What is NET
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is a mind-body technique that 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 imbalances in the part of the nervous system called the limbic system, and is 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 Neuro Emotional Technique
Chronic Illness that does not resolve after undergoing standard or natural treatment often has an underlying stress component that is creating distress in the body. We can use Neuro Emotional Technique to pinpoint and release old stuck stress patterns, which we call Neuro Emotional Complexes (NECs). When the body is relieved of layers of old stress, or NECs, it frees up the body’s energy to heal itself.
What Causes a Neuro Emotional Complex to form?
From birth to age 7 our psych develops and gets pretty much set, and events during that time, have a big impact on how we pattern our stress responses and emotions after that. Traumas that occur during those formative years most often become “stuck” meaning the emotions associated with them don’t finish processing on their own, and instead become stored physiologically in our bodies. Have you heard the term our issues are in our tissues? Emotions and the stress they cause become our anxiety, our chronic pain, etc. They contribute to inflammation and degeneration in the body, just like other toxins from our diets and environment also contribute to inflammation.
With the Neuro Emotional Technique 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 and neck pain
- Chronic TMJ and jaw pain and tension
- IBS, constipation, and diarrhea
- Fertility challenges
- Anxiety and depression
- Food sensitivities
- Relationship challenges
- Workplace stress
- Brain Fog
- CIRS (Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome)
- Muscle pain, twitching, spasms
What to Expect during your NET session
Manual Muscle Testing (MMT) is used to find which energy channel or 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. I love how it gives a different perspective and can help prioritize
