Group of attendees practice Active Release Techniques on each other during the hands-on portion of the webinar.


Nerve combines all ART nerve protocols into a single seminar. This is an advanced seminar requiring mastery of Upper Extremity, Lower Extremity, and Spine Level 1 skills in order to successfully complete the seminar, becoming credentialed as an ART Nerve Certified Provider™. Attendees will be trained to identify and treat pain, disorder, and discomfort originating from nerve entrapment, damage or injury, anywhere in the body.


Nerve attendees must be ART Full Body Level 1 certified, meaning successful completion of ART Upper Extremity Level 1, Lower Extremity Level 1, and Spine Level 1 is required prior to enrolling in the seminar.

The Nerve Seminar was full of fantastic information, from the research and clinical aspect. It inspired me to take a more in-depth look at cases that walk into our office on a daily basis that often seem at first like just a muscular issue. Taking the time to palpate the nerves, knowing how and when to look for a problem with a nerve that isn’t the “classic” nerve pain, enabled me to more effectively treat these conditions in my patients with great skill and precision.

The new Nerve seminar helped me in many ways. It was a great consolidation of the nerve protocols spread out over the Level 1 seminars, clarified concepts of terminal vs local vs long tract which is very helpful in understanding the different nerve protocols, and the treatment process for long tract nerves has been simplified. I finally feel confident using it on my patients!

Nerve is a breakthrough course in your clinical palpation skills and diagnostic understanding. Not only does it bring your palpation skills to the next level in preparation for the advanced level 2 seminars, but a provider taking the course will understand the prioritization of protocols to move a patient forward. After taking the Nerve seminar you’ll understand why many patients demonstrate limited carryover with traditional methods or others simply cannot move forward with their active care without exacerbation or regression!

    Testing (20-minute increments)

Snacks will be provided during scheduled breaks. Providers should expect to receive test scores after the completion of the seminar, usually within 72 hours.

*Hands-on practice of treatment protocols: During the seminar, attendees practice protocols on one another and instructors to ensure they perform the appropriate movement, incorporating correct tension, touch, and palpation, for each protocol. Attendees practice asking open-ended questions, such as: nature of injury, duration of signs and symptoms; intensity of signs and symptoms; Initial onset of pain; aggravations to worsen pain; and pain classification (sharp, dull, achy, throbbing). Attendees are instructed to look for swelling, discoloration, visual patient discomfort, analyze gait/movement/posture as it relates to pain and the nervous system, all while actively palpating various structures.

Attendees learn to effectively palpate soft tissue structures, namely, nerves, muscles (including origin, insertion, muscle belly, and tissue abnormalities), ligaments, retinaculum, fascia, joints, and bony structures. While palpating, attendees are trained to ask the patient to perform active range of motion and describe symptoms, including burning, tingling, pain, and numbness, while the attendee actively feels for abnormalities of the structure. Attendees also learn to take the patient through passive range of motion while palpating structures and feeling for abnormalities in tissue structure, with a focus on nerves, while simultaneously soliciting patient feedback.
