SHIfT Happens!

  1. 1. Exchange STRESS & TENSION for Increased Energy & Performance!
  2. 2. the problem. . . According to the Center for Disease Control, stress is the cause of up to 95% of all disease.
  3. 3. what is stress? To your body, stress is synonymous with change. Anything that causes a change in your body and in your life, causes stress. It does not matter if it is a “good” change or a “bad” change, they are both perceived by the body as stress.
  4. 4. Stress – the fuel provided by life for creative action.
  5. 5. how do we lose our health & wellness? When an event occurs that our brain determines is not safe for us to fully experience, the energy and information of that event is translated into tension, which is then stored in the body. Our body then walls off the offending energy and tension over time with muscular spasm, spinal distortion, reduced breathing into the area and reduced movement.
  6. 6. stored energy & tension  Brain/Spinal Cord (fatigue, foggy thinking, memory loss)  Muscle tissue (muscle spasm, aches, pains, etc.)  Joints (postural distortion and spinal misalignment)  Organs, cells (organ dysfunction and disease)
  7. 7. common stressors:  Arguments  Conflicts  Catching a cold  Breaking a leg  A skin infection  Loss of a loved one  Drugs (over the counter or prescribed)  Change or loss of job  Lack of exercise or poor diet
  8. 8. frequently overlooked stressors  Gravity  Barometric Pressure > Changes in the Weather  Environment  Universal Dynamics > Moon Cycles, etc.  Promotion, Graduation, New Relationships, etc.
  9. 9. “SOMETIMES WE JUST FEEL BUMMED OUT!”
  10. 10. the stress response (in a nutshell)  Adrenalin is Released (Provides More Energy) These three functions use a  Blood Sugar Elevates lot of energy and are not (Provides More Energy) necessary for our  Blood Pressure Rises immediate survival. (Provides More Oxygen to Muscles)  Immunity Turns Off  Pulse Increase (Provides More Oxygen to Muscles)  Digestion Turns Off  Muscles Tense (Provides Readiness for  Sexual Function Turns Off Action)  Pupils Dilate (See More In Less Light)
  11. 11. If during these stressful events, the Emotional Brain or Limbic System is involved (we feel fear, anger, resentment, etc.). It then sends a message to the Brain Stem to maintain the Stress Response to keep us safe, just in case such a situation ever happens again. Over time, this develops into what is called “Defense Posture.”
  12. 12. long term effects of stress response  Adrenalin is Released (Anxiety / Depression)  Blood Sugar Elevates (Diabetes)  Blood Pressure Rises (Hypertension)  Pulse Increases (Cardiac Arrhythmia)  Muscles Tense (Fibromyalgia, Neck & Back Pain)  Pupils Dilate (Far-vision)  Immunity Turns Off (All immune related diseases)  Digestion Turns Off (Constipation, Diarrhea and Indigestion)  Sexual Function Turns Off (Impotency, Infertility)
  13. 13. Most of us remain in defense throughout our lives, and the higher more evolved brain does not have the opportunity to develop its unique properties and evolve new strategies for experiencing and responding to life.
  14. 14. “The secret to our health and happiness lies in our successful adjustment to the ever-changing conditions on this globe and in our lives. The penalties or consequences for failure in this great process of adaptation is an imbalance leading to disease and/or unhappiness.” Dr. Hans Selye – Stress Researcher / Expert

  19. 19. Mental/Emotional Wellness Illness Health Disease No Symptoms Symptoms Physical / Chemical
  20. 20. the neural subsystem • the “master control centre” • consists of: brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves • coordinates all bodily functions (breathing, digestion, elimination, etc.) • stores and/or dissipates energy in the body “Is there clear communication?”
  21. 21. active subsystem • muscles • tendons • tension storage Is there proper motion?
  22. 22. passive subsystem • skull, vertebrae, bones • discs • ligaments Is There Proper Alignment?
  23. 23. emotional subsystem • adds flavour or “sets the tone” to the active, passive and neural subsystems “Am I Safe?”
  24. 24. life expression  In order for you to express life fully and have optimal health, co-ordination of these 4 subsystems is imperative: - NEURAL - ACTIVE - PASSIVE - EMOTIONAL “Am I Connected?”
  25. 25. the goal . . . When you experience the freedom of a spine and nervous system clear of tension and interference, the natural health and innate healing ability of body and mind are restored, allowing you to be who you truly are: a creative, self-healing human being growing physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and socially.
  26. 26. a solution… network spinal analysis: NSA is a cutting edge technique and analysis which allows your body and brain to connect and develop strategies for dealing with life more effectively.
  27. 27. network spinal analysis  Low force technique designed to strengthen the connection between the mind/body which assists the brain in developing new strategies to: - Dissipate tension from your spine and nervous system. - Adapt to stress. - Make healthier choices. - Experience greater wellbeing.
  28. 28. network spinal analysis  Create a more self-correcting and self-reliant spine.  Connect with the body’s natural rhythms.  Network Care is an EVIDENCE-BASED APPROACH TO WELLNESS AND BODY AWARENESS.
  29. 29. NSA research  Research at the University of California, Irvine demonstrated that practice members in Network Care reported significant improvement in:  Physical Health and symptoms  Emotional/Mental Health and symptoms  Stress, and Life Enjoyment A unique Wellness Index was developed to assess these categories for overall quality of life.
  30. 30. 76% percent of the over 2,800 practice members improved in every category. Although physical symptoms changed most often within the first couple of months, practice members reported their overall life enjoyment and quality of life continuing to improve year after year.

  32. 32.  The Wellness approach is believed to foster a heightened sense of personal responsibility for one’s health and a greater sense of participation in evaluating the benefits of care and the personal transformation that occurs as care progresses
  33. 33. levels of care  Basic Care – (1a, 1b, 1c and 2a) “connect & release” “discover”  Intermediate Care – (2b, 2c) “transform”  Advanced Care “awaken”
  34. 34. goals of level one care  to initiate spinal recovery  to gain an awareness of your spine  to teach the brain to find the body, detect tension and increase breath  development of the spinal gateway  development and awareness of the respiratory wave
  35. 35. Major Benefits of NSA  Melt down of tension from the past.  Increased energy in the present.  Establish appropriate level of adaptative response to handle stress in the future.
  36. 36. Things you can do to speed your healing:  Listen To Your Body  Respect the frequency of your visits – recommendations are based on you receiving the fastest and best results  Attend Advanced Level Orientations – as you progress through care, more advanced orientations will be offered to enhance your results in each level
