The Encyclopedia of Energy Medicine by Linnie Thomas is a considerable work on the various modalities which involve the transfer of energy to provide relief to different parts of the body. The Emotional Freedom Technique utilizes the tapping of meridian endpoints to create positive changes in the emotional and physical health of patients. Ohashiatsu utilizes gentle finger pressure to provide a therapeutic relief throughout the body.

The dynamics of Thought Field Therapy describe how eye movement changes unblock trapped energy in the nervous and circulatory system of patients. The therapy is utilized to conquer stress, anxiety and fears of all kinds. When TFT is applied to problems, the result is to address fundamental causes, balance the body’s energy system and facilitate the elimination of most negative emotions or fears quickly. Thought Field Therapy Freedom Techniques often work when all else fails. The therapy has been used for weight loss, smoking cessation, phobias, trauma relief and much more. Thought Field Therapy, or TFT, uses a tapping sequence in the form of a healing code to balance the body’s energy system .

Once re-balancing occurs, patients can eliminate most negative emotions expeditiously, while promoting the body’s own natural healing ability. TFT meridian tapping therapy is a highly effective, generally non-invasive and an uncomplicated self-help alternative to long-term, or drug-related psychotherapy.

Thomas goes on to discuss Cranio-Sacral Therapy, which aims to achieve myofacial release through manipulative bodywork  to break up stubborn pockets of chronic tension in the connective body tissue. During the course of our lives, the body becomes conditioned to stresses and traumas. If stresses or traumas are overpowering, they become locked in the body as sites of inertia until a release is achieved. These sites of inertia effect the natural rhythmical movements and hinder the ability of our body to manifest correct cellular level patterns or sequences.

Common causes of inertia are psychological stresses, the trauma of birth and environmental toxins. Due to an accumulation of these stresses, tissues can become imprinted with the memory of unresolved experiences until a release through stimulation.

Esogetic Color Puncture utilizes color and esogetic herb oil to activate dreams in order to release excess energy and tension. Colorpuncture involves focusing colored light on acupuncture (and other) points on the skin in order to energize powerful healing impulses. Light is absorbed by the skin and transmitted along energy pathways or meridians deep in the body. The light stimulates intra-cellular communication which supports healing.

The Resonance Re-pattern Institute uses breath re-patterning to achieve the release of unconscious patterns stored in early childhood experiences. The re-patterning is aimed at identifying and satisfying needs not satisfied as far back as pre-birth states in the womb. When your frequencies vibrate in sync (known as coherence), you will experience health. When your frequencies vibrate out of sync (known as non-coherence), you will resonate with and experience disease and pain. And so, the quality of your life depends on whether or not your frequencies are in sync or out of sync.

Resonance Repatterning is a system that allows you to identify and change your resonance from out-of-sync frequency patterns that cause stresses to in-sync frequency patterns which promote living life more fully.

Therapeutic Touch is another modality which brings the body, mind and emotions to the conscious level. Therapeutic Touch (TT) is used to balance and promote the flow of human energy. Research has shown that TT is useful to reduce chronic pain, improve wound healing, aid in relaxation, and ease the agonal phase which precedes death. Practitioners may perceive blockages and dysrhythms in a patient’s energy field, as well as subtle disharmonies inaccessible through other medical technologies or modalities.

The Encyclopedia of Energy Medicine is a wonderful book packed with alternative treatments for classic chronic pain issues. The scientific principles are explained clearly utilizing simple English to explain complex scientific concepts.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) – National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine is in the process of investigating the efficacy of the many energy field modalities like acupuncture. Mind-body practices focus on the interactions among the brain, mind, body, and behavior, with the intent to use the mind to promote health.

The experience includes service as a Board Director on the CPA Journal and Editor of the CPA Candidates Inc. Newsletter. In college, I worked as a statistics lab assistant. Manhattan College awarded a BS in an allied area of operations research. The program included courses in calculus, ordinary differential equations, probability, statistical inference, linear algebra , the more advanced operations research, price analysis and econometrics. Membership in the Delta Mu Delta National Honor Society was granted together with the degree. My experience includes both private account and industry. In addition, I've worked extensively in the Examinations Division of the AICPA from time to time. Recently, I passed the Engineering in Training Exam which consisted of 9 hours of examination in chemistry, physics, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, probability/ statistics, fluids, electronics, materials science/structure of matter, mechanics, statics, thermodynamics, computer science, dynamics and a host of minor subject areas like engineering economics. A very small percentage of engineers actually take and pass the EIT exam. The number has hovered at circa 5%. Several decades ago, I passed the CPA examination and obtained another license in Computer Information Systems Auditing. A CISA must have knowledge in the areas of data center review, systems applications, the operating system of the computer, disaster recovery, contingency planning, developmental systems, the standards which govern facility reviews and a host of other areas. An MBA in Accounting with an Advanced Professional Certificate in Computer Applications/ Information Systems , an Advanced Professional Certificate in Finance and an Advanced Professional Certificate in Organizational Design were earned at New York University-Graduate School of Business (Stern ).
