Are you insane?” – were the first words that came to mind when I was first introduced to this unique and bazaar technique at a Parker Seminar fresh out of school back in 1984. But of course, I knew everything back then and the thought of inserting a balloon into the nasal cavity and inflating it to adjust the cranium was just too inconceivable to me. I literally got up and walked out of the seminar, and the instructor made sure that everyone noticed as he aimed his laser pointer in the middle of my back and proclaimed, “There goes a guy who just doesn’t get it!” 


Little did I know that I was walking out on the godfather of Cranial Ballooning, Dr. Richard Stober, the founder of BNS (Bilateral Nasal Specific) technique.
