Building upon conventional therapeutic methods, Energy Psychology utilizes techniques from acupressure, yoga, qi gong, and energy medicine that teach people simple steps for initiating changes in their inner lives. It works by stimulating energy points on the surface of the skin which, when paired with specific psychological procedures, can shift the brain’s electrochemistry to: Help Overcome Fear, Guilt, Shame, Jealousy, or Anger; Change Unwanted Habits and Behaviors; and Enhance the Ability to Love, Succeed, and Enjoy Life. While this is still a controversial area within the mental health field (the techniques look very strange and the claims of a growing number of practitioners seem too good to be true), evidence is mounting that these techniques are significant, powerful tools for both self-help and clinical treatment.
