Cranial Facial Release (CFR) is an advanced endo-nasal “Balloon Assisted” cranial adjusting technique that is used in the treatment of various neurological and structural disorders.

The objective of CFR technique is to unlock cranial fixations and induce mobility in the cranial system – primarily targeting the sphenoid bone, with the purpose of facilitating normal cranial respiratory motion and normal cranial function.  This technique is performed by inserting a tiny balloon in the nose (the naso-pharynx) that is quickly inflated to mobilize the bones of the face and cranium.  The whole process takes about 2 to 3 seconds, and is performed in a series of 4 individual treatments over a 7-10 day period.

Patients may seek treatment for:

breathing disorders, 



sleep apnea, 

deviated septums, 

migraine headaches, 


facial pain (Trigeminal Neuralgia), 

facial paralysis (Bell’s Palsy), 

TMJ disorder, 

Post-Concussion Syndrome, 


& an array of neurological disorders. 

CFR has also been used successfully in the treatment of infants with craniometaphyseal dysplasia (infantile skull deformities), hydrocephalus, and children with learning disorders.
