The Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is a mind-body approach to help stress related conditions. Developed in the early 1980s by Scott Walker, DC, NET is a psychosomatic stress reduction intervention procedure aimed at improving health.
Dr. Walker graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic
in 1965, and although the large majority of his patients were getting excellent results, he was constantly frustrated when some of his patients with chronic subluxations simply were not experiencing the same degree of improvement. Dr. Walker was an expert adjuster and he knew how to support the body with proper nutrition, but he continued to observe that a mind-body element was not being fully addressed. Eventually, Dr. Walker developed a procedure (later to be called the Neuro Emotional Technique
) using a specific chiropractic adjustment
that achieved unprecedented results in dealing with the mind-body stress component of health. Encouraged by fellow chiropractors who were also seeing these dramatic improvements, the NET Seminar trainings were officially launched in May of 1988.
During the 1990s the Walker’s Home Run Formula
was developed as a comprehensive model to address various components of overall well-being: Emotional mind-body stress (NET), Toxins (homeopathic support), Biochemistry (nutrition) and Structural factors. After years of clinical testing, Dr. Walker also produced homeopathic formulas that were made available in 1994 to specifically support the meridian therapy aspects of the NET process.
In 2000 another correction method (apart from spinal adjusting) was added that uses acupuncture
pulse point therapy, giving licensed healthcare practitioners who were not qualified to adjust the spine the option of using the tool of NET to help their patients. With his wife, Deborah Walker, DC, as the company’s CEO and co-developer, NET now has thousands of trained chiropractic practitioners and hundreds of Certified NET Practitioners who are helping patients around the world.
