Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) & Stress Management
We inherently know that thoughts can cause a physiologic response. We have all heard the term stress headache. Just visualize for a moment that you are taking a bite of a big, juicy lemon. What happened? If you are like most people, your mouth is watering right now. You are responding to the memory of a lemon leading to a physiological response. This is similar to a stress response that is triggered from unresolved memories.
We have two types of stress responses, either acute or chronic. Acute is when you feel that you are in immediate danger. Chronic stress effects the hypothalmus, pituitary and adrenal glands leading to the release of cortisol and physiologic side effects in the body. Events, smells, sounds and feelings that we experience today can subconsciously remind us of past traumatic events, which can lead to chronic stress resulting in symptoms. With NET these stressors can be found and eliminated so that we no longer react to the stimulus in the same way. This is a simple quick tool that can be used not only to treat emotions that we are aware of, but past emotions we are unaware that we are still responding to, as well as pain that is related to past emotional stress.
