Neuro Emotional Technique (N.E.T)
As we know, emotions can effect your whole health. By using N.E.T I can help you decrease stress by helping you identify and ‘let go’ of negative emotional patterns. N.E.T is a safe, non invasive and natural way to resolve long term health issues that have an emotional componant. It is also used as a stress relief tool.
Energy Balancing Technique (E.B.T)
Discovered by Dr Devi Nambudripad, it is a method that helps to balance energies in the body. Using Dr Nambudripad’s Oriental medical theory, a food intolerance is seen to cause an energy imbalance in the energy meridians. This can subsequently cause a blockage in the meridian flow of energy, contributing to sensitivities and allergic reactions/intolerances. When Energy Balancing Technique removes or clears the blockage in the meridian, that particular allergen has been shown to remove adverse reactions with future contact. This treatment is non invasive and gentle for all ages.
