Network Spinal Analysis™ has been the subject of academic study, research and publication for its unprecedented effect in wellness and quality of life, adaptability to stress, enhanced life enjoyment, facilitation of constructive lifestyle changes. Also studies are being conducted as to its influence on the advancement and evolution of the nervous system's strategies for self-organization.
Research has shown that Network Care has a direct effect on client self-reported wellness which is twice that expected from healthy lifestyle practices (exercise, risk avoidance, optimal food choices). Network also has a major indirect effect on wellness by promoting healthy life-style choices."
Network Spinal Analysis™ is an evidenced based approach to wellness and body awareness. Gentle precise touch to the spine cues the brain to create new wellness promoting strategies. Two unique healing waves develop with this work. They are associated with spontaneous release of spinal and life tensions, and the use of existing tension as fuel for spinal re-organization and enhanced wellness. Practitioners combine their clinical assessments of spinal refinements with patient’s self assessments of wellness and life changes. Greater self-awareness and conscious awakening of the relationships between the body, mind, emotion, and expression of the human spirit are realized through this popular healing work. NSA is exclusively practiced by Doctors of Chiropractic in relationship to the identification and self regulation of spinal tension and subluxation patterns.
THREE LEVELS OF CARE
LEVEL I BASIC CARE: This is Initial Intensive Care
This is initial intensive care and requires 2-3 visits per week for 2 to 4 months. The adjustive forces are very light and brief.
The length of basic care depends on the amount of past and present stresses on your spine and nervous system, your commitment to regular visits, and your awareness and respect for your own healing process. You may need to return to Basic care at times of trauma or periods of increased stress. Our job in basic care is to assist you to get your spine healthy so nerves, joint, and muscles can release stored energy and tension and become more at ease. This is achieved through increased brain body connection and developing strategies within you to release tension from your bones, muscles and nerves and the reduction of spinal subluxation. A healthier spine is more flexible adaptable and moves more freely. A happy and healthy spine is related to a happy and healthy life.
LEVEL II INTERMEDIATE CARE: This is Intensive Adaptive Care
This is intensive adaptive care. Visits often begin at 2-3 sessions per week and are then reduced to 2 times per week when appropriate. Our job in Intermediate care is to address your chronic spinal distortions and achieve a clear out of these patterns. Your body and nerve system transforms the trapped energy of your chronic distortions into fuel for your healing. During Intermediate care you may experience retracing of physical, chemical and emotional stresses as your nerve system integrates its newer levels of integrity. You will also begin to experience the Somatopsychic Wave, spontaneous muscular motions as your body starts to make its own correction. As you progress through care this strategy refines to smooth coordinated responses. Your body will begin to adapt better to current physical, emotional and chemical stresses.
A nervous system functioning without disturbance, spinal Subluxations, will assist you to reach your full potential.
LEVEL III WELLNESS/ADVANCED CARE: This is Re-education or Wellness Care
In Wellness/Advanced care visit frequency is 2 – 8 times a month depending on the individual, their lifestyle and their history. Advanced care involves continuing to fine-tune your spinal and neural integrity to allow you to reach new levels of Wellness. Wellness care is for those who have achieved a greater level of spinal health and want care to continue to revitalize their health. As you become eligible for advanced care sessions positioning of your arms, legs and torso are used to re-educate the nervous system to develop strategies for self-correction. You will awaken the subtle energy awareness between yourself and the world. With a body no longer experiencing the world through a defense physiology and chronic Subluxations you expand your awareness of tension, peace and ease awakening your heart center and expanding ability to compassionately experience the world.
DURING YOUR INITIAL CARE WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO OBSERVE:
- your body’s response to adjustments
- changes in your spinal musculature during the adjustments and between visits
- ease and lack of ease in movements
- changes in respiration during and between visits
- changes or lack of change in spinal posture
- changes in regions of both discomfort and ease
- changes regions where tension is held or release
- changes in your body’s natural rhythms
- changes in your body’s synergy
- the relationship of your respiration to stress and to adjustments
