How I Became a Happy Consumer of Energy Medicine

How I Became a Happy Consumer of Energy Medicine

Fifteen years ago, while living in San Diego, I picked up a newspaper to read while eating breakfast. An article about a local chiropractor caught my attention. Apparently he had developed a technique that investigated and treated emotional underpinnings to physical complaints.

Because I was interested in the mind-body connection and had plenty of physical complaints, one in particular that was causing discomfort and pain, I was intrigued. The chiropractor, Dr. Scott Walker, was nearby in Encinitas, so I decided to make an appointment to experience his Neuro Emotional Technique (NET).

Several days later I arrived for my appointment, eager to meet Dr. Walker. Unfortunately, he was out of town, conducting an NET training seminar. Another chiropractor who had been trained in the technique was holding down the fort.

Our session began with a brief explanation of the technique. Then the doctor acknowledged that NET sounded rather strange and asked if I wanted to try it. “Sure,” I said, and we got down to business.

The technique uses muscle testing (applied kinesiology), so the doctor asked me to hold out my arm and resist his effort to press my arm down while he lightly touched various points on my body. While touching a particular point, in the vicinity of my physical complaint, my shoulder muscle went weak and my arm dropped when pressed. Then he asked me to place my hand over my forehead while he touched the point again. This time my arm couldn’t be budged when pressed.

Hmmm. That sudden strengthening apparently indicated an emotional component in play. The muscle testing had already revealed which organ was having trouble; now he had to determine which emotion was involved. The technique, in addition to drawing on applied kinesiology for diagnostics, also drew on a concept from acupuncture — that specific emotions affect specific organs.

To find the emotion, the doctor began stating each emotion that was correlated with the organ while pressing on my outstretched arm. My arm collapsed when he said a particular emotion. The weakening of my muscles indicated that somehow that emotion was involved.

The next step was to determine an original event that had involved the same physiological reaction. My body had recorded the memory of the event, including the physiological response. Now, something in the present had triggered that memory (subconsciously), bringing up the same physical pain. Using muscle testing, the doctor began to search for the original event.
