About Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
In a weakened physiological state, we become more susceptible to maladaptive responses to stressors
Our physiology is weakened by spinal subluxations, nutritional deficiencies, and imbalances within the energy highways of our body, known as meridians.
Emotional trauma, in the presence of a meridian or structural deficit, can cause a pathophysiological-related pattern which does not resolve itself.
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) can be used to guide a practitioner through identification and restoration of unresolved physical and/or behavioral patterns.
An Integrative Approach to Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
At Integrative, Neuro Emotional Technique protocols vary with each patient based on their individual needs and severity of symptoms. Sessions are typically 20-40 minutes long and are typically scheduled at least 3-4 weeks apart. Sessions may be integrated within your visits with your Naturopathic Doctor. The total amount of treatments you will need will depend on your response and progress.
Optimal nutrition, supplementation, stress management, and adequate sleep are all factors that influence healing. Many patients benefit from working on these factors with their doctor, alongside Neuro Emotional Technique sessions, to optimize their response.
If working with a doctor, they may include testing methods to evaluate how best to support you alongside Neuro Emotional Technique sessions. These testing methods may include:

How It Works
How does Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) work?
Overview of Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) utilizes a specific protocol of muscle testing to identify Neuro-Emotional Complexes (NECs), stuck emotional patterns within the body that contribute to physiological dysfunction.
Target Area of the Body
By applying gentle pressure to the arm, resistance, and response can be measured, providing information regarding emotional triggers, as well as physiological and structural imbalances.
Health Benefits of Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
By resolving NECs, the blocks to the natural healing process are removed, allowing the body to move towards homeostasis.
