Upon walking into the office of Network Wellness Center of Charlotte, you are immediately enveloped with a feeling of respect and excitement. Respect for where you are within your internal and external healing and excitement for the transformation that Network Spinal Analysis offers. Between the fun music and the welcoming demeanor of Dr. Matt Lyon, a feeling of trust and happiness is a natural side effect.
Dr. Lyon is professional and goes much deeper than just chiropractic care. He is an empathetic listener and works with you to get to the heart of why your pain is showing up in physical form. Unlike traditional chiropractors, Dr. Lyon helps you focus your attention and your breath on key areas along your spine that have become closed off and are causing pain. He does not participate in the conventional cracking and popping, but rather uses gentle pressure along contacts in the neck and back to access a connection between the brain and body to promote healing.
Additionally, Dr. Lyon uses a technique called Somato (body) Respiratory (breath) Wellness in his practice. He works with you to move breath through your body while verbally or mentally increasing awareness of blocks, judgment or negative thought associated with areas of pain. While participating in this, I sometimes got the sense of emotional release like you would during a hard, concentrated workout. An intense focus on the breathe combined with certain movements to wind up your emotions around feeling stuck, angry, sad, etc, followed by a compassionate look into those areas can give you just the right amount of awareness to begin letting go.
Taking a unique approach to care, Dr. Lyon’s sessions are called Entrainments. This means that often you are in a room with two to three other patients. Have you ever had coffee with a friend who was really excited about their day? Once you said your goodbyes, you felt yourself uplifted and feeling more positive, right? This is similar to entrainment. As Dr. Lyon works on you, each of you takes on the healing and release of each other, allowing you to heal faster.
At the heart of his treatments, Dr. Lyon focuses on his patients in their entirety. Providing a safe, caring environment for you physically and emotionally, you become aware that sometimes physical pain is not just about an injury or discomfort within the body. Rather, it is often more about why your body responded to the incident in the way it did in the first place. Dr. Lyon is a master at looking at the core of your discomfort and helping you to access the necessary awareness to allow healing to happen.
