For Benjamin Fontes
Benjamin here are the pictures I posted in Le Neruo-Fil
The question was asked in the thread how is DNM learned without taking a class. It was also expressed that DNM looks similar to Jones Strain Counterstrain.
I would suggest the difference is addressed by Diane's Interactor-Operator Essay.
My post was to explain that DNM does not treat the nerves roughly.
DNM is about finesse and waits for characteristics of correction: Warming, ease, softening, surprise.
Diane is the copyright holder of the dissection, and balloon technique pictures.
Thank you Benjamin.

Thanks for pulling that together Karen.
I'd like to add that I used SCS (which I learned out of books) for years before I ever figured out what I really thought was going on with it, or what I was likely doing to the neural tree using it. It's a good manual treatment system I think (for an operator model), but kinda vague and very tissue-based in the theory department. I adapted some of it to DNM and to my own body (size and arm length and stamina), made up lots of new positions to treat people in, added a lot of skin stretch, and an interactive explanatory model.

thanks for putting it here together as I ask you.
Thank You very much.
Interesting to see some similarities between DNM and SCS. I think there is individual thought but too colective thought. A good example of colective thought is somasimple. We all manual therapists sharing a lot of insights.
