WHAT ARE MERIDIAN THERAPIES?

Meridian Therapy is a new therapy, and a product of the last two decades. It is the therapy for the New Millennium. There are many Meridian Therapies and this is a rapidly growing field in complementary medicine. It has its roots in Acupuncture and works with the body's energy lines or meridians.

An American psychologist, Dr Roger Callahan, was becoming increasingly dissatisfied with the usual therapeutic methods available to him. He investigated Eastern health practices, specifically those that involved tapping on meridian points. He found that with using this method he was able to bring about rapid change and permanent cure of previously intractable phobias.

Over the next 10 years he developed this method and a number of therapists who studied with Callahan went on to develop further therapies from his original idea. The most widely used of these is called "Emotional Freedom Technique" (EFT), developed by Gary Craig. It is based on the premise that "The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system". It has been hailed as "The miracle therapy" as so many astounding and rapid cures have happened using this method of tapping on various energy points.

The therapy can be easily taught to clients, who can use it on themselves at any time to relieve distressing symptoms, both physical and emotional.
