  • Description
  • Course Details

Throughout the Manual NVR course series, you will learn how to work strategically with the
vascular system to release hypertonic muscles that are shortening the myofascial tracks,
distorting posture, and limiting movement. You will also learn to free up peripheral nerves,
cranial nerves, and dural restrictions to improve structural balance and function.
You will gain new strategic approaches for classic functional problems, you will find yourself
using less physical effort, your work will become more efficient, and you will improve your sense
of layer palpation which will enhance your outcomes.

In Manual NVR Part 1, our focus will be the neck, head, and upper thorax, including the
shoulder girdle and the lungs. We will discuss using these techniques to address persistent
issues such as forward head posture, thoracic outlet related nerve symptoms, shoulder injuries,
and the discomfort and thoracic movement limitations related to scoliosis.
As you take this work into your practice, your clients or patients will develop their proprioception,
interoception, nervous system regulation, and an appreciation for how smart and adaptive their
body is.

Support throughout the course and in the months following

The $1000 tuition includes small group and private mentoring in addition to the 21 class hours:

  • Online access to videos documenting all the techniques taught in your live course.
  • Free private fifteen-minute mentoring sessions via Zoom, each focused on one client case
    (scheduled as needed during the year after your course has completed).
  • Student discount on longer 45-minute mentoring sessions via Zoom, $80 instead of $150.
  • A three-month subscription to the NVR Monthly Seminar Series, a total of six hours of live
    sessions and recordings.

You are welcome to alternate between distance-learning and in-person courses as you continue
with Parts 2, 3, and 4 in this series.

Overview of the NVR Certification Pathway
In Manual NVR Part 2, the second course in the certification series, we will focus on the pelvis and hips and continue our work with the torso.

In Manual NVR Parts 3 and 4, we will work into the extremities, discussing lower body patterns and upper body patterns, and you will continue learning to address neurovascular restrictions affecting the lungs and other organs.

NVR Part 5 is a practicum focused on assessment and practical application, in which you will be applying all that you have learned in Parts 1-4 while doing full sessions with outside models.

By completing all five Parts in the Manual NVR course series, practitioners earn Anatomy Trains Advanced Certification in Manual Neurovascular Release.
