The Sacred Seasons

Based on the principles of Reorganisational Healing, the approach we take at Spinewaves is designed to deliver sustainable healing. During your NetworkSpinal® care you will learn about and experience The Four Seasons of Wellbeing: Discover, Transform, Awaken and Integrate. These are integral to taking control of your life in a positive and sustainable way and will help you get the most out of your NSA sessions.

The first three seasons, Discover, Transform and Awaken, represent different periods or situations in your life and how you perceive and deal with them. They are cyclical in nature rather than sequential, so you can move between them according to what experiences you are having and how you need to respond.

The fourth season, Integrate, represents the ability to combine the stages in order to effectively and happily deal with various life circumstances with greater depth, ease and grace.

During your NSA care, we will help you identify which season you are in and teach you the practices and behaviours you can use to deal with your physical pain or emotional stresses.

In theory, The Four Seasons of Wellbeing can seem complex. But once you start to experience them in your body and apply them to your day-to-day life, you’ll be astonished at how well you’re able to cope with even the toughest of situations.

The Season of Discover – ‘Connect & Release’

Discover is when you know there is a problem but feel there is no solution. When you feel either physically or emotionally overwhelmed and nothing seems to be helping. These physical or emotional symptoms – either back pain, depression or anxiety – is your body telling you something is wrong.

This is when you need to Discover and uncover what’s really going on.

So rather than numbing or ignoring your symptoms, you learn to connect to what your body is trying to tell you and what it really needs. Then, and only then, can you begin the healing process.

During this stage we will help you to:

  • Reduce or eliminate stress
  • Improve the function of your spine and nervous system
  • Discover how your body and mind responds to life experiences
  • Connect to yourself and release stress through Somato Respiratory Integration

How is this achieved?

Tension builds up in the spine due to the various stresses of life; some combination of physical, chemical/nutritional, environmental, emotional/mental. During Discover Care the Respiratory Wave starts to develop as the breath starts to flow with more ease and the spine starts to relax out of the defensive posture which is caused by stress.

The Season of Transform – ‘Transform & Refine’

When you Discover through your body, you recognise you have a problem. When you Transform, you see that problem as an opportunity to take action and grow. It’s about changing your perspective from feeling like a victim to feeling empowered to heal yourself.

During Transform you will feel driven by an inner-momentum that turns problems into opportunities to thrive.

During this stage we will help you to:

  • Transform every symptom into fuel for positive change
  • Develop inner physical, emotional and mental strength
  • Be in control of your life
  • Create more empowering habits and behaviours

How is this achieved?

During Transform Care the SomatoPsychicWave starts to develop as the spinal joints and muscles also start to move with more ease and the spine starts to refine posture, becoming more coherent as two spinal oscillators start to develop and the wave moves further forward in the body. This wave is more dynamic and can feel quite liberating, often occurring synchronously with times of change, breakthroughs and resolutions.

The Season of Awaken – ‘Awaken & Expand’

Once you have Discovered your problem and Transformed it into fuel for positive action, you’re able to Awaken to life in a more fulfilling way. When you experience Awaken you recognise life’s possibilities and feel an unlimited sense of potential and opportunity.

During this season we will help you to:

  • Expand your perception, empowering you to find the gifts within stressful situations rather than the obstacles
  • Experience freedom, energy and happiness even in difficult situations
  • Realise your place and unique value in the world
  • Contribute to others in a significant way

How is this achieved?

Through Personal Growth and Development

NSA care promotes the ability to attain higher states of wellness, even if one is already healthy. It facilitates high-end human development and promotes higher organization in the human brain. In the higher levels of NSA care the Heart Oscillator starts to develop (initially seen as the chest lifting) as well as the two spinal oscillators and people report a greater sense of gratitude, joy, awe and spiritual connection.

The Season of Integrate – ‘Transcend & Include’

Once you have learnt to move between Discover, Transform and Awaken, you’ll be able to combine the seasons in order to effectively respond to the moment. You’ll understand the inner resources you have available and how they can help you experience life in the most effortless and enjoyable way.
