NET & SOT GENTLE CHIROPRACTOR
Dr Vanesa Brkic is a Chiropractor that loves educating the community about the benefits of a healthy functioning spine and nervous system at every age. Vanesa discovered Chiropractic during year 12 after a friend suggested that it could help with her stress levels, as it was taking a toll on her body. This was a profound moment because not only did her stress improve, but she finally felt empowered to take control of her physical and emotional health. After this experience Vanesa decided she wanted to help others that are in the same situation she was once in.
In practice, Dr Vanesa utilises techniques to treat the body (with SOT) and the mind (with NET) as she believes that when the mind and body are aligned, you can harness your true potential.
SOT (Sacro Occipital Technique) is a gentle yet comprehensive technique which aims to restore the relationship between the cranium, pelvis, and the spine. These structures protect our central nervous system, the “control centre” for the entire body, and it is because of this deep relationship that makes SOT such an innovative technique.
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is a mind/body stress relief technique which helps to process neurological patterns associated with the physiology of unresolved emotional stress.
Human beings are emotional creatures. Whilst emotions are normal and very healthy, when they remain stagnant, this can create internal stress which may manifest physically in many different ways. Including (but not limited to) changes in heart rate or blood pressure, headaches, gut issues or increased muscle tension. With our society becoming more and more stressed, something needs to change. NET can assist the body’s healing process by detecting the core emotional stressors involved.
NET can also help us understand our behaviour patterns and emotional triggers. Have you ever overreacted in a situation and had no idea why? The subconscious beliefs we have (about ourselves, others, and the world) drive our thoughts, feeling and behaviours every single day. I am very passionate about bringing these beliefs and unresolved emotions to the surface so we can understand why we are the way we are.
Once we are aware of the beliefs that don’t serve us anymore, addressing them can empower us to take control of our lives.
