Nasal Specific involves the subtle shifting of the bony structures that make-up the skull with intention to address a variety of physiological dysfunction. The philosophy behind the practice is that the bones that compose the cranium are subtly mobile, can become shifted out of place and “locked,” disturbing the natural flow of blood, cerebrospinal fluid and nerve-impulses. A small balloon fixed to an air pressure bulb is inserted into one of the six turbinates of the nasal cavity which is then inflated for one to two seconds and released. This process may be conducted several times during a session and in a specific order. Primarily practiced by chiropractors and naturopathic doctors, this technique is promoted as a treatment for a variety of conditions such as chronic headaches, upper respiratory problems, neurological conditions and sensory losses.
