Neuro Cranial Integration (NCi) Technique
Chiropractic Care Tulsa Oklahoma
Neuro Cranial Integration (NCi) is a health enhancing approach and, although it is frequently directed to addressing symptoms, its goal at all times is to improve the basics of function (physiology). The procedure utilizes the pressure changes within the head (cranium) to affect a very specific objective in the alignment of the cranial bones.
The skull is made up of 22 interlocking bones which are in a constant involuntary rhythmic motion. This motion coincides with the pumping of cerebrospinal fluid around the skull and up and down the spinal canal. This fluid bathes and nourishes the nerves. One of the most critical aspects of the cranial structure is the dura mater, a thin and strong lining that attaches to the inner surface of the skull. It then exits the skull and physically anchors into the upper neck region and to the sacrum. If something were to cause a pull or contraction of the dura in or near its attachment points in the skull, this would also be transmitted to the neck and low back regions. By relaxing the tension in the dura where it attaches to the neck and sacrum, the spine realigns itself.
NCi has a focus on stress relief and stress recovery. In NCi we recognize that the power that made the body also has the power to heal the body once any internal interferences to our own healing ability are removed. Balance is the key and NCi is a hands on process which helps us to balance the left and right sides of the brain which results in mental, emotional, physical and spiritual integration and balance. Research has shown that the moment the correction is given the brain “resets”, much like a computer rebooting, and weak muscles get strong, tense muscles relax and structural balance is regained. Your brain instantly shifts to the alpha state where healing, thinking, metabolism, relaxation and sleep are all profoundly and positively affected.
NCi offers a proven, hands on way to come out and stay out of an inappropriate stress state. When this happens positive brain-wave activity becomes more apparent, the right and left hemispheres of the brain synchronize; and there is better nerve and energy conductivity, which includes:
• better body movement
• improvement in muscle tone; less tension
• improved immune function
• better coordination; improved strength
• better circulation; less discomfort
• greater well-being, happiness and inner peace
NCi increases your body’s ability to respond, handle, and overcome daily negative stress, thereby speeding up healing and helping to avoid future illness. Since each person is individual, stress masks itself in different symptoms. The symptoms may look like headaches, fatigue, aches and pains, lack of focus, depression, internal system imbalances, etc. It is important to remember that we do not focus on your symptoms, but rather help you to stay balanced so that self healing and self regulation can be optimized.
