What is Cranial Facial Release?
Cranial Facial Release, or "CFR" is an advanced endo-nasal cranial technique that has been used quite successfully in the treatment of various neurological and structural disorders. The objective of CFR is to induce mobility in the cranial system (specifically the sphenoid bone) with the purpose of facilitating normal cranial respiratory function. The technique is performed by inserting tiny balloons in the nose (specifically the naso pharynx) then quickly inflating them to mobilize the cranial bones.
CFR Seminars are 3-day intensive seminars covering basic CFR "balloon adjusting" procedures in combination with conventional chiropractic and SOT adjusting techniques. This is a hands on seminar where all participating doctors will experience CFR treatment first hand. Upon successful completion of the 18 hour course, doctors will be listed on the CFR website as qualified CFR practitioners.
Dr. Adam Del Torto specializes in CFR, a balloon assisted cranial adjusting technique, developed from chiropractor Dr. Richard Stober’s original version of BNS technique. He has lectured in several chiropractic forums and was recently featured on the E-Channel and Celebrity News, which attracted international attention.
