Neuro Emotional Technique

This practice works to support and correct the musculoskeletal system, designed to treat the body as a whole rather than looking only at a single symptom on its own.

It operates to work in flow with the nervous system which can be triggered manually through the gentle manipulation of the body’s joints.

Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is a technique that works with the mind and body in tandem to release stress.

While stress is most often more obvious in the mind, your brain releases cortisol and other hormones that have a physiological effect in the body too.

Many people have heard of the concept of the body remembering, the Neuro Emotional Technique is designed to work with this concept to find that brain-body connection, even for old stressors and events you may have forgotten. It has its origins in chiropractic and can be used in conjunction with other treatments too.

Everyone’s body is totally unique, though common areas you may experience stress or tension in, include the head, neck, shoulders and hips. These points can be targeted with NET which not only relieves the pain experienced in the body but also serves to alleviate the stress in the mind too. This holistic approach stems from the principles of chiropractic techniques though utilises more of the mind’s influence over the body. It’s a wonderful tool that can help release long-held stress.

How does Neuro Emotional Technique work? When we experience stress, the body responds physiologically with things like increased heart rate, tension across the forehead and shaky hands. These can be triggered by factors that can’t always be seen or understood and often have roots in your past. They stem from things like excessive or prolonged grief, stress or anger – these are referred to as neuro emotions.

NET serves to address the symptoms of stress rather than the emotion causing the response itself. Emotions are malleable and changeable while the stress response can be located more specifically within the body. In turn this means your NET specialist can work with that area to reduce the severity and frequency of that stress response.

In a similar way that acupuncture works, a NET practitioner will apply pressure to certain points on your body to relieve tension. It’s a very gentle process and is an ideal alternative to those who would also prefer to avoid the needles used in acupuncture.

Each Neuro Emotional Technique session will vary depending on the individual. Typically, muscle testing will be the first step which helps identify where treatment needs to be more specifically targeted. Following this, corrections and adjustments in the body can be made through pressure and reflex points, as well as adjusting any nutritional imbalances or deficiencies.

Depending on your unique needs, you may have multiple sessions and your practitioner will walk you through the process during your first appointment. To find out more, you can book in for a consultation.

What can neuro emotional technique help with? In addressing things like stuck emotions, triggering memories and lingering stress, NET can help rectify imbalances that affect your mind and body simultaneously. People typically utilise NET for ongoing conditions including pain across the neck, back and head, digestive issues and physical trauma.

It can also benefit those suffering with imbalances in the hormonal and endocrine systems. It’s a drug-free alternative and can also be used in conjunction with other treatments too. Your NET practitioner may also recommend some exercises or dietary adjustments to make at home to make the most of your sessions.
