The Neuro Emotional Technique is a methodology used to normalize both unresolved physical and behavioral patterns in the body. In fact, NET sees these physical and behavioral patterns as being two sides of the same coin. This is because the terms "mind" and "body" are words descriptive of two aspects of the organism as a whole, just as "heads" and "tails" are words descriptive of two aspects of a coin. Inseparable.
The object of NET interventions is a constellation of factors known to practitioners as a neuro-emotional complex (NEC). NECs are the pattern manifested in an unhealthy juncture of the mind and body aspects of the organism.
NET practitioners are trained to assist the body's healing process by identifying and balancing unresolved emotional influences- and the compromised physiological underpinnings of emotions. It's a true mind-body approach.
Emotions are traditionally thought of as being normal functions of human beings and normally pose no neurophysiological problem. Occasionally, emotional trauma in the presence of a neurological or meridian deficit can cause a physiopathological-related pattern in the body, which does not resolve of itself.
NET seeks to normalize this pattern by physiological change; a result of a physical intervention versus a traditional talk-it-out approach.
NET is a truly holistic approach used to help re-establish balance in the body, making use of the neuro-mechanisms of speech, general semantics, emotions, as well as chiropractic principles, laws of acupuncture's meridian system, muscle testing, cutaneous reflex points, principles of traditional psychology, and more recent innovations.
