EnergyMatters offers treatment for adults, couples, families, adolescents and children.  We pair energy-based treatments with traditional psychotherapy methods that build on people’s strengths and resources to overcome emotional, mental and spiritual barriers to healing.

ENERGY PSYCHOLOGY

The prevailing premise of Energy Psychology is that the flow and balance of the body's electromagnetic field and more subtle energies are important for physical and emotional health.  You may have heard of subtle energy through such terms as life force, chi, meridians, chakras, biofields or auras.  These energies are called "subtle" because they are not easily detectable and scientists have not yet been able to develop instruments to reliably measure them. Despite not fully understanding the nature of subtle energy, there are numerous methods designed to influence this energy matrix system such as acupuncture, yoga, acupressure, Reiki and tai chi, to name a few.

 
   

 Many Asian and indigenous cultures have studied these energies and methods for centuries and have successfully applied them to both physical and emotional health.There appears to be an interactive effect among the following:

  • Emotions  
  • Thoughts   
  • Beliefs  
  • Images  
  • Biochemistry   
  • Behaviors 
  • Bodily Sensations    
  • Electromagnetic and Subtle Energies

These influence each other and each may promote health and well-being.  The relationship you have to others, your community, the environment, and spirituality may also impact your health and well-being.  Your therapy may focus on any combination of these in order to most effectively help you obtain your goals.

Energy Psychology methods include:

 

Dynamic Energetic Healing (DEH)®

DEH® incorporates Energy Psychology with core shamanic principles and process-oriented therapy.  It connects a client to powerful spiritual resources mobilized to release the negative impact of trauma, overcome limiting beliefs, and heal often chronic symptoms.  DEH® works to stimulate blocked energy patterns associated with depression, anxiety, fear, anger, relationship struggles, low self-esteem, addiction and soul loss.

 

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

EFT is based on the discovery that imbalances in the body's energy system have profound negative effects on one's emotional well-being.  Correcting these imbalances, which is done by tapping on meridian points on various parts of the body, often leads to rapid relief.

 

Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT)

This technique uses a gentle acupressure pose near the bridge of the nose, gentle pressure on the occipital area at the back of the head, and stimulation of the sixth chakra point to effect a positive change. The client focuses on a particular problem, emotion, image or sensation during this pose.

 

Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT)

Energy Psychology accepts the premise that our thoughts, feelings and experiences are held and processed in our mind and body.  AIT accesses this information by focusing on chakra points that are highly sensitive especially in connection to traumatic residue.  AIT effectively dissolves the grip of trauma-based issues and other mental and emotional dysfunction.  It also works to install positive beliefs and thoughts to improve daily functioning.

 

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD is the term for a set of normal reactions to a traumatic, scary or bad experience. These include natural disasters, military combat, car accidents, sexual or physical assault, physical injury, and child abuse or neglect among others.

People suffering from PTSD survived a terrifying experience that left them feelings helpless, frightened and in a fight, flight or freeze response. Although the trauma may have occurred months or years ago, the survivor continues to have problems. They mentally re-experience the traumatic event, avoid stimuli associated with the event, and generally feel "numb" or hyper alert.

In addition to the emotional component of these devastating events, many survivors also have physical problems due to the trauma itself that will affect their functioning for a long time.

Mental health professionals have learned that there are far more people suffering from PTSD than they had previously realized. Many PTSD survivors have just been getting by trying to cope. Without treatment, the problem may intensify. Progressive symptoms may lead to relationship conflict, child abuse, alcohol and drug abuse, long-term depression and anxiety, and low self-esteem.

 

Post-partum Depression/Anxiety (PPD/PPA)

Most parents expect the upcoming birth of their child will be a time of joy and fulfillment. Yet, the truth is that as many as half of all women experience some depression or anxiety after giving birth with about 20% remaining depressed or anxious for months or even years. Most of the time, these symptoms are temporary but for some women, these symptoms can continue and lead to marital conflict and a lack of attachment with their baby.

A mother can be completely unprepared for a range of frightening, confusing and upsetting emotions during her pregnancy and/or postpartum year. Often mothers feel ashamed, inadequate, guilty, and too afraid to admit their feelings during a time when they feel they should be joyful. Some women experience birth trauma (for more information see tab PTSD/Birth Trauma)

Often doctors and therapists don't recognize the symptoms of PPD/PPA. Husbands and family members don't know what is happening to their partner or what to do.

  • Exaggerated highs and lows

  • Dramatic changes in feelings ranging from sadness to thoughts of suicide
