Network Spinal Analysis, or Light Touch Adjustment

Carmen Mazza

Dr. Carmen Mazza, D.C. practices low force light touch Network Spinal Analysis at Light Touch Family Chiropractic, in Tucson. Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) is also referred to as Network Chiropractic because it views the body as a functional network in which everything is closely linked to everything else. NSA is a very gentle chiropractic technique that consists of a series of light contacts with the thumb in order to create an adjustment.

“With NSA, the areas primarily addressed are the occiput at the base of the back of the skull, the cervical vertebrae in the neck and the sacrum at the base of the spine. These areas are important because the meninges, or the coverings of the spinal cord, attach to them,” explains Mazza. “When tension is present, the meninges act like strings on a marionette puppet that elongate or stretch the spinal cord, creating what is called a facilitated subluxation. Typically, this type of subluxation is caused by chemical or emotional stress from which the body-mind could not recover.”

The philosophy of NSA is based upon the body’s ability to self-regulate or adapt to life stresses. As the body expresses greater awareness, ease and flexibility, it can learn to bounce back very quickly from stressful events.

Mazza has worked on babies, children, pregnant women and adults. She is intuitive and practices with a holistic mindset, taking into account the role the body, mind and spirit play on one another. Her objective is to help people become more empowered and evolve physically, mentally and spiritually.
