What is Energy Psychology?

Very Well Mind

Energy psychology (EP) is a collection of mind-body approaches for understanding and improving our wellbeing and mental health. This therapy looks at the relationship between thoughts, emotions, sensations, and behaviors, and known bioenergy systems (such as meridians and the biofield). It is believed that these energy fields exist, and interact, within individuals and between people.

An energy psychologist works on the emotional and physical issues that are present in the client’s personal energy field. Energy psychologists believe that the mind and body are related and if blocked through lived trauma and other external factors can lead to illness.

It is said that through energy psychology treatments that these blockages in our energy fields can be released and allow us to live more energetically happier lives.

As you can see, she is tapping on different parts of her face and hand, these are meridian points.
