Entrain to Wellness

General Overview

NSA Levels Of Care

Dr. Smorra will Entrain you To Wellness primarily utilizing Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) and it’s Levels of Care protocol. There exist 3 levels of patient care. On any given day, exactly which level(s) are achieved will be clinically determined by evaluating the nervous system,the body’s subsystems and the complexity of the sensory-motor strategies utilized by your brain. Basically, the level of care will be quantified based on your brain’s ability to release Adverse Mechanical Spinal Cord Tension (AMCT) and your brain’s development of increasingly complex sensory-motor strategies. Each level of care utilizes NSA and also includes Somato Respiratory Integration (SRI) exercises; supplemented with the life-choice guidance inherent in Dr. Donald Epstein’s Triad of Change and Reorganizational Healing thesis.

Level 1

New Patients begin in Level 1 or Discover Care. Level 1 involves the brain searching for tension and releasing it. AMCT is located by the brain and released by its creating the Breathing Wave. Discover Care completes itself as the Breathing Wave travels fully from the lower spine (coccyx) to the upper spine/ lower cranium (occiput) unimpeded. The Level 1 experience generally includes the release of concern related stress, tension, pain and a feeling of calm and peacefulness. In late level 1 of care, the Network Wave begins and is confirmed by a single phasic spinal joint vibrating or oscillating.

Level 2

Level 2 is Transform Care and involves emerging movement strategies orchestrated by the brain. Also, the spine, body and mind learns to more effectively stretch and evolve. The now rapidly progressing Network wave is represented by 2 phasic spinal joints vibrating/oscillating. Most remarkably, the Network Wave gathers the tension stored in the body and recycles it, using it as energetic fuel to speed healing.

Level 3

Level 3 involves the Network Wave’s creation of a third phasic oscillator/vibration at the upper sternum area; which occurs simulataneously with the 2 phasic spinal oscillators. The Level 3 patient experience is one of a very deep peacefulness. It will commonly include a metaphoric opening of the inner heart and the expression of related emotions such as compassion and love. Level 3 is entirely Wellness Care and patients are now referred to as Practice Members.

Important Clinical Definitions

1. Network Spinal Analysis care is an evidence based approach to wellness and body awareness. Gentle precise touches to the spine cue 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. Dr. Smorra combine’s clinical assessments of spinal refinements with patient’s self assessments of wellness and life changes. Patient’s can expect greater self-awareness and conscious awakening of the relationships between the body, mind, emotion, and expression of the human spirit.

2. Somato (Body) Respiratory (Breathing) Integration (SRI) is designed to increase your body awareness and perception to help you progress through the Levels of Care. SRI exercises are based on Donald Epstein’s book, The 12 Stages of Healing. SRI exercises are relatively simple to perform and encompass strategies using focused attention, gentle breath, movement and touch. SRI provides a tool for focusing your attention in a way that works for your healing and empowerment. As a result of performing these exercises you will experience a shift in your state of consciousness to one that supports trust for the body-mind and your life experience. In other words, as you learn to trust your body and its many rhythm’s, you will feel increasingly safe and comfortable living in it.

3. The Breathing Wave – From the very beginning of care , Dr. Smorra will cue your brain to create this wave in order to release your stress , tension and pain. The Breathing Wave travels up and down the spine and results in the release of Adverse Mechanical Cord Tension (AMCT)and stress. You will notice the entrainment (or harmonization) of your spinal movements with your respiration. This experience will be relaxing and renewing. Painful areas that were armored (protected), due to past tensions and traumas, often release as the brain and spine coordinate functions more effectively. As care progresses, your body will naturally move and stretch in new ways that help you to self-regulate tension and body alignment. As your stress, tension and pain melts away, you will feel more vibrant, peaceful, and energized. Your body’s newly awakened ability to connect and release its stress will be accompanied by a greater sense of ease,increased body-mind flexibility, and often more attractiveness.

4.The Network Wave – This wave occurs initially during the late stages of Level 1 care and is associated with an undulating dolphin type spinal motion and individual(spinal bone) intervertebral joint vibration or oscillation. This wave temporarily amplifies any tension in the spine and recycles it so that your spinal area tension actually becomes your energetic fuel for healing and transformation. Your spine will increase its flexibility and ranges of motion as you feel less anxiousness and tension. The experience of the Network Wave results in a significant release of stress derived from emotional origins.

5.The Spinal Gateway is the access point where Dr. Smorra applies the light spinal entrainment/adjustment contact which cues your brain to release your stress and tension. Contacting the Spinal Gateway provides for the correction and self regulation of vertebral subluxations and also promotes the development of stress reducing, life enhancing, sensory-motor strategies, principally the Breathing Wave and the Network Wave.
