Clinical NeuroMuscular Therapy

In 2019 we presented CNMT Module 6 which covers the Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) dysfunction and Trigger Point Referrals.

Clinical NeuroMuscular Therapy (CNMT) will give your clinical skills, and your ability to really help those with musculo-skeletal pain and dysfunction, a quantum leap to a much higher level of precision and effectiveness utilising the original Osteopathic principle of "Structure Governs Function". It is a "whole body" approach to restore the structural, functional and postural integrity of the body, allowing it to return to optimal homeostasis.This is truly a comprehensive training in Advanced Structural Bodywork.

CNMT is not only one of the most comprehensive, thorough, systematic, and scientific forms of hands-on treatment modalities available - it is further than that a Philosophy - that absolutely believes that a large majority of the pain/dysfunction/dis-ease symptoms that human beings suffer/experience are due to correctable imbalances somewhere in the structural system. Whether the imbalance be Structural/ Postural, Trigger Points, Nutritional Challenge, Limiting Beliefs/Self Dialogue - CNMT is a way of approaching Health that says ... let's restore optimal Balance in the persons structure (i.e. in their musculo/skeletal/fascial systems); let's look at their nutrition and see if we can suggest some positive changes; and let's look at their self dialogue and make sure it is supporting them getting better.

In 2017 we started the CNMT programme at the beginning with Module 1 & Module 2 - three days in total, followed by Module 3 in November! The remaining modules will be scheduled in the 2018/2019 years or on demand.

Students working towards the Certificate in CNMT need to complete all 9 CNMT modules; the Trigger Point Release & Myofascial Release Courses, an exam (separate fee will apply), and case study requirements. Details will be provided at the start of the course.

Because of the advanced nature of this training, sufficient background in Anatomy & Physiology (particularly Musculo-Skeletal Anatomy) and Clinical Assessment and Treatment skills will need to be confirmed (e.g. satisfactory completion of the WSMT Advanced Practise of Therapeutic Treatment Massage; or similar).
