Functional Nasal Release
Do you suffer from
Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
Bones in the skull fit snuggly together like the pieces of a puzzle. They remain unfused to allow mobility and breathability and to accommodate swelling in the head associated with inflammation. Direct blows or impact to the head from sports, injuries, falls or even the birthing process can misalign these sutures or cause them to become jammed in place. This can disrupt the flow of cerebral spinal fluid through the sinuses as well as diminish the amount of oxygen coming in through the nasal passage. The result is commonly associated with symptoms listed above. Finally there is an effective and natural solution.
Functional Nasal Release is a simple physical therapy procedure. It is performed using a small balloon or finger cot attached to a specialized blood pressure bulb. The finger cot is gently placed in the nasal passage and slightly inflated. It makes its way into the nasopharynx causing it to widen a bit. Then it is instantly released and removed. This treatment is neither painful nor dangerous, but the results can be significant. Other names for this procedure are Nasal Cranial Release, Cranial Facial Release, and Nasal Specific Technique. It is not to be confused with the surgical Balloon Sinuplasty performed by an ENT.
