A recent area of growth in psychotherapy is the use of body-based treatments that activate specific nervous system centers and pathways. A variety of effective energy therapies have been developed in recent decades that offer an alternative to traditional talk therapy in the alleviation of emotional and behavioral problems. These methods are safe, non invasive, fast acting and can be learned to be self-administered without needing your therapist to be present. Because so many physical and medical problems are often related to emotional states, the use of energy therapies for emotional relief sometimes is accompanied by reduction of physical symptoms as well.
Examples of well researched energy therapies are:
- Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
- Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT)
- Heart Math (Cardiac Coherence)
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
- Brain wave regulation
Energy therapies have been effectively used for reduction of distress due to traumatic memories, anxiety, self-esteem, sadness due to loss or feelings of rejection, performance enhancement and sleep improvement. Energy therapies have become recognized as powerful complementary and alternative treatment modalities.
I am able to provide treatment with energy therapies as an adjunct to ongoing psychotherapy. I am trained and certified in the use of a variety of energy therapies for a wide range of mind/body issues.
