Before getting on a table, it is important to take an inventory of your life: emotional background, health issues, family influence etc. During your initial consultation, you and Jane will review this vast array of information to draw potential conclusions about where and how you store pain in your body. Here we get a whole picture of who you are. After this initial intake, we will perform a spinal analysis and you will receive your first spinal entrainment (network adjustment). At the follow up visit we will check in with you and discuss the results of the previous visit as well as how care is delivered in the office. You will then receive a second entrainment.
As early as possible in your care, we have you attend an introductory Workshop where we explain the principles of Network Spinal Analysis and Somato-Respiratory Integration. We recommend you purchase the following two books: Healing Myths, Healing Magic by Donald Epstein, and the Somato Respiratory Workbook. These books will help to further explain the philosophy behind our care and help you get the most out of your journey with us.
Basic Care (Level 1) has you develop the strategy of connecting and releasing tension accumulated in your body from past stresses and traumas.
Periodically we re-evaluate to assess if the body has learned Level 1 strategies. You may then decide that you have achieved your wellness goals, or you might wish to move on to Level 2 of care to further refine the wellness strategies you have developed.
Each Network session lasts 15-30 minutes depending on the level of care we are working that day. We apply very light and gentle touches to your spine and direct your attention and breathe into certain areas of the body. After your network session you may sit and rest for a few minutes to further integrate the strategies from the spinal entrainment.
