We Do Things Differently, but For Good Reason.
Did you know what we do is different. It’s not your traditional chiropractic.
I often get asked how these modalities differ from some others out there like Spinal Flow, Bowen or Reiki. Although I can not speak for what they do or do not do, I can unpack what the modalities that I utilise every day in practice offer and what their benefits are. Today, we are going to discover a little more about NetworkSpinal. It’s a long one, but a goodie!
What’s the Big Deal With NetworkSpinal?
NetworkSpinal (NS) Chiropractic is a gentle, no “crack” method, utilising gentle & specific contacts along the spine. It was created over 30 years ago by American Chiropractor Dr Donny Epstein. Over the years it has gone by a number of different names as it evolved (Network Spinal Analysis, NSA, Network Chiropractic). It has consistently been refined as new evidence from scientific research showed how it could be more effective and efficient. NS, & Chiropractic in general, is a holistic approach to your wellbeing. It is designed to assist you and your nervous system to function at its best! The nervous system is the bodies communication highway. Not only constantly integrating information from your body, but also the environment around you. If the spine (home of the biggest highway of all, the spinal cord) is under tension or misaligned, this can cause distortion of those messages between the body & brain.
Traditional chiropractic care aims to restore these misalignments and therefore the clarity of communication between the brain, body & its environment. NS takes it one step further, helping to teach your brain to locate those pockets of tension, or misalignments and release it on its own. That is one of the reasons such little force is needed on behalf of the Chiropractor in order for you to feel the benefits of care. It’s a gentle touch is a non-invasive and effective approach to helping your body heal & become better at doing it on its own!
NetworkSpinal has been proven to not only assist in your physical wellbeing, but also your mental & emotional wellbeing, along with overall quality of life. A study at the University of California, Irvine’s medical college showed conclusively that individuals undergoing NS care experienced significant improvements in both pain and stress levels. This study gathered results from 2,818 subjects, with a stunning 99% showing they were more than satisfied with the level of care they received, and its long-term results! Below are just some of the other results uncovered from this study.
Less menstrual discomfort
Decrease in emotional highs & lows
Better capacity to respond to life stresses
Greater compassion for others
The above a just a handful of the findings that were made as a result of this study. Do you know anyone who could benefit from the above changes in their lives? There is so much that can change in your life as a result of NS care. It is why I utilise it in practice everyday, because the results go beyond pain, it’s reorganisational and for me, it’s been life changing.
NetworkSpinal holds such power for change. Its capacity to facilitate ease within your nervous system and therefore space for reorganisation is cutting edge. And, that is all thanks to your body and its capacity to adapt and change when presented with the right environment. Dr K x
