Neuro Emotional Technique

Dr. matt holding womans headOur bodies remember events that have happened to them, be it physical or emotional. The stress generated by these events can be traced, in many cases, to current physical problems. That trauma is stored in the body creating an imbalance.

Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is a safe, effective and natural system that looks at and resolves physical issues caused by our body’s stress reaction to a past emotion.

What is NET?

NET is a mind-body, stress reduction therapy, created by chiropractor Scott Walker, that works to remove emotional ties to an original traumatic event. By doing so, we are able to relieve your physical pain and discomfort. In our office, it allows our chiropractors and acupuncturists a safe way to detect and treat the emotional components of our patient’s physical complaints.

Your stress response may not function naturally if your body is in a weakened state from poor nutrition, stress or physical trauma. We know these responses are not just in our brains, but can occur anywhere in our bodies. In fact, our gut is often called the ‘second brain’ because a lot of our neurotransmitters are produced there. These chemical messengers work between your brain and nervous system and determine our moods.


NET is not counseling or psychotherapy and does not treat emotions. It is a system of correction and reintegration that resolves the physical pain associated with emotional trauma. Emotions like anger, grief and fear may affect us long after the event. These negative emotions can have a dramatic effect on your health. Manual Muscle Testing (MMT) is a tool NET uses to identify these negative emotions stored in your body. NET is useful in treating disorders such as chronic pain, neuromuscular complaints and digestive disorders.

NET is truly integrative, using principles and practices from Traditional Chinese medicine, chiropractic, acupuncture, AK, neurophysiology, homeopathy and more. NET practitioners use the ancient Chinese medical correlations between emotions and acupuncture meridians to determine what emotion the patient is experiencing.

Response to NET treatment is usually fast and can produce dramatic results. An integrative approach using AK and NET can locate what emotion is where in your body so you can connect to and release it. Once released, it won’t be able to affect your muscles, joints or chemical pathways.

Dr. Lyon has successfully used NET to help:

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Chronic pain

  • Physical trauma
  • Digestive issues
  • Phobias
  • General anxiety

  • Organ dysfunction
  • Self-sabotaging behaviors
  • Hormone and Endocrine imbalances

NET is not intended to heal or cure the patient. It removes blocks to the body’s natural energy flow, allowing the body to heal itself. Just the way nature intended it to.

Won't my anxiety increase once you start testing?


Manual Muscle testing will not increase your anxiety levels. In fact, it may reduce them as we discover the cause of your anxiety. Other techniques, such as acupuncture, have the ability to calm your nervous system as well.
How do I know my anxiety won't come back after treatment ends?

Our treatment is designed to remove the blocks that keep your anxiety connected to your body. Once removed, we show you how to get rid of that anxiety once and for all.
