|Now, as I work on my
model and start to put hands on both sides of the front
and back because there are muscles and connective tissue
that run between your front and back, and those need to
be worked on too.
You see, most people think that they
have a front and a back, and they forget that between
the front and back, there's a middle. It's very
important to work on the middle if you're trying to get
the entire structure to become more symmetrical.
As the structure becomes more
symmetrical, then the changes that need to be made in
the skull become more and more
apparent. And when they're made, the body moves into a
new stable, symmetrical pattern, and there's no reason
to revert to the old patterns that were visible in the
This is an advantage over most physical medicine
techniques which tend to have a person return week after
week in the same pattern that they've been in the past,
and then get temporary relief.
See what we really need
to do is to make permanent change. And that can only be
done an increment at a time. So to create this
incremental change, we need to initially release the
structures through the spine and pelvis, and then as
those release, the head is easier to move, and then when
we get the deep bones in the head to move, especially
that sphenoid bone that I previously mentioned, as that
occurs, then we get permanent change...permanent, small,
Now you'll see me using my hands on
the forehead and at the base of the skull, pressing with
actually a lot of pressure to start to move the external
cranial bones so that when it comes time to use the
endonasal balloons, we need to use less and less
pressure to create all the changes that we're trying to
In the past, before we understood these things, we
would use much greater pressures on the head because we
weren't doing the appropriate preparation of the skull,
spine, and pelvis, and because we weren't using
assistants to help us position the patient in very
So even though I'm using a large
pressure here, at times pressing with more than 50
pounds of pressure between my hands, for most people
this treatment feels good. And they really like this
part of it most of the time.
That's another important
thing to realize about this therapy is that we do not
need expensive equipment. This work is mainly done with
the therapist's hands on a basic therapy table. Because
we were not at my home clinic for this demonstration, we
are using a simple massage table.
As for the endonasal
work that we finish the treatment with, it's less than
$100.00 for all the equipment set that we require. So
you see, what you're paying for with this therapy is the
expertise of the therapist, not the expensive equipment.
As my model's head gets to a more symmetrical position,
it becomes more apparent as to which muscles in the neck
and shoulder area need to be stretched and released so
that the changes in the skull will be easier to
accomplish. So you can see me stretching the
neck/shoulder area on the right and again on the left.
As you may note, I'm continually checking the left and
right sides, measuring the positions of the occiput the
base of the head, the ears, the eyes, always trying to
Because we are also working on the
back, we must work on the front. And the front of your
spine is accessed through the abdomen.
This is trickier
work, and work that I generally do myself rather than
have my therapist help. And you can see I'm pushing
deeply through the intestines and abdominal area,
pushing on the deep muscles of the spine where those
muscles come from the front spine, go through the
pelvis, and into the thigh.
And as I release those
muscles, we will see changes in the position of the
pelvis and spine. And through the connective tissue from
the pelvis/spine area, we'll actually be making changes
in the head as well.
Adding this work to NCR which has
been done just since the spring of the year 2000, we've
had patients make great changes in their overall
digestive function and hormonal balances. I had one lady
that maintained that she lost 12 pounds just from having
these deep abdominal muscles released from their spasms
prior to the finish of the NCR treatment each day.
those areas are released, we can feel the changes in the
body energy patterns, and I continue working until those
energy patterns feel as if they have been evened out.
Then I'll have the patient stand up
and start doing the very specialized testing techniques
used for neurocranial restructuring. This testing is
called proprioceptive testing because it is a balance-oriented
testing. This is not applied kinesiology.
As you can
see, when I push and pull on different parts of the
model's body, sometimes she sways and other times she
doesn't. It is the mapping of those gentle swaying
motions that lets us determine where the areas of
instability are throughout her structure.
Then in a
moment, when she gets on the table, we will immobilize
these unstable places by positioning her head with a
pillow today, and by having two helpers holding her legs
and pelvis, and then through the proprioceptive testing,
I've already determined where to place the balloon –
whether to be in the right or the left nostril – and
where in the nose because there's three passages inside
each nostril to put the balloon.
So we very specifically
decide where to inflate this balloon to move the
internal bones in the skull, the sphenoid, and as that bone
changes, the head structure has been moved to a new
stable pattern, and then the rest of the system will
continue to change so that the spine and pelvis change
position as well.
Then I will retest to make sure that
every area of the body now feels stable when I push so
that we don't see any of the swaying motions that we saw
When we see none of the swaying motions, when we
see the stability is there, we know treatment is
complete for the day, and then the patient can wait
until the next therapy session.
