You’re probably wondering how I got started in chiropractic techniques and the unique approach of Network Spinal Analysis (NSA). Well, since I was young, I’ve been interested in health.
Aged 18, I turned down a place at Edinburgh University to study medicine, a choice that no one around me could understand. Feeling somewhat lost I chose instead to study a chemistry degree and subsequently worked in multiple jobs in the Pharmaceutical Industry for seven years, but none of these inspired me.
Then, by chance, a back injury took me to a chiropractor and I’ve never looked back. I was amazed by the improvements in my back pain and a long-term shoulder injury after my chiropractor adjusted my neck.
That’s why in 1998 I decided to follow my heart – a decision that led me to chiropractic school. My UK-based education was very conventional. I learnt a huge amount about medicine, how to diagnose illnesses, and also how to manipulate the spine to treat back pain, neck problems and a variety of musculo-skeletal conditions.
For my first few years in practice I had a thriving back pain clinic. I used spinal manipulation as my primary technique and my patients loved it. While studying the Webster Technique (for Pregnant clients) in London, I received my first Network chiropractic (NSA) adjustment – a gentle approach that changed my world.
My colleague used several incredibly soft touches to my pelvis and neck to treat my back pain and I felt my body fall into deep relaxation. That night, I slept the best I had for years and my back pain melted away.
I was fascinated by how seemingly little she had done and how dramatically better I felt the next day. That’s how I ended up studying this innovative technique a few months later.
"I have no idea what you have just done, but I want more!"
After I completed the course, I offered it to my first patient of the day and her words will stay with me forever – “I have no idea what you have just done, but I want more!”. No-one had ever expressed that amount of enthusiasm towards my adjusting and, needless to say, I was hooked.
Little did I realise how much my life and health would change after studying NSA, and how much more I could now offer my clients. The transformations I have witnessed personally and professionally by switching to NSA have surpassed my wildest dreams.
Finally, here was a technique that not only released patients from their physical pain and suffering, but also empowered clients by helping them to develop new strategies to dramatically improve their own wellbeing, allowing them to experience a new lease of life.
So since 2007, I’ve been on a journey to learn everything I can about Network Spinal Analysis, including all the tools offered by developer of NSA Donald Epstein, to help people “reorganise their body and life”.
Over the last decade, I’ve made it my mission to learn as much as I can, so I can make the biggest difference to my clients, helping them to fully heal, discover a new level of health and give them a fresh vitality for life.
