What is Network Spinal Analysis?
Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) is a body focused treatment that focuses on your spine and nervous system. It reorganizes and releases your body’s stored stresses and tension, physical and emotional, and redirects it into personal growth.
NSA is an evidence based approach to healing your spine, nervous system and brain as a whole. Gentle precise touch to the spine cues the brain to create new wellness promoting strategies by helping move any fight, flight, freeze response that may be locked within the nervous system. 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 reorganization and enhanced wellness. This means healing the root cause of your pain and not just the symptom. NSA is exclusively practiced by Doctors of Chiropractic in relationship to the identification and self-regulation of spinal tension and subluxation (vertebral misalignment) patterns with special focus on the nervous system and your body’s innate ability to heal itself.
Here’s how Network Spinal Analysis works:
The spine and nervous system can store and accumulate stresses. This can occur when there has been a physical or emotional challenge that was too overwhelming at the time to navigate through and release. This is the basis of our fight, flight or freeze response and posture. This results in a disconnection from the brain/body’s self-regulating capacity.
NSA focuses on the restoration of the brain/body’s self-regulating capacity. This can create profound changes in physical and emotional well-being as we learn to let go of those past challenges. This also makes it easier for the brain and body to respond more appropriately to the “NOW” rather than reacting from an old set of responses and defense strategies that are no longer useful. It promotes spinal alignment and the correction of subluxations.
As you progress through care:
A contact is applied over specific areas along the spine which promote involuntary waves of breath changes or muscle movement along the spine (as documented with Surface EMG studies.) Postural distortion, subluxation and muscle imbalances will then begin to recover. Care progresses in a series of levels. Each level is associated with an increasing ability of the nervous system to optimize strategies for better organization and self-healing. Our ability to handle stress is increased, enabling us to handle tension in a more constructive and healthy manner. The stress and challenge in life can become a tool for advancement…. fuel for our own healing.
