“Emotional distress and physical pain are not all in our heads. They are locked in the energetic pathways of our body. This is why years of traditional psychotherapy do not cure PTSD or phobias. Energy psychology techniques quickly release the trapped energy and bring about a perceptual shift in the subject of distress. I have seen miracles happen when I use them with clients.” Kalie
Energy Psychology is a family of mind/body techniques that are clinically observed to consistently help with a wide range of psychological conditions. These interventions address the human vibrational matrix, which consists of three major interacting systems:
- Energy pathways (meridians and related acupoints)
- Energy centers (chakras)
- Human biofield (systems of energy that envelop the body)
These techniques are also helpful in promoting high-level mind-body health and peak performance in the physical, mental and creative arenas of life. This is a partial list of my favorites.
EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing™ is the best researched and most highly recommended trauma treatment available. It provides a way for people to free themselves from the resulting destructive memories and behaviors. EMDR’s bilateral stimulation is highly effective for alleviating symptoms, even in cases where years of conventional therapy haven’t worked, such as in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I have personally seen miraculous results using EMDR™.
EMDR™ has been listed as an effective treatment by the American Psychiatric Association, Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, and numerous international agencies. More than a dozen controlled clinical trials support the use of EMDR™ for trauma such as that resulting from natural disaster, and EMDR™ has been used successfully to treat war and terrorism related trauma. With little modification, EMDR™ has been used successfully in response to a variety of mass-casualty events, and can be integrated with educational formats.
EMDR™ has an impact on intrusive imagery (such as nightmares and flashbacks), numbing, and hyperarousal symptoms of PTSD, as well as on associated grief and depression. In several direct comparisons with cognitive-behavioral therapy, EMDR™ offers equivalent effects more quickly (fewer sessions or no homework), process analyses indicate less distress for individuals undergoing treatment. www.emdr.com
EFT: Emotional Freedom Technique™ demonstrates that the release from pain and fear can be easy. Based on impressive new discoveries involving the body’s subtle energies, EFT has been proven clinically effective (over 80%) for trauma, abuse, stress, anxiety, fears, phobias, depression, grief, addictive cravings, children’s issues, and hundreds of physical symptoms including headaches, body pains, and breathing difficulties. The beauty of EFT is that anyone can learn to do it and use it between sessions to help themselves. Click here to read more about EFT.

PSYCH-K™: Changing subconscious beliefs that may be sabotaging well-intentioned actions is similar to reprogramming a personal computer. Using PSYCH-K™ techniques, a kind of “mental keyboard” to your own brain, you can increase “cross talk” between the two brain hemispheres, thereby achieving a more “whole-brained” state, which is ideal for changing subconscious beliefs. In addition, when right and left hemispheres of the brain are in simultaneous communication, the qualities and characteristics of both hemispheres are available to maximize your full response potential to life’s challenges.
FasterEFT™ is a methodology developed by Robert G. Smith after many years of studying and working with thousands of people. It is a collection of new, cutting-edge techniques and processes that integrates the most effective elements of EFT, BSFF, NLP, spiritual understanding, science and the mind’s great ability to transform itself. One of the most significant aspects of FasterEFT™ is that it is fast, direct and to the point. It is a healthy and logical belief system that is easily accepted. With this great mix of understanding, FasterEFT™ can quickly transform how you represent your past, shift your emotional disruptions and restore your physical health.
DNMS: Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy™ is an experiential technique that helps you build a strong relationship with your guidance and inner resources to heal the wounded child within. DNMS synthesizes a number of well-known therapies and disciplines, such as neuroscience, developmental psychology, ego state therapy, inner-child work, and EMDR. It is based on what is known about how a child’s brain develops within a healthy family. The DNMS helps resolve symptoms that originated with unmet childhood needs. It is helpful for treating depression, anxiety, complex PTSD, panic disorder, social phobias, substance abuse, sexual abuse, eating disorders, obsessions/compulsions, borderline personality disorder, sexual addiction, relationship problems, dissociative disorders, and complicated grief.
Seemorg Matrix Work™ provides relief from a range of intractable psychological disorders, physical diseases, allergenic symptoms and spiritual impasses. Starting from the premise that all upsetting events are types of trauma, and that they are housed within the body, mind and spirit, Seemorg Matrix Work™ removes the after-effects of such traumatic events. Seemorg Matrix Work™ clears the traumatic residue such as disturbing emotions, negative beliefs and attitudes, destructive desire and fantasies, addictions, compulsions, obsessions, dissociation, spiritual blockage, physical abreaction, sensitivities and disease.
Seemorg Matrix Work™ transforms negative character structures into positive ones, thus allowing therapists to successfully treat personality disorders, dissociative disorders, non-psychotic paranoid disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. To do this, therapists learn how to access unconscious material through ideomotor cueing (muscle testing), and how to move energy through the body’s major energy centers (chakras) to eliminate symptoms, their cause and after-effects.
TAT™ is an easy process for ending traumatic stress, fear, phobias and suffering and creating a happier life. TAT™ is a new, simple and effective technique that delivers inner peace, relaxation, more vibrant health and empowerment in minutes. TAT™ is one of the simplest and most effective modalities in Energy Psychology. TAT™ combines lightly holding a few acupressure points on your head (the TAT™ pose) and putting your attention on a problem. This seems to dissipate the trauma, thus releasing the grip of negative thoughts and emotions that may arise from the traumatic incident. (www.tatlife.com)
