Network Spinal Analysis : A Light Touch Chiropractic Technique
You may experience physical pain or stress from falls, work or sports injuries, poor posture or work place ergonomics. These stresses may cause physical complaints such as neck pain, shoulder tension, and back pain to name a few.
Your body might be suffering from chemical stressors such as pesticides, antibiotics, poor diet, and alcohol use.
Or you are struggling to deal with day to day activities in our busy modern world, resulting in mental and emotional tension. Your workplace interactions, deadlines, financial pressure, family issues can all be factors that trigger you. Resulting in the inner build-up of thoughts and emotions that we experience as stress.
Everything you experience is gathered by your brain which flows through the spine and in some cases of trauma or repetitive daily stressors, causes physical, emotional, or behavioral complaints.
Healing from The Inside out
There are many different chiropractic techniques, all of which are striving for the same goal: to improve the function of the spine and nervous system to allow for the body to become healthier. Many of these techniques involve specific high-velocity maneuvers (adjustments) which usually cause the joints to release its gas giving the 'pop' or 'cracking' sounds coming from your spine (or other joints).
Whilst the various traditional chiropractic spinal adjustment techniques are very effective, the physical alignment created by the chiropractor’s manual force is not enjoyed by everyone.
"Everything you experience is interpreted by the nervous system; your brain, spinal cord (which flows through the spine), and spinal nerves. Loss of spinal motion and alignment therefore causes physical, emotional, and behavioural complaints."
Network Spinal Analysis (NSA for short), also known as Network Care or Network Chiropractic, offers a different way to help the body heal and release underlying spinal tension using a very gentle and precise touch. The gentle (with no cracking') specific contacts along the spine, allows the brain to respond causing it to find embedded tension within the central nervous system, primarily in the spinal cord. When the brain and spinal cord can find and connect to those tensions, the body will respond by doing a series of breaths or movements which ultimately cause that tension to be released. Each adjustment is referred to more specifically as an 'entrainment', because they allow the brain and nervous system to learn and build inner strategies for better mobility, more breath, and more ease inside the body.
Network Spinal Analysis is a holistic spinal care system. This technique is different from other chiropractic techniques in that there is no twisting , “cracking” or popping of the spine (manual adjustments). It is gentle, uses light and precise touch, and is highly effective and powerful.
It is safe, and is for everyone; from yogis to athletes, from dancers to entrepreneurs, from children to elderly.

What People Say
Network Spinal Analysis or Network Care has developed over the last 30 years, through research it has evolved to be a highly sophisticated method of care. It is practiced and taught worldwide, being widely popular in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe. Awaken Chiropractic is one of the few Network Care practices in Asia currently.
Network Spinal Analysis is an evidenced based approach to wellness and body awareness. Gentle precise touches to the spine cues the brain to create new wellness promoting strategies. Two unique healing waves develop with this work. They are associated with spontaneous release of spinal and life tensions, and the use of existing tension as fuel for spinal re-organization and enhanced wellness. Practitioners combine their clinical assessments of spinal refinements with patient’s self assessments of wellness and life changes. Greater self- awareness and conscious awakening of the relationships between the body, mind, emotion, and expression of the human spirit are realised through this popular healing work. NSA is exclusively practiced by Doctors of Chiropractic in relationship to the identification and self regulation of spinal tension and subluxation patterns.
Benefits of Care
Research, in conjunction with noted neurobiologists, at the Medical College at the University of California, Irvine studied almost 3,000 people receiving Network care across the USA, Australia, Canada and Puerto Rico. The study found that Network Care is associated with statistically significant improvement in people's Health Related Quality of Life. People report sweeping, across the board positive outcomes relative to their: Physical Well-Being, Stress Levels, Emotional and Psychological Well-Being, Life Enjoyment, Lifestyle Changes and Overall Quality of Life. Notable self-reported life improvements from individuals who participated in this monumental research study.
