Network Spinal Analysis (NSA)



One of the goals of NSA is to help the body to “self-correct” and hence to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal.

Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) is an extremely effective branch of chiropractic that typically uses gentle touches to your spine. When your body experiences overloads greater than your ability to deal with, it often results in a “circuit breaker” response in the body, known as a vertebral subluxation. These overloads may be physical, chemical, mental or emotional, for example slips and falls, injuries, chemical overloads, emotional stress or mental overload. These are often present without spinal pain or other obvious symptoms, but will affect your general health and well-being. Many people who say they “just don’t feel right”, often have subluxations that are affecting their health.

Recent medical research indicates that patients undergoing NSA care experience dramatic improvements in not just their physical well-being but also in areas such as their ability to cope with stress, their overall life enjoyment, increased flexibility, more energy, enhanced immune function, less distress about physical pain, etc. This research, undertaken by the College of Medicine, University of California, also showed that 95% of patients’ expectations had been met!

One of the goals of NSA is to help the body to “self-correct” and hence to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal. What does this mean for you? It enables you to:

  • Co-ordinate the function of all your cells, tissues and organs more effectively
  • Move with more ease and freedom
  • Become more aware of your world and your body
  • Be more flexible in your behaviour
  • Experience your feelings more fully
  • Breathe with more depth and ease
  • Express your innate intelligence or natural wisdom more easily
  • See chart below for further documented benefits of NSA, as found by research.
