The Office

 The Historic Cota-Knox Building

The Historic Cota-Knox Building

Dr. Watts' office is a welcoming and relaxed environment. Once a residence, the Historic 'Cota-Knox' building, located at 914 Anacapa st. was built of bricks that were used as ballast in the ships that came into town in the 1800's.  One of the oldest brick buildings in town, it is now part of the California State Park system that is in the same block as the famous Presidio, in Old Town Santa Barbara. In the mid 1800's, it was the residence and office of a former civil war surgeon. The residential feel is maintained, as the waiting room is more like a living room. Some of my clients like to use it as a safe place to meet their kids after school, and dogs are always welcome to come in and get a drink from the water bowl in the kitchen.



I’ve been receiving Network Care for over 12 years. Working with Eric Watts, DC has been a great experience. Eric’s professionalism and sensitivity made me feel safe and in competent hands from my first appointment. I feel that Eric is very knowledgeable and comprehensive in his work. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Eric Watts is quite possibly the most caring, conscientious, and kind professional I have met in any walk of life. He has helped me out over the years not just with his chiropractic skills, but also with his general knowledge of medical and health promotion matters. He has a gentle touch and provides that is in distinct contrast to the bone-crunching way that chiropractors are sometimes falsely portrayed.

I never believed in lighter force chiropractic treatment ‘til I went to Dr. Watts... Some of his work is quite traditional - sacral especially - and excellent. Some of it works like magic... And it’s AMAZING! Additionally, he has me address the root causes (in my heart and mind) as he works... So I leave feeling better physically and emotionally... WOW!
Thank you Eric!!!

The Method

Network spinal analysis

Network Spinal Analysis is a system of adjusting the spine which above all, honors a patient’s own ability to be it’s best healer, and uses tell tale signs that the body shows us, such as posture, tension, and subluxation patterns, to apply the least amount of force necessary to effect the greatest result at any given time.

At the same time, by starting with light force, our bodies can literally re-learn how to better unwind our own tensions. You become empowered to heal, which can be incredibly profound, and the results can be amazing, and long lasting. - Dr. Watts
