II. General Information About NeuroCranial Restructuring
Can everyone benefit from
Yes. I have never seen a
perfect skull and spine. This means that some amount of
treatment could be useful for everybody, even though they
may have no presenting complaints.
How many treatments do I
need? Why do some people need more treatments than others
I never know how many
treatments any person may need. This is for two reasons:
1) People have
different reasons for seeking therapy--
For instance, some people
seek NCR because of a specific pain or area of trouble in
their bodies. For them, they will stop treatment as soon as
their problem stops. With simple conditions like sinusitis,
as few as four treatments may be stop the sinus problems.
With other conditions, like dystonia or severe spinal
problems, treatment could last sixty treatments without
exhausting the potential for continued improvement.
Other people have larger,
less concrete goals when they receive therapy. If a person
wishes to optimize their bodily functions (as I do) or they
have serious or complicated conditions affecting their
health, treatment can be more of an open-ended situation they
can get treatments for a long time.
Neither of these groups of
people is right or wrong. Either of these plans can be right
for the individual. Some people may even change their
concepts as treatment progresses, and this is fine too. The
nature of NCR treatment, with its essentially permanent
results, allows a person to stop treatment at almost any
time (after the completion of each treatment sequence)
2) Bodies change at
I have never known of two
people who had identical bodies. This is because people have
different genetic forms and different life experiences. By
the time people come to me for treatment, they are unique,
individual structures. In a way, people are like puzzles for
me to untangle. Some puzzles are easier to solve than
others, and some people's bodies change more quickly than
others. I never know how fast a person will change. I never
know how much a person will move from a single treatment. I
never know what tomorrow's treatment will cause or require.
I simply, continually release the obstructions in a person's
structure that prevent him/her from moving towards the ideal
structure the body was designed to have, free of deformity
of life's traumas.
Do a lot of people return
for further treatment?
Yes. Most people find it
necessary to return for more than one treatment sequence to
get the results they desire. For most, four or five
treatment sequences (sixteen or twenty treatments) is a
probable treatment requirement.
How long does each
NCR is scheduled to last
thirty-two minutes each day. This includes the time with Dr.
Howell and the NCR massage.
Why do you schedule
treatments four days in a row?
Is there a limit to how many treatments I should get in a
How long should I wait between sequences?
Experience has taught me
that isolated treatments are less effective than clusters of
treatments. In a manner similar to getting momentum as you
roll down a hill, the skull gains movement speed as
treatments accumulate day after day. This means that results
that cannot be created with isolated treatment become more
predictable with more dense treatment sequences. It is,
however, more intense than getting treatments one at a time.
Generally, after four days of treatment, a person is ready
to rest from the rigors of NCR. With enthusiastic,
NCR-experienced persons, I will permit more than four days
of treatment in a row. My most extreme treatment situation,
so far, has been twenty-four treatments in one month!
After four days of
treatment, a person continues to change for three weeks or
more. This is why I advise a person to wait for a period of
time between treatment sequences. In unusual situations in
which a person needs to have six or more treatments in than
two weeks, I will have them wait for a longer period of time
before they can resume normal, vigorous activities.
For patients who are
interested in changing very rapidly, I recommend that they
average four treatments monthly (one treatment sequence
every four weeks). On the other end, there are some people
who see me for a treatment sequence once annually, and they
continue to show cumulative improvements. For the average
person, having a treatment sequence every two to four months
is a very satisfactory rate of change. At this treatment
frequency, the speed of improvement is slow enough to
prevent the flu and fever reactions that are associated with
Why do you take pictures
before and after each series?
While NCR treatment
accumulates, changes in the appearance of the face and the
position of the spine, head and pelvis are constant. Nobody
can remember that many details about a person's appearance.
I continue to take photos after each treatment sequence to
document these changes.
How long can I keep
getting benefits from each treatment series and from NCR in
Each NCR treatment
sequence is long lasting. Most of the changes are permanent.
However, most people are continually getting traumatized by
their emotional life, the nature of their work/activities
and by the therapies they receive from dentists and others.
For these problems, most people find that they need to get
more NCR sequences occasionally.
Additionally, there is no
reason to stop receiving treatment; nobody is perfect. As
long as the head, spine and pelvis are not perfect, there is
room for more improvement in the structure and the mind with
further treatment. For those people who wish to be their
best, NCR is part of the path
Consider those people who
strive to become more perfect and develop psychic/spiritual
abilities. How can they achieve these things with a brain
that is not performing optimally? Of course it is important
to perfect the lifestyle and the physical and mental
activities of one's life, but without structural
optimization, there will be a limitation on the amount of
I predict that NCR will
become an important facet in the developmental process for
How long after having a
fracture to my nose can I begin treatment? What are the
precautions in treating me?
Without X-ray, many
apparent broken noses are misdiagnosed. Many injuries are
only displacements of the nasal bones. Endonasal balloons
can be used to set a displaced or broken nose. This is often
better than the common orthopedic techniques. With a true
nasal fracture, after the bones are well set, NCR treatment
should be delayed until the fracture is fully healed. In
questionable cases, X-ray should confirm this. Generally six
to twelve weeks is a sufficient waiting period.
What are the youngest and
the oldest ages you can treat with NCR?
Babies need to be born
before NCR can be begun, and the sooner they are treated the
better. There is no upper limit for treatment, as long as
the patient is still alive.
Will I feel okay to go
out to eat after a treatment? What about eating before my
It is best to eat only
lightly before treatment. Sometimes treatment can feel very
powerful, and it is more comfortable not to be full at that
Your appetite should be
just fine soon after treatment. After NCR you usually feel
disoriented for about fifteen minutes. Less than twenty per
cent of the people have long-lasting effects like fever,
cold symptoms or headache after that. Just eat sensibly (as
you always should)!
Do other doctors practice
Who is eligible to be
trained as a NCR therapist? How long does the initial
training take and what does it cost?
A doctor whose licensure
permits endonasal therapy techniques could be accepted into
my training program for NCR. Classes are limited to six
doctors for an intense, one-week course. The class takes
about sixty hours and costs $10,000. The course includes
four treatments from me, a set of before-and-after treatment
photos of each participant, enough equipment to begin
practicing NCR, observation of me performing at least
forty-eight treatments, observation of other doctors
performing forty-nine more treatments and personally
treating two patients for four days while I supervise.
What's involved in my
being a patient for a student doctor during one of the NCR
training courses? How much does it cost to be seen by a
When there is a training
class, there are spaces available for up to twelve patients.
These people are generally inexperienced with NeuroCranial
Restructuring. The current charge for the training course is
$250 for a four-treatment series, including an orientation
talk from the training doctor, four treatments from the
training doctor while I supervise and a set of
before-and-after treatment photographs. Sign up for these
spaces with my front office staff. My ability to accept
training patients is conditional on having doctors sign up
for a training class. Not all the dates set aside for
training can be used for NCR courses. Help me recruit
doctors of good potential for the NCR training course!
