What is Emotional Release Technique ©      

ERT is a brief, effective psychotherapy that influences brain/body/emotions reprogramming technique, where you gently tap on specific acupuncture points on the body with your fingertips, while you repeat a phrase quietly within.  

ERT it is a brief and rapid stress management & psychotherapy protocol that helps with releasing negative emotionally charged energy that is stagnate in the body. In Chinese medicine, we know that emotional stagnation can manifest into inflammation, pain, and create imbalance in the body and mind. ERT focuses on the relationship between thoughts, emotions, sensations, and behaviors and known bioenergy (meridians, aura,and bio-field ). It is known as Energy Psychology. 

ERT works similar to acupuncture, but using the means of tapping on specific acupuncture points on the body   Its proponents say that it can heal a variety of emotional, mental and physical ailments through specialized "tapping" with the fingers at meridian points.   Within minutes, you can often re-balance your body’s autonomic nervous system and witness painful feelings dissolve or lessen. While the process is simple, you are allowing the innate wisdom of your body to release the core of your sufferings that no longer serve you!

Applications of Energy Psychology and Tapping on Acupuncture Points?

"Stress and trauma are stored in our limbic system, one of the oldest parts of our brain. Our limbic system developed pre-verbally, which is why years of talk therapy often do not reach the core energetics of our stress.
Tapping sends a tiny electromagnetic pulse that down-regulates the limbic system and lets the brain and nervous system know "it's okay." The Tapping releases the stressful negative emotions associated with painful memories and relegates these to a more neutral part of the brain."
-Marcella Friel

ERT applications incorporate natural energetic components into the treatment process that include, but are not limited to, meridians, chakras, aura, biofields, and bio-electrical and electromagnetic activity of the body, the nervous system and the heart.. Some sessions are focused on the way in which thought and intention are expressed in the bioenergy system (energy system and also body), and explore the therapeutic value of precise use of language and congruent intention. The ERT approach adapts and integrates easily into most psychotherapy models, healthcare orientations, and models of performance enhancement. ERT approach is often exceedingly rapid, has little to no adverse effects, are usually experienced as self-empowering by patients, and are easily amenable to self-help protocols, influencing peace and relaxation within.

ERT is a technique that works with the whole body-mind system, energy psychology facilitates rapid positive change and optimal psychotherapeutic outcomes, and is aligned with the latest findings from neuroscience and traumatology. ERT helps to treat psychological and emotional problems, facilitate health and wellbeing, and improve human performance.
