Press Release: New Method for Depression Often Works When Nothing Else Will
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB)--Until recently, few conditions have been as difficult to treat as depression. Depression is exhausting, makes everything a struggle, and interferes with every facet of life.
Psychiatrists used to approach depression and other emotional conditions with talk therapy, but discussing the past seldom brought relief. Now psychiatrists use psychoactive drugs to treat brain chemistry imbalances. While this approach may suppress symptoms, it doesn't address the imbalances' underlying causes, and when the drugs are discontinued, symptoms recur.
Fred Gallo, Ph.D., a Pittsburgh-area psychologist and editor of the book Energy Psychology in Psychotherapy, uses something entirely different. He asks patients to focus on unhappy events, but at the same time he has them gently tap on key acupuncture points. This method is called EFT, or Emotional Freedom Techniques.
"Using EFT," he says, "I have successfully treated fears, phobias, depression, trauma, and addictions. Its effects are rapid, dramatic, and deep."
Since developing EFT fifteen years ago, Gary Craig, an engineer educated at Stanford University, has trained thousands of health care professionals in this innovative method. Some of these are licensed physicians who use it to augment their medical approaches.
"Depression responds very well to EFT," he says. "In most cases the depressed feelings vanish or are materially reduced within a few minutes of applying it. No drugs are involved. Also, repeated applications of EFT often eliminate these feelings permanently so that they no longer reappear on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. "
According to Craig, many EFT practitioners report an 80-percent improvement rate in treating depression and other unresolved emotional issues. Its basic premise is that the underlying cause of all negative emotions, including depression, is an energy block in one or more of the body's meridians, the same energy pathways mapped thousands of years ago by Chinese physicians.
Often described as "emotional acupressure," EFT works by balancing the body's energy, releasing stored negative emotional responses to past trauma, guilt, and anger. Without its emotional fuel, depression can't start its engine.
EFT may be the world's fastest-growing self-help technique. Every week, between 5,000 and 10,000 people download Gary Craig's free EFT instruction manual, his weekly newsletter has 420,000 subscribers, and the number of health care practitioners who, like Dr. Gallo, incorporate EFT into their daily work has been growing exponentially.
