Energy Psychology, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT ) and Laughter Therapy
EFT or emotional freedom technique developed by Gary Craig uses a tapping technique on specific acupuncture points while stating specific statements to a related issue, emotion or condition. This technique involves stating the emotion you feel at a certain event, no matter how negative and then working through it. It uses Subjective Unit of Distress (SUD) to gage the progress. I use the Homo-lateral and Cross-Crawl of EEM as a preparatory technique because they enhance the effects of EFT
Laughter Therapy should really be part of Energy Psychology as it works on the emotions and puts one in a positive state for healing to take place. As the founder of Laughter Yoga, Dr. Madan Kateria stated it produces the laughter cocktail which means it releases endorphins (body’s natural pain killers), hormones and neuropeptides and increases levels of immunoglobin A1gA which provides immunity.
Forgiveness Therapy The Self-Forgiveness Process is vital before you can forgive anyone else. Using the work and research done by Dr. Guy Pettitt MD as well as techniques from EEM such as “expelling the venom” and “sending forgiveness through the body”, clients are able to forgive themselves and others in a shorter time than they can do on their own. Why is it vital to forgive? 1. It is a basic need and will make you happy2. Improves your will-power 3. Makes you stronger to confront injustices. 4. Improves your atmosphere 5. It is telepathic 6. It Empowers-You ‘...it cancels the conditions in oneself that are blocking the flow of love, independent of the behavior of anyone else or any other circumstances’. Guy Pettitt MD
This therapy goes in conjunction with previously mentioned therapies. Gratitude goes a long way in cementing healing that has already taken place. Included in all the Revitalizing Energy Therapies, there is a small but significant portion devoted to gratitude. This is usually done while tapping and it could also be done in affirmations and mini-meditations.
So there you have it, Revitalizing Energy therapies in a nutshell. No matter how detail an explanation, it is really in experiencing it that you will realize their effects in your life. No amount of words can do justice to any of the therapies that are found in Revitalizing Energy Therapies or RET but since I had so many requests, I obliged. However, asking more questions is always welcomed and that is why I give some mini courses and workshops that is posted on my website. I will always consider myself a student of all these therapies as I'm always learning something new in the application of all these Revitalizing Energy Therapies and sometimes from my clients in their practical application of RET.
My thanks go out to some incredible teachers, Donna Eden, Dr. David Feinstein, Gary Craig, Dr. Guy Pettitt and Dr. Madan Kateria and E. Chow. Thanks also goes out to my clients who expect nothing but the best in their healing journey!
