11 Feb What is Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET)
Getting adjusted regularly and following your Chiropractors recommendations may help not only to dramatically reduce stress, but also to improve the way your body can deal with it. We feel different emotions, in different parts of our bodies, in different ways.
Many years ago, Acupuncturists correlated different emotions with the different organ meridians in our bodies. For example, fear is associated with the kidneys; anger is associated with the liver and grief is associated with the lungs. Building on this principle, NET practitioners use muscle testing, body reflex points and semantic reactions (through words and phrases) to assist and guide you to recall the specific emotion that is “locked” in your body (called a Neuro-Emotional Complex, NEC) and also identify when it first occurred.
Using this deductive process, the NET practitioner engages a specific neuro-emotional pattern, much as a computer operator engages a specific program on a computer screen. While you mentally hold the emotional memory of when the NEC first took place, your NET practitioner can assist in eliminating the NEC through a safe and quick physical correction so your body can respond in a healthier way.
Stress levels result from a combination of how much pressure there is in your world and how you respond to this pressure in your mind…
A recent national health survey found that one in three Australian adults suffers moderate to extreme stress. While a little stress can keep us stimulated, too much can take a serious toll on your health.
When you’re stressed, hormones like adrenalin and cortisol surge through your body. Your heart beat, breathing, blood pressure and blood sugar all increase. This “flight or fight” response helped prehistoric humans survive, but more often than not, we don’t need to adopt this reaction. Unused hormones coursing through our bodies over a long period can become toxic. These toxins are released directly into the blood stream, which can directly irritate the nerves and causes the muscles being supplied by these nerves to pull tight. This in turn creates various musculoskeletal problems such as pain, stiffness and reduced function. This may present as a physical discomfort, however it has actually originated from the body being under emotional stress.
