Did you know that the skull is made up of 22 individual bones that actually move every time you breathe (or at least they are supposed to). When they don’t, you see a host of different problems. We use Cranial Facial Release to get those bones moving properly. Cranial Facial Release is an advanced endo-nasal cranial technique. It is used to mobilize the bones of the face and cranium and to open up the breathing passageways.
Snoring can be caused by many different reasons but the main problem is that air can not flow unconstricted through the airways. By opening up the passageways from the nose to the throat with CFR, many people have noticed a decrease in snoring and an overall improvement in breathing. Cranial facial release is a non surgical option to try for your breathing disorders. By improving the movement of the bones in the face and skull, it not only opens the breathing passageways, it also facilitates cerebral spinal fluid flow, increases vascular flow to and venous CFR adrainage from the cranium, and optimizes brain function.
CFR is done over a series of four adjustments. There are three distinct turbinates in each nasal passage. We perform the adjustment on one turbinate on each side per adjustment for the first three. The fourth adjustment is used to open any of the ones that were more difficult on the previous three adjustments. The first adjustment takes anywhere from a half an hour to and hour with subsequent adjustments taking 10-15 minutes.
This adjustment is for anyone with trouble sleeping, snoring problems, allergies, history of concussions, migraines that continue to come back, and many other conditions that respond favorably to CFR.
Cranial Facial Release is an advanced endo-nasal cranial technique that uses the inflation of balloons inserted into the nasal cavity to help open the nasal cavity and airways. Some conditions that respond favorably to CFR are:
- sinus conditions
- post concussion symptoms
- trigeminal neuralgia
- bell’s palsy
- and more
