Stress is a major factor contributing to much of our ill health in the western world. Our high pace of society demands that we evolve mentally much faster than we are humanly capable. The result is anxiety, depression, physical aches, chemical imbalances and organ dysfunction.
It is important to remember the relationship between our physical structure, chemistry and emotions, or The Triad of Health. Just as stress can cause muscle tension or nutritional deficiencies, toxicities and subluxations can cause stress and anxiety. It is important to differentiate which aspect of the triad occurred first and therefore created the imbalance. This is where applied kinesiology testing is used. There are three techniques used at The Healing Room to address this emotional component of our health.
Neuroemotional Technique (NET) is a mind-body stress-reduction technique that helps find and remove brain imbalances related to unresolved stress.
The great physiologist Pavlov demonstrated that an animal can be conditioned to experience physical changes from a stimulus that previously caused none. For example, a child who is bitten by an angry barking dog, is going to become upset when any dog barks. Or the smell of food will cause the mouth to water from the memory of the taste of the food.
What all usually looks like in a clinical sense, is a recent event sparking the memory of a previously traumatic event, causing a person to react to the recent event in an exaggerated fashion. For example, a child adopted out at birth may struggle in their adolescent years to cope with failed relationships due to the emotion of abandonment. It is important to identify and release the original causative stress in order to stop the present unhealthy emotional pattern.
As discovered in the late 1970s, emotional responses release chemicals into the body. Receptors in the brain and other tissues in the body pick up these chemicals and store the "information" coded in them. Interestingly, this process also happens when a person recalls an event in which a stress originally occurred. This is a key factor used to treat a person in the NET treatment.
It’s important to note that NET does not cure or heal the patient, but rather, NET removes blocks to the natural vitalism of the body, “allowing” the body to repair itself naturally.
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is based upon the belief that all behaviour has structure. Richard Bandler (mathematician) and John Grinder (linguistic professor) found common linguistic and behavioural patterns used amongst accomplished leaders and so built behavioural models based upon these. It is these models that were used to develop the techniques of NLP.
NLP is utilised within our business, health, sporting and public communities to obtain higher levels of achievement. It is useful in modelling many areas of our daily behaviours.
•Control the connection between your mind, emotions and behaviour
•Learn how to control conversations
•Define what you really want in life
•Become an expert in motivation
•Increase your ability to communicate and build instant rapport with anyone
•Improve control of your internal mental patterns
•Learn how to coach yourself and others
•Learn techniques to get better results in your career
NLP was founded while in pursuit of the behaviours that made "exceptional people" achieve excellence in their lives. It is therefore designed to help us all find and achieve excellence within our mental and emotional health.
