Cranial Facial Release Technique
Cranial Facial Release (CFR) is an advanced endo-nasal cranial technique that has been successfully used for the treatment of various neurological and structural disorders. A specialized technique derived from an earlier form of cranial treatment called Bilateral Nasal Specific (BNS) developed by the osteopaths in the early 1900's. CFR technique was developed and refined by Dr. Adam J. Del Torto, DC. Dr. Rick has been personally trained by Dr. Del Torto. The CFR Technique incorporates some of the Bilateral Nasal Specific (BNS) and Nasal Cranial Release (NCR) techniques, but it is much more specific and less invasive. The objective of CFR technique is to induce mobility in the cranial system - specifically the sphenoid bone - with the purpose of facilitating normal cranial respiratory function. The technique is mainly performed by inserting tiny balloons in the nose (specifically the nasopharynx) then quickly inflating them to mobilize the cranial bones. The whole procedure is very quick approximately a few seconds and it consists a series of 4-5 treatments over 7- 10 days.
