Network Spinal Analysis was developed in the early 1980’s by Dr. Donald Epstein to help patients resolve tension patterns which occur when the spinal cord is over-stretched during physical injury or when the body is under mental or emotional stress.
Traditional chiropractic aims at restoring proper nerve function through manipulation of the spine, thus increasing a person’s health.
Instead of trying to mechanically adjust or align the spine through manipulation of the vertebra like a traditional chiropractor, a Network Chiropractor seeks to understand the physical, emotional and mental factors related to the tension pattern and then find the specific points on the spine that will help the body resolve its tension using just a few ounces of pressure.
No twisting, popping or cracking is necessary.
A typical visit to the Zen Wellness Center is a great experience!
A Network Spinal Analysis session is called an “entrainment”. A treatment is designed to fix or repair something that is broken or wrong; the NSA entrainment is about “retraining” your nervous system to do what it does best, which is self-regulate and self-heal the body. It’s not about restoring you to a previous state, but giving you access to a level of well being you may have never had before.
During an entrainment a wave-like deepening of your breath will spontaneously occur and various regions of your spine will begin to gently move in synch with each other as tension releases.
You will remain fully clothed lying face-down on a table while the doctor evaluates your body using the Network Spinal Analysis system. He will feel your spine and muscles and observe your posture and breathing patterns. He will then use gentle pressure on specific points along your spine to initiate the entrainment process.
A typical visit lasts about 10 to 15 minutes and will leave you feeling more relaxed, energized and at peace.
You can expect to immediately feel more relaxed, loose and flexible in your body. Your breathing will become deeper and easier. In most cases, your pain and tension levels will be significantly reduced within a short time.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg! As your body shifts out of “fight or flight” mode, you’ll begin to experience more clarity, a sense of inner-calm and peace and a pleasant elongation of your spine as your posture straightens. This is only the beginning of the many life-changing benefits that Network Spinal Analysis has to offer.
Network Spinal Analysis is not considered a “treatment” or “therapy.” However, by releasing tension from the spine and helping the nervous system adapt to stress more effectively, our unique process has helped thousands of people experience relief of the following:
Network Spinal Analysis may literally be “touchy-feely”, but it isn’t just some new-age fad! We’ve worked with thousands of people from over 50 countries, including numerous leaders in business, science, athletics, and the arts with outstanding results (find out what people are saying about us).
A retrospective study of over 2,500 people conducted through UC Irvine Medical College documented significant improvements in quality of life in the majority of people receiving Network Chiropractic care.
The wave patterns that occur during a Network entrainment are the focus of several research papers by French mathematician professor Edmund Jonckheere. Professor Jonckheere is currently exploring the relationship between the “wave” created in Network Spinal Analysis and the energy-efficiency and adaptability of the nervous system.
Network Spinal Analysis is a cutting-edge methodology on the frontier of bodymind research! Find out more about Network Spinal Analysis Research.
The Zen Wellness Center is the only clinic in Canada that was specifically designed for Network Spinal Analysis care. It truly is a Zen space, where people feel at home, at peace, and feel they are part of a community of individuals committed to creating the life of their dreams.
We provide educational seminars and interactive workshops, many at no additional cost, on a regular basis to help you get the most out of your care with us.
Back pain, especially chronic back pain, is rarely a one-cause one cure situation. There are many factors that can contribute to ongoing back pain, including unresolved physical injuries, emotional and mental stress.
Rather than just giving you a twist or a pop for temporary relief, we suggest a holistic and comprehensive approach that will help you identify and change the patterns that are contributing to your back pain.
Through a cutting-edge approach that combines low force Network Spinal Analysis “entrainments” (a unique method that promotes a spontaneous wave-like release of tension within the spine) and a specific series of exercises called Somato Respiratory Integration (SRI), we’ll help you release tension and connect to the underlying source of your pain so that you can truly resolve it.
Although we don’t claim to diagnose and treat any symptoms directly, we’ve worked with hundreds of patients in Montreal with many types of headaches, ranging from tension headaches to migraines with positive results. In most cases the severity and frequency of the headaches significantly diminishes, or the headaches vanish altogether.
Medications only provide temporary relief for headaches. We seek to understand the factors contributing to the headaches and help you make the necessary life changes to keep the headaches from recurring. Experience has shown us that headaches, like any other pain signals, are a sign that your body is asking for a change in your behavior, your perceptions or your body structure.
We help you develop the awareness and discover the resources to change the way you’re living. The by-product of that lifestyle could very well be a headache-free life!
The stress over having too much to do and not enough time to do it is epidemic in our culture. Consistently high stress levels freeze the body in a “fight or flight” mode, tightening muscles, rounding shoulders, making breathing shallow, and limiting blood and oxygen to the parts of your brain and body that are responsible for relaxation, revitalization, creativity and growth.
We find that a busy life is typically not the problem. The problem is an inability to shift gears and “unhook” from the stress-causing factors that are overwhelming you.
Our programs will help you release tension from your body and learn how to adapt to and manage the stress that you’re under without taking it home with you. Expect to work with us two times a week for about 8 weeks to get the ball rolling. We’ll release tension from your spine and nervous system, teach you helpful exercises and give you plenty of recommendations to decrease your stress levels quickly and naturally.
When it comes to their computer station, most people have a far from optimal ergonomic setup. In fact, we find that even people with excellent workstations often get neck and back pain from long hours in front of the screen.
The problem is that most people either aren’t aware of, or just ignore their body’s cues and feedback telling them to move, stretch or reposition themselves. They regularly push through to finish a project, even though their bodies are building up considerable tension in the process.
Our solution is to help you get so connected to and in tune with your body’s cues and feedback that you’re able to stay present and attentive to the exact positions you need to be in.
Instead of staying static at your desk and needing neck pain to let you know that you’re not being attentive to your body, with our care, you’ll be able to stay fluid, flexible and free instead.
The cost is the best part! Our programs are very affordable, especially when you consider the cost that doing nothing about the symptoms you’ve been experiencing could have on your life and health.
Your monthly car payment ensures that you’ve got transportation to get where you want to go. For about the same amount per month our 12-month program will help you get where you want to go in your life!
We accept amost all private insurance, and will have receipts ready for you at your convenience.
