If you know me, you know that I like to try, what some would refer to as “weird and cooky sh*t.” I figure, we're only here for a short while, and I can't make up my mind about things without trying them first. So it's not a surprise that during Jen Mazer's, Manifest it Live workshop, I signed up for something called Network Spinal Analysis or NSA. Here is a video explaining the work. Discovered by Donny Epstein, NSA is a mode of releasing stored energy that builds up in the spine throughout the history of your life. Tony Robins swears by it. Tony is heaven sent. Therefore "Indi must try," said my monkey mind. 

I was led to the corner of the room where a row of chiropractic beds were positioned. A lovely lady gave me a 5-minute sample NSA session. She made her way to various people on the beds and barely tapped random points along their spine before she got to me. The taps felt like a flick of a finger gently pressing down at different points along my spine. I felt nothing that first session but I was intrigued when the practitioner told me about the patterns she felt in my spine. She commented on events that must have transpired early on in my life and how they were reflected the story that my spine was currently telling. She was right about everything. "Say no more you wizard," I thought in my head, and just like that, I handed over my money and purchased a package of 8 sessions. My fiancé says it best; I am a sales persons wet dream. 

My first full session was off the chain. Folks, seriously, for barely feeling a thing on that bed other than slight finger flicks on my back, the feeling that I felt right after the session was euphoric. I am not sure what it was but for the next 2 hours, I could not help but smile. According to the practitioner, I had released massive amounts of pent-up tension. I felt like I could breathe a little deeper as well. It was as though there was more room in my body for air. The feeling of euphoria could be explained by an increased flow of oxygen to my brain. I was hooked. The next couple of sessions were relaxing, but not nearly as impactful. In fact, I still have a couple of sessions remaining. As I write this, I am wondering if today is the day that I drop by for a very overdue entrainment. 


  • It's a very relaxing 40 minutes with great meditative music in the background
  • The facility is beautiful and well kept
  • Some people cry and moan, it's a lil' awkward but hey, that's their process
  • Sessions vary in results; you may experience euphoria or a release of emotion and other sessions might be underwhelming
  • NSA is a very gentle tapping of the spine, does not hurt and is not uncomfortable
