Hey, this is Dr. Doreste with the Cranial Release Technique®, back with a new video. Trying out some new equipment, so fingers crossed all goes well. I recently completed a YouTube short where I discussed how cranial distortion, one side of the brain being overactive, causes distortion throughout the body, which can lead to a carrying of more weight on one side versus the other. So, for people that have hip problems, knee problems, ankle problems, foot problems, more so on one side compared to the other, why is that? I mean, we use the feet, and we use the legs. We walk for every one step on the left, we do one step on the right. So, there’s got to be something else at play. I mean, unless it’s a major trauma that you’ve had to that one knee or hip or ankle.

So, let’s think about this for a moment. The cranium is distorted in most people. That cranial distortion, osseous bony cranial distortion of the 22 cranial bones, will lead to a spinal distortion. The shoulders will be out of alignment, the pelvis will be out of alignment, and as I mentioned in the YouTube short that I just did the other day, an old trick that chiropractors would do, we would take two bathroom scales, put them together, have the patient stand one foot on the left scale, one foot on the right scale, and if you measure the amount of weight, it should be within zero to three pounds. So, if I’m on the two bathroom scales, I should be 115 on the left and 115 on the right, but you’re probably going to see something if it’s a claim that if it’s more than five pounds difference from one side to the other, that is significant. Which means one leg is carrying much more weight than the other, and you multiply that by how many steps you do in a day, over a week, over a month, over a year, two years, five years, ten years, and you could see how one extremity would wear out faster than the other, and you’d have more symptoms, probably on that one side.

So, in addition to going and getting the ankle looked at, the knee looked at, the hip looked at, you probably never thought to get the head looked at. And so, with cranial release, what we’ll do is we’ll balance the cranium with this one-minute technique. We’ll open and align all the cranial bones, which will help to align the spine. We’ll balance the brain hemispheres from right to left, from an electrical standpoint. We’ll relax the covering of the brain and the spinal cord. That’s called the dura matter. In addition to that, as each pair of nerves is 31 pairs of nerves, as they branch out from the spinal cord, they’re covered in an outer covering kind of like the black rubber on a cable or wire. That is the dura, which is now called the fascia, the superficial fascia. It’s called the epineurium, which then, the technical term is epineurium, which then blends in and becomes the deep and superficial fascia.

In addition to that, we’ll balance the autonomic nervous system, the sympathetic, and the parasympathetic. The sympathetic is the fight-or-flight response, while the parasympathetic is more about rest, relaxation, and healing phase of the nervous system. And you need both when you drive a car. Sometimes you need the acceleration, sometimes you need the brake, and you do those in balance so you can drive from here to the supermarket and back home.

The beauty of the Cranial Release Technique® is that in this one-minute technique, we’re balancing all the structure and including those fascial components, the inner membranes that sort of hold things together and connect things throughout the body. And so, I’ve had many patients that have come in with foot problems, ankle problems, heel problems, knee problems, leg problems, hip problems, and I would never touch the extremity. I would start with the cranial release to see what needed to be done after that. And I can tell you, after so many years of doing this, the majority of patients, after you apply the Cranial Release Technique®, that leg is much better without me even touching the leg because I didn’t touch it directly. By my hands down on the joints, I touched it through the cranium, through aligning the body.

And then, if you take those people, so we’re aligning the osseous structure and the fascial components and the nervous system, then you take those people, put them back on the scales, and now they’re back within a pound or two or zero. So, you changed how they’re functioning in gravity. It really is an incredible concept, and someone just commented to me that they would never make that connection between the cranium and a leg issue, cranium and a knee issue, the cranium and an ankle issue, the cranium and the hip issue. So, food for thought.

Hopefully, there’s someone in your area so that you can get on the table to experience cranial release. And if you’re a practitioner out there and this has sparked some interest to say, “Well, wait a minute, maybe there is a cranial component to that knee problem, or maybe there is a cranial component to that digestive issue, or maybe there is a cranial component to that hormonal imbalance, or maybe there is a cranial component to that TMJ dysfunction,” and you want to learn more about how do you as a practitioner learn this work, back at the website cranialrelease.com, there is a button called Online Training Program. You can click on that and take a look at the videos there and see if this is right for you. If it’s right, welcome aboard. If it’s not, well, we’re still friends. See you down the road.

This is Dr. Doreste with the Cranial Release Technique®. Adios, my friends. Don’t forget the cranium when the people come in with the knee, hip, and leg, and you can do that trick. Take two bathroom scales, put them together, have the patient put one foot on one, one on the other. Look at the difference in weight. It should be within zero to three pounds. If it’s more than that, they’re carrying more weight abnormally on one extremity as opposed to the other.

Thanks so much for watching. Have a great day. Try my remote control, make sure this is working. Adios, my friends. Ciao for now.
