About the Event

Integrating Your Knowledge Over the years, many participants in the seminars have asked if they can come observe Douglas Nelson at his clinic for a few days, as a sort of advanced neuromuscular internship. Realizing the need for this type of training and experience, we've made a special learning opportunity to a select number of therapists. At the seminars, by the nature of the format, approaches are taught in fragments and pieces. In the clinic however, all those pieces have to come together into a coherent whole. The Level Two Intensives are about bridging the gap between learning the techniques and skillfully applying and modifying them to real clients with real issues, under expert guidance. Mentoring For time eternal, the best way to master your craft is to work closely side by side with someone who has the skill set you wish to possess. This is the apprenticeship process in the skilled trades and the residency process in medical training. Only in real life can the variations and decision making be completely experienced. For therapists it means being in the clinic seeing people who have the condition we are studying, seeing the instructor guide the patient through the evaluation process seamlessly into and through the treatment and re-examination. Only experiencing this in person can teach you what is needed to take your practice to the next level, moving beyond what you learned in any technique based training and into the realm of clinical mastery. What Will Happen at a Level Two Intensive? We've developed a four pronged approach: 1.) Clarifying previous material that you may need help with regarding the Core Seminars 2.) Adding New Skills- advanced material that deepens your skill set 3.) Seeing clients with the developer of PNMT, Douglas Nelson. These clients are not models; they are real patients with real problems. In most cases, these are completely new patients and in others, Douglas has selected some clients that have a condition that has required a longer plan of therapy to illustrate the difference in applications. After each client and at the end of each day, there will be time to debrief and discuss individual patient interventions and management. 4.) Finally, we will begin to work together on the clients as they come in towards the end of the training. We believe strongly in the model of see, then do! This ensures ideal retention. Why Should you take Level Two? Your Instructor: Level Two is your chance to work side by side with Douglas Nelson, the founder of PNMT. Doug has practiced since 1977 and is a wealth of clinical experience. His vast experience with professional and collegiate athletes, professional musicians, and his many years of clinical decision making are yours to learn from in a very small group setting. There is to our knowledge no other such "neuromuscular massage residency" type training anywhere else in the world with such a high caliber of tutelage! Who Qualifies to take Level Two? In order to attend the Level Two training we need to insure that you've attained a base level of competence within the PNMT approach. To achieve this you must have taken all five Core Level seminars (PNMT: Upper Extremity, Lower Extremity, Low Back and Thoracic Spine, Head and Neck, and Form and Function). You are not required having finished certification to attend these Level Two Clinical Intensives with Douglas Nelson, but if you are not certified, prior approval from course instructor is required.
