Discover Network Spinal Analysis

Network Spinal Analysis, also known as NSA, is a Reorganizational approach to wellness that incorporates gentle contacts, applied specifically at Spinal Gateways, to assist the body in developing new strategies for living, healing and optimizing individual potential. Our objective is not to restore a person to a previous state of health perhaps before the onset of a disease, pain, before the depression set in or even before the crisis took place in life. Instead our focus is to create a state of being, strategies for living and an access to resourcefulness that has never been experienced before!

While in care, two unique spinal “healing waves” develop that advance a person’s spinal and neural integrity and adaptability. Much like tuning the strings of a violin, practitioners modulate these waves by using gentle and specific touches in a consistent sequence. Over time this reeducation of the nervous system significantly advances a persons wellness, inner awareness, connection to themselves and others, and dramatically improves their quality of life and higher level of humanity.

During each season of NSA Care, the physiology and consciousness of the practice member develops new capabilities that include being able to self-reference and dissipate neural-spinal tension patterns, naturally leading towards making healthier choices, increasing your body’s ability to more appropriately respond to its experiences, challenges and needs, and helping you develop lifetime strategies for self-awareness and healing.

Transform through the two unique spinal “healing” waves
Profound transformation occurs through the development of two unique spinal “healing” waves.

The Respiratory Wave is a breath wave that releases tension throughout the spine and body and brings a person to a deeper level of ease, peace, relaxation and the inner experience of safety.

The Somatopsychic (body-mind) wave is associated with a dolphin like undulation or movement of the spine. This wave is an indication that the body and mind are fully connecting and entraining to one another. These waves are shown through research to be directly related to significant increases in wellness and quality of life. They both assist in the self-regulation of tension and energy states within the neural, muscular, osseous (spinal vertebrae) and connective tissue matrix of the body, and significantly enhance life enjoyment and wellness.

These waves move “stuck” energy allowing the body to revitalize, energize and self correct distortions in alignment (vertebral subluxations) and posture.

Awaken beyond the tension patterns

Our health and wellness is a direct reflection of the way we experience our world. When our nervous system experiences a physical, mental-emotional or chemical stress, trauma or event that it determines to be unsafe for us to fully experience in the moment, the energy and information of that event is translated as vibration and tension.

This protective defense is then stored in the body as we “wall off” or armor against the offending energy and tension over time with increasing muscular armoring and spasm, spinal distortion, emotional highjacking, limited flexibility and movement and restricted respiration and ease in the area.

With Network Care the physiology learns to access new options other than this habit of “defense posture” and moves from stress physiology and limiting “flight or fight” strategies towards growth.

This embodiment of growth is available by engaging the higher part of the brain, the frontal lobes of the cerebral cortex, the area through which we observe ourselves and make choices regarding our behavior. This is the most recently developed region of our brain and is the area through which we can reach a higher level of humanity, one which embraces spirituality and evolution.

|Somato Respiratory Integration|


Somato (Body) Respiratory (Breathing) Integration™ SRI - is designed to offer you new options in your experience of your body and your personal healing.  It educates you to your body’s rhythms and inner wisdom through focused attention, gentle breath, movement and touch.  SRI provides you with a means of placing your attention on your body, the vessel of human spirit, and provides a tool for focusing your attention in a way that works for your healing and empowerment.

Somato Respiratory Integration™ exercises based on Donald Epstein’s book The 12 Stages of Healing: A Network Approach to Wholeness are designed to help the brain reconnect with the body and its experience.   The goal Somato Respiratory Integration™ is to help you develop lifetime skills, safety, strength, wisdom and love in relationship to the experience of your body, its vibration, structure, and energy.  Through reconnecting you through breath, touch, focused movement and attention, you are able to experience your body more fully and instantly shift your state of consciousness to one that supports trust for your body-mind and life experience.

Somato Respiratory Integration™ is revolutionary in that the approach includes specific exercises which link enhanced somatic awareness with respiration.  It promotes the ability to focus attention on gross and subtle body movements and rhythms, self-directed breathing, awareness of one’s tension, and verbal statements reflecting one’s internal state.  Associated with these exercises are self-generated dynamic processes, which dissipate energy stored as tension, enhance structural flexibility, increase the experience of safety within the body, and demonstrate characteristic shifts in states of consciousness.

It is unusual in today’s society for individuals to consider their inner cues as primary, and to trust their bodies.  Paying attention to one’s internal cues and somato-emotional self through breath, touch, and motion involves a new paradigm that is advanced by Somato Respiratory Integration™.

Some are first motivated to learn this skill in relationship to a symptom, illness or crisis to experience greater safety within the temple of one’s own body.  For many, SRI provides the connection with the embodied emotion, intelligence and spirit.  For others, it is the desire to use the body as a reference beacon to their state of consciousness.  With Somato Respiratory Integration™ you will discover how your inner perception and experience of the world determines to a great degree who you are, your overall wellness, and the connection to yourself.  SRI contributes to your expanding sense of wholeness.

Through the use of your own hands, directed movement, focused breath, and certain well timed statements reflecting the inner state, you initiate mechanisms otherwise inhibited or unavailable.

Reorganizational Healing helps individuals to create their own maps to self assess themselves and how to draw on their strengths.  This supports new change and creates a new baseline in life.  It is about a real life practical understanding of oneself, and powerful tools so that symptoms, disease, problems, and life stresses can spark self-inquiry, wisdom, new energy sources and ultimately new actions to create a more fulfilling and resilient life.  It is a model that focuses on life, health and wellness outcomes.

Reorganizational Healing was featured in May 2009 Issue of the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, in an article entitled Reorganizational Healing: A Paradigm for the Advancement of Wellness, Behavior Change, Holistic Practice, and Healing authored by Drs. Donald Epstein, Simon Senzon and Dan Lemberger.  Accompanying this article there is a guest Editorial by Dr. Robert Blanks, Reorganizational Healing: An Idea Whose Time Has Come. 

Restorative Therapeutics (which is our cultural baseline and is observed in contrast to Reorganizational Healing) seeks to eliminate, reduce, control, restore or return a person to a prior minimal state, and is based on the emotion of fear and helplessness.  There's been a cultural hallucination about this, which supposes that this is helping to heal an individual and make them more whole.  There is however no intent to help improve the human condition or health/wellness of the person to increasingly more complex or deeper levels, beyond what existed before the condition or symptom, or crisis. 

Restorative Therapeutic helps the individual and the society move away from the very processes and experiences, which can give more meaning, direction, understanding and impetus to create fundamental change and progress in life. They also severely drain the health care system in the overuse and over reliance on expensive and sometimes ineffective procedures.  I mention this not to down play the need of this type of intervention at times, just that we as a nation cannot depend on this one focus regarding health, wellness and human resourcefulness.  We must be able to creating new, evolving, more efficient and empowered states, in relationship to our life and well-being. 

Somato Respiratory Integration, as an application of Reorganizational Healing in that it enhances and create conscious awareness and participation with the body as a tool to experience life with increasing depth of an internal connection and wider ranges of human expression.
