“My mission is to provide you with the highest quality care
using the best science and art possible.”

How FCR was Born.

For the last 17 years I have been utilizing cranial therapy in my clinic since my first introduction to the use of endonasal balloons and my own miracle. I was on a CPAP machine for my sleep apnea. I was diagnosed a few years prior and found it difficult to breath through my nose since an injury to my face/nose in 1989. I never imagined that this alteration in the structure of my face could be reversed with out painful surgery. It was literally less than a 5 minute procedure and my breathing was more open than I can ever remember. This wasn’t the only benefit I felt, I also felt calm and centered, my vision was sharper and I started sleeping more soundly than before and my chronic neck pain has disappeared!

My mission was to learn as much as I could about the science behind this art of cranial adjusting as well as all the different methods from medical, naturopathic, osteopathic and chiropractic professions. I found many “so called experts” used various techniques they felt were the only way, but didn’t find any instructors who could really explain why what they did was working, that I could buy into. I knew the answer would be in neurology. I also knew that if I could have a deeper understanding of the function of the skull I could have better clinical outcomes. That brought me to my current pursuit of a Fellowship in Neurology through the Carrick Institute of Neurological Sciences.  It was here that many of my questions where answered.

This has brought me to where I am now and I continue to explore both endo-nasal balloon cranial adjusting along with Functional Neurology. I worked with a Ph.D. in my office for 2 years in 2010/11 and we performed clinical studies to refine and demonstrate all the ways that FCR can improve brain function and health. I have developed  a system of treatment that I now teach to Medical and Chiropractic physicians internationally.

Yours in Health,
