What is Neuro Emotional Technique?

Did you know that our emotional response to any situation can get stuck in the body? When we have a stress response of anger, sadness, fear, and all the rest of the emotions they can affect us long after the original event occurred. Sometimes, our body fails to let go of these emotions and they can result in self-sabotaging behaviors, addiction, damaging beliefs or responses, and many chronic problems.

We use an approach called Neuro Emotional Technique ® (NET) to help identify the stuck emotions and let them go. NET is a safe, effective, and natural way to instantly resolve long-standing health problems that have a mind-body stress component. A simple manual muscle test is used to determine the associated emotions of an unresolved stress pattern in the body. Another way to think about unresolved stress patterns is a memory loop. An example is when we get stuck in the same pattern where whenever we experience anger we feel like a failure. We would want to break this cycle. We use muscle testing to determine if the body is in harmony with a particular concept or idea that is linked to an unresolved event.

Our body automatically responds to memories without even thinking about it. Some positives would be if we smell something and it brings us back to our childhood. Or, when you are told to think about a lemon and your mouth starts to water. These are subconscious responses that we have no control over. What happens when that response is a negative response though? Our body will still respond as if in a stressed state and this is where the chronic problem can be rooted. We want to alter the response to further emotional events, so they do not create a lasting negative response leading to chronic problems.

What to Expect in a NET Session?

During the session, there is not a lot of talking about the events in your life. You do not have to go into detail about something that may come up. We recommend to still see a therapist to work through deep patterns, but what we have found is that NET has been able to uncover a deeply rooted pattern that the person can then go back to their therapist to discuss. You will be asked to form a mental picture of the triggering event and your body will assume a similar state as when it originally reacted. Then, we have you contact specific points on the body that relate to the emotion that will help you let go of the unresolved pattern. It is a very simple process. We even use the same technique with babies and kids and have the parent talk to the child for their subconscious to pull up the original event for them. Sometimes specific homeopathic remedies are recommended to further uproot the emotional response after the session. Unresolved, long-standing negatively charged patterns can often deplete or weaken tissues in the body and the remedies help to promote healing and the return of balance and harmony.

After the sessions, many patients report feeling like a weight has been lifted from them and they feel clear headed.

What can NET help with?

We have helped people with physical pain related to emotions and things like constipation, bedwetting, migraines, and insomnia. We have also seen really cool changes in baby’s positioning in utero and releasing trauma from loss. The technique is also good for anything that you feel might be holding you back in your life.

Dr. Jeanne wanted to share her first personal experience with NET:

When I was taking the class, I was pulled up to the front of the room. I would always get a butterfly feeling in my stomach whenever I would be driving somewhere new or in an unknown situation. I wanted to release that because I felt like it was holding me back and causing anxiety. I did this training in 2016 and I have never felt that butterfly feeling again, while driving or at the airport, for example. I have used this technique to help me think clearer for my career path and help let go of my limiting beliefs of myself and the world around me. I have gained so much healing for myself using this technique.”
