"The cell is a machine driven by energy. It can thus be approached by studying matter, or by studying energy. In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy."
Albert Szent-Gyorgi (Nobel Laureate in Energy) -
As quoted by David Feinstein in The Promise of Energy Psychology
Therapists and medical professionals have become increasingly drawn to the ways in which energy fields inside and outside our bodies influence the state of our well-being.
As such, a relatively new field of investigation and experimentation, Energy Psychology, is being pursued by both the scientific and lay communities. The techniques being explored lean heavily on ancient bodies of knowledge such as acupuncture and acupressure.
The resources below are largely references to a process called the Emotional Freedom Technique, (EFT) which is currently finding favor among both professional and lay communities due to the ease with which it can be learned, and due to its 20+ year history of often dramatic and immediate results.
While I use EFT sparingly, and only when my clients show an interest in it, I encourage everyone to take a moment to consider its potential in their lives. The resources itemized below are peeled off an unlimited list. I have picked them out to make it easier for people to introduce themselves to this new mental-health tool, without becoming immediately overwhelmed by it.
