NVR techniques and strategy are transformative in the context of Structural Integration–so helpful for clients who need an extra nudge to help them emerge from an old structural pattern. After this course, you’ll want to invite all your “graduated” clients to sign up for a tune-up series that incorporates NVR.
The library of NVR techniques that we progress through in Part 1 of this course series will expand your anatomy map and improve your palpation skills. You will find yourself using less physical effort, your work will become more efficient, and you’ll have many new strategic approaches for classic structural patterns.
Techniques learned in this class will help you to address persistent issues such as:
- forward head posture
- thoracic outlet related nerve symptoms
- chronic pain and instability related to spondylolisthesis
- pelvic torsion and hip issues
- discomfort and thoracic movement limitations related to scoliosis
- asymmetrical gait
- lower-extremity-related chronic low back pain.
Seasoned practitioners love the way that NVR enhances their current practice, whether or not they are still doing series work. However, new SI practitioners may take Part 1 right after graduating with confidence that they won’t be pulled off track from doing their series work. If you have already begun studying cranial, visceral, and/or neural work, this class and the rest of the course series will help you to “fill in the gap” on the spectrum of touch between light-pressure, osteopathic-style work and the broad, deep touch of classic SI.
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.
Distance Learning Format
For the distance learning version of the Manual NVR-SI course series there are five 4-hour live online classes instead of three 7-hour in-person classes (20 CE hours instead of 21 CE hours). Classes will be recorded for you to have access to later for review, but please note that you must attend class live in order to receive CE credit. Live attendance is also required if you are on the pathway to certification.
Alternative Plan for SI practitioners in Australia, New Zealand, and East Asia
If you live in a part of the world where morning classes Pacific time are in the middle of the night for you, Kier is offering the distance-learning version of the NVR course series at a time that will work well for East Asia, Australia, and New Zealand—from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm Pacific Time on Fridays, which is Saturday morning in East Asia.
This live online cohort will continue to meet at a reasonable hour for you and is recommended to SI practitioners in this corner of the world! Join NVR Part 1 Cohort 2b this July and August, and continue your studies with NVR Part 2 at the same meeting time in November-December.
NVR-SI Part 1: Neurovascularly-Informed Structural Integration
(If you are a structural integrator taking the NVR course series due to time zone constraints, you
will still be earning the Anatomy Trains Advanced Certification in Neurovascular Release for Structural Integration.)
Overview of the NVR-SI Certification Pathway
The curriculum in the NVR-SI course series (for structural integrators) is equivalent to the NVR course series. However, SI practitioners are provided with techniques for all regions of the body in NVR-SI Part 1, whereas manual therapists focus exclusively on the neck region in NVR Part 1, the first course in their series.
The next three courses in the NVR-SI series (Parts 2, 3, and 4) allow us to explore more thoroughly how to work strategically and knowledgeably with the vascular network, the peripheral and cranial nerves, and the dural restrictions that are limiting movement.
By the time you have completed Manual NVR-SI Parts 1-4, you will have received all the NVR techniques that are taught in the course series for non-SI practitioners.
The fifth course in the series (Part 5) is a practicum focused on assessment and application with outside models.
By completing all five Parts of the NVR-SI curriculum you will earn Anatomy Trains Advanced Certification in Neurovascular Release for Structural Integration.
