Network Spinal Care also known as Network Spinal Analysis and Network Chiropractic 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.
With Network Spinal Care the focus is on reducing tension and improving function within the nervous system and creating long term upgraded strategies for brain-body communication. This is accomplished through the application of light touch contacts to specific points along the spine, called spinal gateways primarily in the upper neck (cervical) and lower spine (sacral) regions. This process is called an Entrainment and it differs from traditional chiropractic adjustments in that no force is used to correct spinal misalignments.
The Entrainment reduces nervous system tension and restores nervous system communication. It improves energy flow through spinal nerves which communicate with all the muscles, organs and cells of the body. Muscle tension reduces and misaligned spinal bones (Vertebral Subluxation) correct on their own. With continued care, your nervous system develops new strategies for healing, the Respiratory Wave and the Network Healing Wave as you discover a greater sense of well-being.
There are three distinct levels of care:
Level one of care helps you develop greater body awareness, improved function and posture. You start to feel better physically and emotionally. In this level of care we look for the generation of a Respiratory wave, a full spine breathing rhythm that flows from your tail bone to the base of your skull during the entrainment.
Level two of care is where you transform chronic stress patterns. Posture and spinal curves continue to improve, you feel better overall, manage stress more efficiently and become better at hearing the subtle cues of your body. This level of care is where the Network Healing Wave develops, a series of rhythmic spinal muscle movements associated with a spontaneous release of spinal and life tensions.
Level three of care helps develop a more integrated mind, body and spirit with the experience of feeling more at peace and a deep sense of overall well-being.
You begin to experience how your life is part of a greater whole. In this level of care, your nervous system is much more efficient in how it deals with stress. There is an opening of the “third oscillator”, the heart-brain as a new nervous system pattern generator. This emerging oscillator creates tremendous positive change for the mind, body and spiritual connections.
Network Spinal Analysis care has been well researched and is responsible for the largest study ever conducted on chiropractic outcomes, A Retrospective Assessment of Network Care Using a Survey of Self-Rated Health, Wellness and Quality of Life. Blanks RH, Schuster TL, Dobson M. Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research, 1997; 1(4) p15-31).
In this study of over 2,000 Network patients from 156 offices in the U.S. and abroad, seventy six percent (76%) of the patients studied reported improved wellness in all categories assessed: physical, mental, emotional, stress response, life enjoyment and overall quality of life.
