The NUCCA procedure is both an extremely precise and gentle procedure. A gentle touch and controlled contact on the first vertebra in the neck is designed to restore balance to the spine. Even though the primary focus is the neck, the effect of the correction influences the whole spine and body systems.
This is because NUCCA influences the brain stem and central nervous system. When the spine is subjected to stress it can become misaligned beginning at the atlas vertebra.
The spine will then compensate for the misalignment of the head and neck by the rest of the spine moving and twisting out of their normal positions.
