Cranial Facial Release

By Miguel Cruz

Mitchell CountyDr. Miguel Cruz Yancey County cruz life center

Cranial Facial Release (CFR) is a balloon-assisted advanced endo-nasal cranial technique that has been used successfully to treat various neurological and structural disorders. The objective is to mobilize the bones in the face and the cranium to open up the breathing passageways and facilitate normal cranial function.

Some of the most common conditions that respond to CFR treatment:

Breathing disorders, sinus conditions, snoring, sleep apnea, migraine headaches, head trauma/post-concussion syndrome, TMJ disorders, fascial paralysis to name just a few.

CFR technique is performed by inserting tiny balloons in the nose and quickly inflating them to mobilize the bones of the face and cranium. It feels very similar to the sensation experienced when jumping into a pool and having water shoot up your nose. The whole procedure takes 2-3 seconds and consists of a series of 4-6 treatments over a 1-2 week period. Most of the people who come for CFR treatment are often last resort patients who have tried everything else first. CFR often succeeds where other forms of conventional treatment have failed.
