Energy psychology is the therapeutic process of combining energy techniques (working with the subtle energy systems in the body – the energy meridians and energy centers) with traditional therapeutic processes to effect rapid and lasting change. It is especially helpful in clearing trauma from the body so that it no longer adversely affects the individual.
The origins of these energy approaches began some 5000 years ago in China, India, and other ancient cultures as a natural approach to healing and have resulted in modern day acupuncture, Qi-Gong, Reiki, Advanced Integrative Therapy, Thought Field Therapy, Energy Diagnostic and Treatment Methods, Emotional Freedom Techniques, Tapas Acupressure Technique, Touch for Health and other energy healing approaches.
AIT is an in-depth approach that combines muscle testing and working with the energy centers with psychodynamic Jungian psychotherapy. It defines trauma as anything that when we think back on it, still has an upsetting emotional charge or physical sensations associated with it. AIT offers a complete psychotherapeutic approach for resolving this trauma on a cognitive, emotional, physical, and spiritual level. It provides the tools to easily get to and resolve unconscious material in a way that few other approaches do. AIT is taught by members of a non-profit institute that provides certified training and supervision in this approach.
