Dr. Lawrence G. Stern
Network Spinal Analysis Practitioner
Dr. Stern is a chiropractor with over 35 years in private practice. Focused on wholeness, he has a unique and integrative approach to health and well-being.
Over the decades, Dr. Stern has trained in Chiropractic, Sports Medicine, Network Spinal Analysis (NSA), Corporate Wellness, Personal Development, Leadership Training and The Hakomi Method (mindfulness-centered somatic psychotherapy).
Once a highly competitive soccer and baseball player, he applied his love of sports and knowledge of sports medicine as a member of the medical teams for the World Maccabiah Games in Israel, World Tae Kwon-Do Championships in
New York City and the Olympic Games in Atlanta, just to name a few.
He received his Chiropractic Degree from New York Chiropractic College in 1984 and Certificate in Sports Medicine (CCSP) in 1985. In 1996, Dr. Stern attended a Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) conference and listened while Dr. Donald Epstein, the developer of Network Care, spoke about the future of healing in Chiropractic. He was so inspired by “Donny’s” words and the dramatic results he witnessed, that he knew then that Network Care would be his new lifelong calling in Chiropractic.
In 2003, Dr. Stern received his advanced certification in Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) and is one of 300 + practitioners worldwide to earn advanced certification in NSA.
His primary focus on NSA, the key component of his heart-centered integrated approach, reflects his dedication to improving all aspects of his patients' lives. His methodology embraces a new paradigm, called “Reorganizational Healing”, (ROH) which is the innovative new model behind all his healing work. ROH, a unique approach to individual growth, wellness and behavioral change, developed by NSA founder Dr. Donny Epstein, helps patients raise their baseline function, behavior and energetic expression to create and sustain optimal health. It is in this arena that Dr. Stern's passion is most evident. He continually strives to help those in his care realize their own inherent perfect state of health and wellness.
Dr. Stern is also a practitioner for The Breathe Network, an organization whose mission is to support Survivors of Sexual Violence by providing an integrated list of healing arts practitioners throughout the country.
The Breathe Network’s primary goal is to ensure survivors across the country can identify a sliding-scale, trauma-informed, healer for support. In order to achieve this, The Breathe Network provides both online education and in-person training for health practitioners, reinforcing the skills needed to create a survivor-centered, trauma-informed practice.
The different healing modalities offered by The Breathe Network holistically address the impact of sexual violence on the body, mind and soul. The body can be a vital healing resource; as symptoms develop as natural responses to trauma. The ultimate goal is to help survivors identify their innate resilience.
Dr. Stern’s 30+ years of experience as a Wellness Chiropractor and a Network Spinal Analysis Practitioner helps him provide survivors with new freedom, ease and flexibility, by performing subtle entrainments (or adjustments) to their nervous system. These entrainments help patients recover joy, the ability to be present and mindful, and re-experience being fully alive, by releasing the emotions and defense physiology that can arise during victim based internal and external conversations. Dr. Stern works with patients to recognize their innate ability to heal and ultimately reclaim their own power.
