Emotional Release Treatment
Throughout history, emotions have been examined as a possible culprit in the creation of illness. Recent research in the area of "psychoneuroimmunology" indicates a direct correlation between stress and the functioning of the physical body, including the immune system. Long ago, the Chinese developed the Five Element Theory, which correlates specific emotions to the acupuncture meridians. In my practice, I use homeopathy. Homeopathy works along meridian pathways and in conjunction with the immune system. I begain to see a new pattern to pursue as the ancient knowledge of acupuncture and homeopathy started to intersect the newer research in psychoneuroimmunology.
Five Element Theory of acupuncture teaches that each meridian of the body has a corresponding emotion. In turn, each emotion has a corresponding electromagnetic energy pattern. Since acupuncture meridians are energy channels corresponding to organs, and each organ stores specific emotion, (energy pattern), we can easily begin to see the relationship between disease and our emotions. For example, the liver meridian may show weakness when a person resists anger. Taking it one step further, we already know that homeopathy works in a similar energetic way to stimulate and activate the immune system. The correlation of homeopathy with the Five Element theory is a perfect marriage of nature and science.
Emotions are stored in the body in consistent and detectable electromagnetic patterns. They can be identified, isolated and eliminated by gaining awareness of their existence.
What might this look like during a session? Well, let's set up a scenario leading to a first office visit. Imagine a child who is raised in a home where there is financial struggle. The child may perceive his parents' attitude about money to be one of insufficiency, fear of not enough money, or of money being difficult to get and keep. The child identifies with the fear of a lack of money. Fear lodges in the kidneys, according to the Five Element Theory. As the child enters adulthood, he will most likely have experiences that directly reflect his perceptions, learned from the parents, about money. His unconscious resistance to "lack of money" creates the experience for him of "lack of money," which reinforces the fear energy. He may not even be remotely conscious of his parents' attitude about money. Potentially, a kidney weakness may begin to develop and perpetuate until the stressing belief or emotion is released.
When we resist an emotion, the resistance itself creates an electromagnetic charge of energy which may affect neurotransmitter production storing on a cellular level in the organ or gland that correlates to the particular emotion. Over time, as the pattern of resistance continues, this charged energetic pattern creates even more of a burden on the particular organ or gland.
From an acupuncture point of view, if a person were to have the malfunctioning organ surgically removed, the stored electromagnetic antagonist (resisted emotion) would only travel into another part of the body.
The traditional psychological model that most of us have been taught -- or by which we have been influenced regarding emotions -- does not actually release the specific emotions for the body. It is, however, valuable in helping the patient to better understand his or her psyche and emotional history.
When clients come to me, I assist them in becoming aware of the emotional aspect of their physical complaints. I begin a body reading of their energy by testing acupuncture and reflex points. This evaluation can be originated with a body condition, or with a feeling or emotion. Within a very short period of time, the emotional charge dissipates and the patient frequently reports a concurrent abatement of certain physical sensations related to their original condition.
ERT (Emotion Release Treatment) is an energy medicine technique used to treat and release negative emotions and problematic behavior. It is based on the principle that negative emotions and stressful and/or traumatic experiences cause a disruptive charge to the body's energy system. I discovered that tapping on particular acupuncture channel points released the disturbance from the body's energy field and nervous system thus restoring balance and calm. ERT Therapy Treatments are powerful and can have very dramatic effects on the whole persons mental.emotional and physical wellbeing..
The ramifications of this are exciting, especially since it can be applied to a wide variety of issues such as: addictions, phobias, abuse, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, physical pain and disease, emotional pain, ADD, as well as areas of self improvement and attaining peak potential.
