Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET) is a mind-body stress reduction technique that uses a method of finding and removing neurological inbalances related to the physiological effect of unresolved stress. NET is a tool that helps improve mental and physical health (www.netmindbody.com).
NET is a proven blend of the latest scientific research and centuries-old Eastern healing techniques. NET also acknowledges the relationship between the body’s emotional health, environmental toxicity, nutritional balance and structural integrity.
We used to think emotions resided entirely in their brain. Now we know other parts of the body can hold emotions too. Ever felt butterflies in your stomach before a speech, referred to something as a “pain in the neck” or felt a “lump in your throat”? Emotions are transmitting through our body in the form of neuropeptides, (microscopic proteins that carry information from the nerve to a target organ) these proteins permeate every cell in your body. If you have unresolved emotional trauma it can and will eventually cause dysfunction in a related organ system. For example the lung is affected by grief, the liver by anger, the kidney and bladder for fear.
We have all had times when we have found ourselves over-reacting to someone’s comment or the thought of an event. Or we just can’t get a certain situation out of our mind. Did you ever wonder why you react in the same way over and over to stressful situations with your spouse, children or your work? This happens because our subconscious brain has gone back to an earlier “similar event” in our lives, noted the emotional reaction that occurred at the time and reacted from the age you were when you had that first experience. After all you survived that event, therefore if you react the same way you’ll survive this event, this reinforces a destructive pattern.
Through NET we can help by resolving the original emotional event, this allow us to react to the situation, from our current age and experience level, in a more appropriate and healthier manner.
NET providers have great ability to help your body resolve physical and behavioural stress-related conditions, although it is important to take note that NET does not cure or heal you, but rather, NET removes blocks to the natural vitalism of the body, “allowing” the body to repair itself naturally.
