My Techniques

As human beings, we are not one-size-fits-all. This means that you’ll likely not be able to apply one technique to just fix everything right up. That’s ok though because I’ve studied so many techniques, created my own, and am known for figuring out exactly what works best — when, and for who. Phew. I was a very tough healing case myself so I’ve discovered lots of useful things I get to share with you.

The majority of the techniques I use fit into a type of energy therapy called energy psychology. Energy psychology addresses the relationship between the human energy system and thoughts, beliefs, and emotions.

Much of the success I have with clients comes not only from the techniques we use, but also knowing what to clear – emotional events, patterns, beliefs, and other blockages that prevent wellbeing. There are so many wonderful and effective techniques out there (I’m sure you know some too!), but also knowing what to apply those techniques to is crucial in seeing positive results.

Time code shortcuts for this video: The Sweep: 1 minute 33 seconds – used to clear stuck energy and reprogram beliefs. Thymus Test & Tap (TTT): 8 minutes 14 seconds – used to release stuck emotions and install positive emotions. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Chakra Tapping: 15 minutes 25 seconds – used to release stuck energy and trauma. Alternate Temple Tapping (ATT): 23 minutes and 16 seconds – used to release stuck energy and trauma (specifically addresses the fight, flight, or freeze response).

Description of Techniques
Tapping Techniques

Amy uses three tapping techniques; which are interchangeable: her self-created Alternate Tapping Technique (ATT), Gary Craig’s Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and Chakra Tapping (CT) which she adapted from the EFT process. Tapping is a simple and very effective self-healing tool for releasing emotional baggage and unhealthy patterns.

* Alternate Temple Tapping (ATT)

Alternate Temple Tapping (ATT) is Amy’s super simple technique that releases stress and trauma by working two ways: calming the fight, flight, or freeze response and using bilateral stimulation. It works incredibly well for releasing all types of emotional baggage and is very simple and effective.

* Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

Founded by Gary Craig in the early 90s, EFT combines the principles of acupuncture (without the needles) and talking! It’s a simple and effective tool based on the meridian system, a system of energy pathways in the body, originating in Chinese Medicine thousands of years ago. Where there is an imbalance, there is a corresponding blockage in the flow of energy through the meridian system, which contributes to emotional and physical symptoms. Gently tapping with the fingertip works to release the blockages.

* Chakra Tapping (CT)

The process of Chakra Tapping using the concept of EFT, was something I created and perfected during my own healing journey. Chakras are energy centers in the body. Emotional patterns and beliefs can prevent the energy from spinning and flowing thus imbalancing the body. Gently tapping on the chakras as we repeat certain statements helps to release these energies and restore balance. This process is similar to Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) above, but we are using different tapping points to affect different energies.

The Sweep Technique

The Sweep is a technique I created to very easily “sweep” energy blockages right on out of the subconscious mind. Using a very special set of phrases that I tested to be most powerful, we’re able to befriend the subconscious mind and offer it the freedom to let go of what no longer serves us. During the process, we are guiding the subconscious mind to choose freedom from(read: letting go of!) specific beliefs and emotions that have been holding us back. It’s a simple meditative script that you repeat while in a relaxed state.

Thymus Test & Tap (TTT) Technique

This technique is one of my favorites, adapted by me during my healing journey! The thymus gland is the master gland of the body’s immune system. The thymus gland is located in the emotional energy center of the body. In fact, it’s often called the “heart’s protector.” It’s responsible, energetically, for regulating energy flow throughout the entire body. It’s affected most by emotions related to not feeling safe, feeling attacked by life or others, and the energy of being unprotected. The thymus is so powerful, and connected to the rest of the body’s energy system, that almost any block or imbalance throughout that system can be affected by working with it.

Thymus Test & Tap is a simple technique where we identify unprocessed or stuck emotions in the body, and then utilize tapping on the thymus gland in a specific pattern to release those emotions. We then install positive emotions to help support the complete integration and healing process.

Other Tools

While I don’t consider the below tools “techniques,” I most definitely consider them a super integral part of my work. They get credit for some pretty awesome shifts in healing.

Metaphor Healing

One way I glean much of my information in order to help my clients, is to find metaphors in their emotional or physical symptoms. I believe our bodies are so intelligent; they are trying to talk to us all the time. I’ve become quite attuned to decoding the body’s symptoms and finding metaphors. This is something you can learn, too!

Intuition

Intuition is probably my most valuable asset as a practitioner. It’s something hard to describe in words, but it’s a knowing I get while working with a client. Often, what I call an “intuitive hit” leads me to just the right place or words we need in our session. Things or words that just come to me during our work together always astounds clients – and sometimes me, too! Over the years, my medical intuition has become dramatically sharpened. I’ll always share whatever I get intuitively so we can use it to help you move forward even faster.

Muscle Testing: Getting Answers from the Subconscious Mind

Much research has revealed the power of our subconscious minds. The subconscious mind is like a human computer, recording everything that has happened in our lives. Through my studies, I have come to believe the subconscious mind knows exactly what is going on with us, and how we can heal from it. A modality called muscle testing is a great way to get that information and I use it often in sessions. I also teach my clients how to use this for themselves.
