Neuro Cranial Integration In Culver City CA

Your brain and nervous system control and regulate every cell of your body. The brain is housed in the Cranium which consists of 8 bones of the skull and 14 bones of the face.
Neuro Cranial Integration relieves pressure on the central nervous system caused by physical, mental/emotional and or chemical stresses. This pain free procedure allows your body to heal and function at a higher level of efficiency by removing stress from the nervous system, and by improving the flow of cerebrospinal fluid from the brain down to the spinal cord and out to the spinal nerves.

NCi allows the doctor to affect the brain, the spine and the entire nervous system in a way that simply is not accessible through other healing techniques. Although other systems of care may affect the cranium, they do not reach the dura mater as precisely and efficiently as NCi. Dura ( aka Dura Mater) is a tough, protective membrane covering the brain and spinal cord. It's also known as the blood brain barrier.

From Gray's Anatomy, 29th edition: "The brain and the nervous system controls and coordinates all the functions of the body and relates the individual to his/her environment."
Neurocranial Integration not only aligns all of the bones of the Cranium- skull and face- but also aligns and removes tension from the Dural membranes-membranes that extend deep inside the brain. This allows the left and right hemispheres) to re-balance and for the brain Ave spinal cord to reintegrate. It is a gentle procedure that can be safely applied to patients of any age- from infants to the elderly.

The Dural membrane attaches to the entire central nervous system on it's inner surface and to bones of the cranium (the skull and face), the spine's top two vertebrae, and then free falls all the way down to the sacrum (tailbone), where it reattaches. Any misalignments of these bony attachments can cause uneven forces on the dura which in turn, cause distortions of the bones of the skull, face, and spine. These distortions are then expressed and mirrored throughout the entire nervous system as well as the rest of the body. Eventually, the tension on the nervous system and structural distortions result in poor health, chronic conditions, as well as neck, back, and other joint pains.

When NCi is administered correctly and the alignment process begins, the nervous system releases stress instantaneously. The patient typically experiences profound relaxation as the tension ( usually with in the CNS itself) melts away. This deep sense of relaxation is an indication that the 2 main divisions of the nervous system-the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic -are balanced A balanced nervous system is the key to all healing-it's what allows true healing to take place. In real healing, health conditions(regardless of type) are reversed and they DO NOT COME BACK!

NCi is holistic -however, many specific conditions may benefit from NCi, such as:

  • Headaches, including migraines
  • Fibromyalgia and the many accompanying symptoms
  • Parkinson's, especially the stiffness associated with this disease
  • Cerebral Palsy patients have reported increased flexibility
  • ADHD and Autism - practitioners have seen dramatic results
  • Mild traumatic brain injuries, Strokes and Multiple Sclerosis
  • Back pain and neck pain and other acute conditions
  • Sports Performance can dramatically improve

Primal Reflex Release Technique

The Primal Reflex Release Technique, or PRRT (pronounced pert), is a manual therapy that eliminates musculoskeletal pain while simultaneously "rebooting" the nervous system. PRRT is gentle in its application but accomplishes in minutes what other modalities, like spinal manipulation and trigger point massage, can take up to weeks or months to achieve.
Primal reflexes are hard wired into our nervous system from birth and remain with us throughout life. They are hardwired into the nervous system for the sole purpose of our survival. When these reflexes become over-stimulated they trigger physical pains throughout the entire body. Examples of these reflexes are: the startle reflex, withdrawal reflex, and the protective joint reflexes. When we experience an injury, shock, or trauma these reflexes get triggered in an attempt to protect us against harm or threats to our safety; however, once triggered, they persist in a state of hyper-readiness long after the triggering event has passed. Activated reflexes not only become a fundamental source of pain but also lead to recurring pain patterns, or "pain loops," which inhibit the body's natural healing mechanisms. So, an activated primal reflex becomes a pain reflex, which results in both a dysfunctional nervous system and a body that's resistant to healing.
Pain reflexes do not to return to normal until they are reset. Through PRRT, we can reset these reflexes painlessly, and in most cases, very rapidly. Unfortunately, there are very few therapists who even look for activated primal reflexes, let alone reset them.
PRRT enables practitioners to both locate and treat activated pain reflexes.
These often overlooked and seldom-treated areas of the nervous system are often the solution for many types of pain, including:
  • Joint stiffness and pain with or without motion
  • Reduced spontaneity of movement
  • Muscle tightness, cramping or tension
The assessment and treatment of activated pain reflexes blends seamlessly with the Zone Chiropractic Technique.
My new patients typically improve in as little as one treatment, and by the fourth visit, most symptoms are gone and they are operating on a whole different level. Getting results in less visits makes my treatment more affordable for most patients. Learn more at


Whelton Myofascial Release

The Whelton Myofascial Referral Technique, developed by Dr. Ryan Whelton, is an effective and simple treatment that instantly relieves pain, dramatically increases the range of motion, decreases muscle spasms, and accelerates healing.

Dr. Whelton has identified how every millimeter of the myofascia connects to over thirty other areas of the body in a new and very precise way. Any one point in the body has a connection to another point when an exact patient positioning and angle of pressure is applied the way Dr. Whelton has mapped it. When one of these referral points (s) is stimulated in an effort to affect an injury or painful area on another part of the body, the results are often remarkable.

There are some similarities to the Chinese acupuncture meridian system, however, this is a revolutionary new system with never before documented connections.


Micro Current Technique

The Alpha-Stim Electrotherapy Device: A Drug-Free Treatment That Works

Safe, effective, and proven relief from pain, anxiety, insomnia, and depression.

Alpha-Stim is an electrotherapy device prescribed by doctors and other healthcare professionals to effectively treat chronic, acute, and post-traumatic pain, and anxiety, insomnia, and depression.


Scar Tissue Release

Scar Tissue Release Therapy is an effective technique that was discovered in Germany decades ago and is used to help the body heal from injuries.

This technique reorganizes scar tissue in order to improve blood and nerve supply. This therapy often reduces both local pain and distant pain (pain that is further from the actual location of the scar tissue itself). It may also help to decrease discomfort from scarring, fascial adhesions, and swelling.
