Emotions are part of our normal response to everyday experiences. Sometimes however there are factors that prevent the body from recovering from what was originally a healthy response. The result of this a short–circuit or “glitch” in the nervous system which can affect physical and mental well-being.
Most people are familiar with Pavlov’s experiment where he rang a bell each time his dogs were fed. In a relatively short amount of time the dogs learnt to associate the bell with food and would salivate in response to the bell, regardless of whether food was present. This is what is called a conditioned response and can also happen with our own emotional responses.
Historically, emotions were thought to reside entirely in the brain. We now know that emotions chemically affect the body on almost every level. If you’ve ever felt butterflies in your stomach when nervous or heaviness in your chest when sad, then you know first-hand how emotions effect the body. Even imagined events can stimulate a response dramatically affecting our body (e.g. a nightmare resulting in a racing heartbeat and cold sweats even though the attacker is not real).
Let’s consider a boy scolded by his father for making a mistake. This incident caused him great anxiety and an upset stomach. Today, as an adult, he finds himself tense and gets an upset stomach whenever an older man (e.g. his boss) criticises him in any way. He doesn’t consciously connect the two incidents, and can’t figure out why he feels ill. NET can help make the connection and efficiently resolve the problem.
After NET treatment many patients report feeling that a burden has been lifted and feel an internal shift. NET provides a sophisticated health intervention in a comfortable, safe environment. It is a simple process performed in short sessions and is not like counselling. The overall goal of the process is to restore mind-body balance and health.
