Subluxations are state specific
In last month’s article we discussed that the subluxation is posture or state specific.
State/posture specifi c means that, when the patient assumes a certain posture or consciousness, a subluxation may emerge—a subluxation that was not present when they were comfortably standing, sitting or lying down. This phenomenon is called the posture of subluxation or POS.
Since most patients are analyzed and adjusted when prone, sitting or standing, subluxations in other postures are not revealed and, therefore, cannot be corrected.
Koren Specifi c Technique (KST) enables us to analyze and adjust patients when they assume different physical postures. However, the POS is not limited to physical posture; people can also have an emotional POS. KST also enables us to analyze and adjust patients when they assume different emotional postures.
It is no coincidence that the phrase “assuming a posture” may refer to an emotional or a physical stance.
The neutral emotional POS
Doctors usually analyze and adjust patients while the patient is in a neutral physical or neutral emotional posture. By neutral emotional posture, we are referring to the relatively relaxed and present-time interaction that occurs in an office.
However, by limiting our analysis and adjustments to patients in neutral emotional postures, we are not able to fi nd and correct subluxations that appear when the patient is in different emotional postures.
There is no purely physical person
Just as there is no purely physical person—we have psyche (soul/spirit/mind) as well as soma (body)—so there is no such thing as a purely physical health problem. Every physical health condition has emotional aspects (and every emotional condition has physical aspects). Emotional aspects may be of major importance or of minor importance, but they are always present. This understanding has been a cornerstone of many healing arts, including classical homeopathy.
Patients teach us
Patients teach us the power of emotions when they relate the following kind of story (with which most healers are familiar): “Doctor, I felt fi ne after the adjustment but, the moment I thought of my ex-wife, I was suffering again;” or, “When I think of the death of my parent, all the good you did for me disappeared;” or, “When I heard the screech of a car’s tires, all my subluxations returned.”
What happened? The patient assumed an “emotional posture” that created physical subluxations. We must care for patients while they are in emotional postures for more complete subluxation correction.
Why does this happen?
The field of psycho-neuro-immunology that explores the relationship between the mind, the nervous system, and the immune system may shed some light on this phenomenon. Research reveals emotions have a profound effect on our physiology. When we experience anger, fear, joy, grief, depression or other emotional states, we exhibit a multitude of corresponding physical changes. These include changes in blood chemistry, skin, sweat, voice, the respiratory system, the cardiovascular system, the digestive system, the hormonal system, the nervous system, vision, hearing, and much more.
Is it no surprise that our body structure also changes?
Demonstrate the emotional POS
The emotional POS is easily demonstrated. Adjust a patient so he/she is subluxation-free. Now, ask the patient to think of something emotionally charged. You will fi nd that their structural system (most commonly revealed in the cranial bones) has become subluxated again!
To locate subluxations relating to emotional states, we must put patients in an emotional posture (POS). While they are in that posture, we analyze and adjust them for subluxations. This simple procedure reveals a new world of healing.
Why weren’t the patients presenting this subluxation earlier? It is because they weren’t in that emotional posture; they weren’t accessing that information.
Like a computer
Let’s use a computer analogy. First, we run a particular program to locate a file within that program. The file can then be accessed and its contents read, edited, or otherwise manipulated.
People contain many “programs,” “files,” and even “sub-files.” For example, a person’s emotional world (program) contains many different relationships (files). There is a parent “file” and inside the parent “file” may be hundreds of “sub-files.” The various relationship “files” contain information on friends, siblings, spouses, pets, co-workers and each “file” may contain a plethora of “sub-files.”
The subluxation as a portal or gateway
When the fi le that needs to be accessed is opened and the subluxations associated with it are revealed, you can then correct those subluxations. If properly corrected, the next time that file is opened (the next time the patient assumes that emotional POS) there will be no subluxations.
People are filled with all kinds of emotional postures causing physical subluxations. For example, have a patient think of their ex-spouse. They are opening their ex-spouse file. That file is certainly filled with many different sub-files that can be accessed and the subluxations associated with those sub-files corrected.
Once corrected, a patient may find they are able to think of their ex or auto accident or failed test in college or other past event without getting flooded with all kinds of stresses interfering with their physical and/or emotional balance (homeostasis).
How do you locate an emotional POS?
Using Koren Specific Technique (KST), a patient is easily and quickly analyzed and adjusted in various physical and emotional POS’s.
There are a number of protocols that can be used to locate emotional issues. We will discuss these in the next article, Part Three.
Koren Specifi c Technique, developed by Tedd Koren, DC, is a quick and easy way to locate and correct subluxations anywhere in the body. It is gentle for the patient and the doctor. Patients hold their adjustments longer. KST practitioners can specifically analyze and adjust themselves. For seminar information go to www.teddkorenseminars.com or call 1-800-537-3001.

If the body is sick, the mind worries and the spirit grieves; if the mind is sick, the body and spirit will suffer from its confusion; if the spirit is sick, there will be no will to care for the body or mind. – J.R. Worsley
What happened to our connection?
We are born destined to live long, happy, healthy lives filled with love, energy, happiness, joy, inspiration, strength and peace. We are meant to live over 100 years in physical and mental health in harmony with the wisdom of life.
It is our birthright. It is our destiny.
But it doesn’t always seem that way. Too many lives are wracked by physical and mental disharmony, pain and disease. Too many die before their time.
What happened? How did we become disconnected from our essential nature, from our Source?
How do we reconnect?
Over a hundred years ago, the chiropractic profession discovered a major disconnection that affects the health of many individuals, called the vertebral subluxation. It was defined as a spinal distortion that interferes with the function of the nervous system and diminishes the connection between an individual and his/her natural inborn or innate healing ability/wisdom/perfection.
If a patient says, "It hurts when I do that...," then have them "do that".
The goal of the chiropractor was to locate and correct or adjust these sources of disconnection. The abbreviation DC not only means Doctor of Chiropractic but can also mean Doctor of Connection.
Adjusting subluxations is chiropractic’s unique contribution to healthcare. It is a powerful tool in bringing health, harmony and wholeness to a sick and suffering humanity. Chiropractic subluxation correction improves so many aspects of an individual’s well-being: body structure, brain function, immunological function, mental health and a multitude of diseases to which the flesh is heir.
Mental illness, in particular, responded so well that a number of chiropractic sanitariums and day hospitals were founded. The best known, Forest Park and Clear View, both in Davenport, Iowa, existed for over 40 years, reporting success rates that far exceeded those of state (allopathic) mental hospitals.
The posture of subluxation
We, more recently, have developed a simple yet powerful way to vastly improve the effectiveness of subluxation correction. It is based on the discovery that subluxations are posture specific and, when a patient is placed in the posture of subluxation (POS), formerly undetected subluxations are revealed and are amenable to correction.
What is meant by posture specific? It simply means that, as we assume different postures, our body structure reveals different subluxations.
There are many POS's. The most common is the physical POS.
Chiropractic care has traditionally addressed the patient’s subluxation while they are in a neutral POS: the patient is analyzed and adjusted while lying on a table, standing or sitting comfortably.
That has given us many excellent results, but not all subluxations are revealed when the patient is in a neutral posture.
A common example will easily clarify this: a patient feels fine after being adjusted while lying on a chiropractic table. However, after they get up and assume a certain physical posture they are subluxated again: "I felt fine after the adjustment but when I go like this I feel terrible again." That is an indication that you missed something in your care.
What did you miss?
You missed the subluxation that occurred when the patient assumed a specific physical posture.
We are all familiar with the golfer who only feels pain or limitation at a certain position in his/her swing, the pitcher or quarterback who feels pain or limitation when holding the ball in a certain position or other instances where a change in posture reveals dysfunction.
For example, a musician had terrible pains when playing his guitar on stage. While the patient was standing and sitting, his subluxations were adjusted but when he held the guitar he was subluxated again. His subluxations were then corrected while playing and his terrible pains on stage never returned.
Who discovered this?
These concepts were first brought to the author’s attention by Lowell Ward, DC, of Long Beach, CA, developer of Spinal Column Stressology. Dr. Ward had a patient who felt fine standing but, when sitting, suffered from intense sciatica pain. X-rays revealed little on her standing films, but her sedentary films showed severe spinal and global misalignments. Now similar discoveries are reported when comparing standing and sitting MRI's.
How do we use this information?
If subluxations are posture specific then we must analyze patients when in the posture of subluxation (POS) and then adjust them while they are in that posture.
How can you do this?
If a patient says, "It hurts when I do that…," then have them "do that." Put them in that posture of subluxation because that’s when the subluxation reveals itself and is most amenable to correction.
Emotional posture of subluxation
The POS is not limited to physical postures. It is perhaps no coincidence that, when we say someone "assumes a posture," we may be referring to an emotional as well as a physical stance.
Just as a person may reveal a subluxation when put in a physical posture, so a subluxation may be revealed when the person is placed in an emotional posture (or emotional state).
This will be discussed in next month’s article.

Your immune system works to keep you 100% natural, organic, unadulterated, you! It recognizes and destroys bacteria, viri, pollutants, dust, pollen, drugs, tumors, debris and artificial substances (metal and plastic, however, don’t trigger an immune reaction).
Many things influence how well your immune system functions: your nervous system, endocrine system, diet, genes and emotions.1-3
Allergens and allergies
The most common immune system disorder is the allergy that occurs when the immune system overreacts to an allergen (dust, pollen, milk, dog or cat dander, strawberries, etc.) and the body produces too many neutralizing chemicals (especially histamines) in response.
What causes allergies?
There is increasing evidence that the cause of allergies is childhood vaccinations; they cause immune system hypersensitivity.
[Childhood vaccinations are responsible for] allergies and immune system abnormalities: food allergies (wheat and milk especially), arthritis, lupus, celiac disease, pernicious anemia…. Respiratory problems: asthma and SIDS (due to vagus nerve palsy).4
The medical approach
Orthodox medicine has no cure for allergies, only treatment of symptoms. Since many allergy symptoms—runny eyes, irritation, redness, fullness in the sinuses and others—are caused by histamines, antihistamines are often prescribed to dry mucous membranes. However, antihistamines can cause heart problems5 and should not be used with alcohol, sedatives or tranquilizers.
The chiropractic approach
Allergy sufferers have praised chiropractic care for over a century. Chiropractic care is not a treatment for allergies though. The goal of chiropractic care is to locate and correct subluxations—serious nervous system stress. Chiropractic enables the immune system to function more effectively, something all allergy sufferers need since a nervous system with less stress functions more efficiently.
KST and allergies
After developing Koren Specific Technique (KST), I was often asked if it could address allergies. I’m happy to report that doctors are finding that KST can be used as a simple, yet powerful, procedure to help allergy sufferers.
The allergy "posture"
First the patient is analyzed and adjusted so they are cleared out: no subluxations. Now the patient is put in the "posture" of the allergy.
How is that done?
It is rather simple to do. All you do is tell the patient to think of their allergy. While they are thinking of it, their body will subluxate into their "allergy pattern."
Now the allergy pattern must be located. I have found this is best done using a dynamic bio-indicator analysis system that is quickly able to locate subluxations. Bio-indicators are used by applied kinesiology (AK); muscle weakness, directional non-force technique (DNFT™) and Activator™ (a derivative of DNFT); the short leg reflex, Toftness ™; skin autonomic response and others.
KST employs the occipital drop (OD) that was discovered by Lowell Ward, DC, developer of Spinal Column Stressology, as a bio-indicator. Dr. Ward discovered that the occiput/mastoid area of the skull will appear to lower on the left when the person is stressed by a subluxation. By using the OD, the patient does not need to lie down to be checked and there is no muscle fatigue.
To continue the allergy protocol: While the patient is thinking of their allergy, the practitioner locates the subluxations that appear. In most cases, the subluxation involves the left and right greater wings of the sphenoid (anterior) and occipital bone (inferior).
In addition, sometimes a subluxation will involve the temporal or upper thoracic.
Now, the correction.
As the patient is thinking of their allergy, their subluxations are corrected or adjusted. I find an adjusting instrument works best, as this permits the patient to stay in one position while the force/energy/information (adjustment) can be directed specifically.
Next, ask the patient to think of the allergen again. There should be no OD. If there is an OD, go through the analysis and adjustment again. You may have missed something.
Are we finished?
Not quite. We have to see if the patient’s relationship with the allergen has been completely defused. Now ask the patient to think about the allergy from a different angle. For example, tell the patient, "Imagine taking the allergen and putting it in your mouth." Then test for an OD. If you get it, locate and correct their subluxations (usually they will be the same ones you already corrected).
Try other statements to defuse the allergy. Tell the patient to imagine how they feel when they have an allergic reaction. Tell them to imagine breathing the allergen. Tell them to imagine clear sinuses or being free of other allergy symptoms.
Go through a number of these exercises until you simply can’t elicit an OD from the patient.
It’s usually that simple. You may find an emotional reaction associated with the allergy, but that’s rare.
What exactly are we doing?
As with other allergy elimination protocols (i.e., NAET, JMT) we appear to be breaking a neurological reflex that causes the patient to overreact to an allergen.
With KST, we find that, when putting patients in the toxin posture of subluxation and adjusting them while in that posture, the allergy reflex is broken.
KST is a refinement in locating and correcting subluxations. Using KST procedures, chiropractors can easily and quickly locate and correct subluxations as they reveal themselves in any posture—physical, emotional or chemical.
Koren Specific Technique, developed by Tedd Koren, D.C., is a quick and easy way to locate and correct subluxations; it is gentle and low-force. Using KST, practitioners can specifically analyze and adjust themselves. For seminar information, go to www.teddkorenseminars.com or call 1-800-537-3001. Write to Dr. Koren at

How did you know that?
Picture the scene. I’m checking people during a recent Masters Circle seminar using Koren Specific Technique (KST). I had just given a talk. The line of doctors and CA’s waiting to be adjusted was long.
As I expect, people are having incredible responses. But what’s often most fascinating is the ability to tell them what their problems are just from doing a structural analysis. It often goes something like this:
"Your left and right pubic bones are inferior. That usually causes sacroiliac (SI) pain."
"Yes, that’s what I suffer from."
"Your femur heads are anterior; this causes exhaustion."
"I’m tired all the time."
"Your hyoid is subluxated; this can cause snoring."
"I snore terribly. My wife will be thrilled."
"Your sphenoids are out of position; that can cause headaches, migraines, depression, brain fog, moodiness and insomnia."
"Right, on all of the above."
"You have an upper thoracic hump pattern. That affects your ability to take a deep breath. Your heart, lungs and thyroid may be affected also. In addition, whenever there’s a hump, I usually find a subluxation in the lower mid thoracics and the person has lower back pain."
"Wow, that’s me. I always have a bad area no one can adjust around T8 and my low back pain never goes away."
Using KST, I refer to the patient’s occipital drop of the skull as a quick and easy bio-indicator to get a yes/no response. This is similar to bio-indicators used with other disciplines such as applied kinesiology and the short leg reflex. The response is often something like, "How the hell could you tell that from my skull? My knee was hurt in a car accident ten years ago. How did you know…? Are you psychic or something? This is amazing."
I’m feeling good
So all this detective work, all these "hits," are making a big impression. Since there’s a big crowd around me, everyone watching is impressed. I’m feeling pretty good. I’m very proud of KST and the results we’re getting.
Then someone throws a monkey wrench into the works.
Nope, nope, nope and nope
So the next patient is a guy in pretty good shape. Let’s see what he’s got.
"Your temporals are out. People with subluxated temporal bones often have dizziness, ringing in the ears, hearing problems, balance, ear problems…."
"Nope. None of those."
"Well, OK, it’s not 100%. Everyone’s body is different. Hmmm, you have a lateral sternum; this often causes heart issues such as a skipped beat, perhaps panic or anxiety attacks. Sometimes you might feel heart pain or as if you’re getting a heart attack…."
"OK, here you have a sinus pattern. Your nasal/front and nasal/maxilla areas are jammed up. Do you have any sinus trouble? Breathing problems?"
"You’ve got counter-rotation of L4 and L5. This usually causes a lot of back pain, perhaps sciatica…."
I’m starting to sweat
I’m losing the audience. Hostile glares. People are grabbing rotten fruit to throw. Obviously, he’s a medical plant to make me look bad. OK, I’m exaggerating. But what’s wrong here?
I’ve found, when stumped, the best thing is to ask the patient. Patients know themselves better than any doctor and, since this is a chiropractic group, their awareness is fairly good.
I ask, "I’m at a loss. Usually people feel these symptoms I’ve asked about. Why do you think your subluxations aren’t bothering you?"
"That’s probably because I work out all the time. If I miss even one day, I feel terrible."
Now I remembered: the power of exercise.
When I was suffering and badly subluxated after my injury, no chiropractor was able to give me any lasting help. My hands were in constant pain, I couldn’t do a push-up; I couldn’t make a fist; my wrists always felt tight.
In desperation, I started lifting weights. It seemed counter-intuitive but, after one session, my hands felt better. I kept lifting and my hand, elbow, shoulder and arm pains eased up tremendously.
Exercise is good
So, when I realized that exercise was good, I looked around in the gym I belong to. There are loads of people who may not want to work out; they have to—otherwise they’re in lots of pain. Exercise does work.
What is going on?
Why is exercise so powerful? I’m sure that is best answered by exercise physiologists if the research has been done.
But are people who exercise still subluxated?
Yes, but their subluxations aren’t bothering them so much.
Is there still some damage going on? Will their subluxations ultimately catch up to them?
My guess is yes. Eventually their bodies will start to show the wear and tear (subluxation degeneration) from abnormal stresses on their joints, discs, nerves and connective tissue that cannot be denied and they’ll graduate from exercise to drugs and surgery. That is unless a good chiropractor gets to them first. Luckily, I discovered KST and adjusted myself back to wellness.
One final observation…
Apart from exercise people, there is (so far) one other type that doesn’t feel what they should feel. I discovered this also at the Masters Circle.
I’m working on a patient and getting, "No, no, no, no," to all the things I’m finding. She doesn’t work out. What’s going on? Remember the cardinal rule—ask the patient.
I asked her directly, "Are you the kind of person who denies her feelings?"
Her answer was completely honest, "Yes, I sacrifice for others all the time. I don’t do anything for myself."
Such a patient needs an emotion-mind-body procedure using KST, or NET and KST or NET by itself to disrupt this unhealthy mind-body reflex and get them in touch with their feelings.
So far, that’s where we are. If you have discovered other aspects of the "nope" patient, please write to me.

Today we have a lot of procedures and techniques available to help our patients. As chiropractors, we try to figure out what is the best approach for each of our patients and apply our skills to assist the body in its natural healing process.
So, what is the best technique for your patients?
The answer, of course, is the one that helps the patient get better. And that could mean more than one technique if the condition is complex, compromised, and/or multi-layered. Most of the techniques available today are great, and many of them dovetail together in an incredible way to help us address other factors (… there may be more than one) that can contribute to a patient’s ill health.
Many chiropractors use a model called the Triad of Health, which lists the structural, biochemical, and emotional components of a patient’s condition.
D.D. Palmer, educated us with these principles when he said, "The determining causes of disease are traumatism, poison, and autosuggestion."1 In D.D.’s time traumatism referred to the structural side, poisons referred to biochemical issues, and autosuggestion was how they talked about the emotional component of health.
It’s important to note that sometimes more than one side of the triad can contribute to our patients’ problems. A simplified analogy could be made using a plant in your garden that’s not doing too well. You know it needs good soil, water, and sunlight to properly grow. You notice it’s a bit root bound and re-plant it in a bigger container with good soil. However, this doesn’t seem to help very much. You give it the proper amount of water and, still, it fails to thrive. Finally, you decide to move it to a different location, changing the amount of natural sunlight it receives and, voila, it begins to respond and flourishes into the beautiful specimen it was naturally meant to be. In this case, addressing more than one factor helped the other elements work even better!
Finding the Techniques to Help Your Patients.
First of all, do what you normally do. If optimum health is restored, you probably don’t need to investigate the situation any further. However, if you find yourself doing the same thing every visit and the patient’s condition is stalled out, you may want to consider other techniques in the Structural-Biochemical-Emotional model of the Triad of Health.
I. The Structural Side of the Triad. As chiropractors, we are experts in this area. We’ve been highly trained in working with the structural side of a patient’s condition and know the results are usually dramatic when the patient’s only need is a chiropractic adjustment. Ongoing training and continuing education offer us new approaches and many excellent techniques to enhance our skills in delivering the miraculous and often life-changing structural correction that is the backbone of our profession. If you feel you need more structural support, check almost anywhere (this journal, the internet, conferences, talk to other practitioners, etc.) and you’ll most likely find more valuable tools to add to your healthcare toolbox. The good news is that the structural techniques you’re presently using are probably working better than you think, and they may only need to be "supercharged" by addressing another side of the Triad.
II. The Biochemical Side of the Triad. This is an area where many of us are very knowledgeable. We know good nutrition is essential and that the body’s vitamin and mineral balance is key in the overall natural healing process. We also know that toxins (internal and external) can influence our patient’s response to healthcare. Again, there are many seminars available that offer techniques that can help us address this side of the Triad. Sometimes, having your patients keep a nutritional diary of what they intake and how they feel can identify problem areas. Just taking a look at sugar intake/metabolism (blood sugar) and addressing vitamin B deficiencies can sometimes produce the miracle result that pulls what you’re already doing all together. Homeopathy is also often helpful in supporting stressed and toxic systems in the body.
III. The Emotional Side of the Triad. This refers to the emotional/physiological response or, said more simply, the mind/body component of health. Here, in chiropractic practice in the last century, is where the symmetry of the equilateral triangle often falls short. For most chiropractors, the chemistry of the aberrant emotional response and its physical manifestations are often difficult to diagnose. Left unaddressed, this can produce a Triad of Health that is grossly out-of-balance.
While the full process of the emotional/physiological response in the body is healthy, it can sometimes be interrupted and fail to reach full completion. When this happens, outside similar circumstances can trigger a conditioned emotional response.2 Just as Pavlov’s dog linked the sound of a bell with being fed, events and situations in life can trigger chronic mind/body responses in our patients. In fact, it’s very possible that those stubborn recurrent subluxations you see in your office (You know, the T4 you adjust on Mrs. Jones every time she comes in.) have a mind/body component. Neuro Emotional Technique® (NET) is one of the techniques available that can help the chiropractor quickly identify if there’s a mind/body component connected to a chronic subluxation, and offers a correction method (using a specific chiropractic adjustment) that can be performed in 3-5 minutes.
As an example, let’s revisit Mrs. Jones’ chronic T4. Using muscle testing, we start with a strong muscle in the clear. Then we contact T4, and the muscle test is weak, indicating there’s a problem in this area. Now, while still contacting T4, we add (2-point) the Emotional Neurovascular Reflex3 (located bilaterally, halfway between the eyebrows and the natural hairline, directly above the pupils) and retest to find the muscle test has now changed to strong. This is indicative of a mind/body component that is very likely re-triggering this chronic subluxation. We correct by first finding a liver meridian associated with anger (about her present-day job), and then we make a specific chiropractic adjustment that’s related to the liver.4 Retesting T4, we now find the muscle test is strong. Even more exciting, the next time Mrs. Jones comes in, T4 is holding fine, and she feels great physically, as well as doesn’t mind going to work now!
How does that work? NET dovetails many principles, including acupuncture, chiropractic, general semantics, muscle testing, neurology, and psychology, in a laser-like diagnostic and treatment approach that has benefited tens of thousands of grateful patients with better health and well being. NET utilizes the principle that muscles move bones, rather than bones move muscles. And emotions can move muscles. Science has demonstrated emotions are physiologically based (rather than psychologically) and have a pronounced effect on striated and non-striated muscles. When asked by Bill Moyers where emotion "is," renowned scientist Candace Pert, Ph.D., provided a succinct answer: The old barriers between brain and body are breaking down.… The chemicals that mediate emotion and the receptors for those chemicals are found in almost every cell in the body.5
NET was has been taught to thousands of chiropractors around the world and is effective in a wide variety of conditions (see research at www.onefoundation.org/article_symopsis.html). NET was never developed as a stand-alone technique, but rather as a supercharger for your present techniques. NET is a safe, effective, and natural way to quickly resolve long-standing physical problems that have an emotional component.
Supercharging Your Results
In the initial phase of using any technique, the practitioner has no choice but to have faith in its efficacy. If the practitioner puts his/her faith in a technique, learns how to do the procedure, and trusts the muscle testing, it will not be long until he/she will get the satisfaction of results. Results are the final standard!
The practitioner must keep in mind that medicine, nutrition, homeopathy, acupuncture, etc., have never healed one person; the only thing that ever healed anybody is the inherent life force. The practitioner’s art is to clear the way for this life energy by using whatever "tools" are available. This labor is a high calling, a high duty, a privilege. By honoring that which heals, then, and only then, the practitioner can be fulfilled in life. If each moment in the office is service-directed, without thought of monetary gain, intuitions may flood in, right words occur, and satisfaction will descend upon the healer.
Dr. Scott Walker graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1965 and developed Neuro Emotional Technique® (NET) in the early 1980’s. Dr. Walker is also the developer of a line of homeopathic products, NET Remedies, and the co-owner of The Home Run Practice, a practice management approach that uses NET.
