Diving In

You can’t learn to swim by looking at a lake.

Sitting on the shoreline, observing the water, and studying the technique of other swimmers will never teach you what it’s like to dive in. It is only by taking the leap that we can know how it feels to be immersed in a different element.

The ability to experience life with fullness often requires the energy for courage to do something new or uncomfortable. The extent to which we can tap into this energy and let it fuel the experience of life is directly related to the integrity of the spine and the nervous system.

The quality of the relationships we have with ourselves and others, the choices we make, how effectively our physiology functions, and how well we feel and move is all mediated by the clarity and the coherence of the nervous system. This is the reason chiropractic is interested in the spine and improvements in these quality of life measures are a hallmark of the discipline of Network Spinal Analysis.

It’s one thing to get your feet wet, but the best way to explore the breadth and the depth of the Lake of Life is to dive in.

See you in the water.
