What is Energy Psychology and Energy Treatment Methods?
Energy psychology is a relatively new discipline based on Chinese acupuncture. Like acupuncture, stimulating specific points along twelve major pathways that are known as meridians, alters the body’s energy. Each meridian passes through a specific organ of the body. The entire system is interconnected so that the chi, (also known as life force, ki, prana, and life energy), travels from one meridian to the next. These meridians interact with a number of more concentrated energy fields called chakras.
The subtle energy (chi) that flows through your body is as important to your health and well-being as the more traditionally recognized bodily functions. Often when these energies become weak, disturbed or out of balance, we experience physical and emotional symptoms. In order to relieve these symptoms, the energy that flows through your body must be restored.

Thought Field Therapy (TFT)
Developed by Roger Callahan, Thought Field Therapy (TFT) is a meridian based, mind body therapy. TFT is based on the idea that a thought produces a specific electrical field and by tapping on various acupuncture meridian points in a specific sequence, the energetic source of a problem can be neutralized or eliminated.
This technique is extremely effective with anxiety, phobias, and trauma. Dr. Diane® is certified in Thought Field Therapy.
Emotional Freedom Therapy (EFT)
Simply stated, EFT developed by Gary Craig is an emotional version of acupuncture. Instead of using needles, however, you stimulate well-established energy meridian points on your body by tapping them with your fingertips. Thus, the process is easy for you to memorize and is portable so you can do it anywhere. It launches off the EFT Discovery Statement, which says…
“The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.”
This common sense approach draws its power from (1) time-honored Eastern discoveries that have been around for over 5,000 years and (2) Albert Einstein, who told us back in the 1920′s that everything (including our bodies) is composed of energy. These ideas have been largely ignored by Western Healing Practices and that is why EFT often works where nothing else will. It’s not that EFT is so stunning; rather, it is because conventional healing methods have simply overlooked the obvious. You will see that clearly as you allow EFT to bring freedom into your life where you thought none was possible.
Dr. Diane is an EFT practitioner, and trauma therapist. Information on this technique can be found in her new book, Coping with Concussion and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury.
Energy Medicine Treatments
QiGong is a system of exercise that incorporates physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused intentions to balance the energy in the body. It is used to improve health and has been known to help people alleviate pain and stress. The movements of QiGong reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality, and enhance the immune system. It has also been found to improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic and digestive functions.
Polarity therapy is a natural healthcare system based on the idea that each individual has an internal blueprint that forms the bases of every aspect of life, including personal achievement and illness. The goal of this system is to target blocks in an individual’s internal energy and treat the consequential symptoms by getting the person more in tune with their internal blueprint. When the body has returned to a balanced state, it is better able to heal itself.
Reiki is a method of energy healing developed in Japan in 1922. Reiki (rei meaning “God’s wisdom” and ki meaning “life force energy”) is a spiritually guided life force energy, similar to laying of the hands to allow the life force to heal the body. Reiki is very effective for stress reduction and relaxation, and works in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques
Therapeutic Touch is the medical form of QiGong and Reiki. Dr. Diane was trained in therapeutic touch.
Dr. Diane® has had the unique opportunity to train with three spiritual healers while visiting Bali. Dr. Diane® can help you to use your intuitive energies to sharpen your senses.
While participating in team sports, this type of training is very useful in increasing your awareness of other participants and therefore protecting yourself and increasing your performance. Overall health can be improved by using your energies to assist the body’s natural healing process.
