DNS is a new manual rehabilitative and performance enhancement approach based upon developmental movement principles.

Where was it developed?

Through the Prague School of Rehabilitation which is based at Charles University's Motol Hospital in the capital of the Czech Republic, Prague.

What is it's history?

The Prague School has been famous for many decades as a leading teaching authority in the field of rehabilitation, frequently initiating new manual care concepts. Professors Vladmir Janda, Karel Lewit, Vaclav Vojta and most recently Pavel Kolar have each been world renowned clinical researchers and rehabilitation specialists.

Where it is now taught and practised?

This particular approach has rapidly gained recognition throughout the world having begun in Prague it has spread through Europe, America and now Australasia.

Development in Australia?

Australian clinicians have been travelling to Prague for post graduate training for the past 12 years. There are now two (2) Australian certified lecturers in DNS, one of these being Inger Villadsen. DNS Courses are now offered in Australia.

How does it work?

DNS is designed to evoke motor patterns in the brain in order to activate the body's "stabilising system" and thereby facilitating more effective balanced movement and endurance. This allows for improved body awareness, posture and respiration. DNS techniques stimulate the brain which controls all neuromuscular activity. Consistent with the objectives of chiropractic this method helps restore structural and postural alignment of the body's neuromuscular skeletal system.
