapist. I also run a Teaching Academy from my clinic and I am the main tutor in the North West for Movement Therapy Education.
My main passion is helping people achieve their true potential.

I personally have found with technology, that it has now given me access to information that has illuded me for years. Questions I was unsure about, old narratives that have now been challenged. I started my studies doing a two-year advanced Sports Therapy Diploma back in 1999 and lots has changed since then! In the last 6 years I have had my eyes opened to all this new information that I did not realise was there. I still feel I am playing catch up as there is so much that we can get access to, but I sleep easy knowing I know more today than I did yesterday.
I am more than happy to let go of what I was taught in the past and embrace change. As it’s all about the duty of care we have for our Clients / patients that come to us. Not forgetting developing yourself to be a better Therapist.
