Dr. Dean Howell received his doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in 1982. His first degree was in mathematics, and he brought a mathematical perspective to medicine that created the quest for simplicity and empirical certainty in healing. Having taken very seriously the Hippocratic oath--which included the injunction to treat the cause rather than the symptoms of disease--Dr. Howell has striven to discover more and more precise methodologies that lead to permanent and cumulative beneficial results. NeuroCranial Restructuring (NCR), which Dr. Howell has been developing for over 18 years, is a powerful and dynamic new approach to physical medicine with broad application. Its effectiveness continues to increase as he incorporates more cutting edge energetic techniques into its operation.
Dr. Howell lives on 200 beautiful wilderness acres in north central Washington State with his wife Trisha and son Derek. When he's not performing NCR and developing it further, Dr. Howell hikes, snowshoes, cooks and plays golf avidly. He is also a voracious reader and a highly creative sounding board for his wife's writing as well as a devoted father.
Dr. Howell, the developer of NeuroCranial Restructuring™, is a naturopathic physician. He is married to Trisha Howell, a writer and founder/publisher of Howell Canyon Press. He has a daughter, Selena, a Bastyr University naturopathic medical student and three sons---Nathan, a custom software designer for Microsoft, Derek, the manager of VIBE of Bellevue, Brandon, a student at Marysville-Pilchuck High School and one grandson, Xander, an elementary school student.

It is powerful, relatively straight forward to apply and very beneficial. I look forward to mastering this technique, as I share it with many people over course of my life."

" Found Dean's patience & general attitude worked well for me personally and I found Derek helpful with questions about bodywork and his sense of humour livened things up. "

" Things with me and NCR are going really well. I have been doing a series every two weeks since getting certified, typically seeing between 2 and 5 clients. At the end of this month I am traveling up to NH to work with some clients one of my friends that I graduated with lined up for me. So things are great and I am getting excellent results. I am also working on a web page which I will send to you as soon as it is up and running. I could not be more thrilled with NCR and the results I am getting. It is quite a rush. I've prevented surgery, gotten people off of meds and saved them a ton of money in dental work and sinus/nasal septum/sleep apnea surgeries. "
