head has slid forward because youíve been in an auto
wreck, your neck needs to be straighter in order to hold
up that head. This is what we call whiplash.
If instead, your head
has slid back a little bit, so that it wants to roll
this way, as if it were on a teeter-totter, you see,
then you get too much neck curve. And most of the time,
you will develop a sway back as well.
If your cheekbones are
at a slant and your forehead is at a different slat or
rotation, you will start having a more difficult head to
hold up, and your spine will start to spiral. This we
Are you starting to see
the idea there? The idea is that the lack of symmetry in
your head creates these changes in your spine and pelvis
in order to hold up your head. So the key becomes, how
do you make lasting change in the head?
And the way we make a
lasting change in the head, because of the way these
bones all interlock, is to work on the sphenoid.
Because, the sphenoid sits in the center.
So, if we do something
to move the head into a different place, say just
working with the forehead for instance, those bones are
not going to move into this new position unless the
sphenoid moves as well.
Yet, we cannot come
into contact with the sphenoid, except here in the
temple and here inside the mouth. Those are the only
places accessible from the outside.
This means that most
cranial manipulation techniques are lucky to make
long-term changes in the head. And they require many
repetitions in order to get those lucky instances.
But, with NeuroCranial
Restructuring, we use small balloons that go through the
nose, through here, and into the top of the throat, and
inflate them briefly, and that balloon pushes on the
And, that moment is
what permits us to start, by carefully calculating where
it should move, that allows us to slightly rock the
sphenoid in different directions.
So that rocking motion,
when we harness the connective tissue inside the head,
the meninges other connective tissues in here are
bunched up like springs.
And, so when that
sphenoid bone moves a small amount, that connective
tissueís spring unleashes, and the bones start returning
towards their original design. Because, you see, being
born and living our lives, having dental work,
playground accidents, car wrecks, accidents and falls
and beatings, these kinds of situations tend to compress
the head bones so that we have a distortion in our skull
structure and a distortion in the connective tissue.
So, as we unlock the
sphenoid, that connective tissue, like a spring, starts
expanding and the head starts moving incrementally, a
step at a time, back toward its original design. And
that accumulation of all those movements are what we
create in the day-to-day actions of NeuroCranial
After you consider the
differences in the concepts underlying NeuroCranial
Restructuring, when you compare it to other physical
medicines, the differences between NCR and most physical
medicine therapies should be obvious.
What we do with
NeuroCranial Restructuring is to unwind or unlock the
structures that have been damaged repetitively through
our lives by incrementally unlocking your structures and
letting your body return to its original state.
We optimize the
function of the brain and the nervous system, and return
the bone structures to their positions as they were
designed to be in. So that flexibility, chronic muscle
patterns, pains, these go away without having to treat
them as pains.
We can treat a wide
variety of conditions. We can treat nervous system
problems, we treat mechanical problems of the skull, so
we can treat TMJ, breathing problems, double vision,
occlusion problems of the bite.
As the head shape
optimizes, it gets simpler and simpler to hold up the
spine. So spinal growth problems like whiplash,
swayback, hunchback, scoliosis, those can all be
addressed as well. As these structures start to move
towards their optimal positions and the pelvis rotations
and twistings start to change, and this causes the leg
length to even out.
It will take care of
gait problems as well. So many problems are addressed
with a conceptually simple therapy because we are right
at the core, right at the root of problems. This is one
of three things that you want to work with in order to
achieve optimal health.
You need to work with
your structure and NeuroCranial Restructuring to me is
the optimal technique to work with structure. But, we
also need to work with biochemistry. So, this has to do
with diets and lifestyle and helping correct vitamin
deficiencies with vitamins and minerals, that kind of
detoxification techniques so we want to get rid of petro-chemicals
and heavy metals and certainly bacteria and viruses and
things as well. So with those three items being taken
care of, the biochemistry, the detoxification, and the
structure, you have a firm tripod, a foundation for you
to build your health. So you see, to me just nutrition
alone or just structure alone, is not enough.
We call NeuroCranial
Restructuring the ultimate cranial therapy because this
is a physical medicine technique that deals with the
cause of your nervous system and muscular strength
conditions rather than just the effects. We are not
interested in just giving you relief.
When we perform NCR on
you, we want to gradually reverse the trend of
deterioration. We want to get rid of the effects of car
accidents and falls and beatings and the adverse
reactions to various other therapies, and we can do
that, a step at a time by using the NCR therapy
So, conditions as
diverse as headaches to sciatica, and from sleep apnea
to anxiety, can all be treated with the same
individualized and very particular kind of therapy.
This is not a shotgun
style therapy. We will not be able to treat everyone the
same way. Each day, each personís treatment is entirely
And, because we work
with you in that individual way, we can bring you back
towards your structural and nervous system optimized
This is a wonderful
opportunity for you, and for me. It makes work fun. I
love coming to work because of the way we can help
almost anybody that can come in the door.
I go to the shopping
mall and all I see are people that donít feel good. And
with NCR, you do feel good, and I think you should try
