What is NET (Neuro Emotional Technique)?

NET (Neuro Emotional Technique)

Neuro Emotional Technique is a stress-reducing technique that removes neurological imbalances related to the physiology of unresolved stress patterns.

Simply put, NET can help resolve stubborn symptoms, self-limiting beliefs, phobias, or pain by helping your body release unprocessed emotions.

How Does NET Work?

Imagine cutting a lemon, smelling it, and then biting into it.  As you continue to visualize this juicy, sour lemon, you may notice that you start to salivate, even though the lemon is not actually present.  Your body has a memory of that prior experience where a lemon made you salivate.

The same may be true if you hear someone talking about bugs or lice.  You may start to scratch your skin or head as you hear about crawling critters, even though no actual bugs are present.

When a past experience causes any emotion to arise, the body replicates continued physiological responses that are similar to the ones that occurred with the original event.  This ongoing response is often unwanted, such as feeling anxious anytime you fall short of perfection.  This “original event” may be from a past relationship where you felt insulted or had love withheld anytime you made a mistake.  Even if a person is in a healthier relationship now, they may notice that they still get anxious or feel worried that this loved one will be upset with them if they are imperfect (which we all are of course).

Neuro Emotional Technique combines elements of applied kinesiology, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and physiology to restore balance to a person’s emotional and physiological systems. This stress-reducing technique helps process unresolved emotion or trauma that is stored in the body from prior stressful event or memories.  This technique helps a person to be less reactive and no longer held back by pain, self-limiting beliefs, or anxiety.

Together, the patient and practitioner are able to find the original emotion and event that are contributing to the current undesirable symptom or emotion.  The nervous system is then allowed to process the stuck emotion, and the patient is able to move forward, no longer being held back by past trauma or stress.

The majority of patients notice immediate relief and leave their NET session stating that they feel “lighter” or “more relaxed”.
