Energy Psychology Is Evidence-Based

The National Library of Medicine, in a comprehensive review of emerging subspecialties like "energy psychology," has shifted the landscape of evidence-based mental health treatments. This review, focusing on 245 clinical trials and meta-analyses, underscores the effectiveness of protocols involving tapping on acupuncture points, a prominent intervention in energy psychology.

In contrast to the now-outdated SAMHSA article, which was initially validated by NREPP (the National Repertory of Evidence-Based Practices and Procedures, a division of SAMHSA in the U.S.), it's important to note that NREPP has been defunded and no longer exists. This reinforces the need for updated sources, and the new evidence suggests that acupoint tapping protocols are not only effective but also rapid, durable, and capable of producing physiological changes. With a foundation of at least six clinical trials supporting each premise, this research provides a robust basis for claims about the approach's efficacy.
