Happy Sunday purples!
It’s another beautiful day on the goldy today!! I hope that wherever you are you are enjoying your Sunday, even if it is not as beautiful a day as it is here.
Yesterday I had my first ever Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) session which is a form of Chiropractic and a very different form than I think a lot of people are used to. Last year when I was training for my marathon, I formed a very painful sacro iliac inflammation issue for which I had to go to an Osteopath for treatment. In the lead up to the marathon, in order to manage the condition, I had to be adjusted by the Osteopath on a weekly basis. After the marathon I stopped running training and while the issue didn’t go away entirely, it has only really been a niggle here and there which was just annoying rather than particularly painful. Over the past month or so though, I have noticed a gradual increase in symptons and severity.
One of my clients practices NSA and I was interested in trying it, so I thought now would be a good time to book in for my first session. Right from the beginning when I was filling out the paperwork , I realised that this was going to be totally different from the normal Chiropractic experience. I was being asked about my stress levels both past and current, about my sleep patterns, about past car accidents, about my levels of happiness and satisfaction with my life as well as a whole heap of other things that I wouldn’t have expected to be asked.
When I attended the first session yesterday morning, it started out with a long conversation where we discussed the information I had filled out on the form and I learnt a lot about how all of it can impact on the body. It was absolutely fascinating and we talked for a lot longer than was allocated. Sorry Lyndall! The NSA session actually only took about 20 minutes and it was nothing like the physical adjustments I have had in the past. The definition of NSA on some literature that I was given after my session is “gentle and precise touching to engage the person’s brain to assess it’s own tension and stress patterns”. For 20 minutes I laid face down on a table and concentrated on deep even breathing, while I was being lightly touched in certain places all over my body. It was gentle, non invasive, extremely relaxing and I struggled to stay awake to be quite honest! Afterwards, I felt absolutely amazing. While my symptoms are not completely better, I can feel a definite difference and can’t wait for my next session. I actually didn’t realise how much tension I was hanging onto and how that was affecting my body until I felt the release of that tension yesterday and it feels so wonderful!
It’s amazing what can happen when you try something new and I definitely encourage you to try NSA for yourself, especially if you have a lot of stress in your life.
Have a great week everyone!
