Want to know a little more about Emotions and Thoughts...?

Emotions are the result of feelings generated by chemical changes activated in the body by repeated thoughts or images at either a subconscious or conscious level. Generally we are completely unaware as to how we are fuelling our emotions them.

  • Your emotions can be triggered by feelings, words, pictures and sound that are real or imagined, conscious or unconsciously.
  • Frequently our current emotional responses are the result of earlier events, traumas or subconscious beliefs.
  • Our bodies are actually the expression of what we hold to be true in our subconscious minds.
  • Our emotions are part of us but they are not us We each have the ability to alter our emotion state
  • What if you had the ability to change your emotional state primarily by changing your thinking?
  • To change your life you have to change your thoughts. Thats right you have the power to change your thoughts! Your thoughts do not control you. You control your thoughts.


So let me help you to understand how you can take charge of your life and easily release and overcome stress, live a life free from constant stress and rediscover a healthier happier life.

N.E.T. is based on a proven combination of the latest western scientific research, and techniques used in Eastern healing. By acknowledging the relationship between the bodys emotional health, environmental toxicity, nutritional balance and structural integrity, patients around the world have been able to enjoy better health and well being.
