Should I Get My Head Examined?

Cranial AdjustingAnd the next question you will ask: WHY WOULD I GET MY HEAD EXAMINED?

Because if you are suffering from…

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Memory issues
  • Brain Fog
  • Balance problems
  • Eye strain
  • Dizziness
  • Irritability
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Concussion(s)

…among other conditions.  These can be alleviated through Cranial Adjusting in a great many people.  Your child may exhibit symptoms such as…

  • Facial or head asymmetry
  • Torticollis
  • Repetitive ear infections
  • Colic or gastro-esophageal reflux (GER)
  • Learning disabilities

Your skull is not solid.

It is made up of plates that are connected to each other by sutures that are filled with connective tissue, nerves, and blood vessels.  Although you can’t feel it your skull expands and contracts around 8 times a minute, much like your rib cage when you’re breathing. Those plates can become misaligned through head injuries associated with falls, athletics, and even the birthing process itself (especially if forceps, suction, or vacuum extractors were involved).

We often discount head injuries such as falling on ice, auto accidents, and children’s play accidents if they do not result in loss of consciousness or we don’t have an immediate reaction to the injury.  But any trauma to the head can result in health problems that seem unrelated.

How is a cranial adjustment performed?

Dr. Kathryn Hafer uses her hands in a very gentle manner to apply pressure at specific points and in concise directions to correct the positioning of misaligned plates on the skull.  This action takes pressure off the brain to restore it to normal function.  The pressure Dr. Hafer exerts lasts for about 5-6 seconds on any spot and you may feel wiggles, pulsations, slides and multiple releases or nothing at all.
