Network Chiropractic Care: Is there more to life?


By: Dr. Lawrence Bell, D.C.

Many of us, at some point along the journey, have asked, “is there more to life than this?”. Often, this question may be coming from a sense of feeling stuck or perhaps not getting access to the more “preferable” qualities of the human experience. We are very adaptable creatures. On the one hand, being able to adapt is critical for survival and moving forward in life. On the other hand, there’s this thing called “mal-adaptation,” where we give our internal real estate over to life’s circumstances; that is, we adapt in ways that eventually come with negative consequences. Like an inflating balloon, circumstances internally pile up over time, leading to stress becoming the status quo. We then experience life through the lens of that stress, limiting the quality of our thoughts, emotions, behaviors, relationships, and ability to thrive in life. It may very well feel like, “is this all there is”? Amid all this, however, there’s good news. 

Many people who end up finding Network Care will have this question of “is there more?” answered-rather experienced- as they progress through care. Years of stress leaving the body, one session at a time… increased breath, movement, energy, and awareness, one session at a time… ability to make necessary life changes, one session at a time. Session by session, one will start to discover internal resources they thought they never had or perhaps never thought they’d be able to access.   

Network Care (the combined use of Network Spinal Analysis and Somato Respiratory Integration) is a health and wellness care system. Its roots lie in traditional Chiropractic, yet the work has expanded well beyond its roots. Chiropractic was built upon the principle that interferences within the nervous system negatively impact our ability to feel healthy and well. The Chiropractic adjustment is delivered to correct any misaligned vertebra that puts pressure on a nerve, thereby restoring a person’s health and wellness. There are myriad ways to take pressure off the nervous system and hundreds of techniques that will address this. The goal is the same: to increase communication between the brain and the rest of the body by removing these interferences, so that optimal function occurs. 

Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) is the Chiropractic portion of Network Care. It helps promote a high-functioning nervous system, one of the main ingredients of human resourcefulness. Unlike traditional Chiropractic (where you may be “cracked,” “popped,” or suddenly twisted), NSA is applied through very gentle contacts along specific areas of the spine. In traditional Chiropractic, the focus is generally on the area of dysfunction (i.e., a misaligned vertebra, area of pain, etc.) and correcting that dysfunction. In NSA, the focus is on areas already at ease and helping the brain to discover (or re-connect to) body parts that have been shut down, alienated, or avoided. The disconnection process results from accumulated stress and the body’s way of maladapting. With NSA, as those disconnected parts begin to rejoin the whole, the spine naturally aligns, breath increases, and one will feel more energized, at ease, flexible, clear-minded, and ready to make any necessary life changes that were perhaps weighing them down before. These are only a few of the many benefits that come with care.

Somato Respiratory Integration (SRI) is the Breathing portion of Network Care. Many practitioners use SRI in combination with NSA. SRI is a series of breathing exercises that help us connect to twelve healing rhythms within the body through breath, touch, movement, and awareness. Together with NSA, clients report major improvements in physical and emotional wellbeing, quality of life and lifestyle, better adaptability to stress, and an overall increase in life enjoyment.

Network Care delivers on the many common reasons people go to see Chiropractors (i.e., back/neck/joint pain, muscle tightness/spasms, misalignments, scoliosis, poor posture, arthritis, fibromyalgia, headaches, emotional/mental stress, digestive disorders, etc.). However, many people enjoy the work for its personal empowerment or transformational benefits, as it can help individuals break through major patterns that are holding them back from living life to the fullest. It teaches the body how to transform tension (stress) into raw fuel for personal growth. People of all ages benefit from this work, from newborns to centenarians. Artists and athletes also find benefits as it tends to increase the quality and refinement of performance.  

NSA is utilized by thousands of practitioners around the world and has been the subject of academic study, research, and publication for its unprecedented effect on wellness and quality of life, adaptability to stress, enhanced life enjoyment, and facilitation of constructive lifestyle changes. Studies are also being conducted on its influence on the advancement and evolution of the nervous system’s strategies for self-organization. 

If you are interested in learning more about Network Care or experiencing the benefits that come with it, please reach out to me, Dr. Lawrence Bell, D.C., at (248) 266-8035.

For those who are seriously considering the care and may have questions or concerns about how this work may impact any current health concerns, a 15-minute complimentary consultation is offered.

On a personal note, there are few things in the world that I’d rather be doing than helping people to experience their true life potential. I chose to practice Network Care because it has been such a powerful catalyst in my own life and in the many patients and loved ones that I serve each day.
