Neuro Emotional Technique (N.E.T.) - Part II

Neuro emotional Technique Page 1



  • Neuro Emotional Technique (N.E.T.) - Part II



Holistic Alternative Method to access the Physiology of Emotions through Applied Kinesiology and Chiropractic Neurology.



After N.E.C. is treated

The spinal adjustment

  • stabilizes the subluxation and
  • resolves the muscle and meridian imbalances.
  • The underlying negative emotion now loses its impact and is less likely to be restimulated.
  • When an N.E.C. is eliminated, the nervous system can work better.
  • It is important to realize that spinal adjustments don't make life's problems go away. However, a person with a strong nervous system can usually deal with life's problems more effectively.

When do N.E.C.'s need to be adjusted?

  • The artichoke analogy symbolizes the accumulated layers of structural, biochemical and emotional factors causing ill health. The doctor observes and corrects each of these factors (including N.E.C.s) as they surface.
  • Thus, your return to health is actually a "peeling" process, in harmony with the timing of the body's own healing wisdom.

Is N.E.T. treatment safe?

  • Yes. Qualified doctors correct an N.E.C. with a safe and gentle adjustment of the spine. The entire procedure is not unpleasant, and often patients express immediate relief following the spinal adjustment. Now that the emotional side of the triangle of health has been strengthened, the patient can make enhanced gains in structural and biochemical health.

    Please Note: N.E.T. treatment is not a substitute for psychological or psychiatric therapy. Patients who show a possible need for psychotherapy are referred to psychological or psychiatric professionals for evaluation and/or treatment. The correction of an N.E.C. is a physiological phenomenon accomplished by doctors qualified to adjust the spine.

What are emotions?

In the past, people related to emotions as being psychologically based. Now scientific discoveries have shown emotions are physiologically based.

"A complex reaction pattern of changes in nervous, visceral, and skeletal-muscle tissues response to a stimulus...As a strong feeling, emotion is usually directed toward a specific person or event and involves widespread physiological changes, such as increased heart rate and inhibition of peristalsis."
-The Longman Dictionary of Psychology and Psychiatry

Recent advancements in neuroscience demonstrate that emotions are an interaction between chains of amino acids which form neuropeptides and receptors. Emotions are normal physiological (organic) processes in the body, some of which are pleasant and others which are quite unpleasant.

Just as the physiology of muscles can be affected by subluxations, the physiology of emotions can also be affected. A muscle contracting, when and how you want it to, is normal physiology. When a muscle is in a state of constant contraction (or spasm) at an inappropriate time, it is abnormal physiology, and we seek help to relieve the nerve pressure that is causing it. Similarly, when an emotional response is happening at an inappropriate time, it is also abnormal physiology, and we likewise may seek out help to relieve the nerve pressure that is causing it.

Where are emotions?

We feel different emotions in different parts of our body in different ways. The ancient acupuncturists correlated the different emotions to different organ meridians in our body. For example:

  • fear to the kidney
  • anger to the liver
  • grief to the lungs, etc.

    Although the primary locations for the physiology of emotions are in the

  • brain
  • spine
  • autonomic nervous system
  • acupuncture circuits, meridians

    emotions do affect any and all parts of the body in a physiological way. Researchers have now demonstrated that emotional biochemicals travel to almost every cell in the body.

What heals?

It is worth noting that:

  • Chiropractic adjustments do not heal the body
  • Nutritional supplements do not heal the body
  • Removing an N.E.C. does not heal the body
  • The body heals itself

    All "therapies" are only successful if they "remove the blocks" to allow the body's own healing wisdom to express itself.
