Nasal Release Technique is a powerful structural technique that adjusts the bones of the skull. It was developed by Dr. J. R. Stober. The procedure uses a small finger cot affixed to an inflatable device which is inserted into the nasal passages. The balloon inflation presses outward against the bones lining the breathing passages and adjusts the sutures of the skull, particularly the sphenoid. This ultimately relieves the forces that have gone into the skull by releasing any impactions in the cranial sutures.
One of the confusions of this therapy are the multitude of names for it—Endonasal Technique, Cranial Facial Release, Nasal Cranial Release, Bilateral Nasal Specific Technique, Functional Cranial Release, and Neurocranial Restructuring Nasal Specific Technique. These have all been used to describe the procedure.
We have found Nasal Release Technique to be particularly helpful to individuals experiencing Post-concussion syndrome, headaches, orofacial/craniofacial pain, TMJ dysfunction, difficulty breathing through their nose, sleep disturbances, and many other conditions.
