Facial Pain, Migraine Headaches
Dr. Hillary's Condition:
Due to head mal-adjustment as "forceps baby", several car accidents and slowly degenerating misalignments, my headaches and head pressure grew unbearable - even with chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, massage and daily pain medication.
My head pressure was relieved after just three sessions with my mentor - Dr. Dean Howell, ND. Since then and through multiple treatments, my face has completely changed to a more attractive and usable symmetry, my posture is better, and I no longer require expensive orthotics. Oh - did I mention that I became a Naturopathic Doctor because of NCR? :)
In Dr. Hillary's Words:
I suffered with head pressure for most of my life. I was a forceps baby, my teeth grew in crooked with an over/under bite, and after a few car accidents here and there, and my head pressure became a daily challenge. As a child, doctors would tell my mother my headaches were just part of growing, or even "imagined".As I became an adult, each week I would need chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture treatments, massage, and daily pain medications to keep my head pressure at bay. (Sound familiar?) The first picture is of me at age 17, 6 years before I found NCR. Note I don't smile, my teeth were not straight.
In 1996 I met Dr Dean Howell ND while I was a massage therapist. I consulted with him and decided that I needed NCR. After my very first treatment I was free of head pressure for the first night in many years. After finishing my four-day session, I knew that NCR was going to change my life. My head pressure was fully relieved after 3 sessions, and shortly there after I went to work with Dr Howell as his first personal assistant.
From 1997-2002 I worked on thousands of patients with Dr Howell, performing the specialized pre-treatment massage that Dr Howell trained me in, and assisted each patient through their treatments.
Through NCR my face has completely changed shape, my cheekbones are higher, my head is wider, my bite is wider allowing more space for my teeth, and my nasal bridge is straighter. I have improved posture and I no longer have to wear expensive orthotics in my shoes to support my feet. I did have an upper palette appliance that straightened my upper teeth without braces, thuse allowing the shape of my face to change even more, as you can see in the second picture, which is me just over 20 years older than the first picture.
Today I am a Naturopathic Doctor because of NCR- I have seen it change the lives of thousands of children, adults, families, and communities, giving new hope to many, who, like me, were felt they would never be helped.
I hope I am can help you experience the great benefits that I have!

Facial Pain, Migraine Headaches
Kathy's facial pain, sinus pressure, headaches and tightness of neck and shoulders was so severe that her dentist told her she had temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) and would need oral surgery.
After the first session, Kathy experienced almost complete relief from all of her symptoms and was able to sleep for the first time in months. Continued treatment has completely eliminated her facial pain and pressure, and has greatly increased her overall vitality and health.
In Kathy's Words:
I found Dr. Lampers on the Internet. I was having severe facial pain, pressure and headaches not to mention my neck and shoulders were so tight they felt like bricks. I was told by my dentist that I had TMJ and should have oral surgery. I was thinking there has to be something else. So I started searching the Internet for TMJ, and through some links found Dr. Lampers. I made an appointment.
In the meantime I read everything I could about NCR. I wanted so much for this to work, I was desperate for some relief and didn't want to have surgery or take pain pills. I explained to my mom what I was about to do and asked her to join me through the process as an observer. We both went to orientation and listened as Dr Lampers explained everything. What she said all made complete sense.
My experience with Dr Lampers and NCR has been far better than I ever expected. Within the first session my symptoms were almost gone. The pain and pressure in my head was gone and my neck and shoulders loosened up. I slept for the first time in months.
I have had 3 sessions with Dr Lamers in the last 2 years, and I feel great! I no longer have pain and pressure in my face, I rarely have a headache, the TMJ is practically gone, and I sleep great. I want to Thank you!!!! Dr. Lampers, your NCR process has changed my life for the better. I truly don't know where I would be if I had not have found you.
Facial Pain, Migraine Headaches
Kimberly came into treatment suffering from severe chronic head pain and compression that had caused her blinding migraine headaches for years.
Kimberly's first treatment resulted in a profound shift in her vitality - releasing her from decades of sudden migraine pain. Subsequent treatments have completely eliminated her symptoms.
In Kimberly's Words:
I sat in her treatment room averting my eyes from the white grid on the wall with uniform black squares wreaking havoc on my eyes. Dr. Hillary stated she could not describe for me what I would experience for everyone was different. For the same reason, she could not promise release from the stabbing pain of migraines that had plagued me for the past quarter century. Migraines that crippled me with pain up to six-days a week - sent me home from work when a cookie offered at lunch-break unexpectedly contained artificial sweetener and blind-sided me with pain 20-minutes later; kept me in bed on Saturday mornings when my family went out to play; caused me to medicate and then grin-and-bear-it through a dinner date to not miss a rare opportunity to be alone with my spouse.
Medical doctors had offered all the pain relief medications at their disposal and thereby greatly reduced the intensity and duration. Chiropractors had worked for years to alleviate the chronic tension in my neck and spine and decrease frequency. An Acupuncture Doctor worked diligently without notable improvement. A Naturopath ran tests and discovered hormonal imbalances which, when treated, also reduced frequency to a couple of episodes a week that I was successfully medicating away to continue daily functioning. But the source of the stabbing pain behind my right eye continued to elude everyone.
During orientation, the previous week, Hillary showed me a picture of the bone in the center of my skull she would be adjusting. I stopped her as I spotted, what appeared to me to be, the back of my eye-socket and asked, "Is it possible you will somehow relieve the pressure HERE with what you are proposing?" She watched me recoil from the sliver of sunlight coming through the window and change seats before she reiterated that she could make no promises but that would be the hope.
That glimmer of hope is what I coupled with my desperation and carried into that first appointment for what proved to be an adjustment of a lifetime. A whole load of courage is what I added for the following three days to submit myself to trust this peaceful, compassionate and competent woman to continue the work we had started together.
I spent nearly two-days in shock after my first treatment where my skull broke loose from decades of tension. Somehow this tiny lady had used a little balloon to generate the pressure of what, to me, felt like the cleat of a 250-pound soccer player slowly grinding his heal into the side of my face until my skull gave way. Yet, in that moment, excruciating as it was, I knew I was profoundly changed - for the light no longer caused me to cringe. The exposed bulb in the simplest of lamps no longer held the power of Kryptonite to bring me to my knees in fear of another migraine.
The glimmer of hope grew to the beginnings of a dream for what the second forty-years of my life might look like without chronic pain. Thank you, Hillary, for sharing your gift of healing with me.
