Network Wave of Healing: About Network Spinal
Dr. Donald Epstein
at the University of California, Irvine demonstrated that patients
in Network Care reported significant improvement in Physical
Health and symptoms, Emotional/Mental Health and symptoms, Stress,
and Life Enjoyment. A unique Wellness Index was developed to
assess these categories for overall quality of life. Seventy-six
percent of the over 2,800 patients improved in every category.
Although physical symptoms changed most often within the first
couple of months, patients reported their overall life enjoyment
and quality of life continuing to improve year after year.
Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) care two "healing waves"
develop which are unique to Network. One is a breathing wave
that releases tension throughout the spine and body and relaxes
a person. The other is called a somatopsychic (or body-mind)
wave, which is associated with a dolphin type undulation or
movement of the spine. These waves are related to a significant
increase in wellness and quality of life.
people experience these Network "healing" waves, they
tend to make healthier choices. Suddenly the exercise, diet,
supplements, meditation or prayer that may have been resulting
in minimal wellness benefits increased in effectiveness. Saying
it differently, people in Network care, who experience these
waves often double their perceived wellness. As these "healing
waves" progress along a person's spine it revitalizes,
energizes, and helps the body to self correct distortions of
alignment and posture. They move "stuck energy" and
are a resource of new energy and vitality. Vertebra of the spine
spontaneously realign as one of the by products.
helps the person "inside" who is experiencing disease,
and must deal with a prognosis, treatment, and symptoms. With
care they are better able to develop innate strategies to find
tension in the their bodies and spontaneously move and breathe
to dissipate it. NSA helps the person to use the energy within
their spinal tension (and unresolved past and current stressful
or traumatic experiences) to fuel the healing process. Network
Care helps the internal cues to become so available that people
more often act, think, feel and respond in a more productive
and healthier fashion. The internal communication systems become
clearer to coordinate the body more effectively even during
periods of stress and trauma. People have been shown to make
healthier choices and enjoy life more. Also, a wide range of
physical complaints such as headaches, stiffness, pain, eczema,
menstrual cramps, dizziness and many others have been reported
by the Network patients to improve or resolve.
is it that we loose our wellness and health?
seems associated with the way we experience our world. When
an event occurs that our brain determines is not safe for us
to fully experience, the energy and information of the event
is translated into vibration and tension, which is then stored
in the body. It is not unlike the after-image of a flashbulb.
Our body then walls off the offending energy and tension over
time with muscular spasm, spinal distortion, reduced breathing
into the area and reduced movement. Much of what many disciplines
seek to correct through manipulation, massage, and therapy is
often a symptom of this process.
it is safe to experience that energy again, and our bodies develop
the strategy to do this, and digest the information from the
trauma, we cannot really feel whole or well. The state of safety
is one which promotes internal awareness and internal "growth".
body tenses more easily and our physiology remains set on "defense".
In defense we tighten, our blood pressure tends to rise, we
feel less emotion and are living our life in reaction to our
stress of the moment. Nerves that attach through the spinal
cord into the brain connect every cell of the body. Tension
in this main cable network creates tension in the body tissues.
The brain continues to perceive life defensively, and produces
stress chemicals that inhibit the ability to pay attention to
the incomplete "energy" or "unfinished business".
gentle contacts along the neck and lower spine, (where the spinal
cord attaches inside the vertebral column, called Network adjustments
or entrainments, greater body awareness is achieved. The body
moves away from defense and towards growth. The brain becomes
aware of the spine, which is a main conduit of consciousness,
the coordinator of body function, and a proposed location of
the subconscious mind. Our posture, spinal alignment, and tension
patterns all reflect our emotional reactions to our perceived
of us remain in defense throughout or lives, and the higher
more evolved brain does not have the opportunity to develop
its unique properties and evolve new strategies for experiencing
and responding to life.
at peace, the internal growth "programs" can be switched
on because the body does not need to protect itself from injury.
It can then assess if our reactions, adaptations and symptoms
are appropriate or not. We can feel more profoundly and use
subtle information within to make healthier choices. We can
be more compassionate to others, and to ourselves. We can activate
"internal software" for experiencing life, changing
our course, and for healing. Our brain can pay attention to
the body's tension patterns, its spinal alignment, its posture,
and its current state.
order to fix something we must first be able to find it. As
our brain is better able to inventory the body, it can better
orchestrate healing. This naturally occurs as NSA care progresses
and the individual not only becomes aware of spinal tension
patterns, vertebral motion and respiration, but also even the
energetic motion through the body. Natural outcomes of Network
care include this awareness, and even the self -regulation of
spinal tension and alignment.
those people who have had the greatest wounds, or stresses and
traumas in life, they may tap stored tension or blocked energy
through NSA care, to develop the statistically greatest positive
changes in wellness. This is part of the "stress busting"
effect demonstrated in Network Care. I interpret this to suggest
that the greater the wound, the greater the potential gift.
That is, if new strategies can be developed to access the internal
storehouse of energy for healing. This is what appears to happen
in NSA care.
NSA practitioner seeks to promote new strategies for your spine
and nervous system so that you can be more effective at being
well. The spinal assessments the doctor makes are matched with
your personal health and wellness inventory. Allow the practitioner's
expertise, and your ability to heal, to join in celebrating
the wellness that is available to you . . . even in the presence
