Upcoming Regional Workshops

The Gregory Standard 2.0

We’re excited to announce a NUCCA Regional Workshop with Dr. Marshall Dickholtz, Jr. The course aims to help you achieve exponential growth in the NUCCA technique, becoming more proficient in your natural self-expression. It is not just about acquiring more knowledge, but about experiencing a breakthrough in your approach to reducing the ASC and taking effective actions within that new realm.

The intention of this three-day course:

  • To have a breakthrough in your ability to more effectively correct the atlas subluxation complex.
  • To develop an effective triceps pull, and a more thorough understanding of the mechanics of the subluxation while developing yourself on a path of mastery in the NUCCA work. 
  • Sports psychologist and athletes agree that performance is approximately 90% mental. This course will address the physical, psychological and ontological components designed to create a foundation of ongoing development as an outcome of one’s natural self-expression. 
  • To create a natural pathway to optimal performance toward the doctor’s own development, discovery and understanding of the ASC, its complexity and correction.

Space for this workshop is limited to 16 doctors, so get registered today!

Thursday, February 1 – Saturday, February 3, 2024

Agenda (subject to change):

  • Thursday, February 1: 9:00am – 9:00pm. Breaks will be offered for lunch and dinner.
  • Friday, February 2: 9:00am -5:00pm. Lunch at the hotel will be provided. Dinner at Buffalo Chip Saloon in Cave Creek, AZ along with dancing and the rodeo with bull riding (please note that it is not recommended to ride the bulls.)

NUCCA Regional Workshops

If you are interested in holding a NUCCA Regional Workshop near you, please click the button below to fill out the online request form. If you have any questions, please reach out to the NUCCA Office at 952-564-3056 or email

Please note: Workshops should take place during the summer or winter months to not interfere with conference attendance. (Summer: June, July, August / Winter: December, January, February)

In consultation with the Education Committee, Dr. Glen Cripe, Dr. Tym Flory, and Dr. Jeff Scholten met regularly in 2018 to conceptualize an enhancement to the methods by which NUCCA doctors are trained.

Regular conference attendance is still crucial, however, the development of kinesthetic, clinical, and research excellence requires the availability of more frequent mentorship opportunities. To this end, we will begin to test the desire of our membership for NUCCA Approved Regional Workshops over the next few years. The first beta version of these workshops occurred in February 2019 in Newport Beach, facilitated by Dr. Glen Cripe. More workshops will be offered regionally in the Winter of 2020. Tentative plans exist for Atlanta, Seattle, LA, Orange County and San Francisco.

If you are a NUCCA Credentialed Instructor, a Diplomate in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures (NUCCA), or have special post graduate expertise and have an interest in understanding more about how you can get involved and provide NUCCA Approved Regional Workshops, please contact Dr. Jeff Scholten, Dr. Tym Flory or NUCCA.
