Spinal Organization and Nervous System Coherence Linked to Improved Health and Wellbeing Outcomes

Spinal Organization and Nervous System Coherence Linked to Improved Health and Wellbeing Outcomes

A recently published article in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine evidences novel physiologic properties in the human spine associated with the Network wave. This phenomenon has potential to become a new measure of central nervous system health, and may have significant implications towards recovery from spinal cord injury.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – (September 30, 2016) – The Association for Reorganizational Healing Practice (ARHP), this week announced the release of a new, comprehensive scientific paper demonstrating the Network Wave as a unique central pattern generator in the spine.

The paper, featured in the prestigious Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, finds that surface electromyographic (sEMG) research shows that the movement of the musculature of the spine during the Network Wave phenomenon contains the mathematical properties of a central pattern generator (CPG). This may be the first CPG discovered in the spine unrelated to locomotion. Since 1997, the Network Wave has been studied in several research universities, and determined to be a repeatable and unique phenomenon.

“The research demonstrates that the Network Wave is truly a novel central pattern generator in the spine,” said Dr. Simon Senzon, lead author of the article. “This has far reaching implications for optimizing spine and nervous system function, including spinal cord injury research.”

The article was officially released in the July 2016 issue of the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. It was conceptualized, researched, and authored by Simon Senzon, Donny Epstein, and Dan Lemberger. The article provides a narrative review and explanation of the research on the Network spinal wave’s unique properties visibly observed in association with Network Spinal Analysis care. The phenomenon has been associated with greater spinal energy efficiency, and increasing levels of nervous system organization through a series of levels of care. The article additionally proposes potential directions for spinal and central nervous research, and applications where nervous system coherence has reliable and predictable measures for health care practice.

“Three decades of research has led to this monumental paper on the Network Wave,” stated Dr. Donny Epstein, Association for Reorganizational Healing President and article co-author. “The Network Wave continues to be shown as a profound mechanism towards improved health, greater adaptability and the possibility of a new baseline for human function.”

The ARHP is an international professional organization, advancing the practice of Reorganizational Healing. Practices currently supported by the ARHP include Network Spinal Analysis Care and Somato Respiratory Integration Wellness Education. The ARHP currently has members across North and South America, Australia, and Europe.
