Energy Psychology is the latest discovery in psychology , combining the science of Chinese Medicine and traditional Psychology. It has been described as one of the most important breakthroughs in the area of psychology in this century. It represents a new paradigm in the field in that its theory is based on the principles of quantum physics, which is energy based.
It states that the cause of painful and limiting thoughts and emotions is related to a disruption in the body’s energy system. Any sense of feeling other than harmonious corresponds to a blockage in the energy field of the individual.
These blockages are cleared by tapping on specific acupuncture points, while tuning in to the negative emotions. The tapping creating a high vibrational energy, felt as relaxation and harmony, entrains the lower frequencies of vibration represented by negative thoughts and beliefs, and transforms them into higher vibrational energy.
In the 1980′s, Psychologist Roger Callahan Ph.D., developed a highly successful ‘tapping therapy’ which he called TFT (Thought Field Therapy). Some of his students modified his approach and created their own technique, the best known being EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) by Gary Craig.
EFT is the technique that I am using, as it is the simplest one and can be learnt in a very short time.
