Cranial Facial Release Technique

An advanced endo-nasal “balloon assisted” cranial adjusting technique

  • What is cranial facial release?
    Cranial facial release (CFR) is an advanced endo-nasal cranial adjusting technique that has been used quite successfully in the treatment of various neurological and structural disorders.
  • It is important to realize that the skull is NOT one solid bone. It is made up of 22 individual bones that actually move every time you breathe, or at least they’re supposed to. The objective of CFR is to mobilize the bones in the face and cranium and to open the breathing passageways with the purpose of mobilizing the cranial bones and facilitating normal cranial function. CFR is performed by inserting a tiny balloon in the nose (nasopharynx) then quickly inflating them to mobilize the bones of the face and cranium. It feels very similar to the sensation experienced when jumping into a swimming pool and having water shoot up your nose. However, the whole procedure takes about 2 to 3 seconds, and consists of a series of about 4 treatments over a 7-10 day span.
  • Most people who come in for CFR are often last resort patients who have tried everything else first. CFR often succeeds where other forms of conventional treatment have failed. here.

Important Things to Note

There are very few doctors who are certified in CFR Technique. CFR doctors are required to undergo extensive post graduate training to become qualified in this specialized procedure.
It is important to note that CFR is not directed at the treatment of any one specific disease or disorder. Its primary objective is to mobilize the cranial bones, unlock cranial fixations, open breathing passageways, facilitate cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) flow, increase vascular flow to the cranium and venous drainage from the cranium, and optimize brain function. This often improves symptoms related to various structural and neurological disorders.
