The Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is a methodology used to normalize both unresolved physical and behavioral patterns in the body. In fact, NET sees these physical and behavioral patterns as being two sides of the same coin. This is because the terms "mind" and "body" are words descriptive of two aspects of the organism as a whole, just as "heads" and "tails" are words descriptive of two aspects of a coin. Inseparable. Neuro Emotional Technique is a way to bridge the Mind-Body complex. NET is a method designed to address emotional stress that are effecting the body and physical stress that are effecting the mind.
The object of NET is to address the neuro-emotional complex (NEC). NECs are negative pattern that were learned over time that interfere with normal Mind-Body function. NET practitioners are trained to assist the body's healing process by identifying and balancing unresolved emotional influences -- and the compromised physiological underpinnings of emotions. It's a true mind-body approach.
A simple example of a neuro-emotional complex (NEC):
A patient who is under a lot of pressure at work may know that they are under a lot of stress and even be aware of fatigue. But, they may not be aware that their low back pain is a physiological response to the stress. Traditional treatments like medications, chiropractic, physical therapy, etc. will offer this type of patient minimal relief. Since the underlying cause of the low back pain is coming from the mind not the body.
Emotions are traditionally thought of as being normal functions of human beings and normally pose no physiological problem. Occasionally, emotional trauma in the presence of a neurological or meridian deficit can cause a physical response in the body, which cannot be remedied by addressing the body alone. NET seeks to normalize this pattern by physiological change; a result of a physical intervention versus a traditional talk-it-out approach.
NET is a truly holistic approach used to help re-establish balance in the body, making use of the neuro-mechanisms of speech, general semantics, emotions, as well as chiropractic principles, laws of acupuncture's meridian system, muscle testing, cutaneous reflex points, principles of traditional psychology, and more recent innovations.
