NET BODY-ENTRY PROTOCOL
Examine the region in lesion
A) Locate an active Trigger Point, a tender spot along a muscle within the lesion area.
Perform a muscle test on a healthy muscle, other than the muscle with the identified
trigger point. Note the general strength or tone of the muscle when lightly tested. Now the
practitioner places their index finger on the identified trigger point and retests the muscle.
If, on retest the muscle strength is now weaker then this indicates a so-called ‘body entry
B) Establish if an emotional issue is involved in the pathogenesis of the trigger point that is
being tested. The patient places their flat hand palm down across their forehead (The
Emotional Point-Walker 1996) whilst the therapist maintains contact on the active trigger
point with their index finger found in step 1. The Patient raises their other arm anterior
palm down to 90% activating the anterior deltoid muscle. The practitioner with their other
hand muscle tests the patient’s anterior deltoid by pushing down vertically at 90% on the
patient’s outstretched arm. If this muscle test also remains weak as initially induced in
step 1, then this protocol ceases as incorporating the contact on the forehead (emotional
points) did not elicit a change in muscle strength. Thus no emotional issue involved in the
pathogenesis of this particular trigger point that’s being contacted. If the muscle which, on
previous testing became weak now tests as strong, then this indicates that a so-called
‘Neuroemotional Complex’ (NEC) has been identified. An NEC is a subjective
maladaptation syndrome adopted by the human organism in response to a real or
perceived stress. The individual’s unique NEC contains;
o A specific subluxation or sequence of subluxations.
o A specific emotion
o A conditioned response: A predisposition for stimulus generalisation. A
resistance to extinction.
o A meridian imbalance and active pulse point.
o A facilitated or inhibited muscle.
o A specific active Meridian Acce
