What is NETT – Neural Engagement Therapy and Training?
NETT can be defined as any therapy or training technique that looks at the influence on the Nervous System as the key reason for its action or effect. This definition encompasses many practices, but understanding the functions and interactions between the Central Nervous System, the Enteric Nervous System and the Autonomic Nervous System provides a practitioner or trainer an ability to provide better Therapy and Performance interventions.
NETT Global has two priorities
- To provide an education platform to practitioners and trainers to disseminate current and practical information regarding NETT techniques.
- To create a network (nationally and globally) of therapists, coaches and practitioners across all disciplines who understand the importance of the Nervous system in Therapy and Performance Training.
Neural Engagement Therapy and Training (NETT) refers to a range of interventions and techniques that target different areas of the nervous system to help clients manage pain and improve performance.
NETT encompasses a variety of widely researched modalities fused together to create a very unique and cutting-edge approach to therapy and training. Branches of Science and practices that have the greatest impact on NETT include:
- Neuro-anatomy and Neuro-physiology
- Functional Neurology
- Human Complexity Science
- Exercise Physiology
- Nutritional Medicine
- Flow State and Breathing
NETT Rehabilitation is at the cutting edge of rehabilitative and performance based therapy.
Whether you are seeking to upgrade your current professional knowledge, offer more services to your patients/clients, or would simply like to be across this revolutionary therapy and its surrounding science, the knowledge gained from studies in NETT will be a powerful asset.
About the Creators of NETT
The concepts and theory behind NETT rehabilitation and performance based therapy has been created and modified by Victor Popov, Leo Young and Paul Michael.
About Paul Michael –
After graduating in 2001 Paul spent his first years as a physiotherapist working at the Gold Coast Hospital and then abroad in England. From these humble beginnings Paul’s passion for delivering a quality service in private practice has evolved together with a wide variety of skills to apply to every complaint that comes through the door.
With a thirst for new knowledge Paul has spent countless hours learning as much as he can about the art of clinical therapy and has on the side also completed his business masters (MBA). He now pursues study in the field of neuroscience and integrates this with his background in physiotherapy to create a wider viewpoint for client assessments and treatments.
