BEAM then peels away these layers, one by one, with a chakra-based procedure and vials imprinted with emotional/toxin vibrational frequencies. See www.beamtherapy.org
Dynamic Energetic Healing (DEH) was created by Mary Hammond, MA, LPC, DCEP; Howard Brockman, LCSW; and Nancy Gordon, LCSW. It integrated their learnings from various energy psychology trainers.

Family Constellation Work, developed by German psychotherapist Bert Hellinger, teaches that the family as a whole has a soul. Actions of every member impact the whole family system, and leaving anyone out hurts the whole system. See www.hellinger.com
Focusing, the work of Eugene T. Gendlin, PhD, provides direct access to bodily knowing by “listening” to a physical symptom long enough to interact with it. Staying with these physical clues opens up a wealth of information to use for change. See www.focusing.org
Guided Self Healing (GSH), developed by Andrew Hahn, PsyD, uses a psychospiritual mind-body framework for healing and transformation. Muscle testing accesses the client’s inner wisdom to remove energetic blocks to creating one’s dreams and intentions. See www.guidedselfhealing.org
The Healing Codes, originated by Alex Loyd, ND, PhD, use muscle testing both to find the origin of the stress involved in a problem and to identify a series of hand positions a client can use to activate healing within the body. Practitioners teach clients who get the Healing Codes package how to use these sequences and corresponding affirmations for self-help. See www.thehealingcodes.com
Healing from the Body Level Up (HBLU), developed by Judith A. Swack, PhD, finds blockages to self-actualization using muscle testing to connect with a person’s knowing at the deepest level of being. Then HBLU teaches people how to remove these interfering patterns at all levels: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. See www.jaswack.com
Healing Touch developed by Janet Mentgen, BSN, RN, HNC, CHTP/I, as a medically based energy therapy training program for nurses.

See www.jmttechnique.com

NeuroModulation Technique (NMT), the Feinberg Method, developed and taught by Leslie S. Feinberg, D.C. since 2002, is based on the concept that an important aspect of disease is informational—that wrong instructions result in wrong function. Rather than treat any specific disease, NMT uses muscle response testing and other energetic assessment to identify and correct the informational basis of illness, releasing the mind-body’s natural ability to heal itself of physical and emotional problems. Commonly improved or resolved problems include chronic pain, TMJ syndrome, childhood and adult food and environmental allergies, and auto-immune conditions. See www.neuromodulationtechnique.com
Psychoenergetic Healing (PEH), the work of Martin F. Luthke, PhD, DCEP, and Linda Stein-Luthke, brings in the metaphysical realm by calling in Beings of Light and setting therapy inside sacred pyramids of light, anchored at the four corners and the apex by archangels. See www.u-r-light.org
REMAP, developed by Steve B. Reed, LPC, LMSW, LMFT, DCEP, assesses with client self-report rather than muscle

Therapeutic Touch (TT), cofounded by Dolores Krieger and Dora Kunz, balances and promotes the flow of energy in the human energy field. Kunz used her natural ability to perceive blockages and disturbances in the rhythms in a patient’s energy field to develop an understanding of the universal healing field from which both patients and healers can draw healing energies. See www.therapeutictouch.org
Theta Healing dialogues directly with the unconditional love of the Creator for all that is. For more information and the extraordinary story of its developer, Vianna Stibal, see www.ThetaHealing.com

TFT is highly effective with trauma, phobias, and anxiety disorders. See appendix E and www.tftrx.com
