NET (Neuro-Emotional Technique)

NET or Neuro-Emotional Technique is a methodology used to normalize unresolved physical and/or behavioral patterns that have become “locked” in your body.

Emotions are healthy human functions and normally pose no long-lasting physiological or psychological problems. In the past, people related to emotions as being primarily psychological and thought they were located only in the brain. Researchers have now proven that emotions are physiological and actually travel in many areas in the body in the form of biochemicals called neuropeptides.

It is human nature to have an emotional response to a significant event in your life. It is also human nature for our bodies to return to a “normal” state at some point after a significant event. Sometimes, however, we can have a neuro-physiological deficit at the time of a significant event and an emotional response can become “locked in our bodies.” We call these “locked” emotional responses Neuro Emotional Complexes (NECs). NECs have reflex patterns very much like the conditioned response that Pavlov documented so well in his experiments with dogs and the ringing bells. Eventually, our “locked” negative emotional responses (conscious or unconscious) can manifest as symptoms. The result is ill health or an imbalance in one or more areas in our lives.

Could someone have an NEC and not know it?

The answer is, yes it is possible. For example, a boy might be forced against his will to get an injection in the doctor’s office. This boy becomes an adult and feels tense each time he goes into the doctor’s office and does not have the slightest idea why. Physical and/or emotional symptoms associated with this NEC may result in increased pain and dysfunction.

NET works with the ancient principles of Oriental Medicine using the different emotions that relate to the different organs or meridian system. For example, fear is associated with the kidneys and anger is associated with the liver, etc.

NET is not a talk it out therapy. Nor is it a substitute for psychological or psychiatric therapy. In NET, all memory events in an NEC are considered “Emotional Reality”, because these events may or may not correspond with actual or historic reality. For example, some NEC’s may be associated with imagined emotional events such as nightmares or misconceptions.

NET seeks to normalized neurological imbalances using a physical correction. NET removes the energy blockages to allow the body’s own healing process to take place. It does not, however, make life’s problems go away.
