Our Center is a fully integrated Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) and Somato Respiratory Integration (SRI) office. In today’s culture of stress we are in a state of information overload and wisdom deprived. Our bodies are working in overdrive just to maintain health and seek balance, which does not leave much room for personal growth. This is because the constant over stimulation we receive on a daily basis desensitizes our nervous system putting our body in a state of defense. Network care gradually shifts our body from defense into safety, which allows for a greater experience of peace, not limited to our body. This state of ease creates a higher level of efficiency in the brain and nervous system, contributing significantly to our overall wellness, happiness, and success.
What is Network Spinal Analysis?
Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) utilizes gentle touch contacts on the spine to shift the body from a defense physiology to growth. Defense physiology shows up as a protective posturing which causes the shoulders to tighten, head to come forward, and our breath to diminish. This posture elongates the spinal cord diminishing blood supply to the brain, specifically the frontal lobe. In the evolution of the brain the frontal lobe is the newest portion and is responsible for higher thought, consciousness, empathy, love, sense of self, and sexual desires. The lower brain centers (hind brain), which is the more instinctual part of the brain becomes responsible for our actions. In this state we are reacting to life as opposed to responding from it. Although it is a viable short term strategy for us to be instinctual and make quick decisions when responding to threatening events it is damaging in the long term. A Network Spinal Analysis entrainment (or adjustment) promotes ease in the body using the stress and tension as the fuel for shifting the body to a more healthful state of being. This shift creates strategies in the nervous system for connecting and releasing tension which has been shown to significantly improve wellness and quality of life.
What is Somato Respiratory Integration?
Somato Respiratory Integration (SRI) is an educational and bodywork system designed to advance the strategies created within Network Spinal Analysis entrainments. Through breath, touch, and movements we facilitate peace, safety, and connection in the body. In addition to integrating SRI in the office during the entrainment sessions we offer ongoing workshops utilizing SRI purely on its own.
“Network Spinal Analysis represents the epitome of “body” work in our times the leading edge of Body-Mind-Spirit integration. The work will transform the planet.”– Candace Pert, PhD. Author of Molecules of Emotion
“Network Spinal Analysis and Somato Respiratory Integration, Donny Epstein‘s revolutionary methodologies, are amongst the most powerful sources of personal transformation I have ever experienced or seen. They produce embodied and empowered strategies that are both sustainable and enjoyable for enhanced human resourcefulness and wellness.” – Tony Robbins
