Find Real Health



Going beyond traditional and alternative therapies


What is Advanced Neuro Structural Reintegration?

Advanced Neuro Structural Reintegration (ANSR) is North Shore Brain and Body Connection's protocol that was developed to open up the flow of blood, lymph, and cerebral spinal fluid to the brain and body spaces. By releasing cranial sutures, spinal and fascial restrictions, the body’s natural process of healing is no longer inhibited.


After the flow has been restored we encourage improved communication between the brain and various systems of the body, including unresolved negative emotional encapsulations that have limited the individual to determine his or her state of optimal health.


Here to support your shift
towards a higher level of
healthcare consciousness!

Have you been to multiple healthcare providers with little to no satisfactory results?

Are you a healthcare provider frustrated that your patients are not progressing or resolving as expected?

Does the idea of getting to the root cause of your condition sound appealing?


What Makes Us Different?

Individually, and as a team, we look beyond the traditional vision of dis-ease and traditional methods of treatment. We strive to determine where a functional disconnect exists between the various brain and body systems.



Why Does Our Approach Work?

Each team member has taken their disciplines beyond traditional levels of knowledge. This allows us to look at unresolved health issues from a fresh perspective. Every patient has a unique story requiring a unique solution.
