Donald E. Ingbar, B.A., M.A., M.Phil., M.D. and Ph.D., has proven tensegrity at the cellular level. He states in The Architecture of Life (pdf version here), "An astoundingly wide variety of natural systems, including carbon atoms, water molecules, proteins, viruses, cells, tissues and even humans and other living creatures, are constructed using a common form of architecture known as tensegrity. The term refers to a system that stabilizes itself mechanically because of the way in which tensional and compressive forces are distributed and balanced within the structure....an increase in tension in one of the members results in increased tension in members throughout the structure--even ones on the opposite side...The principles of tensegrity apply at essentially every detectable size scale in the body. At the macroscopic level, the 206 bones that constitute our skeleton are pulled up against the force of gravity and stabilized in a vertical form by the pull of tensile muscles, tendons and ligaments... In other words, in the complex tensegrity structure inside every one of us, bones are the compression struts, and muscles, tendons and ligaments are the tension-bearing members."

NSI uses the model of tensegrity to adjust the adjustment, to give a "well-delivered" adjustment.
