Gentle Touch Adjustments Promote Longterm Correction
Network Spinal is an evidence based approach to wellness and body awareness. Gentle precise touch to the spine cues the brain to create new wellness promoting strategies. Two unique healing waves develop that 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.
Gentle touch adjusting is a characteristic of Network Spinal. The intent is to enable the body’s own self generated mechanisms of movement and breathing to assist in the correction of mechanical tension and interference to the nervous system. Since the regions the chiropractor is seeking to adjust are not the regions of maximum tension, vertebrae stuck out of place, inflammation or pain, but instead regions often remote from them likely to generate these conditions, minimal force is required for correction. The body has a striving to utilize energy most efficiently, and to self correct. The body’s own self organizational intelligence responds to the specific touch to generate a correction.
Benefits of Network Spinal
No Painful Adjustments: gentle touch adjustments of areas surrounding the problem re-align your body and treat the root cause, not the symptom.
Promotes Longterm Correction: traditional chiropractic care involves focusing on the area of pain, not the underlying cause.

Special points on the body, depending on your condition, are selected on which to apply MEA.
What is Microlight therapy?
Microlight therapy is a unique treatment system for pain relief, injury rehab and facial rejuvenation. It combines to powerful modalities – microcurrent and color light therapy. Special wands are used to apply treatment to selected acupuncture points and regions of pain.

What is microcurrent? Does it hurt?

Yet microcurrent therapy has been proven to produce some of the most dramatic and rapid results for relieving pain and improving range of motion. Microcurrent is NOT the same as most other electrical stimulation devices you may have been previously treated with. Based on the principle of “Less is More”, there is no discomfort and you will enjoy much more favorable results.

Microcurrent works so well because it helps the body balance and restore its own electrical functions when they go awry. It is also well established that certain forms of therapeutic light can produce profound pain relieving and healing effects.

Microlight also works through the principle of resonance – the ability of energy frequencies to influence and harmonize what they are applied to.
