What is NET
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) has been practiced for 35 years by chiropractors, acupuncturists, psychotherapists, nurses, and doctors around the world. It is based on the theories of East Asian (Chinese) Medicine including the organ systems, meridians, and Five Elements.
NET is a stress-relieving procedure that helps resolve neurological in the part of the nervous system called the limbic system related to the mind-body physiology of recurring stress patterns.
It is a tool to bypass the neocortex or “thinking brain” and access the subconscious or “mammalian brain” and is scientifically validated including studies showing changes in the brain before and after the NET procedure.
Benefits of NET
Chronic Illness that does not resolve after undergoing standard or natural treatment often has an underlying stress component that is creating the dis-stress in the body. We can use NET to pinpoint and release old stuck stress.
Anxiety and other mental health challenges often contain stress components as well. With the NET process we pinpoint where the energy is stuck, and using the breathing technique we bring the body to a place where it can finish processing old stuck emotions.
NET is really helpful for many chronic problems. Here are a few that we’ve had success with.
- chronic low back pain
- chronic shoulder pain
- chronic TMJ and jaw pain and tension
- IBS, constipation, and diarrhea
- Fertility challenges
- Food sensitivities
- Relationship challenges
- Brain Fog
- muscle pain, twitching, spasms
What to Expect during your NET session
Manual Muscle Testing (MMT) is used to find which meridian is involved with the chronic issue or stressful situation being addressed. NET covers Four Bases: Emotional, Nutritional, Toxins, and Structural. We identify which of these four needs correction, and use a special breathing technique while connecting to Meridian Access Points (MAP) on the wrists to key into the affected acupuncture meridian. If needed, a homeopathic spray will be prescribed to use to continue assisting the treatment over the next couple of weeks so the pattern of disruption can fully resolve.
At-Home Stress Support
The First Aid Stress Tool is something anyone can do at home for themselves, whenever a stressful situation comes up, when there’s pain, or any situation that needs relief immediately. This is not NET, as NET takes place between practitioner and patient, however, this is similar and helps augment and supplement NET treatments, and can be shared with family and friends.
The Wellness Check Questionnaire is something I use with my patients to help assess where we need to focus our treatments, as well as to track improvements over the treatment course. It can indicate some useful homeopathic medicinals as well.
