Lowen Systems: Dynamic Manual Interface

What DMI Is

DMI is an advanced comprehensive form of manual therapy that embodies some of the most current research in the dynamics of the human body. DMI utilizes the body’s self corrective mechanisms to improve tissue mobility, bio-mechanics and system balance. Practitioners of DMI have learned to feel, interpret and facilitate specific subtle rhythms within the body. These rhythms are the vehicle for communication and regulation. While the basic concepts are simple, the training for the hands and the mind is extensive. Familiarity with anatomical details, bio-mechanics and physiology is important for the advanced practitioner.
DMI can help virtually any condition, regardless of age group, and although it is not curative, many situations that have not responded well to other forms of treatment or therapy often respond favorably to this work.
DMI is a light touch technique, utilizing a precise interface which has both physical and energetic components. The focus is highly specific, but orchestrated by the tissues and their rhythms. With DMI’s unique method of hand usage combined with a thorough understanding of the organization and relationships of the body, a skilled practitioner can interact specifically with many different tissues of the body for assessment and treatment purposes.
DMI is both a science and an art. It is extraordinarily effective from a client’s perspective and both interesting and exhilarating to learn and perform.
