Here I share what practice members tell me about their experiences, both while at the office for care, and in their lives...
I came to Dr Maureen Neskar with the goal of taking better care of myself during the challenging period of Covid-19 Omicron wave. Although I had visited chiropractors before, Dr Neskar introduced me to Network Spinal (NS) care.
After one month of entrainments, I noticed a difference in awareness in my spine and my entire body. this growth happened gradually, beginning on the treatment table and then continuing after I had left Dr Neskar's office. I gained more ease of breath and better posture. When I was out in the world facing a difficult situation, I now had a new way to acknowledge, deal with and diffuse the stress. NS care guides and empowers me to "correct" misalignments almost subconsciously. My sleep is deeper (not an insignificant achievement for a woman in her mid-fifties) and I am calmer despite the challenging times in which we are living. I appreciate the fact that Dr Neskar is patient with any questions I have and how what I am experiencing fits into my longer journey of self-care and thriving.
I look forward to each visit because NS is a very gentle physical modality. NS does increase my awareness to what I am feeling and what I bring to each session. It also allows me to be a full participant in my own care plan. Dr Neskar and NS are the right practitioner and the right form of care for me now. I will gratefully continue to build upon the progress made and the lessons I have learned about myself. I want to continue to grow with the goal of being the best person I can be.

Coming Home Trust Let Go Be Open
I came to see Dr Mo because I felt I was at a dead end. I came for relief of physical symptoms that included pain, reduction of mobility, and low energy. This limited my ability to engage in physical activity and life. I noticed others my age were now using canes and walkers but I wanted to choose a different path. I experienced a trustful practitioner who is not only passionate and astute in a healing modality but who is accurate and provides supportive solutions.l This allowed me to trust, to relax, to be open to new things and suggestions, and let go. I began to navigate out of my dead-end predicament. Patiently, over a short time, I noticed I felt more integrated within my body with a reduction of pain, increased in a subtly body and flexibility. I feel more centered and aligned including an increase in mobility and FREEDOM of movement. I stand and look different.
Surprisingly, I have gained new tools for further self-reflection and self-mastery. I have been able to become aware of negative rigid thinking patterns and to catch myself before spiraling down the "rabbit hole" of negative thinking.. Furthermore, I did not want negative thinking patterns to concretize permanently in my body.
Dr Mo has assisted me to act as my own "firstresponder" to my physical and mental challenges and a chance to re-frame my experience without self-sabotaging and cycling through old thinking and physical patterns.
I have gained an increase of mastery over my body and life, and experienced change, hope, and inspiration. I experience a sense of accomplishment and freedom to move forward not otherwise expected. I came Home.

On the suggestion of a friend, I visited Dr Neskar.
I was quick to anger and prone to injury. I wanted to exercise but I was constantly hurting myself. It felt like I was encased in cement. My body was armoured and I was always on guard. My posture was embarrassing.
I wanted to be better-for myself and for my children.
Since working with Dr. Neskar, my body has let go of years of stress. My outlook is optimistic. I fell resilient, strong and confident.
I continue because I always feel better after an entrainment-physically and mentally.

After many moths of care, my hygienist of 15 years remarked that I have never looked happier!
My inner child feels content and safe now. I feel younger and eager to engage in new things!
I have feelings now that I forgot about. A connection to who I was before life began its "lessons".
I have had a few months of care with Dr. Maureen and have felt some real changes. I met with my ex husband to talk over some issues. What normally would have turned into a disaster of arguing and crying, ended up being so positive. I felt strong, open and confident. This was HUGE for me! My stress has almost disappeared.
One day after an entrainment, I felt like a totally different person. I felt myself become open as opposed to my typical closed off self. I am finding myself to be more open to situations that used to scare me and I'm seeing a hopeful, happy future!
After a short time coming to see Dr. Maureen, I realize she is helping me to help myself with my thoughts and my emotions. In this process I feel the power growing to be more ME!
I have seen Dr. M for a couple of years. Now I can be present with uncomfortable feelings and emotions. I can avoid being reactive and can honour my decisions. Thank you new me!
I lost my independence after experiencing an episode of psychosis; lost my job and had to move home. After that I struggled for a long time.
I found Momentum to Wellness. Coming here to Dr. Maureen not only decreased my symptoms I am now fully independent and ready to start living again!
Today's visit (to Dr. Maureen) was like sending my body through a car wash...Removing "gunk" then coming out clean, refreshed and raring to go!
One time during an entrainment I felt tears but no sadness, like a release - surprising but wonderful!
I was able to take time away from work recently and did nothing! Normally I'd feel such guilt about not being "busy". But not this time! I felt like I was "living in the lap of luxury" - content.
After a short time in care, I've been feeling so good...at peace.
I feel so much better and stronger now after coming to Momentum to Wellness. Family and friends are commenting on how much better I look! I highly recommend NSA to improve health and well-being.
I have walked (and only short distances without rest) and stood pitched forward with my hands behind my back for support. Now, with treatments from Dr Maureen I am walking and standing more erect and am stronger! It feels wonderful!
During my entrainment, after some opening of energy in my neck area, I noticed a feeling of complete contentment with life that I have never experienced before.
It's an amazing process...it's so gentle but so POWERFUL!
So many things I've accomplished in the 2 years I 've seen Dr. Mo - I would recommend her services to anyone seeking to improve their health or simply get closer to the best version of themselves.
NSA has done wonders for me; improving my health, increasing my energy and encouraging life affirming choices!
Thank you Dr Mo for the immense contribution to my health, well-being and personal growth...a way of bringing Heaven to earth, which is how I feel when I'm at Momentum to Wellness...
I fety my energy move, my breath increase and deepen, my shoulders soften and my body relax. When I sat up after the session I could feel my body continue to move and shift...WOW!
I notice when I focus on what is feeling good in my body, rather than what hurts, I feel the pleasant sensations and movements my body makes to drop tension.
I have finally realized that I don't have to fix everything at once. I can do it little by little. It's a big relief!
I continue to come for care because good things are happening to me!
Way back when I started NSA, I told Dr. Mo I needed to keep mobile and flexible. Recently after a senior's Yoga class, the leader came to congratulate me on my amazing flexibility.
Thank you Dr. Maureen. We did it!
I would recommend NSA to anyone seeking to improve their health or simply get closer to the best version of themselves.
There are so many things I have accomplished in recent years - I believe a lot of credit is due to NSA with Dr. Mo.

While on the table, I disassociated the throbbing in my head and on my left side to becoming a migraine, which always has happened the same way... and more importantly, I found that I enjoyed the heightened feeling I had. There was no resulting migraine.
With Dr. Neskar's guidance, I realized that we perpetuate the stories we tell ourselves. This new context of care draws a different repsonse, showing that those stories don't necessarily have to be the reality we're stuck in.
Maureen's gentle touch and spot on focus, not only helped my tender areas, but my mind and focus too.
While on the table I realized I need to delete the phrase: "Let it go"; it usually means "Let it go away".
But if I replace it with "Let it be"; it's more freeing, as it usually means
"Let it be as it is"...
When I become very present with what I am noticing (during care) and just stay there and "hang with it" in open curiosity, things begin to change.
2015 | as told to Dr. Maureen (DM)
I am very grateful for the care I receive at MTW and my spiritual path of Siddha yoga. They are transforming my life in ways I never imagined possible. Today, as I lay on the table, I had the realization of just how innately intelligent and wondrous the body is.
I have witnessed the change in my daughter's physical structure (while in care). After my father passed, I experienced severe stress which manifested in physical pain. Treatment at Momentum to Wellness is a body/mind experiential shift. I have become more aware of my physical structure and have acquired techniques to use when faced with stressful situations. My visits to Dr. Maureen are: relaxing, healing, genuine and I feel centered.
I've noticed how much more loose my body is; so much more relaxed and at ease. I don't feel as drained because I'm not fighting my body or my body tension. It's so incredibly freeing to move in ways I haven't in years! Wonderful!
2014 | Dr. Maureen
Being in the moment is hard for me. But the longer I am with Dr. Maureen, the greater my ability to do just that. I don't have to analyze everything to death. I can just acknowledge the situation and know it is temporary. It feels like freedom...It is freedom!
I had an "aha" moment! Instead of wracking my brain and wasting energy trying to figure out what I'd done to aggravate my back, I just acknowledged it. What a relief!
2014 | Dr. Maureen
Since beginning NSA, I have made many radical and long-lasting lifestyle changes, such as a change in my career, I lost over 20 pounds and have taken up running. I started not being able to run a kilometre and now participate in triathlons every year! I credit these changes to NSA and look forward to continue my journey.
2013 | Dr. Maureen
I have been coming to Momentum To Wellness, as a practice member, for over four years. Although I was only in my late 20's, when I started, I found myself tired and lacking energy. Now, I have an abundance of energy and satisfaction. I am profoundly more aware of my own self, both mind and body, and I have a greater connection with others too.
My heart is much more open to giving and receiving and my ability to trust has grown exponentially ~ and continues to grow. It's an exciting journey!
I'm so glad I took this path and look forward to the future and how I'll evolve through this work.
Dr. Maureen is an incredible guide and facilitator!
Recently, I was at home laying half awake...suddenly I started deep breathing just as I do when I'm on the table (as happens at Dr. Maureen's).
It felt great!!
Today in a couple of instances, I was able to bring some ease that existed in one part of my body into another area where I was holding tension...and it released!
When I started here at Momentum to Wellness I expected relief from pain (& this has helped tremendously) but I didn't expect so much internal and emotional transformation!
Recently I have had...strong feelings of looking at things in a different way ~ opening up to new angles ~ very powerful!
I am a Doubting Thomas by nature but when you start doing things that you claimed you would not do, face your fears, take ownership of your issues and your body copes better than it ever has, all doubt is erased.
My journey has just started. I am no longer scared of where it is going and (Dr.) Maureen is the reason why.
Before I started NSA I had really been going through a difficult time. I knew that I didn't want to have to rely on anti-depressants long term. I met Dr. Neskar in February 2012 and I've been off medication now for nearly 3 months. I feel amazing without it. Dealing with depression triggers and stresses of day to day life has become a lot easier to manage. I'm starting to live the life that I've always wanted, stress free!
I want to say that what is happening in these sessions supports where I am in my life right now and where I want to be, in ways both familiar and unfamiliar. What is happening feels right, true and yet it feels new and challenging. This work seems to be moving me towards a conscious reconnection with this powerful image of myself in ways that are just right for me now.
After 1 month of care here, a practice member expressed delight in the fact that she no longer reacts or "jumps" into stress during a "stressful" situation.
2012 | Dr. Maureen
A practice member e-mailed to let me know the day after her husband's first entrainment, he was "actually chuckling this morning", and this has not "happened in ages"!
2012 | Dr. Maureen
An 81 year-old practice member (who has been under NSA care for just under 2 years), shared her recent experience during her check-up with her GP she hadn't seen in 2 years. When the doctor entered the exam room and saw my practice member, she exclaimed, "Wow! You look great! In fact, this is the best that I've seen you look in Years!" My practice member smiled and chuckled to herself. Who said that getting older meant deteriorating!
2012 | Dr. Maureen
What a Powerful and Transformational entrainment (session)! I reached a new level of openness and breathing!
An 11-year old practice member writes:
Since I was young I have been having leg issues. My legs used to fall beneath me while I was running and playing, making me fall down, but since I have been seeing you for care my legs haven't played tricks on me. You are my hero. You are the one who helps me with my stress and I THANK YOU.
PS. Thanks a lot.
I have been seeing Dr. Mo for over a year. I find the results to be amazing. I actually WALK TALLER.
Thanx Dr Mo
Since coming to see Dr. Maureen I have been able to actually think during a "crisis" situation, instead of reacting in old and often inappropriate behaviours.
