Energy Psychology is a set of therapies that work directly on the body to produce psychological change. They bypass the process of talking extensively about past traumas, which often simply reinforces the negative experience. Instead, they make use of visualization or verbal statements to reframe problems, accompanied by very specific routines employing breathing, tapping, or massage. This combination of recall of past traumas, coupled with physical stimulation, has been found by thousands of ordinary people, as well as physicians, therapists, coaches, and psychiatrists, to produce startling and permanent relief of the emotional charge associated with traumatic events.
Extensive research has demonstrated a strong correlation between unprocessed emotional trauma and disease. People with unprocessed emotional wounds are thirty times more likely to attempt suicide, as well as having higher rates of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and depression. Energy Psychology assists healing by releasing the charge around emotional distress.
There are several established forms of Energy Psychology. These include Thought Field Therapy (TFT), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), and the Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT). Each of these routines takes just a few minutes to perform. Psychologists and doctors accustomed to long healing time for their clients are often startled at how quickly long-standing traumas can be resolved by Energy Psychology techniques.
