How is Craniosacral therapy different from Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) Chiropractic?

Recently I was told by someone that what they did,Craniosacral therapy, was the same as NSA Chiropractic. It made me think that there is a need and a great opportunity to clarify what the differences are.

Craniosacral therapy was developed by a genius from the Osteopathic profession, Dr. John Upledger,D.O..

Using light sustained touch, the Craniosacral practitioner's main emphasis is to harmonize the circulation of vascular and cerebrospinal fluids; to release tension off of the meningeal system, harmonize mobility of the cranial bones and the sacrum and to improve circulation of micro-currents.

All of which are tremendous contributions to health and well-being.

NSA was created and developed by a Chiropractic genius Dr. Donald Epstein,D.C..

Dr. Epstein has created a system of light touch chiropractic which greatly enhances the progress of the neuroplasticity of the nervous system, in measurable and predictable ways that have never before been observed in living beings.

So much so that several major American universities have studied, including the University of Southern California (USC) and University of California Irvine School of Medicine, the unique up-grade in coherence of the nervous system obtained with NSA care.

In an Irvine University study, individuals who received NSA care had documented improvements in all categories of life (Health, Life Enjoyment, Job…) to an unprecedented degree.

In my opinion NSA boost how your spinal cord, (which is the bridge between body and brain), does its job, so that consistent progression of abilities and performances arise.

Your spinal cord is your "back brain", it collects, selects and organizes the sensations from all of your body before it even reaches your brain, (it gives rise to the sense of who you are in relation to your environment, both inside and outside of your body.)

NSA also boost the neuroplasticity of your brain, meaning you do more with less effort and greater energy, again with a consistent progression and optimization of its performances.

Since the brain and spinal cord control most of what happens in the body (we haven’t discussed the gut brain), NSA helps your super computers to enhance the healing of your energy, your pain, your cells, your stress, your emotional range and flexibility, your drive…

As a side note, NSA is taught to doctors of Chiropractic and not to the general public.

Finally on a personal note, I would add that I have 28 years of clinical expertise and 10 000 hours of graduate and post graduate education as a Chiropractor and that this does make a difference as well.

What I seek to accomplish with my patients/healing partners, is to have them be able to design their life according to their deepest aspirations so that they can have an extra-ordinary life of joy.

Super energy rich day to you!

The Neurology of Success:

The Neurology of Success:

Dr. Donald Epstein, creator of Network Spinal Analysis, once said “what you feel you lack the most is what you should give-out the most ”.                  This in my opinion is a guarantee for spiritual success; we are after all “spiritual beings having a physical experience”, and priorities matter.

My priority is to help my Patients aka Healing Partners, to reach greater levels of life Enjoyment through Integral Health.

Interestingly enough I was at a professional seminar this year and at one point the doctor giving the seminar detected that I was resonating some sadness. This at first got me thinking, “am I a fraud”?
Here I am, wanting to promote life enjoyment and I am having difficulties calling-up and resonating Joy.

Then I realized that I needed to exercise my “joy muscle” in a novel and more effective way.

So to be congruent with my professional purpose and my spiritual success, I wrote for my Healing Partners my two latest presentations on what I call         “The Neurology of Success”.

They are about how to cultivate, through neurological strategies, elevated energy emotions and how to hard wire them in your cerebral and body architecture; so that you can design your life based on the greatness of the unique talents you have, and generate extra-ordinary life enjoyment for you and others.

This being said I did not reinvent the wheel, however this is my unique Gazpacho and integration of data that I am going to be putting forth.

Ready to Enjoy your Summer with a Spring in your Step and One in your Brain?

It is not uncommon for people to have a hard time tolerating the heat because of Adrenal stress.


Your blood pressure changes up or down, and you may have associated light headedness.
You experience cravings for salty or sugary foods.
You are a lot more prone to allergies.
You may feel sluggish and tired or waking up at night between 4 & 6 am.
Struggling to get through the day, or anxious or unable to re-frame your thinking.
Experience more low back pain or increase pain where you were already hurting.
You may have cramps or Charley horses in the calf muscles.
You may feel more energy in the evenings.


Among the many functions of the Adrenal glands, (aka the stress glands, the little Chinese shaped hats that sit on top of the Kidneys, located in your low back area), is the fact that they contribute to the control of  the heart’s flow and output of blood. When it is hot, your heart works harder so you can stay cool and not feel dizzy.
Anytime you solicit a gland to work and if it is already out of sorts, it is like whipping a tired horse.

Another remarkable thing the Adrenals do is to control how much water is in and out of the cells so that there is optimal exchange of “Goods”.
When the Adrenals are not happy, you tend to accumulate water and gain fat more characteristically in the arms, legs and face (Moon Face.)
The Adrenals also affect your brain by producing Adrenaline and Cortisol, both of which influence other brain messenger chemicals and or circuits which will affect your mood and drive.



Every organ is like a factory, it needs raw materials to produce goods. The following is a basic list of raw materials that the Adrenals especially like:

VIT B : 1 .
2 . 3 . 5 . 6 . FOLATE, Brewers Yeast, Mushrooms, Rare Red Meat.
Drink Water: 2 - 3 L / DAY
OMEGA3 Type fats, it is best to buy capsules of sardine or anchovies oil. I recommend “Optimal EFAs” from Biotics Research, “EYEQ” from Equizen or “VEGEPA”  from Ingennus.
PROTEINS: 1.2 g / Kg of body weight. Chicken, Turkey, Eggs, Oats, RAW Pumpkin seeds, almonds, Avocados, Bananas, Lima Beans, Blue Berries, Spirulina.
ELECTROLYTES: Sea Salt ¼ of a tea spoon in a glass of water 1-2x/DAY, Organic Coconut Water
BOSWELLIA Infusions and use Turmeric spice on your foods.
EAT BREAKFAST!!! Even if you are not hungry, eat something with a quality protein, fat and carbohydrate.
Marmalade on brioche or toast with coffee will send you into a hypoglycemic spiral and kick the poor Adrenals and Pancreas right where it hurts.

Receive Network Spinal Analysis Chiropractic “adjustments”,
it is one of the most powerful methods I know to help your brain to become calmer and coherent so it can regulate properly the Adrenals; and defrost and release your low back, so that the Adrenals receive all the nerve energy they need to work right.

If all this information seems a bit overwhelming, I will be clarifying and expanding on it during my next conference on Tuesday June 16th at my office.

Energy Rich week to Youhu   :)
