Nasal Release Therapy
The sphenoid is one of the deepest and largest bones of the skull. It's butterfly shaped bone that sits behind the nose with the upper edge of the 'butterfly wings' extending to the temples and the lower 'legs' of the bone forming the back of the mouth and jaw. It's the only bone of the skull that connects with every other bone. Therefore, the position of the sphenoid affects the alignment of the entire skull.
Nasal Release Therapy uses small balloon apparatus to mobilize and adjust the sutures of the skull, particularly the sphenoid back into alignment. This ultimately relieves the forces that have gone into the skull by releasing any impactions in the cranial sutures. Adjusting these bones of the skull re-establishes the flow of cerebral spinal fluid to the brain and spinal column.

- Caution should be taken with patients who might have "bleeding disorders" or taking anticoagulant medications. This population may not be good candidates for this procedure.
- Patients with prior nasal or facial bone surgery, especially with modification of the turbinates are not good candidates for nasal specific because the integrity of the structures is unpredictable.
- There has been at least one case reported where an asthma attack was initiated by the nasal specific procedure. It is suggested therefore as a precaution; the clinician should be assured that the patients with a history of asthma have their inhaler with them when they are going to undergo this therapy.
- The therapist performs an extensive medical history check before attemtping this procedure and will refrain from it if any contraindications are present.
