What is Energy Psychology?

Energy Psychology is a mind and body approach, with more than one hundred fifty published peer-reviewed research papers, on anxiety, trauma, depression, weight control, and other topics. Energy Psychology also fosters positive states of mental health, allowing clients to move from surviving to thriving.  Clients learn to apply self-care techniques, using natural healing from energy channels in the body including meridians, chakras and biofields, while practicing cognitive approaches. The mind and body relax, allowing a natural state of wellness to emerge.

Logosynthesis uses the power of words to remove frozen energy patterns in the mind, body and spirit, returning the natural flow with Essence to meet the daily needs of current reality. Dr. Hops practices Bengston Method and Blue Diamond healing which are innovative consciousness approaches to wellness.
