There are new forms of psychotherapy sweeping the western world and they are grouped under the heading of Energy Psychology.
These new energy therapies are based on the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) and modern day Applied Kinesiology(AK). For thousands of years in TCM the emotions have always been accepted as part of the overall picture of a client's health problems.
It took the wisdom of an American Psychologist, Dr Roger Callahan to develop a psychological version of Acupuncture. In the last 20 years from Dr Callahan's work there has developed a number of truly amazing therapies all incorporating the same premise that
"the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system".
It seems it isn't our past memories that cause us stress and pain but the negative emotional energy charge that these memories stored in the acupuncture meridian/pathways.
"Until the energy pathways are cleared the memory will always cause stress to the mind and body"
So instead of trying to undo the thoughts or memories, which has been attempted by millions of people in therapy for many years, usually with highly unpredictable results, the energy based therapies directly intervene in the middle step, the disrupted energy flow.
Once the energy pathway has been fully cleared the person experiences no further pain or negative emotions from the original memory or thought.
50% of people will experience rapid results in 15 to 20 minutes, a further 30 to 40% with a little extra help will respond in 40 to 60 minutes. Only a very small percentage do not receive any change at all and this is usually the result of the person not following through with the techniques.
Each session involves gently tapping a sequence of energy points on the upper body with the fingertips, which releases the negative emotional charge.
Nothing else is used and the client doesn't have to discuss the problem, as long as they are inwardly focused on the problem, the tapping works.
It seems to be too good to be true and yet it only takes one session to experience the results. Once learnt it is easy to practise on yourself. It truly is the best self help technique for healing negative emotions.
From Dr Callahans work, Gary Craig created EFT. Gary wanted to make Dr Callahan's system easier and quicker. He decided to use all the 7 points for all problems and was able to produce the same great results as Dr Callahan.
With Gary's system everyone can learn to use EFT easily and quickly. It doesn't require special diagnostic training or even any knowledge of the body's energy system. Gary Craig called his system Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)
