The Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET) is a mind-body stress reduction technique. NET uses a methodology of finding and removing neurological imbalances related to the physiology of unresolved stress. NET is a tool that can help improve overall health and quality of life without the use of medication.
Stress is a normal part of life. When we talk about stress it’s important to understand that while many people think of stress as a bad thing, not all stress is detrimental to a person’s health.
As stress increases into Eustress, performance and productivity actually increase. Eustress is actually beneficial to the individual. It is only when the level of stress increases beyond the eustress when it become distress and performance decreases. Distress is associated with a whole host of health conditions and symptoms.
Emotions are perfectly normal and perfectly healthy. It is human nature to have an emotional response to significant events in our lives and then return to a normal state.
Sometimes however, our bodies hold onto a response and “lock it” in our sympathetic nervous system as a neuro-emotional complex (NEC). Eventually, negative emotions (conscious or unconscious) may manifest as a symptom.
NET is used by a variety of health care practitioners including chiropractors, acupuncturist, medical doctors, social workers, psychiatrists and therapists. However, it is important to understand that NET care is not a substitute for psychological or psychiatric therapy. Patients who show a possible need for psychotherapy are referred to psychiatric professionals for evaluation and/or treatment.
