Energy psychology is coming into its own as a bonified field of psychology. It originally developed from applied kinesiology and muscle testing. According to Eugene Gendlin, psychotherapy is about energetic shifts, called a felt shift, that happen when someone finds new meaning on a life issue. There are interesting tapping techniques that can activate energy for change, but there are also soothing techniques that relax, comfort, and release feelings that are trapped inside the body and can hold pain and memories that restrict our ability to let go and release the tension etc that is held inside. Body postures are remarkable as expressions of our inner challenges and reflect primordial movements.
