Energy Psychology is an emergent field of psychology, officially recognized by the APA in 2012. It encompasses many different mind-body health methods that combine energy techniques with cognitive processing to shift the energetic and emotional blocks held in the body from past traumas.
Two Energy Psychology techniques that I use regularly with my clients are EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Matrix Reimprinting.
EFT and Matrix Reimprinting are two incredibly powerful mind-body health techniques for getting rid of all kinds of issues from phobias and traumas to limiting beliefs. While EFT alone can work wonders, Matrix Reimprinting takes the work of EFT to the quantum level by working within the Matrix, which is the energy field that encompasses various fields of consciousness. See below for more detailed information on both EFT and Matrix Reimprinting, and how I use both of these in sessions.
EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique, an Energy Psychology therapy developed by Gary Craig, which has its roots in the mind-body health techniques of Thought Field Therapy and Meridian Tapping. It is perhaps the most widely known self-help technique in our culture today because of its effectiveness in resolving traumas, phobias, limiting beliefs, anxiety, and many other issues quickly and effectively when compared to traditional talk therapy or other approaches. It is also increasingly being used in the field of performance enhancement. See more mind-body health connections related to EFT in this huge article library.
The beauty of EFT is that it is fast, incredibly effective, and very user-friendly, meaning that once you learn the basic procedure you can resolve many issues on your own at home. However, it's best to avoid working directly on severe trauma on your own, this should be done with a practitioner.
Most people can make speedy progress releasing old, outdated beliefs and behavior patterns that have held them back in life, and opening the door to new perspectives and a new experience of life.
I offer EFT as part of Energy Medicine sessions when it is apparent that a belief or trauma must be addressed in order for the energies in the body to shift.
Mind-body health issues commonly addressed with EFT:
Matrix Reimprinting was developed by Karl Dawson, seen in the video above, as a spin-off from his work as a Master of EFT. The name Matrix Reimprinting (MR) references the universal energy Matrix that surrounds us all, and which, in theory, holds all of our memories.
When you do MR, you tap into this field and alter the energetic imprints of the memories that are held there, replacing negative emotions with positive ones. This can effectively erase the negative impact of an event, and can have a huge reversal of the impact in the current life of the client.
You can also address larger lifelong themes through specific memories, and the beliefs created around those themes, that still play out for the client in the present. Though you use the same EFT tapping sequence in MR, it is a much less emotional process than EFT alone.
The truly amazing thing about MR is that it can leave you feeling as if a traumatic event never actually happened. This creates radical shifts in one's perspective and life experience in a very short time.

People tend to run old "programs," that set the foundation for emotional and behavioral patterns. With Energy Psychology tecnniques, it's possible to dismantle these programs to the point that they no longer exist in the system.
Unlike behavioral therapies, erasing programs with Energy Psychology means you no longer need to work at changing out-dated behavior patterns, because they change automatically when the programs change.
