Can gentle be powerful?
If we are structurally sound, we function better. NCI is a specific and gentle technique that aligns the cranial bones, spinal bones, brain and nervous system from the inside out and from the top down. The re-alignment takes tension off the nervous system, releases cranial, fascial and muscle tissue fixations, and returns proper cerebrospinal fluid flow throughout the spine and entire body.
NCI is able to affect the brain, the spine and the entire nervous system in a way that is simply not accessible through spinal manipulation or soft tissue techniques. Although other systems, such as cranial sacral, cranial release and others also affect the cranium, none reach the dura mater that is directly responsible for brain and nervous system balance and health.
The dura mater is a very tough membrane wrapped around the brain. It anchors to the inside of the cranium, the skull. The brain sits in the cranium and exits through an opening to become the spinal cord, where the dura continues to cover it and also fastens to the first two to three vertebra. As the wrapped spinal cord goes down the rest of the spinal column, the dura does not attach to bone anywhere else. However, after the spinal cord ends, the dura mater continues past it and proceeds to the sacrum (the bottom of the spine) where it is anchored once again.
By accessing the dura mater and helping to relieve tension there, NCI allows the left and right brain hemispheres to re-balance and reintegrate in a profound way, automatically improving the functioning of the central nervous system. Also, as tension is released from the dura, the cranial bones, spinal bones, hips, and sacrum begin to realign themselves without the need for direct manipulation. That's powerful.
What is it like?
There is no popping, snapping or twisting with Neuro Cranial Integration. The procedure looks and feels like a big stretch of the neck and upper shoulder muscles. Looks can be deceiving. It is an extremely precise and focused protocol which, though it does not take long to perform (just a couple of minutes), has profound results.
On occasion, adjustments may be made with a hand held adjusting tool or through direct manipulation of a joint. Dr Jones adjusts shoulders, elbows, knees, wrists, and ankles as well as the spine.
Homeopathy uses extremely dilute preparations of substances found in nature that work on an energetic level to support healthy healing. Because Dr Jones' holistic approach to health emphasizes helping your body to heal itself, she combines her adjustments with special homeopathic remedies, each formulated to support a different system in the body. Using a special biosequencing protocol, Dr Jones can determine which homeopathic remedies and chiropractic adjustments your body requires at that time in order to restore proper healing patterns.
These homeopathic remedies do not have side effects or contraindications, do not interact with any conventional medications or herbal preparations you may be taking, do not cause allergic reactions, and they have no taste. They are appropriate help for toddlers and teens as well as adults.
