Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is a mind-body approach that focuses on the treatment of stress-related conditions. NET is based on mind-body techniques that recognise and alleviate neurological imbalances that are associated with physiology and unresolved stress. It determines the relationship among emotional health, environmental toxicity, nutritional balance, and structural integrity of the body to help improve physical and behavioural conditions.
NET works with the nervous system and neurological pathways to relieve unresolved stress in both the present and the past. Located in the brain is the limbic system which comprises of various brain structures and is responsible for the regulation of basic emotions such as sadness, fear, and pleasure. Also, it stores or encodes memories from past emotions. Whenever the brain thinks that the person is in danger (whether they are or not), or whenever a person is faced with a similar stimuli to something negative that has happened in the past, the limbic system lights up. In response to this, it causes stress chemicals to be released in the body. Experiencing these emotions over time may lead to formation of diseases and illnesses.
NET is an holistic approach to wellbeing that focuses on identifying the underlying stress patterns and utilizes the acupuncture system and allow the practitioner to help neutralize these stress patterns. This leads to the extinction of the stress response at the old memory (stimuli). Not only NET helps with emotional patterns and trauma, it also helps with physical pain related to a past emotional event.
NET locates these trapped or conditioned memory loops by using simple muscle testing techniques. It allows the practitioner to identify the body’s stand in relation to the unresolved emotional event or trauma. To proceed with the necessary adjustments and corrections, the client is requested to form a mental picture of the original triggering event. Then, the body will assume an emotional state that will align with the originating feelings. The practitioner will make gentle contact on the specific body point linked with the unresolved emotional response. The body will then release the emotion associated with the event.
NET is effective in the treatment of various behaviour stress related and physical conditions which include:
It should be remembered that NET is not a cure to heal the patient, but rather, a tool that helps in removing blocks to the body’s natural vitalism, which will allow it to naturally heal itself.
