The brain is the master regulator of every organ and hormone in the body. Gray’s Anatomy tells us the brain and nervous system control and coordinate all the functions of the body and relate it to its environment.
But until now, there has been no way to improve its functioning on a deep level.
The simple technique of Neuro Cranial Integration has a direct effect on the Dura (which covers, protects and nourishes the brain, spinal cord and nerves). It allows the left and right brain hemispheres to profoundly re-balance and reintegrate, improving the functioning of the central nervous system automatically. Often, lost functions are restored and health is improved.
This is because 80 percent of the nerves in your body originate in the base of the brain. These nerves extend down the spine and to all your organs. Your nervous system sends critical signals to your organs and back again to your brain. If this function is compromised, so is your health.
Very often the problem is not in the nerves themselves, but in the dura (the sheath that covers the nerves). NCi releases stuck areas and fixations in the dura, which restores optimal signal transfer and function to your nerves and brain. With signal transfer and optimal functioning running smoothly again, the body is able to restore health and balance to it structural/physical, mental and emotional aspects.
What does this have to do with back pain?
We now know that spinal alignment starts at the top – it follows the alignment of the cranial bones. When the bones of the skull are misaligned, jammed together, or distorted in any way, it causes an uneven pull on the dura mater. This results in distortions or twisting of the spine (aka Subluxations). These subluxations tend to cause various forms of back pain and interfere with normal nervous system flow and movement, such as walking, sitting, bending.
This is why ordinary chiropractic adjustments often don’t last. You may feel great for the day, or even a few days, but the back goes out again all too soon. When the problem is corrected at the source (the cranium), the back isn’t pulled or twisted out of place anymore.
What does this have to do with chronic health conditions?
When pressure is taken off the brain, it can do its job more efficiently and allow the body to function at a higher level.
While specific conditions, diseases or symptoms are not treated, the body’s top mastermind organ, the brain, is. This affects everything connected to it.
NCi aligns the cranial bones and brain hemispheres, taking tension off the nervous system, releasing cranial, fascial and muscle tissue fixations, and returning proper cerebrospinal fluid flow throughout the spine and entire body.
It reaches deep into the cranium and the muscles, dura mater and tissue behind it. And the brain appreciates the profound release and balancing effect. This often sets off a cascade of stimulating effects, such as a healing rush of blood, oxygen, cerebrospinal fluid and neurological activity… the very things that life and health are based on.
One of the hallmarks of chronic disease is the tightening of muscles, breathing, fascia, etc. When the brain and nervous system are relaxed and have what they need, healing can begin in earnest.
