About Network Spinal Care


Network Spinal Care is an evidence-based chiropractic approach to health and wellness created by Dr. Donald Epstein in 1987. This technique guides your body in creating sustainable, efficient strategies within the nervous system to release tension and adapt to stress. Network Spinal Care utilizes light touches to specific areas along the spine. These touches assist your body in finding tension patterns within the connective tissue that pull the spine out of position altering your entire nervous system. Your nervous system is the gateway to your experience and expression of life. It receives and interprets information from your body and your environment, then regulates how you respond and adapt to it. It is the facilitator of all healing, perception, movement, emotion, and thought.

Connective tissue tension patterns can develop from physical, emotional, or mental trauma. Trauma occurs when we experience any stimulation that is too great for the nervous system to process at once. The information and experience gets stored within the tissues of the body. When you have stored tension in your body, that tension puts stress on your nervous system and depletes it of energy and resources. This creates dis-ease and limits your capacity for life.

Through Network Spinal Care, you gain access to a greater connection with your body so it can effectively heal, grow, and adapt to life and its challenges. Under our care you will start to recognize areas where you’ve limited yourself physically, emotionally or psychologically, and begin feeling empowered to shift your experience of life in an energy efficient way.

Results from Network Spinal Care include but are not limited to: increased energy, more focused concentration, less anxiety, more ease, less pain, better sleep, more self-empowerment and joy, and quicker recovery and healing!


Network Spinal Care utilizes precise and gentle touches along your spine to cue the brain to become self-aware of learned tension patterns (areas that are constantly draining you of precious energy and resources). The stored tension patterns may be learned as a protective response against physical, emotional, or chemical trauma.

Throughout care, your nervous system will learn new strategies to self-manage and regulate the tension being stored (bound energy) in your body. It will also learn to manage new stress and even use it to your advantage by using the “liberated energy” as fuel to constantly reorganize, adapt and evolve.

The development of a respiratory wave that moves along your spine is one of the primary strategies your body will learn to distribute energy and tension. Another strategy that will develop will be a deep muscle movement based wave along your spine. This will assist in unwinding tension and allowing the spine to move freely and stay well-adjusted.

Through care, most will experience a greater self-awareness and conscious awakening of the relationships between the body, mind, emotions, and expression of the human spirit. This creates an exponentially increased quality of life, allowing you to live up to your fullest potential.



The first part of care is all about discovery! Your brain and nervous system will connect to and discover parts of you that it has lost awareness of, tension stored in your body that is depleting your nervous system, and current strategies the body is using to manage and adapt to stress.


The next part of care transforms old tension into new energy! Here the body learns to let go of these old patterns of storing tension, create new efficient methods of moving the energy and resources, and broaden its capacity to take on more stress and opportunity with ease. It is the release of old bound energy within the body that provides the additional fuel for growth and neurological reorganization!


As your body and nervous system reach more intricate levels of self awareness and energy efficiency, it will awaken a new sense of self. With more sustainable and utilizable energy, your nervous system will encompass a broader sense of awareness. You will experience a greater capacity for interacting with the world and a broader palate of emotional experiences. With increased connectivity within, you also experience more connection and purpose in your day to day life.
