Central Nervous System Restoration Technique

Central Nervous System Restoration Technique uses finger cots, tied to a blood pressure bulb to deliver an even and effective controlled force of pressure through one of the six nasal passages (three on each side with an upper, middle and lower nasal turbinate). The passage that needs to be treated can be found through muscle testing and the head position of the patient needed at the time of the adjustment can also be found using muscle testing. The finger cot/balloon is quickly inflated until it goes through to the back of the throat and is deflated. This procedure puts pressure on the nasal walls, but more importantly it adjusts the cranial plates. 
Sutures of the Skull and Breathing
Breathing causes a slight opening and closing of the cranial sutures throughout life. Breathing also causes the pumping of CSF throughout the brain and spinal cord. This hydrates all the nerves of your body and allows them to function properly. Sutures were once thought to be fused shortly after birth. This has been proven to be false as shown by many studies including a research study done by NASA. The study shows that there is slight movement of skull bones on respiration in adults.

Cranial Subluxation
A locked up suture of the skull can cause lack of blood flow, CSF flow and oxygen to the parts of the brain surrounding that suture.  This is called a cranial subluxation or a locked up joint in your head.  This causes the brain to dry out and decrease in function.

What can cause cranial subluxation?

  • Traumatic birth
  • Head injuries
  • Injuries to the tail bone
  • Anything that causes inflammation of the CNS resulting in scar tissue including allergies and infections causing meningitis

Problems that can result from cranial subluxation

  • Headaches
  • TMJ (misalignment of your bite and jaw dysfunction)
  • Sinus problems
  • Difficulty breathing through your nose
  • Sleep apnea (decreased oxygen to the brain during sleeping)
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Many other conditions

The Treatment Procedure

  • Applied Kinesiology exam to determine where the skull is locked up and the head position needed at the time of the adjustment, as well as the nasal passage that the balloon will need be inserted into for treatment.
  • SOT or Sacro-Occipital Technique (allows CSF to flow better)
  • External Cranial Work (also allows CSF to flow better)
  • Balloon assisted cranial adjustment
