Network Spinal Analysis
Network Spinal Analysis is a lesser known method of chiropractic care that focuses on connecting with the nervous system in order to free the tension around the spine that is causing misalignment. Network Spinal Analysis, or Network Chiropractic, differs from traditional chiropractic treatments because it focuses on the tension that is being caused by a malfunctioning nervous system. The tension is typically in the root of the problem, so Network Spinal Analysis is effective at working on a cure, not just masking pain. The body’s nervous system is what sends signals from your brain to all the different parts of the body. It is what sends pain signals from the spine back to the brain, which has a major effect on how we experience pain levels. Those who practice the Network Chiropractic technique believe that nerve interference is what causes many of the health problems we experience today. What people don’t seem to realize is that the nervous system turns mental and physical stress into tension, which is usually stored in the spine. This tension eventually causes subluxations, or misalignments in the spine. The more stress in your life, the more subluxations will occur in the spinal area. If the tension is not dealt with at a deeper level the cycle of pain only continues.
Classical Acupuncture is a comprehensive medical system rooted in the rich traditions of Chinese Medicine which involve five energetic channel systems. Classical Acupuncture differs greatly from modernized Acupuncture practices, such Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which encompasses a simplified form of Acupuncture that’s become standardized in China and is taught in most Acupuncture colleges in the U.S. Through its profound capacity to understand disease development and progression, Classical Acupuncture can treat virtually any condition—from acute and chronic pain to the most complex chronic degenerative diseases prevalent in modern society, including autoimmune disorders. Classical Acupuncture involves the gentle insertion of fine needles into specific points along the energetic channel systems of the body that in concert provide the foundation for deep relaxation and healing.
