Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
"Label reading at the grocery store and daily exercise have become the
standard for a health conscious society seeking a higher quality lifestyle.
However, lack of mental and emotional self-management is a root cause of most
stress-related health problems. Physical health can be improved through a
balanced approach to exercise and diet but without managing how we respond
mentally and emotionally to day-to-day events, stress accumulates and can
substantially damage a person’s system." (1)
NET was developed by chiropractor Scott Walker. It is taught as a chiropractic technique to chiropractors. It had its origins in Applied Kinesiology.
Walker found that when word or ideas that were spoken, either by the patient of the
practitioner, that those issues that held problems for the patient caused an strong indicator muscle to weaken. This was also true if the issue was even just thought about by the patient. Using this method, emotional issues could be pin pointed as being necessary for clearance.
Walker found along with others that certain acupuncture points when stimulated while the troubling thought were actively in the mind, could alleviate the potency of the effect of those emotional issues.
Some parts of our society has the mistaken notion that if you are emotional about something that this is a less than desirable state to be in. Or that there is something is really wrong with you if you do.
The truth is that emotions are the result of the super fast processing of neurological input, at a rate that is much faster than our conscious brain can make sense of those inputs. Sometimes if the stimulus is strong enough, the subconscious response to those stimuli are perpetuated in spite of us cognitively knowing that the event is from the past, it is over, not happening now and won't hurt us now.
Our emotions are there for fast responses, fast recall and automatic responses. They are there for our survival, they seem not to be there for us to make immediate sense of things. It is there for the do I run NOW or do I fight NOW. As such they can also if not cleared, become a source of un-conscious stress and tension, and the source of repeated behaviours, without knowing why we keep doing them. The cause is sub conscious so we don't know the cause easily.
Dr Walker worked out a method of finding where in the acupuncture meridians the emotion is stuck (by use of AK and Meridian alarm points) and that through the activation of the Riddler spinal reflexes and later the use of the pulse points on the wrists that these emotional issues could be de-activated.
I say de-activated because the memory of the event is still there, it just doesn't effect us in the same way as it used to.
EFT is the off shoot of the work of Dr. Roger Callahan. This work was further developed by Gary Craig who has an extensive site www.emofree.com where you can download a free manual of EFT this is e-mailed to you. EFT is NOT a chiropractic technique and is freely taught to anyone who wants to learn. Many health care professionals use the method, from psychiatrists and psychologists to medical and chiropractic practitioners as well as people without any health care training. This is a starting place for you to help yourself. I highly recommend the manual to everyone wanting to help themselves and their families.
I find EFT more user friendly than NET but I integrate both methods into my work.
I have found EFT to be of use in all ages from about 7 years to 80. For its uses, I can only repeat Gary Craig's words. "Try it for everything." EFT is on of those methods that if you try it, it may help and very profoundly. If it seemingly doesn't have dramatic results for you, it doesn't mean that nothing has changed, it just means you haven't been working on the "key" issue that helps resolve the problem.
There are some situations where the emotions are the key to resolving health problems and structural instabilities. These can usually be rapidly resolved. It does require patient participation to a greater extent than with the other things I do. Here patients need to be full participants otherwise the whole effort can be just a waste of time and money.
Here are some articles that show evidence that there is a meridian energy system
that we can influence our physiology through.
