"The triad of health includes three categories, the physical or structural, the nutritional, and the emotional. Each one of these categories is important to be in balance for a person to truly be healthy. For some patients, one category may need to be addressed more substantially than another category."

Neuroemotional Technique Treatments  in Manhattan, New York City

As a holistic chiropractor I work with the “whole” person. I understand how emotional stress can lead to dis-ease in the body. A person can eat well, take nutritional supplements and receive physical or structural chiropractic care, but if the emotional body is out of balance, their improvement may be limited. 

Over the years, while working with patients that have come to see me for physical pain in their bodies, I have developed a greater understanding of how stress affects the physical body. When I discovered neuroemotional technique, I knew that I had come across a technique that could help to fill in the missing piece for certain patients that were stuck in a pattern of emotional stress affecting their bodies.

What is Neuroemotional Technique?

Neuroemotional Technique (Net) is a mindbody technique that uncovers emotional stress in the body and helps to free the body of this stress. Hans Seyle’s work showed that emotional and mental stressors produce the same physiological responses as physical and chemical stressors. Emotions are related to information substances called neuropeptides, neurotransmitters, and hormones. 

These information substances can interact with every cell in the body. When these information substances react with a cell an entire cascade of responses may be elicited by the cell. On a simple level this may include the heart rate changing, breathing changes, and pupil dilation.

Net assists the subconscious or limbic system of the body to complete the process of extinction of an emotional response. For example, a person may have had an emotional event from their past cause an emotional response in their body. The conscious brain may believe that the issue has either been resolved or not, but this doesn’t seem to matter, because the subconscious brain may still be affected by this event or situation. This original event may be setting up a conditioned response by the body to react to a similar stress. The body will keep reacting because the process of extinction has not been completed.   

A major component of Net is the acupuncture five element theory. This theory associates specific emotions with a meridian system. For example:
  • Anger is associated with the liver meridian
  • Resentment is associated with the gallbladder
  • Fear is associated with the kidney
  • Grief is associated with the lungs

Muscle Testing a patient for Neuroemotional Technique Treatments  in Manhattan, New York City

Treating Pain with Neuroemotional Technique

By using acupuncture pulse points or chiropractic body map points the net practitioner can discover what emotion may be playing a role in a specific problem that a patient is having.

Simple dialogue with the patient and muscle testing can reveal an underlying emotional connection to a patient’s problem. The treatment involves a patient holding a specific point, while the practitioner uses an adjusting instrument to stimulate certain body points that are related to the net findings. 
A Case Study

A 31 year old woman came into my office with severe low back pain. She was leaning over to the left as her body was compensating for a herniation in her lower lumbar region. She was having shooting pain down her right leg and some numbness in her toes. I treated her for 5 sessions with chiropractic care and she had some improvement. 

On the sixth visit I uncovered an nec (neuroemotional component), which indicates that there is an emotional component to a person’s pain. The Net technique uncovered a connection to her ex-fiancé and deep feelings of unrequited love. She indicated that the pain had started the day after she saw her ex-fiancé for the first time after they had broken up. It was like a light bulb went off and she had a great look of amazement when she discovered the connection between her seeing her fiancé again and the pain. 

She indicated that it made total sense to her and with that we went into the emotional treatment work. The next time she came into the office she said that she had the biggest improvement since she started her care with me. Her pain was more localized and she was standing up much straighter. In fact, the antalgic lean which she presented with was ninety percent better. Her leg pain was gone and her low back pain decreased in intensity substantially. 

The Net treatment doesn’t necessarily solve a person’s emotional problem for them, but what it does do is it helps how the body reacts to emotional stress. Stress only becomes problematic when the body or mind is affected by it negatively. Our reaction to stress is what matters, and if our bodies and mind can manage it than it won’t have a negative impact on us. 

The emotional component of a person’s issue or problem is oftentimes overlooked by patients and their healthcare practitioners. This part of the health triad is important to be addressed for the best results possible.
