NFR Training: Course Syllabus

Neuro-Fascial Re-EducationTM (NFR) is based on the premise that it is possible to re-education the nervous system and the fascial system while balancing the acupressure system to restore homeostasis to the body. This process will eliminate the underlying structural and functional imbalances which generate pain in areas of the body far from the originating imbalance.

The goal of NFR Training is to enable students to understand how chronic pain originates, and how to apply NFR techniques to alleviating pain for clients.
