NET is a mind-body technique that uses the methodology of finding and removing neurological imbalances related to the physiology of unresolved stress patterns. These unresolved patters are called Neuro Emotional Complexes (NECs).
Emotional responses are naturally ‘hard wired’ in the body. A stimulus happens, we respond, and then the body should return to normal. Occasionally, however, emotional trauma in the presence of a neurological or meridian deficit can cause a physio-pathological pattern in the body (an NEC) that does not resolve itself. NET seeks to normalize this patter by a physiological change; a result of a physical intervention that is made through the cutaneous or spinal accesses of the nervous system. NET is a tool based on many scientific principles and is used to help improve many behavioral and physical conditions. It is used by healthcare practitioners from many disciplines. For example, a client may just look at a book or a worksheet related to speech therapy and that could potentially produce an emotional response that has been previously hard wired in the body. This would make it hard to work with a client who has some unresolved stress patterns due to the NEC.
NET is a great tool to create a neutrality surrounding a situation. For example, being able to accept someone exactly where they are at and being ‘OK’ with what is can potentially be a HUGE shift. I have found that providing NET to the family system is amazingly beneficial for all.
