More for body-oriented practitioners

NET is used by Body-oriented practitioners to help physical problems that have an associated stress component. Stress can definitely be a factor in acute situations, and it is also often a factor in chronic and hard-to-resolve conditions.

Within the steps of NET, the practitioner uses the following 8 dynamics to help address unresolved mind/body stress:

When doing NET, the practitioner uses a functional neurology manual muscle test as a tool to help identify involuntary physiological responses. In this way, the muscle test is used as a gauge of autonomic reactivity to given physical and/or verbal stimuli. READ MORE

To determine if there’s a stress-related component to a physical problem, the practitioner cross-checks or 2-points a suspected problem area to the Emotional Points (located on the forehead, halfway between the pupils and the natural hairline).

During the correction phase of the NET process, patients are asked to hold a specific Meridian Access Point and the Emotional Points while focusing on the distressing event that’s associated with their physical problem. At this point, a pulse correction or spinal correction can be used.

A ‘Home Run Formula’ Model of Care

Although stress and stress-related symptoms can be a huge component of health, we know other factors can also cause and/or contribute to unwanted mind and body conditions. READ MORE

More on ‘What is NET’

Dr. Scott Walker started developing NET to help his patients who had chronically recurring subluxations — those cases where traditional adjustments didn’t hold. Dr. Walker found there was often a stress overlay that was triggering the problem. READ MORE

Treating Body & Mind — Scientific Evidence

Results from a 2017 study of patients with traumatic stress symptoms demonstrated significant changes in the NET group (as compared to the control group) in the functional connectivity between the cerebellum, the amygdala, and parahippocampus, as well as reductions in autonomic reactivity based on heart rate response to the traumatic stimulus.

In another 2021 published study, NET or control treatments were given twice weekly for 4 weeks to patients with chronic low back pain. Compared to the placebo group, patients receiving the NET treatment showed clinical and statistical significance with declines of virtually all pain markers, as well as showed positive gains in quality-of-life indicators. MORE ABOUT RESEARCH
