NeuroCranial Restructuring Improves Down Syndrome
Dear Dr. Howell,
As all parents of Down’s Syndrome (DS) children know, at birth our babies do not look dramatically different from “well” newborns. But as the months and years go by, they develop very slowly and begin to resemble each other more than their parents. Speech, gross and fine motor skills tend to be especially slow to develop.
My DS daughter April, now eight years old, was clearly headed down that road, despite my doing many therapies, programs and natural healing modalities with her. High functioning relative to other DS children, she still had the facial characteristics, droopy posture and slurred speech typical of our kids.
For the past year and a half, however, things have shifted on every level in April as she is blessed to receive NeuroCranial Restructuring treatments from Dr. Dean Howell every three months. April’s posture has straightened to near perfect and as a result she excels in her gymnastics practice and skis downhill solo with control from the top of the mountain!
Oh, there have been and continue to be so many desirable changes, both dramatic and subtly cumulative, I don’t know where to begin. April’s speech is now extraordinarily clear, her thought processes complex. Her natural sense of whimsy can now shine. At last we get to hear her ideas and feelings as she can truly carry on complete conversations.
Her lower jaw no longer projects excessively forward. You might not even recognize her as a Down’s Syndrome person. She no longer has the flat face characteristic of DS people. As the bridge of her nose has come out and we see cheekbones emerge, her eyes have rounded and relaxed into a more natural place. Her lower jaw no longer projects excessively forward. You might not even recognize her as a Down’s Syndrome person.
NC® will definitely continue to be part of April’s life adventure for years to come.
Thank you, Dr. Dean Howell (and Hillary), for helping to awaken my daughter to her true self.
