The programme has undergone several reviews in the intervening years, always focusing on cutting edge research in the bodywork arena.

The National Training Centre will continue to honour Leon Chaitow’s legacy by passing on the spirit and essence of his work through the world’s leading bodywork authorities on the Higher Diploma in Neuromuscular Therapy.

Highly Respected

The Higher Diploma in Neuromuscular Therapy, with a focus on Biotensegrity, covers all relevant areas to ensure your status as an advanced pain and injury specialist.

NTC’s Higher Diploma in Neuromuscular Therapy is a must for therapists wishing to establish a flourishing career in this specialist field. It is a unique course providing advanced knowledge and clinical skills centred around the model of Biotensegrity.

Our world renowned tutors include Joanne Avison, John Sharkey, Kevin Prunty, David Anderson and Dr Wilbour Kelsick in conjunction with a number of international guest lecturers recognised as world experts in their field.

This course is for qualified bodywork professionals who want to advance their clinical knowledge and skills to offer advanced intervention procedures for patients with chronic soft tissue pain, muscle and nerve pain.

The course has been carefully designed to maximise the potential for interaction between the tutors and learners in a very friendly and non intimidating atmosphere.

Students have access to our amazing student learning portal where they can watch the tutorials on video as often as they like until they perfect a skill or truly understand a theory.

This course will interest students who are serious about making a life time career in Neuromuscular Therapy in Ireland or overseas. Learners will acquire advanced knowledge and skills supported by the Biotensegrity model providing all they need for a successful career treating chronic pain.

In 2015, and again in 2018, the Higher diploma course underwent an extensive programme review leading to several exciting changes and additions to the programme. In 2020, the course was once again reviewed this time with the introduction of online content due to the COVID19 pandemic. Now, in 2021 learners will enjoy the benefits of blended learning attending live lectures from the comfort of their own home, using cutting edge technology coupled with the required onsite tutorial weekends.

Learners can enjoy webinars and videos that they can watch at home in their own time or on the move, on their tablet, smartphone or other device.

Learning from world recognised leaders our learners will discard outdated notions, gain an appreciation for the latest accepted models and theories and develop insights that will create fresh perspectives in clinical reasoning and activity.

Learners will complete the course with a tremendous reserve of strategic thinking that they can put to immediate use as contingencies demand.

NTC are responsible for bringing Structural Integration to Ireland as a formal module of the Higher Diploma. Students will learn the Art of Structural Integrity which is a series of lessons designed to integrate seeing and assessment skills with advanced whole-body soft tissue manipulation techniques.

A particular focus will be on the specific aspects of the body-wide architecture in the context of Biotensegrity and how it is integrated at every level of fascia, form and functional movement, as a whole.

Techniques will include integrated client motion and specific depth adjustment with client movement techniques to enhance self-regulation.

In addition the European Neuromuscular Therapy student will also be exposed to American influences including Neuromuscular techniques which will provide students with a wonderful tool box of techniques suitable for multiple pain management scenarios.

We use close up video recording of the hands-on aspects for large screen viewing during each class with online access to a library of current and previous videos through the NTC student learning portal at any time during the course.
