What is Sports Medicine?
Sports medicine focuses on helping people improve their athletic performance, recover from injury and prevent future injuries.
Sports medicine professionals treat amateur athletes, those who want better results from their exercise program, people who have suffered injuries and are trying to regain full function and those with disabilities who are trying to increase mobility and capability.
What is Applied Kinesiology?
Kinesiology, also known as biomechanics, is the study of body movement. Applied kinesiology (AK) which is also known as muscle strength testing, is a method of diagnosis and treatment based on the belief that various muscles are linked to particular organs and glands, and that specific muscle weakness can signal distant internal problems such as nerve damage, reduced blood supply, chemical imbalances or other organ or gland problems. Practitioners contend that by correcting this muscle weakness, you can help heal a problem in the associated internal organ.
How is muscle testing conducted?
Muscle strength is tested against pressure exerted by the practitioner. If the muscle stands up to pressure, it’s deemed “strong” or “locked”; those that give way to pressure are considered “weak” or “unlocked,” and are deemed indicative of a problem. ICAK considers the use of the muscle strength testing alone an abuse of AK, typically by practitioners who have not been properly trained and certified. The organization holds that muscle testing should be done only as part of a complete diagnostic examination. In addition to muscle testing, AK practitioners may also press on “trigger points” to see if they lead to muscle weakness.
When AK is used to determine whether a particular food or other substance weakens (or strengthens) a patient, the food may placed under the tongue or held in the hand as a muscle is tested. Some practitioners may also assess emotional well-being by testing muscle strength while the patient imagines being in a troubling or tense situation or with a problematic person.
What is Applied Kinesiology used for?
Practitioners claim that applied kinesiology can be used to diagnose and treat nervous system problems, nutritional deficiencies or excesses, imbalances in the body’s “energy pathways” (known in Traditional Chinese Medicine as meridians), and many other health concerns.
What is NET?
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is a psycho-emotional therapy based on the physiological foundations of stress-related responses. As discovered in the late 1970’s, emotional responses are composed of neuropeptides (amino acid chains) and their receptors, which lie on neurons and other cells of remote tissues in the body. The neuropeptides are ejected from the neuron and carry the encoded “information” to other sites within the body. These neuropeptides are in a category of neurochemicals known as Information Substances (IS). IS’s are released at times of stress-related arousal and become attached to remotely-positioned neuroreceptors.
To make this more relatable, it must be understood that the body holds on to emotions that one has experienced from the beginning of life to present time. The subconscious mind remembers all of these experiences, including negative and traumatic ones. At any point in time, these emotions can be triggered and translate to pain on the physical level. Thus, the physiological status of the body, through the process of remembering, is emotionally replicating a similar physiological state that was found in the original conditioning event.
As we know, emotions can be a causative agent in many diseases, so this is a dangerous occurrence. The goal of neuro emotional technique is to correct the neuro emotional complex (NEC) – imprinted emotional information affecting physiological function.
Benefits of Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
Clinical experience has shown that NET may be used for a number of psycho-emotional issues, and that the benefits include:
- Accesses and ‘re-programs’ the subconscious
- Corrects neurological imbalances related to the physiology of unresolved stress, therefore reducing anxiety, phobias and worry
- Helps promote more fulfilling relationships with family, friends and colleagues
- Increased ability to achieve life dreams and desires
- Allows an individual to identify a limiting subconscious belief and understand its source
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is a safe, scientific, and simple way to access the unconscious. This technique helps identify the “hidden” causes/motivations of repetitive undesired choices which may result in physiological pain or in extreme cases, disease.
