CFR (Cranial Facial Release Technique)


This information comes from
Cranial Facial Release or CFR is an advanced endo-nasal cranial technique that has been used quite successfully in the treatment of various neurological and structural disorders. It is a specialized technique that was derived from an earlier form of cranial treatment called Bilateral Nasal Specific (BNS) pioneered by Chiropractor Richard Stober in the 1970’s and 80’s. CFR was originated by Dr. Adam J. Del Torto, DC and is an offshoot of BNS techniques, but 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 performed by inserting tiny balloons in the nose (specifically the naso pharynx) then quickly inflating them to mobilize the cranial bones. It feels very similar to the sensation experienced when one jumps into a swimming pool and gets water up their nose. The whole procedure takes about 2 to 3 seconds, and it consists a series of 4 treatments over a 7-10 day period.
Patients who seek CFR treatment are usually people who have been through the medical gamut and are looking for an alternative non-drug/non-surgical approach to wellness! Most of these people have suffered a great deal, and they are tired of being sick and drug-dependent. CFR has worked where conventional forms of treatment have failed.  While the primary objective of CFR is to open the nasal passages and mobilize the cranial bones to improve breathing, some patient may also experience decrease symptoms of other disorders.
