Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) is an advanced, holistic approach to healing the spine and nerve system in order to improve your overall level of health and your quality of life. The NSA system has been shown to help people with conditions ranging from back pain to post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse and infertility, and studies have validated NSA care as a way to predictably enhance wellness and quality of life across the board.
Dr. Donald Epstein, D.C. developed Network Spinal Analysis™ in the early 1980’s to help patients resolve pain, strain, stress, and tension patterns. From working with thousands of people, he found that specific tension patterns occur when the spinal cord and spinal nerves are stretched, torqued, compressed, or impinged. This tension is made worse by mental, emotional, and chemical stress in our bodies. When the spinal cord and associated nerves are stretched or damaged, they lose the ability to properly coordinate the brain and body, and they distribute tension and vibration in different patterns through the body’s 75-100 trillion cells. This embodied stress, or “defense physiology”, profoundly affects every aspect of your body-mind: proper function, emotion, identity, behaviors, and conscious awareness.
During an NSA session we evaluate your spine and nervous system with the NSA protocol and check for the presence of one of five different possible patterns or phases of spinal cord tension. Then, instead of twisting, cracking or popping your spine, we use precise touch to specific areas near the ends of your spine with just a few ounces of pressure to create what’s called “spinal entrainment”, a spontaneous wave-movement that travels through your body changing the frequency of the phase and releasing the tension.
Spinal entrainment has been shown to help the central nervous system “reorganize” and evolve, and people receiving NSA care are able to more quickly and easily decrease pain and adapt to change while developing a greater awareness of the relationships between their body, mind, and emotions.
Network Care has been shown to help people with a variety of conditions including:
