REGRESSION HEALING - EMOTIONAL BODY BALANCING
WHAT IS EMOTIONAL BODY BALANCING?
By Michael Strelcheck
Today's fast-paced life styles are creating emotional hurtles
for just about everyone.
As soon as we adust to one situation in our life
along comes something else which
forces us to deal with a new set of
emotional circumstances. A sudden job change,
a conflict with a friend,
maybe an illness in the family or perhaps an abrupt end
to a relationship.
How's a person to cope?
Many times after a sudden emotional change we may feel a loss, or worse,
depression which leaves us with a lot of anxiety and hurt but with little
understanding of how to deal with the emotions of change. For years
counseling and modern psychological therapies have been assisting
in dealing with emotional change and healing. Today these
fields are in a
creative growth cycle. Because of the public's demand
for more efficient ways
of helping individuals cope with emotional stress
many new techniques have been developed to accelerate healing. One of these
exciting new techniques is
known as "Emotional Body Balancing" or EBB.
Emotional Body Balancing incorporates some of the traditional counseling
methods with new techniques of relaxation to help the individual more
contact their feelings and the reason behind their emotional
Emotional Body Balancing is geared towards the client's comfort ease of
expression and feeling of security. The treatment room is designed to have
atmosphere which is safe and emotionally comforting. Soft colors
room with serene artwork which create a feeling of home. The
lights are dimmed
and usually the sounds of some relaxing music fills the
room. The client lays
down on a soft table and is covered with a warm
blanket to help provide a sense
of security. The EBB practitioner
gently guides the individual into a relaxed
state of mind, depending on
the practitioner, the individual's relaxation can be
enhanced with breathing
exercises, guided imagery or with a Reiki energy
treatment. An EBB client is lying down, relaxed, eyes closed and focused
inward in a warm nurturing environment. This atmosphere creates an easier
for someone to confront deep or strong emotions. This is opposed to
the usual counseling session (with a therapist and client "eye to eye"
in a bright
lit room) which can sometimes leave the client feeling
exposed and judged.
The relaxed state of mind eliminates a lot of the mind chatter we experience
during our daily activities. With the mental chatter reduced, the client is
quickly sift through their feelings and thoughts and recognize
just what is
troubling them or in most cases the feelings that have
not been recognized.
This "lay down counseling" is a much faster way of uncovering exactly
bothering someone emotionally. Once the client is relaxed
the practitioner assists
the person to talk through the issues coming
up within their own mind. The
wonderful thing about the EBB technique
is the client identifies the issues or
problems most pressing at the time
of their session. This is a radical departure
from traditional counseling
practice where the counselor diagnoses
the individual's problem.
This new approach allows the individual to discover their own feelings
are real to them rather than STRUGGLING TO FIND OUT WHAT TO FEEL!
This is the power of this healing technique! To heal emotional wounds the
individual must be ABLE TO RECOGNIZE THEIR FEELINGS and
before they can understand their meaning. This relaxed
and safe space
that the EBB practitioner creates allows a person to realize
emotinal feelings much more quickly and gently than having a friend
"You are feeling this so you must do this in your life."
The simple process of
assisting the client to discover their own feelings
and helping them to develop
their own answers leaves the client with an
The person leaves the session with an idea of what to do
next. Because of this
fact EBB is very effective in emotional crisis
HEALING NEGATIVE BEHAVIOR PATTERNS
Emotional Body Balancing is also highly effective in examining and healing
self-destructive behavior patterns. Do you ever wonder why you do things
you regret later? When you get close to accomplishing a goal you've
for a long time, do you find yourself doing something
"strange" to prevent that

or even worse run from success
because you're not sure if you can handle it.
Where do these behaviors come from?
EBB sessions can reveal why you behave the way you do during certain
Many of our emotional reactions are controlled by our

want to just

"You are a big baby and you cry too much!" You believed what your

In that moment
you placed a command in your subconscious mind that it should

to realize the response stays in force until the individual
decides to change it.
Most individuals do not realize that old decisions
are held in the subconscious
and they are operating without our needing
to consciously start them. This
particular decision from the example
continues to prevent you from crying from
childhood right through your
adult life. What happens to all the emotional energy
that isn't released?
It remains held within the physical body building up more and
pressure on our emotions. Suddenly something happens in you life which
causes you some very real emotional pain. You can not seem to find a
to release or express your pain. For some reason you find you
and yet you feel instinctually you should. You may become
irritated. You decide to come in for an EBB session to see if you can get to the
bottom of why you are feeling irritated. First the practitioner gently relaxes
you and assists you in releasing some of the emotional energy held from
your current situation. Then the practitioner asks you to remember
you made a decision about how you should express your emotions.

memory of when you
decided you would no longer allow yourself to cry
because it made you look
like a "big baby." Once that decision is
found and acknowledged you can
then decide to release the programmed
response from the subconscious and
replace it with a healthier decision.
"From now on I will cry when I feel
the need to!" The example is a simple one but it gives you an essence of
how the healing takes place. Many of our emtotional patterns are more complex
than the one
given and may take several sessions before the client can put
a total understanding of why they decided to respond in
