Emotional health is directly tied to physical health and physiology. Unresolved stress can literally wear you down physically, making you more likely to get sick or feel irritable, anxious and depressed. Over time, negative mind-body stress patterns can lead to physiological symptoms, such as:
- Neck/back pain
- Gastrointestinal distress
- Low mood
- Shortness of breath
- High blood pressure
- Other various symptoms
The Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) helps to identify and ease lingering physiologic patterns associated with the traumatic stress contributing to a patient’s physical symptoms.
What Is It?
NET is a scientifically proven means of addressing long-standing health issues that have an associated stress component. Using a manual muscle test as a tool, NET can help identify involuntary physiological responses triggered by various physical and verbal stimuli in a safe, natural and effective way.
By determining if physical symptoms have an emotional overlay, NET may help identify unresolved trauma and stored stress response patterns that are interrupting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Armed with test results, the practitioner can direct the release of negative stress patterns for the restoration of physical health.
In a process based on the healing art of Acupuncture, emotional triggers are cross checked against meridian points of the body associated with specific stress responses. Once the trigger point/s is identified, pulse correction or spinal correction is performed.
How Does Stress Affect my Health?
Stress is a normal part of life. There is good stress, such as welcoming a new baby into the home or following a new career path, and bad stress like experiencing divorce or the death of a loved one. Although the emotions attached are different, both types set off similar physiologic responses in the body.
When the stress response lingers long-term, and a patient “holds on” to anxiety, grief or anger associated with a particular event, negative mind-body stress patterns are formed that can repeat themselves over and over. Eventually, these patterns manifest in destructive behaviors and beliefs (phobias) that often present as chronic physical symptoms.
Addressing the physical symptoms while ignoring the stress/emotional component means that symptoms, though seemingly treated successfully, often recur, because the stress response pattern is so ingrained. Helping the patient release stuck patterns can dramatically help to improve health.
How Soon Will I See Results?
Many patients report immediate improvement in health and mobility, though we often suggest following up NET therapy with specifically tailored holistic remedies designed to counteract the damage done over time and encourage recovery. Although NET is extremely helpful for neutralizing stress patterns that present physiologically in the body, it is often beneficial to pursue counseling with a licensed therapist.
