What are sessions? And What is Energy Psychology?

The sessions are a blend of mind/body therapies and self help techniques, using the latest developments in the fields of psychology, acupuncture, kinesiology, integrative medicine and neuro-science. Methods include working with the human energy system providing relief from mind-body distress, using meridians, acupoints, chakras and the biofield.

Energy Psychology (EP) focuses on restoring the natural flow of energy within your body by combining Eastern approach to the mind and body, with Western psychology and psychotherapy. Together these techniques address the physical, emotional and cognitive practices of unease in health, emotional dysfunction and mental patterns at the most fundamental levels of our conscious and subconscious mind, body and spirit.

Traditional psychotherapy utilizes the power of speech to transform emotions through talking about one’s feelings, experiences and issues. The process often helps the patient to come to a better understanding of oneself, develop new ways of viewing things, and begin to consider new alternatives. However, discussion alone does not have the power to significantly change one’s innermost world nor make one happy. By holding onto an issue only makes it heavier and keeps you connected to it, as well as affecting those around you.

What can energy psychology do for me?

Energy Psychology is a blend of techniques that disrupt, change, and manipulate your brains conscious and sub-conscious connections, releasing the patterns held in your body. By deleting and clearing these files permanently, it is like having a yard sale, you will be free from these limiting beliefs, habits and thought patterns. 

Any mental or physical conditions, memories or situations can be improved by making peace with how you interact or view it, which in turn changes the way you experience it and feel it. Thus, changes in your thoughts then change your health. The body always follows the thoughts!

How does Energy Psychology work?

Your body is composed of energy pathways and energy centers that are in a dynamic interplay with your cells, organs, moods, and thoughts. Your thoughts/words send send off chemical/hormonal reactions in your body. When you flip, change or shift these energies you can change your health, emotions, and state of mind. The technique centers on accessing and changing the energy in the meridians, acupressure points, chakras and bio-field systems, to shift states of bodily experience and clears emotional disturbances in the energy body. This is done by addressing a problem i.e. a negative emotion, a traumatic incident, a bad feeling, or limiting belief, which is normally triggered when someone says something, or you recall a memory, that has caused emotional upset. When recalling an upsetting incident, which triggers in you an emotional response, it causes a disturbance in your mind/body system and creates neurological changes causing anchors in your consciousness. Using powerful methods can loosen up the model of the subconscious reformulating into healthier balance of self talk. Tapping acupuncture points (especially the fight or flight meridian points) will clear/delete this programs neutralize the issues, stories and programs running behind the scenes to create peace with these memories to be replaced with inner peace.

We start with your story around the issue or issues. By addressing the story we then go in and release it, clear it, and let it go with the intention of making peace within our selves. Owning what is inside and taking responsibility of your role in it then creates an opportunity to make peace with it. What we resist –persists. We no longer have to address these files once they are clearly deleted. 

Let It Go and Make Peace Within

Learning to make peace with our core issues creates a whole new world that begins to change on how you view life and interact with it. By releasing and letting go, the imprinting is now flipped freeing you from illness and negative patterns. These changes often happen within only minutes of treatment, and yet the inner transformation is often profound and enduring. There is a large generalization effect of treatment – meaning that the treatment of one issue often causes resolution in many other issues. Using a combination of therapies Valarie McKenzie has been trained in and studied with specialize design phrases, creates a release, a change. No longer anchors are now associated with the condition. We have re-wired the experience, the emotions. Whatever is Wired together, Fires together.
