What is Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) and How Does It Work?
NSA is a unique and specialized form of healing, practiced exclusively by Doctors of Chiropractic. The contacts in NSA are very gentle and very specific and do not use force, nor do they produce “popping” or “cracking” sounds.
Network Spinal Analysis is similar to traditional chiropractic ie. we are interested in the assessment and function of your nervous system and that we examine both the joint and muscular systems. NSA goes one step deeper by assessing the role of the connective tissue sheath that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. This sheath is called the meninges.
NSA works by accessing the cortex/higher brain via very specific areas along the spine called spinal gateways (SGs). The cortex has the ability to send signals to the lower brain centers to turn off stress/defense physiology. When the hormones and chemicals associated with stress/defense are turned off, the body can come out of survival mode. Once out of survival mode (also known as fight or flight), the body is free to heal.
The Four Sacred Seasons
Your highly skilled Network Practitioner will guide you through the four sacred seasons. The sacred seasons refer to distinct periods during one’s journey in life. Each season represents the way a person influences his/her environment and how his/her environment influences him/her.
We learn the building blocks for connecting to the body on a deeper level and for releasing tension. One experiences more ease, peace and flexibility. One learns strategies for reducing stress or defense physiology.
We learn to release deeper layers of chronic tension in the body/mind. We develop more strategies for releasing old patterns of physical, emotional and mental stress. The focus here is on claiming or reclaiming sources of strength, courage, wisdom and insight.
We tap into higher levels of consciousness and experience more of our authentic nature. We take actions based upon the awareness and experience of empathy, love, compassion and gratitude.
Information from the three other seasons is put together. This allows an individual to create a greater depth of experience through elements of more than one season at a time.
