I had been working with Brett Smith a chiropractor for quiet awhile, and had realized that Brett had helped me as much as he could with my condition and had made an appointment only to ask Brett to write me a doctors letter, so I could take two months off work and attend Bikram's teacher training. When I went to see Brett he did I few adjustments on me, signed my letter and did some balance tests on me. Brett then recommend I try neurocranial restructuring with a friend of his as he thought it might help me with my condition. When I asked Brett what NCR was like, Brett compared it to the movie scene in Total Recall, where Arnold pulls the probe out of his head through the nose, but in reverse. As I thought about that scene, that looks painful as hell, who needs that, I got my letter for work, maybe when I get back from Bikram's teacher training will I do it. When went to a next yoga class I looked at myself in the mirror and thought who are you kidding you need all the help you can get. I called Brett's friend Glenn Frieder in Solona Beach and made an appointment. The first thing Glenn did was show me my face in mirror and pointed out where my nose, lips and chin were and how they do not line up. He then did three neuroCranial restructuring balloon inflation's and then showed me how my nose, lips and chin were now more lined up. The treatment is done by placing a balloon in one of the three sinus cavities and blowing up the balloon witch shifts the skull via sphenoid bone. One treatment is done over four days with one to three inflation's per day. On the the third day Glenn did one intense inflation, when I got up, I felt really different, hard to describe, my balance was so much better and I felt much more grounded. Glenn said the hole world is different know, I said how did you know, he laughed and said it's all over your face and eyes.
If you have had skull trauma, bad balance or have bad posture I recommend you check out their website.
This is from the NCR website:
"In the cranial structure, the sphenoid bone sits in the center. It is in contact with almost all the other bones of the skull, which interlock. It is impossible to move any single bone of the skull without moving the bones adjoining it, eventually affecting them all. The sphenoid bone is the strongest, the most difficult to get manual contact with, the most difficult to move, the most resistant to change. Without moving the sphenoid bone, no other cranial bone movement can last. It is only by moving the sphenoid bone that all the bones of the head can be moved because of the sphenoid bone's central location. And it is only by moving the sphenoid bone in a pattern that is proprioceptively correct, that the sphenoid bone can be moved in a lasting way."
