The Emotional Side
NET – Neuroemotional Technique is a bodymind technique. It is a physical technique that uses the Chinese meridian system to reduce the stress response in our bodies to emotional issues. NET may be incorporated into Chiro appointments in addition to regular adjustments. Jackie is also available for extended appointments to use NET as a stand-alone technique.

Jackie has completed a year long course in Integrated NeuroImmunology. This is a new field of study looking at the interrelationship of our neurology with our immune system. This is a protocol which works to calm and support the HPA axis (Hypothalamus Pituitary Axis) and the deficiencies which may drive some of our long term health challenges. Her special interest is adrenal fatigue syndrome, women’s health and pregnancy recovery.
