I am an advocate for meditation. However, trauma, anxiety and other emotional problems can interfere with the health benefits of meditation and can even make it hard to meditate at all. Fortunately, Energy Psychology can help.

Energy psychology is based on the broad theory that mental health and physical health conditions are related to an altered flow in the body’s energies and energy fields. The idea that the body’s energy can be shifted to produce emotional, mental, sometimes physical healing and spiritual development is a root of many ancient and holistic approaches to medicine and wellness.
Energy psychology research points to energetic interventions regulating energetic signal which when combined with evidence-based exposure retrains the brain and helps individuals overcome many physical and emotional reactions affecting health and well-being. Traumatic events trapped in the mind-body system can have a negative impact on a person's outlook, experiences, emotion regulation, and ability to relate to others. It has been demonstrated through peer review studies that energy psychology techniques can help a person in therapy release these events more rapidly than they might with talk- therapies alone.
A basic principle underlying energy psychology, as well as many other types of therapy, is the idea that traumatic memories and fears are problematic for some individuals because these memories and fears create a state called hyperarousal. Hyperarousal can be described by increased psychological and physiological activity involving muscular tension, decreased tolerance for pain, feelings of dread, jumpiness, difficulty sleeping, and increased emotional response. Many types of therapy, especially those that treat conditions such as anxiety and posttraumatic stress, help people reduce states of hyperarousal.
Energy psychology approaches are one of the best ways to remove negative feelings and emotional blocks to achieving success.
