Cranial Release Technique in Woodstock, GA

Cranial Release Technique (CRT) is a natural, hands-on approach to releasing the body’s inborn capacity to heal and regenerate itself. CRT takes only minutes, yet it profoundly affects overall health and well-being.

Please don’t confuse CRT with the Nasal Specific Technique or Nasal Cranial Release, both of which insert balloons into your nose.  The Cranial Release Technique allows for proper movement of the 22 moveable bones of the cranium by focusing on the fulcrum of all cranial movement, the spheno-basilar junction, and does so without the use of any balloons.

Cranial Release Technique restores proper function to the nervous system and proper balance to body structure. Thus, it positively affects conditions ranging from aches and pains to overall health and wellness.

CRT makes a wonderful addition to anyone’s health care regimen, and in our office, is used to “lock in” any work done previously on your body and nervous system. This combination has proven extremely powerful, allowing for the best results possible.

How Our Chiropractic Care Plan Works

Identifying The Cause

We listen to you, and more importantly, we hear you. We take this information, along with utilizing two state-of-the-art computerized technologies, to determine what is going on in your body and how this affects your health. We then devise a personalized plan to help you reach your goals.

Specific Chiropractic Care

Based on what we find in your computerized exam, we now know exactly how to adjust you. At each visit, we determine where to adjust you based on which zone of your brain is imbalanced on that visit. Adjustments are performed with the best instruments in the industry so that they are precise, extremely gentle, and tailored to your body’s needs.

Accelerate Your Healing

Research has shown that your brain is most open to change for 20 minutes after a chiropractic adjustment. That being so, why would we immediately send you out into the world that put you in the condition you came in with? We don’t! We maximize that period after your adjustment with our groundbreaking Transformation Stations, which accelerate healing and contribute to permanent positive changes and habits.

What is Cranial-Based Healthcare?

About 100 years ago, an American physician, Dr. William G. Sutherland, discovered that the 22 bones of the head move. Dr. Sutherland’s subsequent research revealed that:

  1. The bones of the head (cranium) move in a rhythmic pattern throughout life.
  2. This movement of the bones of the head is responsible for the proper function of the nervous system and optimum health.
  3. When this movement is disturbed by a distorted skull, overall health and well-being suffer, and pain or illness results.
  4. Hands-on methods can restore proper movement of the cranial bones, and a return to good health follows.

Modern-day researchers using sophisticated and very sensitive instruments have now proven that this movement of the cranial bones indeed exists. Other studies have shown that the position of the bones can be changed using hands-on techniques.

Since its inception in the 1900s, many different schools of cranial techniques developed. These methods all had several things in common:

  • The bones of the skull were corrected one at a time, individually.
  • The work could be very time-consuming, many times with sessions lasting 45 minutes or more.
  • Some schools treated the skull as a separate part of the body with no mention of the cranium’s effect on overall body physiology.

How is Cranial Release Technique different?

Cranial Release Technique arose out of a new school of thought. CRT considers the cranium and the many tissues affected by the cranium and nervous system in our corrective approach. The CRT approach differs in that:

  1. The entire skull is “released” or restored to normal function with one process.
  2. This “release” of the bones of the skull initiates a release of all of the tissues and structures associated with it, including:
    a. The spine and pelvis
    b. The extremities- shoulders, hips, knees, etc
    c. The Dura Mater – the protective covering over the brain and spinal cord
    d. The Fascia – a connective tissue envelope running head to toe, front to back, side to side that surrounds every organ, muscle, and vessel in the body
  3. The cerebrospinal fluid flow – vital to the health and proper function of the nervous system.
  4. The “Global Release” provided by the Cranial Release Technique has far-reaching positive effects on overall body function due to the extent of tissues and structures involved.
  5. The targeted CRT approach can accomplish this overall “release” of cranial and body structure in just minutes.

CRT helps many people with a variety of health problems. As the body returns to optimum function, true healing and repair begins. Even chronic problems often respond well to the CRT approach after more conventional methods have failed.

Cranial Release Technique practitioners consider themselves facilitators of “releasing” the body’s inborn capacity to heal and be well. Once you achieve this goal, you are in the best position possible for relief and healing.

I’ve had a great experience! I’m feeling better and better…more energy, less pain, better sleep…the best anti-aging in town.

I cannot recommend Dr. John enough! I have always gone to traditional chiropractors who took care of a problem for the day, but never healed the issue. I would wake up with headaches, hip pain from a horse injury (that I was told by a chiropractor would always be there no matter what), and knee pain while doing certain exercises. Since going to Center for Life Enhancement, I no longer have any pain or discomfort. It’s mind boggling because Dr. John uses gentle techniques to adjust verses the snap crackle and pop of a traditional chiropractic experience. I can go a week between visits and I don’t experience the laps backwards I felt after adjustments before. Life changing.

Dr John is a true healer. He totally understands how the body and mind work together. Dr John is warm, patient, and knowledgeable. I always feel great after an adjustment in all aspects, emotionally and physically. Do yourself a favor and go see Dr John, he will help you heal yourself.

I saw Dr. John while I was pregnant and after (until he moved, sadly!!). I went to him because I had back issues & was afraid of experiencing intense back labor as I had with my first son. His treatments made me feel safe & taken care of. I always left feeling a lot of mobility in my spine. The pregnancy was causing me a lot of back pain but after I started seeing him the pain went away. I was really happy to see the improvement during labor as well. I also took my 8 year old to him. My 8 year old is autistic and has adhd. Dr. John developed a beautiful relationship with my son & my son’s teacher even commented on how my son’s focus had improved. I noticed the same. We miss Dr. John!

Talk about wow! The doctor has such a huge heart, but has a wonderful way of adjusting. I never did well with the offices where everyone gets the same adjustments. I really love that he personalizes his care to the person in front of him. Give him a try, you won’t regret it!

Dr. D’Ambrosio is amazing! After just six visits, my back isn’t hurting any more, which is wonderful and the original reason for my visit, but I’ve seen so many other positive side effects! I have MUCH more energy, I’m sleeping better at night, I’ve lost a couple of pounds, and my blood pressure has even gone from 158/90 to 112/63, a decrease I believe is due to the decreased stress I feel from the treatments! I’ve seen other chiropractors in the past and have been satisfied with the adjustments I’ve received, but this is really so much more—a different approach to determining how to truly align the body based on research, and the results are incredible! I highly recommend Dr. D’Ambrosio and his professional, caring staff!

Natural Stress Relief

One of the greatest aspects of the Cranial Release program is its ability to restore and enhance wellness. We live in stressful times. Many articles have appeared in major publications over the past years detailing the harmful effects of the stress of modern-day life and today’s fast-paced lifestyles.

This chronic stress presents a host of challenges to the body’s normal function. The nervous system goes into overdrive, and the body produces harmful chemicals in response to the stress. Over time, this “stress state” can be very damaging, not only to physical but to mental health as well.

Initial investigation into Cranial Release Technique and its effect on Heart Rate Variability (medically recognized as an indicator of stress) have indicated that CRT positively impacts reversing this abnormal “stress state”. This investigation reflects the positive effects often reported by CRT patients. Many people report feeling much more “relaxed and at ease” following a CRT session. A sense of “balance and more peace” is noticed throughout the day.

At any given time, your body is either in a mode of protection and survival or healing and regeneration. CRT can help facilitate a return to healing, repair, and regeneration, making it an ideal part of your overall wellness program.
