Energy Psychology

Energy psychology is a mind-body technique that combines exposure therapy with holistic techniques to spiritual healing. Energy psychology is deeply rooted in both western (exposure therapy) and eastern (holistic approaches) traditions. In exposure therapy, the client is exposed to a feared situation or object, or talks about a traumatic experience, in a safe environment. During this 'exposure,' a therapist will work to heal disturbances in the body's electrical fields, often via body tapping. Body tapping is a stimulation of pressure points, which helps the brain better regulate emotions during these disturbances. Think this approach might be right for you?

Advance Integrative Therapy (AIT) integrates talk therapy with a method of moving negative energy out of the body. I am specially trained in the use of standard protocols utilizing the energy centers along the chakra system. We work to energetically clear the initiating issues, which include what you present within my office, the originating occurrences from the past, and the energetic connections between them.

Energy psychology focuses on the flow of energy throughout our system and the Meridian points in our body. Sometimes when we experience things like trauma, grief, depression, or anxiety, our energy can get "stuck" or "blocked." I attended the ACEP 2022 conference in New Mexico where I took classes and learned about EFT tapping, element breathing, the Chakras, meditation, and other energy psychology interventions that can help with this!

— Taylor Leslie, Therapist in Inver Grove Heights, MN

I have found Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), a gentle mind-body energy , to be extremely effective in lessening anxiety, anger, and other strong emotions. It works with the body's meridian system to soothe out energy blockages in the body and has been found to reduce cortisol the body's anxiety hormone. It is also very useful in challenging limiting beliefs and patterns that continue to hold us back.

To holistically clear trauma and difficult unprocessed emotions and experiences, I employ Energy Psychology as a therapeutic approach. Emotional and energetic clearing, healing, and balancing are possible when addressing the energy centers or chakras with bioenergetics therapy and transpersonal therapeutic processes. This integrative modality has helped a lot of my clients heal, move past blocks, and transform their lives.

— Lina Návar, Licensed Professional Counselor in Austin, TX

To me, Energy psychology is an opportunity to tap into an unlimited flow of opportunity of how things can be. Often beyond your expectations. We do not need to stick with one approach or one technique. We need to see how the energy is flowing within you and we can use certain ancient practices to move things right again. The best part of this practice is that you feel the results within a few minutes. It is shocking how different you can feel within a few minutes of investment.

EFT (or “tapping”) is a highly focused energy psychology method that rapidly releases the emotional impact of stressful or traumatic life events from the body-mind system. As clients bring their attention to distressing memories and symptoms, practitioners walk them through a process of voicing specific statements while tapping on a series of acupuncture meridian points. This activation appears to reduce levels of stress while stimulating processing of previously stuck emotions & habit patterns.
