Dermoneuromodulation (DNM) is an innovative manual therapy technique for addressing pain and movement impediment, born from an understanding of modern neurophysiology. Dermo refers to the skin, neuro refers to the nervous system, and modulation means change. In other words, using the skin to affect the nervous system to produce change. This method of handling the body is intelligent in that it places a high significance on how our bodies are organized in receiving, discerning, and evaluating information and also on which system is most responsible for orchestrating change. DNM recognizes the role of our nervous system, targets the vast array of touch-receptors in the skin (about 6 yards of nerve receptors per square inch of skin), and uses a specific type of input conducive to working with the brain to make changes.
