At PNMT, we teach more than techniques. We teach you how to approach each client that may come your way confidently. Our approach is grounded in science through our clinical practice, and through applying problem-solving skills, we show therapists how to embrace the art of their work as well. Whether through our hands-on seminars or online portal, we aim for every therapist to feel stronger confidence, competence, and connection to their profession. 

Massage Table


At the core of PNMT, we teach more than neuromuscular therapy techniques. We help you approach your treatment sessions confidently in your ability to solve the client's problems. We offer in-person, hands-on seminars nationwide and an online subscription portal with a library of educational videos and regular live interactive webinars with Doug Nelson. 


We provide therapists with the tools they need to establish a practice that is fulfilling both personally and professionally. The practice of PNMT will challenge you to utilize your hands, your head, and your heart. Your hands, because the palpation skills required to do this work are much more excellent than what is needed for more general massage. Your head, because while you may feel with your hands, you must assign meaning to your feelings. This requires a knowledge base to interpret what you have felt. Your heart is important because, first and foremost, we are human beings who profoundly connect with another person. Our clients often come to us in pain and share the most vulnerable aspects of their lives. We are human beings first and therapists second. 


Therapists who make PNMT a central part of their practice are extremely successful. They have been doing this work for decades, which is unusual. There is a reason for this longevity; the work is easier on the body than most therapies. We focus on elegance and efficiency to obtain maximum results. Often, the difference between success and failure is the slight turn of a wrist or a change in the angle of entry. 

To that point, there is no end or arrival point to learning. PNMT keeps changing and evolving as we learn more. Manuals are printed for each seminar. If you took a seminar with us ten years ago, you will likely be surprised how much has changed. This is as it should be. We will never know enough; the therapists who study with us share our passion for life-long learning in service to the people who grace our treatment tables. This is where the portal is most supportive - for those who long to continue learning alongside us. 


The therapists drawn to our seminars are problem solvers unsatisfied with routines or overly simple answers to complicated questions. They are passionate about using massage therapy to help clients with specific muscular aches and pains. If that describes you, please consider exploring PNMT to its fullest. Your clients will thank you.
