Dr. Dean Howell, NC, Is the Creator Of NeuroCranial Restructuring (NCR)

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.
